comment Securing a SuperMicro IPMI BMC
Thanks for that great link. The short summary of the security issues is at fish2.com/ipmi/itrain-gz.html and the very short summary is, "you're utterly screwed." Sigh.

comment How do I stop Ubuntu from starting daemons I've not explicitly asked to run?
Sad to say, there appears to be no solution other than, "carefully check what software is running on your system after any change of packages," clearly a quite error-prone process.

comment Excessive clock drift on AMD Athlon prevents ntpd from synchronizing clock
As far as I can see, no it will not. My ntpd is running, not exiting. It's just not correcting the time while it's running, even when it spends hours with a (steadily increasing) difference under the panic threshold.
