Tuesday: Feel guilty about lack of participation in things Linux related, so I'm spending a large chunk of time answering questions on the LFS mailing lists. Keep being pestered to start tidying up the cables in the server room, our IT 'Manager' is threatening to remove access, if only he would my life could be a better place to live, ho hum.

Am still getting to grips with the trust metric system on advogato, was surprised when I logged on this morning to find I'd been certified by a few people, nice to see. In turn I went through each of the people looking at the projects they were involved in and being distressed that I had actually used most of them so I was aware of the quality of coding, used this knowledge to rate them in turn. Not sure if that's right but it works for me.

Hmmm, talked someone though how to move the /boot partition onto another drive and I carried out the instructions my self to make sure I hadn't missed anything, then moved it back, X locked my machine and rather the use SysRq I just rebooted, guess who forgot to rerun Lilo?
Had the lovely LI prompt. One tomsrtbr+loadlin later and I'm back in business.

Moderate success on the Advanced Server Howto, left DNS be for the mo and carried on with squid and squirm, still cannot decide between Apache Proxy and Squid, Apache seems to do a better job of getting cache hits but Squid can do a hell of a lot, setup squirm so that it blocks 90% percent of web adverts, gave me a warm feeling inside.
