Desktop Linux at Work
We'll have an extra PII/233 at work soon, as a new desktop rotates in and that old one rotates out. I've decided to make it the Extra Computer, that just sits at a desk in case somebody else's system dies, we get a temp in, whatever. I'm going to wipe Windows from it and install Red Hat 8, and do my best to integrate it into the network. It seems like a good way to help ease into things.
Weird Bump
For the record, I've got a weird bump on my left hand, at the base of the first finger. I was rummaging around in a bunch of old boxes at the office yesterday, and it appeared about a half hour later. It looked and felt just like a mosquito bite. It was a little bit red and swollen this morning. As of this evening, the whole base of my finger is red, swollen, and warm to the touch. I've got joint pain, and the whole affair is very tender. People are far too quick to blame spiders for such things, and there just aren't any poisonous spiders (save for black widows, but my symptoms aren't appropriate) in central Virginia (USA), but I sure can't think of anything else. I'll go to my GP in the morning and see what he's got to say.

There. Now if I wake up dead, at least there will be some record of what happened. :)
