A rather interesting article as linked off of SlashDot about Great Hackers.

I think all management should be made to read it, especially management in technical fields that have been technical themselves in the past.

That said, I am learning far too much about Radius than I really ever wanted to learn. Just finished and starting to test a 'radius client simulation' (ie: its pretending to be a NAS so we can test a testing-system POP by hammering it with real world radius data [with a bit of munging {I wonder if the word mung is used any more. Was used a lot when I was a a teenager}] in order to find out if we can break it before it rolls out live).

Assides from having to use a MS Windows workstation (with a dozen ssh shells open to development servers) I am very much loving this job. Great folk, great environment, free fruit.

Of course, ideally I'd love to get a Debian GNU/Linux workstation (rather than just the servers) and be able to work on it directly using Emacs. About time I got back to finishing off some coding projects at home.. Maybe its time to clean up the Book Catalog and upload it. And back into packaging for Debian. Actually, that might not be a bad idea, given one of my junior workmates is applying to become a Developer. Wooo hooo.
