I am a Network Administrator for Kiva Networking.
I am working on a few things for my job. The one that I am kind of interested in at the moment is a cable headend and modem management tool. I have permission and I'd like to release it as free software, but it isn't ready yet and I don't know if I will have the motivation to do it at home.

Looks like memphis is rocking. I got an answer to a question that had been bugging me for a while. The feedback rocks. Having it out there has made me motivated to work on getting it in better shape. I've made some incredible improvements over the last few days. I sort of wish I hadn't released it yet, but I would never have worked on it without releasing it. The next version will be much cooler. It is neat to see all the downloads. I think a lot of isp's probably have already written something like this and Cisco has a gui. I've never seen it though. But I am sure it is megabucks. We'll see. It is nice to have something of mine out there though.

So I haven't posted since October. Oh well. Life is hectic. I got Memphis, my terminal server software cleaned up and distributable. I probably did something stupid. I'm sure that I got my community strings out of there. Feel free to take a look. Don't look at my code. I'm self conscious.


bwh: Weird. My last fortune cookie was "Your success in life must be earned with earnest efforts."

I seem to fit into the "not posting much lately" category of advogatorist rather than the computer programmer, computer scientist, or angry young man (notice the Oxford comma).

This has been a good week for me. Been a pretty hard hittin' kinda guy at work. Lots of weird problems. Lots of trouble. Lots of people calling me at 7am, which is the best way to make it in to work at 8am. This week definitely went by quickly. That is usually good. Finally broke down and bought an Andrew Vachss novel. I'm not sure what I think. It is his latest book. It is ok. Very dark. Pretty well written. I haven't read any of his earlier books. This is the tenth in a series about the same guy. An anti-hero named Burke. I think I am going to have to go to the beginning and do some reading. We'll see.

I've been working on a cgi frontend to mon. There are a few out there but they aren't really what I want. I'm going with more of a devpatrol kind of look. I've been familiarizing myself with the Mon::Client module and I've put together a mock up. Once I get some functionality I will pull things into subroutines or maybe write a module. I'd like it to be just a one file drop in kind of thing. It seems like everything I write is incredibly localized. Makes distribution difficult.

I'm pumped to see Almost Famous tonight. I think it will totally rule. I'm psyched. I also want to see Original Kings of Comedy. I dig Spike Lee Joints. I don't have a car which makes it difficult to go see movies which are located on the outskirts of town. I'm a downtown kind of guy and all the downtown kind of movie huts have closed. It is a shame. squiggy and I are hopefully going to see Almost Famous tonight.

I've also been feeling kind of loopy. I don't know why. Doing lots of ed-patter. Which I find entertaining, but tends to annoy people. Conversation just gets kind of boring after a while. I think I probably have ADD. Looking at the lit Skud posted makes me wonder. Of course I always answer yes to all those questions. When I think I am depressed I answer yes to all the depression questions. I don't know. I think I am dyslexic as well. I'm just a depressed, dyslexic, ADD dude. And I think I've got testicular cancer. The good news is that I noticed that my body is shrugging off what appears to be poison ivy on my arm. Last summer I got poison ivy thrice in a two month period. It was rough. I took the prednisone cure which was surprising effective. Worked better than my old rub clorox bleach on it to kill the skin cells method. The good thing about bleach, though is that it is cheap. I think I am much healthier than last fall. I spent most of my last august drinking, smoking and doing bad things. Clean living. Will make. You healthy.

I'm amazed by the amount of people that think stallman is a crackpot. They think that he is some hyper anal license freak and that everything he says is just dogmatic crap. He may be an annoying long haired hacker, but he is usually right. The reason that the GPL has to be so precise is because it has to be bulletproof in a legal sense. Details matter. It shouldn't be that hard for some of you to imagine. And yes, we can go back to hacking and just writing code BECAUSE Richard Stallman and the GPL exist.

Today seems to be psychological show and tell day. squiggy is my bro and even if we live in different countries we will always be buds. I don't think you should look back on recent years as a waste. You WERE living. Sometimes you had fun. You may not have a college degree, but you have made up for that by kicking ass professionally. You may be too fat to race bikes, but you have a great ass. I think taking some time off for Stantime is a brilliant idea. You're young, you have disposable income, and you have great vacation benefits. And you know that I am down for whatever. You just say the word.

So, back to me. I'm really fucking edgy right now. I'm not riding very smoothly. I'm a teepee and a wigwam. Walking reduces my stress. I've up'ed my walking routine to about 2.5+ hours a day.
