So, the Galaga game is still broken at work. Brian said that he was getting Ops a present... and I sure as hell hope it's either a poof chair or a Galaga repair person with a bow on his head.

I realized, as I spent about 6 hours debugging backups for $BIG_NAME_OPEN_SOURCE_PROJECT the other day, that I do a hell of a lot more work for the Free Software community at my current job than I ever did at Linuxcare or Quicknet or on my own even.

I need to learn more Solaris and FreeBSD and how to write portable shell scripts. GAR. I think I get to learn BGP soon too. Wooooo. Last week I learned more about administering CVS repositories than I ever wanted to know.

The Free Dmitry train parked in my life for a few days last weekend, and I realized that I'm just not a protest sort of person anymore, not like I was ten years ago. I have indirectly lent a mobo, cpu, and RAM to the cause, and I hope that that will be sufficient. I'm certainly glad that there are others out there like Crackmonkey, Seth Schoen, Mr.Bad, et al, who have the energy and enthusiasm to lead the activities.
