Today
A few projects bouncing around the skull... don't know when/if I'll have the time to start on these. Particularly, I want to setup a VPN in the home lab to test the network perf when passing an encrypted webcam stream over NFS. :-P

Also trying to determine if anyone else has come up with a "packaged" product to do the following: one module to push formatted weblog data to an *sql backend... another module to pull this data and check for pre-determined errors (404's, 500's, etc.) and notify via custom methods (pager/email/etc). Yes, I know it can be setup with a minimum of effort using scripts and a db, but has anyone integrated this with an administrative front-end via cgi as an OSS or commercial product?

Sunday
Finished all of the fence posts, with the exception of one requiring something akin to a jackhammer. :-(
Started reading chapter one of Conway's OOP. Fascinating stuff.

Saturday
Worked on the fence, got about 7 posts in the ground. Went out to The Container Store with the wife, picked up a new Metro rack (this stuff rocks) for the office. Also ran by Borders in Germantown and [finally] found an in-store copy of Object Oriented Perl by Damian Conway. Got home, rearranged the office... pulled out the Ikea Jerker desk (beautiful, but takes up too much space). Installed the Metro racks, new home for many of my servers. Happy, happy!
