good day, bad day.

good day
Fixed the last remaining Redmond Linux Beta 1 bug and shoved it out the door. i announced it on freshmeat and already the flame mail's comin' in... but still a good day.

bad day
went in to work and found my HD crashed, gone gone gone. yes, it contained the only piece of RL work i haven't backed up. for five days. i suppose that'll teach me, but it still really sux.

family is begging me to come see them on vacation in a few weeks. trip will be rather expensive and liza says if we see my family we've got to see her family too. so more expense. plus for the past three years almost all our vacations have been family vacations: we fly together, we sit, we chat, we get bored, we leave. when do we get vacations to do what we want to do?

seriously considering not showing up this time.

smb authentication
so it's my turn to decide how to store netbios credentials in userland. in windows when you surf to a \\server\share your default credentials don't allow you to access, a gui dialog pops up asking you for a username/password [and perhaps domain]. how to do that in linux? email me if you have ideas pls. it's gotta be user and program agnostic but live in userland. welllll, i *guess* it could live in kernel land, but i don't think i want it there.

kudos on the salon piece. my wife reminds me that advogato means 'lawyer' in portuguese.
