Linux stuff:
skvidal just posted a long ramble on FC4 directions. Great stuff. He should check out: Hydra!

Need to set up a FAQ site for RHEL, the questions are just getting goofy now on the lists.

work stuff:
Great week this week.. Using new tape library, NBU is happy, new listserv-box is ready for Jean, less noise from the boxen, less people around due to Fall Break, mirrors are *much* happier, fixed a few other odd-n-ends. All in all a productive week where I didn't go cRaZy.

w00t! I got a promotion! Friday was a good day. Interview in the morning, promotion in the afternoon (thanks to UGA's oddball HR, you need to apply for open positions just to get a promotion.. there isn't a way for someone to say "you're promoted"). Whatever, it's a bit more cash and a hard money line. Rock on.

Nice weekend drinking beer, doing *nothing* really productive, trying to be helpful on taroon-list, paid the bills, planning for Ireland, and light puttering about the house. Was really burnt out this week and between me getting the new job, Jess finding out she'll be teaching in the Spring was just enough crap off my shoulders to allow me to relax. Tommorrow might even be fun again.

Why was I burnt out? Carpooling and dealing with moving dns3 and surreal took almost all of my week. Punt downtime Thursday sucked too, SMTP AUTH turned its self on even though admind said it was off. This cause ever Netscape client to get a login prompt when sending mail. This got all the directors and others hot and bothered. I hate those things.

Oh, many thanks to ~spot for cleaning up some bugzilla tickets for me on Friday!

Well... Advogato went down for a good long time, i just haven't come back till now.

Random thought for the day: How the hell are some people so damn productive? I just don't understand how people get so much done at work and still have time for things like rebuilding RHEL, much less fun.

I used to have that much time when I was in college and didn't have 2 dogs. Yah. Dogs. Oh and my job is burning me out. that's it.. yeah.. it's my job's fault.

Today I will either - Rebuild my home machine and then backup Jess' - Play WindWaker.

Since the computer sits about 8 feet from the bed, I'm really not excitied about turning it back on, the slience at night has been nice. Plus it's raining.

Oh hell.. I guess I should be productive and stop bitching about it :)

Ha! I just turned on DNSBLs for UGAMail. It's fun to tail the logs and look at the rejections.

In other news.. pitchers of beer are, in fact, a bad thing.

WOW! Damn near four years later! I was reading skvidal's entries on fedorapeople and then realized that I too had a Advogato account. Heh.

Well, 4 years later: I'm still in Georgia. I work for the university as a "Unix Systems Administrator" and get to play with linux and fun things all day long. I seem to have dropped any and all intrest in "interactive media" now didn't I? Eh.. It's overrated.

Maybe I'll remeber to psot here a bit more.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
