Not a monotreme.

Occasionally I'll update an entry if I spot a tyop or somesuch. Don't Panic.

I work for Red Hat Asia-Pacific as a systems administrator. Buy Red Hat products and services and keep me in beer.

Naturally, my rantings in this forum are not neccesarily the opinions of my employer, etcetera and so on and so forth, as if that isn't obvious enough.

Happy new year and all that.

In other news, those using (or considering using) the AMANDA backup suite might be interested in hanging out in the #amanda channel on I've made a start on a FAQ for the channel, feel free to give us some suggestion.

Mad propz to bradm for his help!

Oh yeah, buy Red Hat Advanced Server and keep me in beer.

Still not dead.

I'm a murderer.

Today I felt I had to certify someone, and not because of the contribution they've made to free software and its community. This is not a nice feeling at all. It would be nice to not care about issues like this, so I wouldn't feel compelled to make such a noxious little statement, but that's the price of having free will in a way.


In other news, the weather continues clement. In fact, the weather continues to be stinking bloody clement, most unseasonally so for Brisbane. 38C this Saturday, wah!

Project idea - hack so it produces RPM targets. Instantly, the hell of installing packages like RT2 and mangling your native Red Hat install (via chewing up the Perl RPMs) goes away (yes, I know debian can do this in a couple of ways). Come, my friends, let us ride once more into the breach, and &c!

Oh yeah, and let love rule.

See my entry for Aug 9.

Had some afternoon tea with mbp yesterday. He still won't port rsync to CP/M, though. Chiz chiz.
