*not chronological, summary of events since my last posting*

Did a lot of work on the 'snort' debian package today.
If I counted correctly, i actually fixed 12 bugs in a single upload! :) - i hope the reporting-thing works better now, i almost completely reworked it (fixed some timeouts in the mailer-pipe, did some cosmetic changes).
It should also be possible to use it for dialup users now - good!

Worked a bit more on some LDAP stuff at work. My python scripts now know what 'users' are, and can differentiate between them. Adding and deleting works too. Worked it into the frontend as well.

Fixed DNS stuff. reverse works fine now. got a new block of IP's, transitioned to those. Waiting for the TTL to pass, so i can actually remove the old ones (12 IP adresses on a single interface looks, erm. 'messy'.).
Got myself a nice reverse for IRC.
Whipped up some HTML and perlscripts for http://www.bzimage.org. We're publishing 'incremental kernel patches' there, so people can patch their (linux) kernel from say ac7 to ac8 without having to apply the patch to a stock 2.4.2 kernel. It's actually working quite well, people on the LKM (linux kernel mailing list) are positive about it, and we're getting quite a lot of hits. Cool!
Been looking for a good _anonymous_ way to do news-posting. There's lots of anonimizers out there, but no nice and easy way to allow me to do some posting with 'tin'. The link between anonymous posters and spam is quickly made, so i guess it's good that you need to go trough so much trouble. On the other hand it's a pity that the internet needs anti-spam measurements - in particular the anonimity can be great...
