Argh!!! I've been pounding my head up against the debian package of phpgroupware, and now I'm a little bit sore from it. I heard on the phpgroupware IRC channel that the debian packages are hosed. So I wasted alot of time trying to get them going, and I'm a bit miffed. So I guess it's a quick trip to the cvs and I'm golden, Ja?

I'm putting a simple script on all my debian boxen today, /sbin/upgrade, just because I'm lazy.

#!/bin/bash
apt-get update && apt-get -f -y upgrade && dpkg --pending --configure

I went to EUGLUG meeting last night, installing some low-end boxes to be used as web terminals for a community computer room. Details here.

Given my background, I have a new mantra... "Must get Cryptonomicon, must read Cryptonomicon". I knew this before, but now I know even more that I must get it and read it. I got John Katz's Geeks and the introduction itself was worth the price of the book, so I'm pretty happy with it, even though he has a shortage of lovers in the techie community.

Today was all spent calling people and trying to get things going on the money front. You just have to love IT recruiters sometimes.

I just got on the "Job Jar" for PEAK, in Corvallis. It's a list of projects that need people, but for the local linux community. Most of it is web schtuff, but it might be an interesting way to have a little bit of fun.

Musically, I've been listening to alot of Dr. Didg. very interesting guy, IMO. He learned the didgeridoo as a physics project, and now he can make it do all sorts of fun things. Add to that a bit of sampling, cool funk/jazz/world beats, and some electric background, and you've got a very good band.
