Annoyances
Telfort still has no clue.. my cellphone still does not work, and I have had no luck at all reaching them. Their support number seems to be completely overloaded so I have no way to reach them and complain loudly. It's probably time to switch providers, and get a nice tripple-band GSM phone at the same time.

Another annoyance that seems to get more frequent is information that can't be released.. on occasion I get some very nice information that I would love to tell everyone (like the fact that Debian won the IDG/Linus Torvalds community award) but am not allowed to tell anyone yet. Probably an inevitable result of the fact that companies are a part of the free software world now and the accompanying worries about public image, appearance, etc. Anyone remember when we were just simply hacking on software? That feels like a long time ago..

Work
Finishing up little brother for Cistron. It seems to be working pretty well, except for this little memory leak we can't seem to find. We've been looking for it for quite some time now, but it keeps eluding this. Having a service monitoring tool take down the machine it is running on is not exactly a feature we were looking for.. it seems lb will be up and running soon though which means I can focus completely on my new job. Whee!
