Started to upgrade my home network to Red Hat Linux 9. My wife’s workstation seems to be the simpliest, so first it goes.
Everything went not as good as I hoped it would, so I had to reinstall the box from scratch. All configuration is left for later.
Just put up the pictures of hazard’s and my cars for your viewing pleasure.
Just came home from the night shift in the NOC. Did some perl programming and I feel so happy and relaxed that I can’t sleep.
We still miss missing the auto-moto show. It is time to make our own. Hazard and I grabbed a camera and went out to make few pictures of our cars. Actually we planned to visit the car wash before that, but all of them are closed at 6:00pm. Nothing can stop us, though. Hopefully Hazard will upload the pictures in the next couple of days and I will rip them off, resize and minimize and put them here for your watching pleasure too. Stay tuned…
In other news, Olga read an article in the Linux Journal about new Gnome and now she terribly wants an update. It seems as a nice opportunity for Red Hat Linux 9 installation. Give me a day or two to grab the CDs from the office and I’ll tell you all about it.
There was a gossip that some auto-moto show is going on somewhere in Cyprus. So, my wife, brother, hazard and myself got in the car and went to Nicosia to check things out. No auto-moto show. There was some furniture exhibition instead. We saw some sofas, kitchens, and baby rooms. I’ve noticed that a lot more nice ladies visit furniture show offs than computer shows. Strange though…
Beer and buffalo wings afterwords to compensate the trip. I’ve got the Chesters Frequent Guest Card and a polo shirt. Surprise-surprise.
It looks like in 15 minutes it will one month since I’ve updated the structure of the site. Happy birthday!
P.S. Time to remove those DEBUG messages all over admin interface.
I feel more and more like a programmer. PHP days are not yet over with Knowledge Base (ala Faq-O-Matic) built for our NOC web interface. Perl comes handy for all sorts of report generation. And the “Remind yourself of DocBook” hour happened twice yesterday and once today.
Friend of mine passed by with his new phone. Now, that’s so close to something I was looking for for a long time… I’ll get it with the next salary (or so I hope) – Sony Ericsson P800. Things which attract my attention are: advanced organizer with tasks and notes (finally!), digital camera, mp3 player, Opera browser, Java support, wireless handset with voice dialing (wow!), and stereo headphones for music and games. Now, that’s about as much as a man can ask for. The cost is acceptable too… one of the mentions I’ve seen was roughly 250 British pounds.
