"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
CHANGELOG: 2004.12.20
  • Some jackass turned off the machine that serves the estimating software.
  • Had to troubleshoot that fun dovecot bug.
  • Co-workers machine got owned and was hammering random machines on the Interweb with ssh brute force attacks. Common forensics software doesn't see shit (linux), but I'm not surprised.
  • Had to set up the firewall rules for reflection, as I forgot to do it on Friday.
  • Discovered that rsync_hfs apparently does not work with netatalk2, in that it does not keep resource forks. Which is its entire purpose for being. psync, ditto, CpMac, etc, all work as expected. Rewrote wrapper scripts to use psync. Last two weeks of data have no resforks. Will be very entertaining when someone asks for a restore. Note to self: Test all software more thoroughly after upgrades instead of just assuming because it doesn't cause OS X to reboot itself doesn't mean it's more gooder.
  • It was so windy and cold this morning that the side of my neck which took the brunt of the wind is still red, seven hours later.
  • Haven't got to work on my graphing project at all, which is annoying but fair.
  • Need to set up OpenVPN on the company firewall.
  • Need to set up OpenVPN on PWF's firewall and set up tunnels to CCCP and the Hasty Pastry. Need to read up on routing protocols (or just leave it up to porkchop who seems way more interested in it than I do).
