Another day, another $0.70(CDN) after taxes.
Why is it that when a new printer gets plugged into the network everybody feels obligated to print a test page? One is more than enough, everything else is paper airplanes.
On the subject of printing, there has to be a better way. I will admit to being a big fan of "circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one is to be used as evidence against us.." (with apologies to Arlo Guthrie ;) but it's a major pain cleaning off the monitor...which leaves only the tree-ware.
One of the team here found a new (new to us, apparently it's been around for a while) network tool, called dig. Wanted to know more about it so we checked for a man page in Solaris...no such beastie (although that's what he was running it on). Checked HP-UX and same response. Just because I'm like that, I checked FreeBSD and I found it ;) Mark up one point for the open source docs! ;)
Zero accomplished yesterday. Staring at a monitor with a sinus headache just doesn't do it in my little world. Hopefully I'll get a bunch done tonight after a visit with my 'SQL Guru' at his preferred place for Irish Pints. I'm always amazed at the depth of this man's knowledge about SQL and programming language semantics in general. I keep trying to get him involved in open source (even though he's not a hacker) but he feels that standards are enough of a contribution.
