*yawn* Back at work after a great weekend with friends. Watched a pile of kung-fu DVDs, then saw Romeo Must Die in the theater. Go see it. Yes. Do.

Did a bit of rock-climbing on Saturday. That combined with the six-hour drive home has my legs hating me. Sleeping on the couch wasn't good for my back either.

Anyway. Good stuff -- finally got a copy of New Riders' Python Essential Reference, and the Cure's new album as well. Bad stuff -- while I was gone, and the NT admin and the Boss were in St. Louis for a 3Com thing, our Alteon Layer-4 switch gave out and started dropping HTTP connections randomly. Such a PITA trying to troubleshoot hardware issues over cellphone and pager. But once we fixed it and sent out an explanatory email, we got a flood of replies from users telling us how great our service is and how much they appreciate our honesty and candor when we have a problem. Wonders never cease.

Back to writing billing software <-> server interfaces today. Perhaps I'll upgrade to RedHat 6.2 at some point.
