Haven't posted for a while. I've been busy - the entries stopped just before my son was born... babies are a lot of work!
Anyway, fun new (to me) Debian utilities are apt-proxy and apt-spy. Apt-proxy is working happily on my home-office mini-network now and I'm playing with apt-spy.
Was invited to submit a followup proposal for my education project, writing it up now.
Also trying out a advogato ruby post script -- fun.
