I am creating more and more imaginative ways to get my free-software works done. I wish there were more hours on my days, 24 aren't enough.

One of the DDS tape units went out of order, tomorrow night I will have to watch the hardware maintenance guy do his work on the server. There will be like 2 or three hours (including the wait until everybody stop doing their jobs on the network) for me to write things. I intend to write some nice words about two mostly unsung heros of unix: cron and man.

BTW, the server that hosts the DDS unit is an ancient PA-RISC HP server. I hope I'll have the chance to install linux on it someday, somehow.

Today I wrote a review (in portuguese) of 'Building Linux and OpenBSD Firewalls' - great book!

I'm running out of cash and I badly need a new workstation, so maybe I'll have to do something interesting (and not cheap) very fast.
