Had to get someone to reset a radar system on Tuedsay
because I thought it had crashed.. Turned out that some
interference is causing it to detect about 8 times as many
meteors as normal, so it was too busy trying to work out
things about them to actually answer the phone.. Thankfully
the people running it installed a decent connection on the
next day so we can actually talk to it at a reasonable
Pottering around in the system shows it's rather busy.
There is a staging area for each second day of the month..
The most recent one has about 48000 files in it, and
rising... Works fine, but ls takes a heck of a long
time to run 8-)
Hah! I managed to fix my glasses.. Damn things, they cost
$200 a pair and they fall apart after 6 months.. Still,
loops of copper wire and some Araldite epoxy resin
work wonders. I hope epoxy fumes aren't bad for the eyes..
I've hacked up GPhoto to
grok USB Kodak cameras under FreeBSD.. Yechy.. Why does
Linux coallesce read/write endpoints into a single ugen
node? What happens when you have more than one pair of
read/write nodes? And what about having 2 read nodes and a
write node or whatever? Bah!
