Heavy duty sysadmin weekend. Moved my production web server over to Apache 2. All went well except for PHP4, which needed a little patching and to be compiled with the bundled pcre library, to avoid segfaults caused by some bug or other. I forgot what a bear it was to compile properly.

Also moved my mail server from exim3 to exim4. The main purpose of this was to get SMTP-time SpamAssassin going. Everything seems to be going well there. The Debian "conf.d" style of exim configuration makes a lot of sense once you get over the fear of its newness.

I've been using RT to track article lifetimes for XML.com. Overall I'm very happy. The big shame is that to get custom reports you really need to go right into coding, so I've got to set some time aside to investigate that.

In other news, I'm getting a little behind on my Debian packaging work, so I'll have to put some time aside for that this week.
