I am the co-ordinator of the Bay Area Linux Chix group. I'm one of those slackers who admins free software, but doesn't write much.

So, the Galaga game is still broken at work. Brian said that he was getting Ops a present... and I sure as hell hope it's either a poof chair or a Galaga repair person with a bow on his head.

I realized, as I spent about 6 hours debugging backups for $BIG_NAME_OPEN_SOURCE_PROJECT the other day, that I do a hell of a lot more work for the Free Software community at my current job than I ever did at Linuxcare or Quicknet or on my own even.

I need to learn more Solaris and FreeBSD and how to write portable shell scripts. GAR. I think I get to learn BGP soon too. Wooooo. Last week I learned more about administering CVS repositories than I ever wanted to know.

The Free Dmitry train parked in my life for a few days last weekend, and I realized that I'm just not a protest sort of person anymore, not like I was ten years ago. I have indirectly lent a mobo, cpu, and RAM to the cause, and I hope that that will be sufficient. I'm certainly glad that there are others out there like Crackmonkey, Seth Schoen, Mr.Bad, et al, who have the energy and enthusiasm to lead the activities.

i think that Crackmonkey got it right when he described $EXFIRM as 'train wreck. slow motion.' long live free software.


some new people came to the linuxchix meeting tonight. they are a few of the people who redid our web site as part of their web class. they will be doing version 2 of the site over the next couple of weeks, and when they are finished, we will teach them how to use ssh on Linux to move files around between servers. right now they only use ftp to upload files, and the only OSs they are taught at their school are MacOS and Windows. as a result of doing the baylinuxchix web site for their class, they have become intereted in learning Linux. it's pretty exciting to expose these women to some free software that they otherwise might not run into.


mmmm. still good. go figure. i can't even really get too mad at my exabeast, even though one of it's drives keeps failing. the new drive i get tomorrow will be the 3rd replacement. i usually like hardware, but sometimes it can suck. josh did some work that will allow me to do more monitoring stuff in the near future. this makes me happy.


the galaga machine is still broken despite the fact that it is a P1 for my cowerker. i would normally be very upset about this, but i have been distracted by illuminati instead.

thanks nutella. now i have to go home and listen to tom waits RIGHT AWAY.

the exabyte ate tape #72. galaga is still dead at werk. i am having to learn solaris.


happy birthday to mbp and crackmonkey.

job is good. it will be even better when the galaga game is fixed. i'm learning all kinds of things that i've avoided for awhile... database stuff and hardware stuff. it's not so bad.

josh is doing very well on his installation stuff for werk. yay josh!
