Wow, 2001 is here already... I was talking with the girl I love about 2000. We decided 2000, was soo much fun... it's funny cause I said, man we had so much fun together this year, and she said , "Yeah but it was all such a blur cause we were fucked up all the time"... welp, we do like to party.

So here comes the new year... and hopefully lots of success for my new company, thus success for my life.

Jenn is going to Germany for 3 months in March... I hope she has an excellent time. That is really exciting for her

We've got lots to look forward to in the GNU/Linux world... for one IBM is pledging $1 billion to us... that is a lot of money. Look how far gnu/linux has come with so little money, imagine what it will do with some iron behind it.

Good luck to Eazel and HelixCode, I'm counting on you guys to have a really nice desktop in place by 2002.

Snow sucks, but not as much as Finals... Name Resolution sucks... but the way windows does name resolution may suck worse than finals... on the other hand... gnu/linux does name resolution wonderfully!!

I am in a serious fight with smb.conf today... this one may get ugly, but I'm gonna fight til the death

I am definately beating smb.conf.. I'm not sure if I totally won, that will come with testing but I think I have...

Guess I should make some sort of entry about our President Elect... Welp, I just hope he keeps to what he said in the debates, and makes a smaller federal government, stronger state governments, and retract some of the armed forces... It would be nice if we took that $101 billion dollars we spend on the "War on Drugs", and spend it on a greater social goal. I mean $101 billion dollars, and it all goes to busts for posession... I mean who really cares or is affected by someone who is busted on posession? There are lots of people out there with no homes and no food, not to mention a social security fund that is running out.. I mean $101 billion... jeez

Going to spend this week doing some inhouse Security Auditing. I've auditted these systems before, but hey lets do it again.

Pretty easy week in general, Economics Final on Friday

Can't wait to go to a rave on Friday, Maddame Buddafly is spinning Hard German Trance... something this American is excited to hear.

Went to a Rave this past weekend, it was really good... you know what made it so good... The .. MUSIC... the music was so damn good, Rave's should be about the music.

The most interesting thing about creating a gnu/linux VPN solution, is that our clients want to use thier Win Networks... so working out some of the Windows quirks like WINS, proves interesting work.

Has anyone heard of anything the Open Source Initiative has done lately? Is it time for them to pass on the Organization to a group of people who will be active, update the website, and help persuade companies to use an Open Source business model.

The Inactivities of the OSI, has made me really hate the term OPEN Source... so I'll stick with FREE Software...

Had an article published in LinuxMonth today... it's about the GPL and MPL. Check it out and tell me what you think. Also LinuxLock now has an rss page.

Went to school and rocked a test

Went to work and got a nice pay check

Check the web and see my article

Ran into an old friend

Today was a good day

Spent the last 3 months developing a reliable VPN solution (based on Caldera Linux and PoPToP), have a few in production working wonderfully. Tommorrow is the sales conference for the boxes... both exciting and tiring.

I'm working for BroadConnect now, but we are (currently) owned by DRJ Computing, the consulting company I used to work for. I got asked to help them out today.. just had to drop a keyboard off to one of their clients.. I was asked, could you do this favor and drop off this keyboard, I promise it has nothing to do with the Windows operating system ... :-)

Man I love what ghod is doing with LinuxLock... keep on the look out for LinuxLock Version 2, the site is so much nicer to look at.. thank ghod

Started to delve into the world of IPSEC... just lovely...

So tired... worked all day, but at least I work for myself :-) ... kinda fun, working when you know it's for yourself. Spent the whole day, making our systems RPM based... every file on the system can be traced back to an rpm ... wierd
