Right - long time no post... so here goes... last week was a bit of a nightmare, main server at work had a disk failure, backup server was about 2 to 4 weeks out of date (ooops), fortunately a fair chunk of the data was on a raid array in the main server when we got it back, but that was it. Spent a week rebuilding and putting measures in to place to make sure that there was a backup at all times that shouldn't be more than 2 hours out of date.

Also, been working on jewel again (well, not so much on jewel, but the new incantation, still not worthy of putting anywhere, still in *VERY* early stages of development while I learn ObjC while rewritting it), hoping to get something out by the end of the month at the latest.

And, also, going to actually finish packaging ircd-hybrid 6 very soon (hopefully by the end of this week). It's been a while since I played in the tree though, so thinking about making the source package make 2 packages, one geared for high volume networks, the other geared for standalone servers. Thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Otherwise, life is still (just about) ticking along, wish there was more to it, but hey, can't have everything I suppose, you win some, you lose some, I'm just having a nice long losing streak.

Anything else? hrm, don't think so, could do with a change of scenery, maybe its time to take a real holiday. Normally end up back at my dads, or wasting it in a pub, probably wouldn't be a bad plan to just get away for a bit.
