From "[jbowman@yertle jbowman]$ rpm -qp --changelog ssh-2.4.0-1.i386.rpm"

* Mon Dec 04 2000 Anne Carasik <anne@ssh.com>

- Added the following, thanks to Joe Bowman <jbowman@kiva.net> :)
- Patched to solve a large number of specfile problems
- Added the ability to install alongside ssh1 rpms for ssh1 compatibility mode
- Changed package name to ssh2 to allow for installation alongside ssh1
- Removed explicit SUSE support.

It warms my heart to know that, while they went silent on me, the SSH folks at least didn't totally ignore me. :)
Now, it's just a matter of waiting for the source RPM for ssh-2.4.0 to be released so I can go and make sure my contributions are working correctly. And (so far) the SSH folks are keeping the license terms the same for 2.4.0, which means it continues to be usable (and includable) by distributions. I've been using openssh now for a little while, though, and I must admit it's hard to find much of a difference between the two in terms of functionality. Definitely something to spend some more time researching.

Hm. It's been a while since my last post. Vacation was a wonderful week and a half of complete and utter slack. Definitely needed, as I was starting to get a little burnt around the edges. Now I'm refreshed and ready to take on the world! Well, okay, maybe not the world. Maybe a nice pizza or two instead... Mmm...

The new computer toys are behaving nicely. After last month's spending spree on computer equipment, I believe I wound up with more than half of my workstation at home being replaced with shiny brand-new parts.

Had an amusing battle with Windows while I was installing my new toys. Apparently, Windows cannot recognize an IDE Orb drive when it's connected to the on-board HPT370 controller of the Abit KT7-RAID motherboard. What makes this wonderfully ironic is that the Linux drivers (which don't support the RAID functionality) *can* recognize and use (perfectly) the Orb drive when it's on that controller. How ironic.

Other than that, it's back to work building client machines and making sure things don't turn into some sort of apocalyptic nightmare in the machine room. *BZZZT!* *FWOOMP!* Oops, too late...
