good day, bad day.
Fixed the last remaining Redmond Linux Beta 1 bug
and shoved it out the door. i announced it on freshmeat and
already the flame mail's comin' in... but still a good day.
went in to work and found my HD crashed, gone gone gone.
yes, it contained the only piece of RL work i haven't backed
up. for five days. i suppose that'll teach me, but it
still really sux.
family is begging me to come see them on vacation in a few
weeks. trip will be rather expensive and liza says if we
see my family we've got to see her family too. so more
expense. plus for the past three years almost all our
vacations have been family vacations: we fly together, we
sit, we chat, we get bored, we leave. when do we get
vacations to do what we want to do?
seriously considering not showing up this time.
so it's my turn to decide how to store netbios credentials
in userland. in windows when you surf to a \\server\share
your default credentials don't allow you to access, a gui
dialog pops up asking you for a username/password [and
perhaps domain]. how to do that in linux? email me if you have
ideas pls. it's gotta be user and program agnostic but live
in userland. welllll, i *guess* it could live in kernel
land, but i don't think i want it there.
kudos on the salon piece. my wife reminds me that
advogato means 'lawyer' in portuguese.
