Been a while....

Pushed out another Legacy update, and a couple packages into updates-testing. Rolling right along. Should be able to ship out the master mirror server soon, FC1 64 installed nicely on it.

Been reading up on Bacula, seems like some decent software. Put in a project request at work to start playing with it on larger hardware sets and possible do a package deal with Bacula on our big storage boxes. If nothing else, I want to use it internally to back our stuff up.

Playing a bit with dspam. Very cool spam filter. I set it up for my account on my mail server. After feeding it 20~ spams I had in my trash, it caught 99% of the spam I got for the rest of the day, with no false positive. I'm pretty impressed. Install is a bit freaky, perhaps I should package it up and toss it at fedora.us for future inclusion in Extras. Of course, then I'd have to figure out how to use it correctly with sendmail/postfix/procmail. Wheee! Currently I'm using it with Courier-mta and my mysql based virtual users.

Getting closer to my Athlon64 system. Picked out system board, cpu, ram, video card, 19" LCD, second (third?) harddrive, and a PVR card. I just need the check from the publisher for the work I've done on a couple books and it will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine. Muahahahaha!
