Better day today (: Gave my presentation to the sales people. They were looking for something far less indepth than I originally thought so I was able to 'off-the-cuff' it. Need to write up a presentation for when I go to a customer's location in a couple weeks. That should be fun-ish.

More testing of kernel 2.6 and greater than 2TB block devices. I've got a 12 drive SATA raid box that exports the raid array as a block device over Fibre. Getting some weird benchmark numbers, much faster writes than reads, and I'm not sure if it's the device, fibre in general, or kernel 2.6. Need more investigation.

Got told this morning that I had to have a complete new network segment put together with its own kickstart server that is also a firewall/nat box for special installs for a company that will OEM our hardware up by, oh tomorrow morning. Nothing like a short deadline, joy. So worked on that most the day, and will continue working on that tomorrow. Repeat after me, "I love my job. I love my job." (:
