Hmm. Learned about Cisco switch management a little yesterday. I'll see how much I remember when it comes time to change the configuration... Worked on solving cable routing problems without working myself into a hole. Built the wooden ladder rack and it ended up being much more flexible than the real thing, as I realized that I could use it for much more cable management than just running some wires overhead. I'm quite pleased. And it doesn't look like falling apart any time soon.
Today arrived at work to find that someone had cut a power cable (idiots with backhoes!) and we were subsisting on emergency power. That keeps the servers running, fortunately, but meant I wasted some time bringing up "non-essential" machines after power was restored.
Spent some time catching up on lad-comments email. I kind of lost track of it while I was in .nl and forgot to catch up with it when I got back. Oops. The errata is now up to date. Now I start on patches for procps that have accumulated over the past few months. Time for a new release.
