Well, day is over and I *need* to go to bed *now* :) Last night I stayed up way too long to answer that spanish mail from someone from columbia. I did it in spanish to see if I can manage to dig out some of the stuff I learned two years back by self-educating me, and I liked that a lot. If I would only remember as much about my exams when I have to write them, I'm saved :))

Done with re-reading the book for the exams, from tomorrow on only calculating...it is so damn boring this stuff...

Got my 4.3 BSD ISO burnt on CD. Started the installation, everything worked - except installing XFree 4.0.3 right away from the CD because it expects me to OK a security info on vt2 which can't be answered with any key ont he keyboard...I'll give it another try tomorrow or the other days this week, I'm really interested to get this thing up with a firewall, routing and stuff like the book that I keep since my FreeBSD 2.2.5 days and never made much use of since I only had a slow modem. Now is the time to faciliate the ports collection and the packages :))

Hmm...I should really buy a hub now with all these machines and only one monitor, crawling under the desk with my patch cable going from one machine to the other isn't that much fun about networking that it could be...
