Not much new going on. NOLA is still scheduled for a Sept 10th release. The payroll might only be about beta quality on release, but everything else seems solid. The windows and unix installation software will be made available then as well. It's unfortunately configured very statically for our purposes, but hopefully someone can make it a little more universal. The windows install is Installshield based, asks about 4 questions and installs and configures NOLA, Apache, PHP, and MySQL. The unix install is a shell script that asks the install path and compiles and configures everything.

Time Warner finally fixed my circuit. I can't believe such a large organization has so few people with clue. Not only was my assigned static IP not being routed, but I had to console into the provided cisco router to find out what ip it was even supposed to be. Not a single person there could give it to me. Among my many helps calls with them was a "router tech", who told me that my subnet was 255.255.255.252, and my router address ended in .32 (which has to be a network address with that subnet), a different customer had .33 (yeah, thru my router?!), my static ip was .34 (it wasn't, but this was at least possible), and my broadcast was .35. Really, my router was .37 and my static was .38. I realyl haven't had many other bad experiences with them, I just hope they don't get the ameritech attitude of 'Because we're the phone company, that's why.'

Beth has been very sick all weekend. I think she is stressed from her work. She hasn't had a day off in something like 28 days, working 60 hour weeks.
