Yeah, it's been awhile. I dunno, for awhile there I didn't really feel like coming back here. I was holding my idealism a little too high, as evidenced by my bit on the certs. I've been doing a lot of thinking on a lot of things lately, and really, the certs don't matter that much. I know who is a master and who isn't. Hell, I even have totally different ideas than other people who certify people honestly here, just because I have different views than they do. I know who to come to. Let the old boys' network live on; I just won't be a part of it. That doesn't make the site less useful to me (unless everyone goes and revokes my certs today) :-)

What have I been working on lately? Not much of anything. I've actually been busy playing with Oracle's new stuff at work, and haven't really felt like coding much. libtool really confuses the hell out of me on OpenBSD (and it's currently causing some warnings in my nessus port). It seems there is a rather large divide between BSD developers and those working on libtool; neither seems to understand each other real well, and lots of words are flying.

Well, that's it for now. Contribute to my new article. :-)
