Well, it's been nearly a week since I last posted here. Just been too busy or tired to remember to stop by. The party was great on Friday night, the type you come home on Saturday sometime and then go to sleep!

Have the network installation module finished. This is a good thing.

After having the basic medical paid for me by the company I worked for for the past year or two, I've recently needed to go and get it set up on my own. They bill you via mail, and have no option for direct withdrawl this year. They tell me maybe next year.

Why did I need to go set that up again? I think I'm getting a very bad cold, in that I've had difficulty hearing for the past two days, and was apparently wandering around like a zombie, although I don't remember droning on about needing brains. Maybe I just needed a parent to wait for me.

While wandering like a zombie, I managed to find three dead NIC cards around the network, and remove some 10Mbit hubs. With all of that plugged into the network, it seems to affect everyone and drop connections that should be 9MB/s down to 300KB/s. Everything seems much happier in the network, now.

I just realized that the game of nethack I started on the full moon that I left in a detached screen died in a power outage over the weekend! fsck!

I think I'll go sleep now so I can go visit the doctor somewhat early....
