Strange things happen...

I tried to leave our most public projects because I disliked the way of disinformation within the company. Now I became teamleader. Especially nice because I now see that communication has been improved.

Anyway - it was a good start in the new year. Our NFS- System is fine now as long as no one (also not the vendor) touches it.

Today I discovered that IceCast is a nice way to hear the mp3s from home in my office - it works quite fine if you have a good downlink :-) Thanks to debian/NetBSD, it worked quite fast so I was easy starting all the stuff.

This morning, we want to make the final clustertests for a new projekt. First we had to find out why Solaris doesn't want to work with Cisco Switches - since Solaris 8 they have changed the behaviour which is quite surprisingly. Well - until midday we finished reconfiguration of everything....

Now we try to test the cluster. I think it is a lot of fun to crash a machine by purpose - just to do it makes enough fun because you expect it to come back. If it doesn't, blame your consultant who installed the whole stuff :-)
