wow...haven't been here in quite some time. it's been a maelstrom of activity in my life. i've blown through two jobs in less than 6 months, built up 2 servers at home, housed a G4 that came and went, received a big 19"x8' all black rack for free, and in general been amazingly busy.

i'm back with a meaningful webpage and time on my hand, so i'll link forward and back.

see my goings on by visiting NamShub, my homepage.

geeky week.

rebuilding qmail (again) to take into account the wonderful "issues" left there by DJB. qmail is great as a delivery-to-remote agent, but it absolutely sux rox as an inbound email handler. sendmail still seems to win that one hands down.

twiddling with an internal apache module...fun, fun, fun. at least, apache "does the right thing" from a programmer's perspective.

working on getting my DSL line and servers all set up so that i can start posting some of my "open source"/freeware to the world (without getting my server ripped to pieces by the script kiddies [bless their little fingers :-) ] ).

then i have to work with the silly provider to get my reverse DNS settled out...more fun.

i'd rather be writing code and designing systems.
