Decided that this coming Monday, I will go to the gym around
the block from work, show my ID badge (for the discount),
and sign up. I sit at my desk seven or eight hours a day and
a year of this is starting to show. I figure I can exercise
for thirty minutes at lunch each day without disrupting my
schedule and I might improve my health and probably improve
my disposition. At least I'll break from the office for a
little while. I'm also sleeping better since changing my
schedule, so I guess that worked.
Just for the hell of it, I threw a 3Com 3C509B- only one PCI slot and it has an eepro in it- I had lying around into the slimline P90 running OpenBSD I use as a firewall and segregated the wireless rig. Reconfigured the access point to use the BSD box as the gateway, tweaked TinyDNS and created a new instance of DNScache to serve the new network, and played with the rulesets. My wife didn't notice the difference, which is proof enough. One of these days I'm going to have to replace this AST Bravo, with its Pentium Overdrive, 32MB of EDO, and a 1GB drive scavenged from another machine, with something cheap, faster, and small. I've had this little desktop powered on since at least November 1999 (oldest file in the system). I'm open to suggestions. I might snag a sbus nic and impress my headless SS5 into the role.
