End of the week. I need to sleep, really.

Two days ago, a funny thing happened at work. We've been waiting for our provider to allow us to do SNMP queries for a few months, now, and some people (decisions-maker especially) were wondering if our pipe was big enough; But without statistics, it was hard to tell. Soooo... There was this guy i met 2 or 3 times "in real life" and who was often on IRC.I knew that he was working (almost) for our provider. So here i am, asking him if he can help me getting those stats. And YES ! He could ! 15 minutes later my MRTG was configured and now, we're all happy.

Yesterday, meeting with almost all the people of the company, to discuss about our "future". *cough*. If you want to recruit a Sysadmin, in Rennes, i'm your man.

sh has announced his (Debian) ITP for a few softwares, including the Bobot++ from eb. But since eb isn't working on it anymore, I'm preparing myself mentally to take over his work. I already have a CVS which contains a version with add-ons. Hum ... sourceforge is waiting for me, i can feel it ! :-)

4 brand new G4 have been received at work today. They're sweet. The mouse is now usable for normally constitued human beings. But (localized) MacOS sux. Deeply.

This week-end, Recovery.

We all have to start someday, so this is my first entry in my brand new diary here. I have written only a few words, and i already feel that my written english is _really_ rusty. Well, in fact, my oral english might be worse *g*.

It's 3am, here, and i left work 2 hours ago. Had to be there, "just in case", while people where moving some of our core routers 300 km from here. Finally, 3 got burnt (talking about routers, not people). Or at least, they lost their configuration. *wee*, happyness and everything. I just had to let my colleague do the work. Hey, i'm a Sysadmin, not a Netadmin !

Nothing really interesting today, apart from that. Played with MRTG and won. Bought feet for my guitar, and cables to link the effect switch and the Marshall, while still having enough cables to use the Wahwah and the guitar. Bought a Nightwish CD (i won't play it a lot) and a LA Guns live CD (it rocks ! I guess i'm old-fashioned), and « L'éveil d'Endymion » (from Dan Simmons, but i don't know the original title).

Enough for today !
