"The random musings of a bemused Sysop"

OK, so I should have started this a long time ago as it's been a very interesting last 12 months.

  • Friday 31st January
    Had 9 hours sleep, that probably gets me into about the middle of January, but its not bad having a crisp start to a new day.
    Installed new CD Juke box while old one gets repaired.
    Replaced 4-way switch box with one that has mouse support - wrong cables were supplied with it :-(

    Very busy day!
    2 trips to Elizabeth for client, no sleep since Tuesday night.
    Further negotiations regarding radio link.

    Checked for updates, tuned the proxy and news servers a little.
    Lots of Linux reading.
  • Monday 27th January
    Run tests on Linux news server, working OK so far.
    Long chat on why the sysop is an &r$[H*|[ with a caller.
    Installed a new fan in main Ace PC - old one was getting noisy.
    Re-Index all data files - a long job.
    Run tests on placing the DMA files on the Novell server.
    All this before 07:30am. Gonna be one of _those_ days. Nah, be an optimist :-)

    Started getting creative with the Ace Home Page.
    Had a fracas with a twonk user - suspended for 7 days.
