Went off on the Team Leader yesterday. I feel sorry for him, really. Asking me stupid questions. Poor guy.

Email he rec'd:

I've had a problem using ssh to connect from my box (blade100) to v120. Eric is to resolve this problem; and it's been several weeks. Iris is waiting for me to test the DB that she moved over there. Would you please see that this issue resolved ASAP? Thanks!

Oh, I fixed that problem alright. THREE WEEKS AGO! I deleted his third-party licensed ssh client and used Tony's brilliant SunOS 5.8 tarball to install all the packages necessary for a Solaris 8 box to run secure shell. Then I kindly (oh, so kindly and gently) explained to him how to use IP's in place of hostnames to do exactly what he wanted to do, and he was a happy, secure-shell'ing fool when I left him. Now this. And then the questions about his email from a guy who doesn't know what 'ssh' stands for. Grrrr. I exploded and walked away to work on LDAP. Today, this came in the mail from someone else:

v120 now has a new IP address. When it was given the new IP address three weeks ago, it was not added to the DNS tables or the NIS+ tables. To make matters worse, (1st email guy) and I had resolv.conf files on our Sun boxes that pointed to (old dns server), which is no longer updated but is still functioning as a DNS server and still thinks v120 is at the old address.

Ya think that might be the problem??? Asses.

He asks me yesterday, "So how's L.D.A.P. going?"

"Commonly pronounced, 'LDAP,' it's going fine thank you."

So, I've been using Photoshop Elements in place of Photoshop CS these days for several reasons. Basically, if you know CS, Elemets will just piss you off, as all the same tools are in different locations and some of the features of CS are just non-existant. By far the most wonderful thing about Elements is that it retains batch processing. I tell it, "Take these 400 images in this directory and all it's subdirectories, resize to 50% of their orginal size, make it a gif, and overwrite the original file." Nice.

Sun ONE is gay.
