The following is a picture of my VNC session at work into my wee mac at the ADC with the desktop wallpaper set to a screen shot of work's computer desktop manager. I'm so sneaky!

The gallery2 troubleshooting forum has 72 billion entries, and no search function.

LDAP on Solaris 8 is even more gay than LDAP on Solairs 9 or 10.

My wife is gorgeous. I miss her.

Troubleshooting an entire network migration remotely is retarded. I want to scream. I am the sole Solaris administrator for the D.C. office as well. Grrrrr. Oooh! Best part? I sent them written instructions on exactly the steps they needed for migration, but they thought it might be wrong, so they changed some stuff. Better yet, despite my specific instructions to ONLY migrate one box at a time, they managed to render unbootable both the NIS master, and the NIS slave! They called me when they couldn't get their boxes to come up. Nice, huh?

So I'm thinking of implementing LDAP on my servers at home. Why? To learn. Of course I'm considering using openldap, not this Sun ONE iPlanet hack. You see, you've got some kid running linux in his mother's basement. Will that get him a job? Maybe. But will this kid be able to set up a multi-terabyte filesystem on an Enterprise distro of linux? Who knows. But take a home Solaris user who's set up iPlanet LDAP and openldap and now you've got some real world experience. Enterprise LDAP is just larger. My thoughts for the day anyway.

Oh, and the guy in DC? I opened up his netmask, deleted /etc/defaultdomain and got him back up. Now we're just running ypinit -m ;)

judging from the timestamp of my earlier comment, I don't think I need to provide you an answer. Suffice it to say that "she" won't be comming.

Fair enough. Allow me then to change the tense:

Which one was that, exactly?

Please don't make me beat you with a stick. In August 2005 I was assuming it was someone like LIE or Blurbsy. You & I didn't even KNOW melancthe back then.

Goddamnit d00d! Are you that fucking senile? Can you read? Do you have comprehension? Do you even know what a timestamp is?

Mine is not to wonder why, but to do and die.
