No mail server

This is the first time in ..... 6, 7, years? Where I haven't had my mail server working for more than ~ 10 minutes.

It's kinda odd.

If you need to urgently contact me, I remember I have my UW CS account that I normally use only to read the blather from the UW CS mailing lists.

After classes I have to go down there again and fix that machine. I was having all sorts of problems last night bringing IP aliases up and down on two different machines. Some ARP thing. But I remembered last night as I fell asleep that I forgot to do my fix-everything trick: pinging the broadcast address. That always seems to teach switches what's up. So at least there's hope for fixing this when I go down there.

I really want to skip my 80 minute environmental geography class today, but it's the first week. :-)

Long time no post

Let's see... what happened today?

German was fun.
Environmental Health was not.
But I had a rad idea.

Went straight from UW to downtown, via bus.
Walked from tunnel to Space Needle (Internap).

Fixed many server things for a long time.
(finally rebuilt my personal server to Debian)
Note: ifdown -a takes down lo also
Walked most of the way home.
Took a bus.
Walked some more.
Took a bus.

Played with candles and fire and wax.

Fixed CVS.
Note: chmod +s dir => new files inherit permissions

Healthy eating for the day:
  • Bradadilla -- 2 tortilla with refried beans and 2 slices of cheese in the middle, microwaved for 100 seconds.
  • Obstsalat der Bradwelt-- double-quarter-thick banana slices and peanut butter
My geek tasks complete, Now I'm looking for adventure. Have you any for me?

PEE ESS: if you sent me any mail in the last 2 days I haven't replied to, send it again .... it's probably lost or something.
