Wow...I haven't posted in like, 3 days.

We had "debauchery" again on Saturday...which was a great deal of fun (except for the minor tiff at the end, but we'll just ignore that). I ended up staying at kion's house till Sunday night, somehow...I'm still not clear on where all that time went, but whatever.

I've been strangely apathetic lately...chores (including dishes) aren't getting done, and I'm basically not caring about school anymore. Instead, I'm sitting around messing with computer stuff. (Although, 205 and computer stuff do overlap somewhat.) I spent about 3 hours setting up an IRC server so my 205 group would have a non-IM way to communicate (since nobody can agree on an IM service). Of course, it's 99% likely that nobody's going to use that...but what the hell.

The point is, all this IRC stuff/UI reconfiguring I've been doing (my E looks very different now) means no real work is getting done (and the IRC server is questionable at best). I'm hoping now, though, that things on deneb at least are stabilized enough so I won't have to touch them for a while.

Speaking of deneb, I'm thinking that perhaps I should be using spica as my main desktop machine...and deneb should be kept around mainly for serving stuff (i.e. no X, except in cases of DVDs or Unreal). I'll have to think about it...I think it would probably be a really good idea. (I know...I can hear everyone rolling their eyes and going "duhhhhh"...)

I also really need to get IPsec going on my wireless network (and maybe also have it tunnel back to deneb from on campus...now THAT would be cool). In order to do that, though, I have to figure out how to setup the server side of the connection, and talk to kion about things like VPN, and getting it working with iptables (so that *only* IPsec connections can talk to anything).

Whee, this sounds like so much fun...I'm not getting any schoolwork done for a week!

Oh well. Off to bed with me.

    Well, I'm off to Dreamwidth. I hope to see you all there! Nice knowing you, LJ. It's been grand. — Des

  • A fresh start?

    So I'm thinking of moving away from LJ. Every time I glance at my ad blocker, there are an uncomfortably-large number of advertising and tracking…

  • 2012: Ramp It Up

    It’s that time of the year again -- another year has passed, and as usual, I don’t finish reflecting on it until the first 3 months of the following…
