These are a few of my favourite things

Thursday, 26 January 2006


Yesterday was a hectic day involving lots of beer.

Last night I:

  • Went out for a meal with some visiting Americans. (2 pints of beer)
  • Went out to the Guildford Arms to meet some visiting Dutch people (2 pints of guiness) [Signed and uploaded all three GPG keys this morning]
  • Went out to The Auld Hoose to meet friends. (1 bottle Newcastle Brown Ale)

Waking up this morning was a long and gradual process.

Now I have to fight to install SCO upon a new HP server. The machine has no floppy drive, and requires additional drivers to be installed to access the disks. Fun stuff.


Some Debian work:

  • Orphaned “ud” since it is in a bad shape and I just can’t bring myself to care.
  • (Now every package I “own” is in a great state and used by me semi-daily.)
  • Made a new sarge backport of xen-tools.
  • Have a pending upload of Komi to fix a FTBFS issue.
  • Need to make the CSS changes to the Debian Admin site to improve the site header.

Tomorrow I need to setup a new site to advert the commercial setup/support I’ve been doing for the past few months. First of all I need to actually clarify what I’ll offer, then work out how to charge, etc.

In the past I’ve mostly done single-server setups for one-off fees, and maintainence which just included applying security updates plus monitoring disk-space + services.

Not sure that there is a huge market for it, but it is something I’d like to do more of, even if there is no money involved.
