Gods I am tired. I was up until 2am last night attempting to bash my newly installed server into some sort of familiar shape. I've now got it routing, emailing, calendaring and web proxying - but a lot of these are just thrown together, so I'm going to have to go round and tighten all the nuts and bolts, and figure out how these newer and different programs are configured.

I still need to set up public keys, DNS, DHCP, WOL, squid proxying, VMWare, BitTorrent, backups (both from and to).

In other news I now have 31 DLT IV tapes and a cleaning tape, and some replacement brake discs for my bike.. wonder what I'll be doing tonight?


Here's what I've done:
  • On the server: DNS, DHCP, WOL, Samba, Fixed the annoying bug with the calendar dropping out, but not yet got SSL working yet. I still need to get backups (both in and out), squid, SSL, public keys and snapshots working, as well as redoing all the SSL certificates for all services.
  • On the bike: Attempted to replace front discs with ev1ldonut's help. Discover the discs, although almost identical to the ones I have on, are not identical. Swear for a bit. Decide to wire brush and sand the existing discs as appropriate, and manage to do that. The bike actually started fine (after being left for a month or so) and is much improved - not perfect, but a lot better.
And now, I think it's time for a (relatively) early night. I will have to relist the discs; perhaps I will get round to getting rid of all the other bike bits I no longer need.
