So i noticed that I have been unreasonably quiet of late.
This is not a byproduct of not having anything to say, it is because I am horribly busy.

Work has been a downright pressure cooker. I had my Google appliance kick on me, had my applications server crash - had to deal with an open SSH vulnerability on two of my DB boxes, and had a project that should have had an 8 month lead dumped in my lap for a three week development window.

Yeah, busy.

I am trying to balance my 9-5 with a hopeful wave of upcoming side jobs with which I hope to finance my wedding.

So even when I am not working, I am working, to some extent or another.

I finally got my cable issues sorted out (I hope).

My second monitor finally gave up the ghost. Circut board looks like a carbon snake. So now I am working inefficently until I can get another box. Hopefully a xmas present for meself.

Richelle and I finally got our bed - it is nice, despite my misgivings about it pre-purchase.

I need to learn a whole lot more about setting up and securing enterprise relational databases than I currently do, in order to meet some upcoming projects, so I will be worming my way into that field even deeper than I already am.

I need to update my comics cache, I am horribly behind.

Carnivale has become a new obsession.

I need to collate some reasearch - badly. A lunchtime conversation last week launched this realization with a certain sense of hope and dread, all mixed with a twist.

Re: its an old hole, but they still haven't dealt with it properly
is there a white paper or a CPAN module or something you could link me to on that vulnerability?

did you determine what they took?

who besides the IT staff needs to use SSH?

http://www.cert.org/advisories/CA-2003-24.html is the cert advisory - we didn't have a breakin - it was pre-emptive, but if we had had a serious outside audit or situation it would have been bad news.
