and the week goes on

I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. Almost a whole week has gone by since my last post, and somehow I’m just too busy to do anything. Work isn’t even hard – it’s just trying to co-ordinate lease approvals by Dell with purchase approvals by my boss is driving me crazy. Once this initial order goes in, I swear my life is going to be much better. The challenge for me is spending other people’s money, the actual server config is when I start to have fun.

I got sick of waiting for other upgrades to take place and just grabbed some old crappy Pentium 166 that was behind me and set it up as our new firewall. That shitty Linksys Router will crash no more! The machine is slow, but performs it’s duties admirably. And of course, it’s sitting on my desk with the monitor perched on top of opened tower, and the hard drive balanced precariously on its side next to the machine. It’s intimidating to everybody else who has no clue what I’m doing. I have to say that I’m really enjoying having an open Linux box sitting next to me :smile:. Now if I can just convince them to order my dream administrator monitors I’ll be all set :grin:.
