Body: Writing some code to talk to the RS-232 interfaced multimeter. Wrote some Python code that reads samples periodically and writes them to syslog. As soon as the inductive current probe arrives, I'll be ready to build some rrdtool graphs of power usage in our house. Helped Roger get Atheros drivers working for his wireless card, it locked up the card when I ifconfiged the interface though. Got the wireless card I have with Prism54 chipset working on his box though. He had copied over the MadWiFi source via a FAT file-system, so the files were all renamed lower-case, which caused "make install" to fail since there was now an "install" file that was up to date. Listened to some morcheeba that dangerjim sent over to me. Pretty cool. Creating a 700GB backup partition on the backup server at home.
