Body: Arrived very late after Go at the Bean Cycle. Got the video cam demo working with the NetEngine and NFS too. Played a few seconds of Unreal Tournament but the network connection on Brian's machine failed to stay up.

Body: Ate pizza. Fixed a problem with a Soekris that we had out in the field. The Soekris doesn't have a very good sense of time, and if you leave it unplugged long enough it will think it's 1980 again. I changed the boot process so that it makes sure to run ntpdate before starting up the VPN. The problem was that the VPN was not wanting to start up if the clock time was before the certificate issue time. Thanks to ant, I was able to use his serial cable of doom to get logged into it, I had loaned my cable out. Fixed a client machine on which they had removed the SSH package. Luckily, they had realized before they logged out and I was able to talk them through re-installing and restarting it. Ate many ginger snaps. Didn't realy do that much. Had a very good time though.

Body: Spoke to a client on the cell phone. Ate pizza and drank Mountain Dew. Worked on some scripts to spool faxes received on one machine off to another machine where they will be printed and later archived. Played a little bit of tux racer.
