Body: Attempted to install psycopg (needed to pick up the new rpm, to get the header files). I would have finished it with net :) Peer support for .bashrc files, changing the new user account skeleton, and recommended Jon Lasser's _Think UNIX_.

Body: I set up a couple of mailing lists for NCLUG -- nclug-cvs and nclug-announce. I also worked on a program to insert syslog entries into a SQL database. Unlike most syslog-to-SQL systems which have a schema consisting of "date", "host", and "message"... This one allows for the parsing of the actual message text into application-specific sets of data, so you can ask questions like "What messages relate to a system from this class C address" and "What services have we seen a login via account Y for?" Got the basic schema working, but found I need to make some changes. Got a simple client going that inserts base messages into the database. Did a test insert of 12,000 messages into the database.
