Productive, no reviews

One of these days, I'm going to get book reviews written again.

Today was one of those days where I didn't really get started until late in the day, but then got on a nice productivity streak that salvaged the whole day. I've now written the needed statements of work for the Kerberos project, gotten farther on building networking systems, built and configured our new load-balance and pobox DNS server and made it ready for testing, and started on the new weblogin deployment with SPNEGO support.

In a day with volleyball and meetings, that's not at all bad.

However, I just finished all that about 25 minutes ago and spent the last 25 minutes dealing with the fact that the current xdm upgrade in unstable crashes xdm, and thereby crashed my entire session while I was in the middle of doing work. And now it's time to go walk and read.

Tomorrow, I go pick up new framed artwork, possibly try to find a new fan for my video card if I'm feeling up to it, maybe eat out for lunch, and then work on updating documentation to our new web page templates and getting the WebAuth 3.4.0 release out. And maybe writing a review.

Woo, volleyball. I didn't know you played. Do you play on campus? What level?

Yeah, we play most every Tuesday and Thursday at noon in Roble field if it's dry and in the sand court in GovCo if it's not. It's the long-standing ITS/AS/ITSS/whatever game that goes back some 15 years or something, but a bunch of us started playing regularly about two or three years ago.

It's a friendly pick-up game with a pretty wide variety of skill levels, but we've gotten a lot better in the past year or so, to the degree that we at least play something that looks vaguely like real volleyball. There's about a 70/30 mix of overhand and underhand serves, we actually spike and block at this point, and some people who also play in leagues seem to find us not too horrible to play with.
