It’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything, so here goes another round. For the moment, I’ve put the PHP/MySQL thing on the back burner. Right now, I’m looking at more global projects. The first of these is getting the backup working and designing sound backup policies. I’ve done enough reading and think I’ll be able to do a simple cpio backup tomorow. That’s a good start. The other issues is the organization of the samba shares. I’ve inherited a baroque system with lots of shares, none of them with any clear purpose. I want to simplify these by reducing their numbers, naming them appropriately, and restricting them to specific content (i.e. more policy work). I created a test share on Friday. Tomorow I’ll try mounting it before the other workers show up.
But I’m trying to focus my life, even outside of geekdom, on things broader and more important. First, Gina and I both need to live healthier lives, and that’s going to take a daily commitment. Second, I need to keep working on my computer skills (sysadmining, web design, and web programming). Third, I need to finish some unfinished business, especially my M.A.
