New System

The bugs appear to have been sorted out, and this system is about to go live.  I'm going to have to do something about the design...

And the admin tool needs more exploration.  But this is definitely a functional journal.  I wonder if it'll work with iJournal.  Hmmm.

PPPoE in Philadelphia

(originally posted at

I got into Philadelphia late last night. I'm only here for the weekend, visiting my friend Kristen.

The first thing I did when I got there - even before changing out of my wet clothes - was to get my laptop hooked up on their building network. Verizon brings a T3 into the building and there are probably fiber runs to a switch room on each floor. They use PPPoE to connect.

Kristen's roommates were confused how I'd get PPPoE working on the Powerbook (running OSX 10.2) without being able to install Verizon's Windows-only PPPoE software connection client.

Oh man, it was SO easy. Created a PPPoE location, gave it the username, password, told it what the service name was. And bang, I was connected.

Their jaws dropped.

"We can't do that in Windows without their utility!"

"Funny, that."

i'm just back from rochester. boss is in dallas for a big meeting. roommate's been laid off - i need to find a new place to live soon. met some interesting new people lately. project is coming along nicely. life continues to be strange and interesting.

just downloaded iJournal. enjoying it. perhaps it'll inspire me to update this more often.

the future of life, be e.o. wilson is a bit depressing. i expected something other than a 200-page guilt trip.
