Welcome to February - seems like time is flying by! It is raining today, but 36f so no problems other than normally associated with wet roads.

I just started reading the fourth Harry Potter book - which is good but slightly disorienting after reading the fan fiction by Cassandra Claire - she builds on the four books and takes them farther - so some of the things in her fiction are based on events that I am reading now. She does an excellent job of capturing the feel of the books, and the stories she tells are logical extensions of them. Check them out!

I'm considering putting most of the items in my parts closet up for sale on Ebay, unless someone out there wishes to make me an offer for part or all of it?

The last few days have been spent working on the backup issues at work, enhancing certain security issues, preventive maintenance on the firewalls and such, documenting configurations, etc. At home we have been relaxing and reading or watching DVDs - we watched Star Wars Episode 2 last night, for instance. Good movie, I understood more of the plot and story this time around. Still kinda disjointed and non-intuitive, IMHO. (IMHO = In My Humble Opinion)
