Hello, world

[ #2375 ]
If everybody else is doing it, why shouldn't I?

For Christmas, I got a kidney stone. Eeeeeeew, it really hurt, like, the pain was so bad that I was vomiting spontaneously. Not fun.

But then I got better and back to work, with an inbox a mile look. Various things at work were broken and I had to get them up to speed. In the past 10 days I have

  • Upgraded Apache from 1.3.9 to 1.3.22.
  • Upgraded from 2.56 to 2.79.
  • Wrote a script that extracts information from our tracking database to the accounting system.
  • Updated various documents in our bofh tech library.
  • Wrote a web script to allow people to cook^Wmodify financial details in the billings database.
  • Set up a couple of printers on the network.
  • Figured out why the primary DNS server was refusing ssh connections.
  • Got the Frankfurt office up and running (they had run out of disk space).
  • Posted a snippet to Perl Monks, only to have Merlyn point out that I had successfully reinvented CGI->Dump. Man I hate when that happens.
