Caryn and I brought home a pizza after our shopping expidition. Had to get cat food and went for starbucks of course. Caryn bought a .Mac family plan tonight so we can sync user prefs, mail, address book, safari bookmarks and various other stuff on multiple macs. She wanted it for her laptop and i use it for backup. They have a very nice backup program built in to the software. I'm using it now to backup my 20 some gb home directory to our file server.
I also got my copy of iWork 06 today. Having trouble installing on caryn's desktop but i got it working on my laptop and she got it on hers fine. iLife 06 should could on monday or tuesday. I also got the unix programming environment (book) tonight. Its got a very nice shell scripting chapter. That was worth the money. Not bad for a book written in 1984.
I had to update the bsd server tonight (et, this site, etc). There were several holes anonunced this week in freebsd and i finally got to patch them. Still need to update a bunch of ports and my home router. Thats very taxed with disk io from my backup right now.
I installed redhat this week for my OS class. I have to write some linux kernel modules, etc. Its a bitch. I still need to build a custom kernel this weekend with no modules.
Caryn's watching tv. Still haven't taken the cable box back yet from midnights hairball accident with it. :(
