Some day, I need to start getting out of the house more.Â if only so I’ll have something interesting to post.
I mean, let’s look at what I did today.Â I got home from work around 8:00 (work was pretty uneventful; I watched about 12 episodes of Red Dwarf, and read some email).Â I watched this week’s episode of NUMB3RS, read about a chapter of The Arrow of Time (actually a pretty interesting book on theoretical physics and temporal theory), and fell asleep some time between 10 & 11.Â After I finally got up (some time around 18:00), I did hack a bit on my webserver, setting up a “fake” .mac server.Â It works pretty well inside my home LAN, but I suspect that I’ll primarily use it for putting stuff from work onto my box at home; with my measly 384k upload from RoadRunner, downloading anything from the WebDAV space would probably take about 100 years.Â After that, I came back to work.Â I’ve watched Hellboy and about half of Fight Club so far.
Pretty exciting, eh?
Anyway, that WebDAV stuff is pretty neat.Â But keeping the hack in place to make the “My iDisk” link work will prove irritating; my IP changes from time to time, and I’d just have to remember to keep updating my /etc/hosts file to keep it working.Â But it is a nifty project anyway.Â Now if only Google would add a WebDAV interface to gmail, so I could split that gig among the email that I get (which is comparatively little) and a personal disk space of some kind.Â Oh, and a hack to reconfigure the “My iDisk” menu option so it’d actually open with a minimum of effort.
I’m really liking ecto, by the way.Â I’ve still got a few days left in my trial, but at only $18, I think I’ll probably register it.
And with that, I’m done for the morning.
