A short entry, just to say I did…

Man, the boys must be coming down from the high of the camping trip.  Yikes, what a day.  They basically argued or fought all day, and never listened, of course.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day, since we’ll be going out and trying to buy a present for Marnie.

I played with VMWare Server alot over the last two days.  I’m running it under AMD64 based Gentoo, and it works quite well.  I seem to have a problem running pre-made Appliances under it though, and I’m not quite sure why.  I’ll figure it out.  I found an appliance that will image a drive over the network, so I’m hoping to create a VMWare Server hosted from an existing system.

If you’re interested in how a novel went from first draft to finished and published, this is a good read.

I also stumbled on to this article by James Alan Gardner.

A Dull Entry

Not too much to say today.  Yesterday was a mix of being rough and easy with the boys.  They managed to find stuff to do most of the day (of course I helped), and didn’t miss the camping too much.  But, no matter how busy I kept them, they still found time to get into a couple of fights/yelling matches.  Fun for all!

I’m still trying to get the house back in order after the camping trip.  Hopefully I can get all of it done before Marnie figures I’m slacking off too much.  And, I may have been.  I worked most of yesterday trying to get VMWare Server running under AMD64 Gentoo.  It’s working now, and should let me bring my number of servers down a bit.  I’m still not sure I want to though.  Hmmm.
