An unusually productive
day at my job as a Computer
Officer today. I fixed our problems with email, and I think we've found the cause of the slow network
ing that has been plaguing us ever since our office
move two weeks ago. (For the hackers out there: problems seem to arise when both the computer's ethernet
card and the network switch
auto-negotiate whether to use half duplex or full duplex.)
Today was also my fifth successive day without Usenet access, because the machine containing my home directory for my personal account is down. (That's why I've been on Everything a lot lately.) Being disconnected from Usenet was a pleasantly novel sensation for a short time, but I'm missing it now and I hope I get back on Usenet tomorrow.
