I officially know more about Rsync than I ever thought I would. It’s a mighty handy tool.
Long story short –
Currently doing a master <-> master -> offisite slave config.
Also set up a sql-based login system for both the primary and backup servers for ftp – annoying, as the backup’s mysql config is just different enough to give a man fits. in the data directory rather than usr.
About 45 minutes ago, work called and woke me up – the two machines in accounting are not talking to each other for some reason – some sort of sharing issue.
If they can’t get it to work, I may have to take the 90-minute commute all the way down there to spend two minutes reestablishing a network connection. That’d be quite annoying. We’ll see if I can walk them through it.
[edit – Ah, thank goodness. 10:49am, and I didn’t have to cruise all the way down there. back on track]
The 3-d movie yesterday was fun, as was the trip to the museum of art. Tina was nice company, too. I could eat another couple of those 3-cheese empenadas.
Last night was a delight, cooing into the wee hours of the morning with Allison until I was drifting into snoozetown. Pleasant, happy dreams followed.
Bonus – I can get to Sugar Sand via one bus from Hillsboro & Fed – 92 westbound to loggers run, once an hour at 20 past. (I’ll make it to the 12:20, no problem, but 11:20 may be over-optimistic)

Giraffe graffiti on a traffic post near my old apartment – taken en route home yesterday. Aw. Giraffes!
She’s a a hot, evil, size-changing redhead that used to be a Gorilla. How awesome is that, really? Forget Lesbian Batwoman… give me a foxy ex-ape in a leopard-ish bikini.
I’ve got some good thoughts to buoy me through Monday Meeting!
Every day is a new challenge, but I’ve got some good ammo to combat most challenges that come my way lately.
Post movie, we chitty-chatted and got ice cream before it was time to go – getting spoiled.. I just had a cone with Danny last Thursday.
Still haven’t seen Pirates (Movie-time conflict), and putt-putt is being saved for a day when we can get a bigger crew together.
Woke up on Saturday with a slight pinch in my back… must’ve slept a little funny the night prior… a hot shower and some stretching took care of the bulk of the problem in fairly short order.
Had a lovely day meandering about, looking for proper goodies to put in the apartment, sniffing at teak and rattan-type stuff. Saw a few things that had some potential, and a truly grotesque table that was also a drum made from zebra skin (and legs made from the hooves) which will give the more sensitive folk nightmares for weeks.
As always, we got a lot of good gab-time in, and I always enjoy a day’s worth of social-time.
After doing some legwork, we swung by Tijuana Taxi, and the food was jim-dandy. The place was basically a Mexican version of Crabby Jack’s – with better food. I’ll certainly be back. (I’ve got 2 additional good reasons to swing by there, it’s near both Danny’s house and Tina’s.) Since the refried beans were made with lard, I had the chile-cheese smashed potatoes, and they were tasty, though it took a moment to get used to the idea of mashed potatoes with a south of the border flair. I think I’ll have to get something a little lighter next time, because the veggie Chimichanga was just too much after an appetizer.
When we finished, I took the BCT home… route 2 to the West Terminal, Route 22 to Central, and Route 10 right on home. I ate so much, I was *still* feeling a bit overfed 2 hours later.
The bus ride was nice, too… the rain started to pound down, coming in sheets to the point where I couldn’t see more than 25 feet in any direction. Thankfully, the terminals are well covered against the elements. (most street stops aren’t so blessed.) By the time I got home, the streets were clean, but the skies had fairly dried up, for the final walking-leg home.

Watched Iron Giant last night, for the first time in a few years. Still as excellent as I recalled. While it played on the TV, I unpacked a few of the boxes stowed by the bookcases that needed weeding out. Found a bunch of old Legion Comics which distracted me for a bit while I put ’em in order and put them at the bottom of the linen closet, for the lack of a better temperature-controlled location. Followed up with The Swarm. (An Irwin Allen Sci-fi stinko classic featuring Michael Caine shooting bees from his eyes.)
