Busy is my new middle name

This summer has been pretty hectic, since the beginning of May, I picked up a second job at Pat’s Foods in Hancock working their trucks two mornings a week. On top of that, I’m still putting in hours at Resnet and am taking a class (World Resources and Developement) at Tech.

After the first couple weeks work has been interesting at Resnet (the first two weeks were full of the tedious process of disconnecting nearly 2000 users by hand). Since then, I’ve been installing and configuring Xubuntu on an old K6 laptop we have at the office. All I have left on that project is a couple networking scripts and setting up sudo access for a few commands for the user.

My other project has been setting up BackupPC for the office. Since this is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, I decided that the proper way to learn and test the program would be to isntall it on my home network to learn the configuration files. After a run-in with an rsync error I got it all set up and will be installing it in the office at the begining of the week.

Somehow I’ve even managed to find some free time and this weekend I’ll be going out to see some waterfalls. Life is good.

  1. My coworker and friend Wimble (Scott) works at Pat’s.. hes training to become a manager

  2. Seeing waterfalls should be fun.

    Do you think you can email me directions on how to get to Hungarian Falls? My mom and sister are coming up memorial day weekend and I want to take them, and honestly don’t remember how to get there myself.

  3. Dude Kyle,

    /me just ordered another 300GB hard drive for backup purposes and BackUpPC has been on my mind ever since we returned from PenguiCon. I have few questions about setting it up and will probably stop by sometime this/next week….

    post a list of falls that you go to and if you haven’t seen it yet, Canyon Falls (just off L’Anse – trails start from a rest area) is pretty good and worth visiting – at least for the trail itself and gorgeous sound water makes…


  4. Gowtham, let me know when you have questions about BackupPC, it’s easiest to reach me via my cell phone.

    We went down to see the Lower and Middle Falls River Falls, the Powerhouse Falls and Silver River Falls. I’ll have to check out Canyon Falls next time I’m down that way.
