I'm alive.

I have my head down, I'm doing things. Lots of things.

We're fully multihomed now at work. I spent today tweaking our bgp so the traffic is mostly in balance, and our routing is (mostly) symmetrical. Hooray for BGP communities and stupid carriers like internap that fuck with them, forcing me to have an arms war with my peers so I can route traffic how *I* want to. I may do a selective no export to them tomorrow to the upstream I have that uses them if they keep doing this shit. (why should I have to tell UUnet to set me as localpref 120 just to get my announcements to leave UUnet? It's ridiculous.).


I'm enjoying my house. I'm enjoying my life. I'm enjoying my work. I'm enjoying my wife.

Hopefully later this month or next I'll have stories to tell. This month is just too fucking busy so far, not that I really mind that.

Just noticed it's been like 15 days since my last post, and I wanted to let you all know I'm alive.


PS: This is the first presidential primary I have not participated in since I have been registered to vote. Fuck you very much, Democratic National Committee, for what you did here. If it weren't that I detest (almost) everything the republican party stands for, I'd vote for their ass.
