Dan has moved in. We should get DSL today. Dan is waiting for the
DSL person, who will come at precisely "PM".
We spent some time trying to think of ways to coerce our download
bandwidth (we get 96K/sec download bandwidth, 20K/sec upload bandwidth)
into augmenting our upload bandwidth. I had various crafty ideas
which we dismantled on information-theoretical grounds; they
were equivalent in the best case to just compressing the data before
sending it. So I think we're stuck with 20K/sec uploads. Oh well.
I'm souping up Segfault's logfile analyser. It has TLD analysis
and it will have referer analysis as soon as Scott has Apache log
referer. We get a lot of hits from all over the world. I may do
second-level domain analysis as well, while I'm at it, eg. "most
popular .com domains".

I'm writing this in NetPositive on the BeOS (where else?). Browser Greetings does not properly recognize NetPositive; I'll have to crush that bug with an iron fist.
I got a network card from work. It was an Intel Etherexpress, not supported
by BeOS despite what the compatibility list says. Also, under Linux it
was giving weird errors. I looked at the source code, which claimed that
there were problems with it under faster machines.
So I swapped it with an NE2000 which was in the 486. The 486 is too slow
to manifest the Etherexpress bug, and the NE2000 is supported by BeOS, so

Dan: Aw, man! You already voted on the poll?
Me: Yeah, why?
Dan: It's not fair!
[We have the same IP address now, you see]
Me: You want me to hack the code so that it lets two votes in from
Dan: No, I'll use one of my many shell accounts.
