Well, done for today, here.

I'm going to go and get my oldest son and then go home.

Yesterday we had a failure on the Internet access and it's in those times when I do realise how much things are becoming dependent from this for of comunication.
I still have some little issues that are apearing, yet in result of the changes made when I upgraded the servers and that makes me realise how much I do habe to learn and the little time there is to do so....

Well, I think that soon enough I'll have some new computers (rack mounted) to use as the internal servers... It will be fun to work with them!
I just hope they don't take a long time to be here!

Anyway, I just want to wish you all a very good rest of day and we'll meet again here in LJ land....

Just some random considerations....

One thing that people usualy don't realise is the amount of details that are needed in order to put some system working, like LJ or any other complex system, for instance.

Ok, I've setup LJ once and I know the number of details that must be taken into account.
I've been managing the mail servers here for a number of years and I do know the number of details that can arrise from it.
I've been dealing with the problems of users who don't know how the system work nor want to know.
That simply attach large winword, excel, powerpoint, mpgs and even all sort of executable code without even trying to copress it so it would be transfered faster and more efficientelly.
Users that do insist into open all attachments they receive even when they are executable code and they don't kow were it came from.

I see it in the number of virus that I've been blocking at the mail server.

So I don't complain when a system don't work. I try to see why it doesn't.
Although some times it it time comsuming and requires a lot of effort....

But is fun to learn.

Well, back to work....

One thing I can only feel happy and proud about if the fact that my oldest son (3 years and 8 months old) some times turns to me and says that the reason why he makes so many questions is because he wants to know and want's to learn everything!

Yay! That's the way to go, Gabriel!
