Observations from this week

This has been a crazy week for me. Most of this is related to work and personal life. I have a few observations and it's going to sound like a rant.

Someone I do work for is testing a new SSL VPN solution. This is a VPN that just uses the web browser. I was looking forward to ditching the Windows VM which I pretty much use only for VPN. This particular VPN has been configured to require Windows. What the hell is up with that?

We had the BSD User Group meeting yesterday. Somehow, the meeting room got double-booked between us and the Commodore 64 Club. I say club because no one actually USES Commodore 64 computers for anything anymore. They just look at them and play text adventures on them. At first, I was excited to see the C64 laptop there, figuring someone may have actually installed NetBSD on it, but no. It was just a C64 laptop (there's a model name or number for it but I don't care enough to look it up). Then, I got to thinking about NetBSD. You probably could get it working on a C64. I co-worker of mine suggests that you could probably put a dead hamster in a shoe box and get it to run NetBSD. I don't think that's too much of a stretch.

The C64 club had KCBug outnumbered 3-to-1. This pains me. Had it been a PerlMongers or KC Linux UG meeting I wouldn't have been so hurt, but seriously, KC guys. This was a a disgrace. Get with the program and come to KCBug next month. Please? Thanks. Meeting details will probably get posted to the KCBug Mailing List.

The PHP user's group is tomorrow. I'll probably be there. So will Asmo.
