The last few days have been busy as hell for me. Since one of the many hats I wear at work includes Network Administrator, I spent the last few nights building, configuring, and installing a firewall. For the most part things went smoothly, and I’m just working out a few minor kinks in the system. The unfortunate side-effect off all this work is that my free time suffered. Monday and Friday were the only days I was able to do any writing. Hopefully now things will level out again and I can make some good progress.
