Eh, this is probably a good thing in the long run (having to shut down all the machines and go through and see how they're doing, clean them etc... I had gotten kind of stuck with the idea that I wanted to see how long Sado would run w/o rebooting and it nearly went a year and it finally crashed due to hardware issues, not OS problems.
I think it's time to seriously come up with a plan for how I want to computerize my house. I have an idea, but I really slacked off as far as seriously making it get implemented. Once I had some machines working I got distracted and started dealing with other stuff... The Suns have just been sitting around collecting dust and for a while I was only using 2 computers. Sado as the gateway and Moya as the main machine... granted I could also put Talyn the laptop into the mix and this was one of the reasons why I wanted the gateway setup. Instead of only having 1 machine with 'net access I can hook up 12 (including the machine that serves as the firewall/gateway). So clearly I should try to get another 7 or 8 machines on my network (of course leaving 1 net drop for non-specific use or visitors ;)
All right, I think I'm putting myself to sleep with this post :-p... It's probably time for bed. I'll ramble about this some more this weekend (assuming that Sado survives that long).
