Yout know, I've been thrown all off by the Pandora thing. I've still been messing with minor things on it each evening, adding a few more bits of software, cleaning out Amy's spam (not just deleting it all, but looking through it for false positives) etc. So I haven't been answering email and I didn't make a blog post last night. I was going to say something about the new iPods. But I didn't. So here is a random post about not much.
In the mean time, Amy is on the one day overnight class field trip that her school always does the first week of each school year as a way for the kids to spin back up (and meet the new people). So tonight I'll finish up everything I want to do. Anything I don't get done, I just don't worry about right now. I want her to have the machine and have me done with fiddling and such when she gets back from her trip tomorrow.
Be sure to have it listen for SSH connections and make an admin account for yourself as well... that way you can ssh in and fix things if they are busted. I use this feature on reb's computer enough that it's quite helpful.
Way behind here. I had all that sort of thing set up within minutes after doing the initial import of her data. There are all kinds of nifty ways I can mess with that machine remotely if I so wish. :-)
excellent :) good planning sir!
