It's been one of those weeks.

I was completely and utterly floored by a problem at work today.
To summarize very quickly, the northbound of two routers was proxying it's MAC for that of our dhcp server, killing the effective relay of packets.
This wouldn't seem so weird, except the north & south-bound interfaces on said border routers weren't in the subnet of the dhcp server. But there it was, clear as day, an incorrect arp entry where they should have been none in the first place.
Come to think of it, it's quite difficult to explain without talking in circles. Ahwell, I may give it another try later when it's not half-past midnight.
New 4.8 flashboot in the works. A few minor compiling issues encountered so far... this will probably wind up being the funnest build yet.
Thinking of re-installing the comment module with some captcha goodness. Having used drupal 6 on another project, I've pretty much convinced myself to upgrade to that as well.
Ho-hum. Another page of content in the works. Probably have it linked up in the next few days - depending on how creative I'm feeling between now and then. Another one of those 'of little, to no sense' to most, but oh-well. We'll just have to see I suppose.

Fortunately, it's almost over. :P

This, however, may be the least irritating thing you hear this year.
