No crazy people today

Today at work was productive. Really productive. For the first time since early in my wardialing past, I felt like I fixed something and made a difference. Steve (the senior admin) and I got Exim (a mailer), Spamassassin (a spam filter), AND ClamAV (Linux anti-virus scanner) to work on a Red Hat box. I also created a program that will later hammer the boxes with tests of mail, spam, and anti-virus filters. From hardware to working mail tagger. I feel this weird geek-like Zen that I have missed for far too long and feel far more in control of my tech career than I have in a while.

My former employer STILL hasn’t paid me the vacation they owe me, nor refunded me what they took from my Stock Plan. They won’t return my calls, either, which has me worried. Not that I can’t handle it financially, but that’s still like $2000 they have to pay me back, and I’d like that to pay off some debts.

No crazy people on the Metro on the way home, but my Metro card got demagnetized somehow, and I lost $13.10 on it. They gave me an envelope to mail out and get a refund. I have done that before, and gotten nothing back. Crap.

We took Scarlet out to Chuck-e-Cheese. She’s staying the night in our guest room. I read her a chapter from Pippi Longstocking, and she fell asleep.

I can’t sleep, however. I should, but I can’t. I’m having a party tomorrow, and I have to clean, and I have no dishwasher. It’s still under warranty, but I have to actually, you know, CALL them. Ugh. In the meantime, it’s all by hand.
