march update #2

Hopefully that was my one illness for the year. I had pneumonia last year, the flu this year. Should be done now (right?).

Tiff continues to have bad health. She now has a sinus infection, bronchitis, and laryngitis. So, she's off today and tomorrow. Luckily, Big Spring already had off Friday for conferences.

[Brady] and I released another version of NetMRG. We feel like we're making progress, but we just don't seem to be building too much of a community. We currently get most of our referrers from Tobi's site, and a decent number of hits from Freshmeat when we release a new version, but other than support requests, we don't seem to be getting a lot of attention. Of course, we think our biggest competition is Cacti written by our good friend Ian. Of course, it's our competition for good reason; it's very complete at this point, and has been in the public eye for much longer than we have, and that's been good for it. I think NetMRG will pick up more in the community; it'll just take more time.

I've also been doing a lot of thinking recently about what exactly I'd really like to do. I've been doing the Network Engineer / Application Developer thing for awhile now, and it's been pretty fun. I'm just trying to figure out what type of things I like to do, and in what role I'd like to do them.
