The slashdotting wasn’t as bad as it threatened to be. In fact it was pretty lame, we got ~10,000 hits. I’m dissapointed by it as I wanted to see how much stress the server could handle.
In other news the bloody students in the Residencia (where I stay) did the usual screaming untill 3 o’clock on a Sunday night. They’re all giddy after they return from the weekend. It suffices to say that I didn’t get much sleep. Lastly, Mitext has hit a wall. There are no C# bindings for libbonobo-ui, hence one can’t write a full Gnome program in C#. I may start hacking on some bindings, just for the laugh.
Well that woud’ve been the last news if I hadn’t spoken to the “network administrator” in the Residencia. The guy has good enough English to understand what I think of him. He is a gobshite. I’ve informed him many times that his DNS dosn’t work. His retort is that it does work because he’s configured it and it musn’t be working for me because I run GNU/Linux. He has obviously never tested it and dosn’t realise that his wireless A.P. also runs GNU/Linux.
I was only pointing it out to him as I have to help the others when DNS fails, I have no problem with it…and newsflash, it only fails for Windows users. Some of the others complained aswell and he’s now reinstalling every (read five) client machines. How clueless can he get? The DNS server dosn’t work so he reinstalls the clients?
It’s not totally his fault, it’s actually a Telefonica DNS problem, but the stupid runt won’t listen. I’ve stopped using ADSL in the residencia as I think if he blames me for breaking the connection again I’ll hit him. Stupid admins make me angry…especially stupid admins who don’t see the solution when you explain it to them rationally and with diagrams.
