Person from TLUG: Server being moved. The move will be from Nov 27 to 28. We're planning to shut down the server on Friday night. Hopefully we'll be back up on Sunday night, but I doubt it. We don't know when the server will come back up. I asked them for some more details, but they haven't responded yet. The server downtime is probably going to be around Nov 26 PM to Mon 29th. No list during that time. .. has graciously offered to put up a temporary web server. Discussion of web and mail contingency plan. Planned server upgrade: 2, 160 GB, 8 MB cache, 20,500 yen. Also, 3000 yen for new server rails because of move. OSDN will organize this; we'll just pay them later.

LAN card auctioned for 100 yen.

Xen virtual machine. Really funky. Now in version 2.

SQLite. Now has page-level locking (not table-level anymore). Person says it's easy to use, lots of bindings. Has views, triggers, etc. Not separate RDBMS, but bound to process. Seems like a great idea.

IMMS for XMMS, tweaks your playlist according to your playing preferences. Uses SQLite.

frees/wan, openswan, openvpn, ipsec howto for linux kame

instiki - there is no step 2. wiki

erlang, functional programming language, might be easy to get started with. Developed from the beginning to be process-aware; distributed programming. You can update running systems. Can capture errors or send stuff. heartbeat, too.
