More Snow Kvetching

I dug this really nice way out of my street to the next street. Guess what moron parked there? I don't know who the moron is, but they parked there. I had to dig myself out a second time, dammit.

I did make it to the gas station and back. Getting out of the neighborhood was a bit slow, but once I hit Randolph, the road was black and wet. The only real problem was avoiding the people walking on the side of the road. This is nuts to do any other time, but it was the only way to move about today. In fact, I saw many pedestrians and a few bicyclists. When it snows this much, people rediscover their feet.

Once I was gassed up, I started enjoying driving in the snow again. It makes me wish for a more open area to have fun in. heheheheh.

So, I think I can make it to work tomorrow. The government is closed, you say? Nay, I am "essential personnel." Nuf said.

I spent part of the day getting snort on the server box. Now that I've sat down and configured it, putting it up isn't so hard. I do need to figure out how to get it to send alerts by e-mail.

I just realized that I never put the ports updater back in, or any of the cvs updates. Damn. Bad me. I must find my .conf file for that. I looked for my notes, but I didn't find them. Dolt! Nor did I disable sendmail on the box. (I don't run my own mail server, and I don't know a use for sendmail otherwise.)
