Mail.app and IMAP Folders

For some time, I've been annoyed by Mail.app not checking all folders every time it checks mail. My situation is that I have an IMAP server at a colo, a Mac Pro at home usually with Mail.app running and more importantly, running its filters, and a MacBook running Mail.app that I take with me to work or wherever.

I've been Push-Polled

[music | The Coup - 5 Million Ways To Kill A CEO]

Tonight I received two calls within three minutes of each other, the first was an invitation to a Barack Obama rally in Nashua, which I've said I'll go to even though I'm not sold on him, and the second was an automated poll.

There were only three poll questions:

Cisco CSS Services Page

Fixed Tags:

Here's a quick tool to show up/down/suspended status for services on the Cisco CSS line of load balancers. It's intended to abstract the majority of people who will ask for this data from the device itself. Cisco's web gui is an abomination, and this is much more efficient to get the data you want.

The site this was written for had many webservers each with many localized sites, such that a list of services could be:

www1.company.com
www1.company.co.uk
www2.company.com
www2.company.co.uk
etc.

Config guide for FreeS/WAN and OpenSwan to Cisco PIX VPN

I've noticed some search engine activity hitting my resume looking for FreeS/WAN to PIX information, since I happen to mention both on there. I am currently running such a VPN, and decided I should tell people how I did it. It's easy.

Tools and Hacky Stuff

Here are some tools I've written which could be of use to other folks. It's going to be mostly Cisco related, some of which is still being formatted before I upload it, more to come.

CSSManager is a tool to simplify suspending and activating services in a Cisco CSS load balancer. It adds a couple of features like the ability to "lock out" a server and to add comments to a suspended machine to give context for its suspension. More features to come.

New Blog

I'm going to try out a blog on my own for a while, see if I can get it customized at all, and whether I like it better than lj. My guess is I'll be mirroring most of the content between the two for a while anyway.

Update:
I'm still in the process of moving blog posts over, and recreating all the old content on the new site, but I've decided to put it live anyway.

last.fm is retarded

[music | Gabby La La - Be Careful What You Wish For...]

I guess it's determined by its users, but any page that lists Gaby Lala as being similar in the slightest to Veruca Salt, Sheryl Crow, or Joan Osbourne has serious flaws.

Secondly, why do I live on the wrong side of the continent to see any of the artists I've listened to tonight?

Web-Designer "Defined"

[music | Bjork - Storm]

Why do companies constantly classify programmer/DBA/admins as "Web Designers"?

I'm 34, and an employed network administrator. I've decided to play with Drupal against my better judgment, it seems pretty straightforward, we'll see how it goes when I want to start editing the default themes, etc.

Meanwhile, you may find my resume here. I am currently interested in short to mid-term (3-6 month) contract work in the greater Boston and Southern NH (route 3 corridor) area.
