It’s official

We got the house. My new address is 27262 Principe, Mission Viejo, CA 92692. We will be moving in on Oct 15th (plus or minus six weeks ;-)).

I’ve ordered data (1.5 megabit symetrical with 8 static), phone (2 lines with one busy-rolling to the other – I’ve decided to do my own voicemail using Linux rather than continue to pay the phone company to do VM for me – this lets me do a lot of neat things, and gets rid of their annoying quota. I’m planning on using one of the linux boxen – probably qm, since it will have the requisite two unused PCI slots – or possibly gateway, though I’m thinking of turning it into a windowze video editing workstation (it has a uberfast disk array on it which could be made even uberfaster by putting in tiny 10k RPM drives, and with QM and Chloe I think I have my linux needs met – although I may need to keep a redhat system around to run d3 on… )

Blah blah blah. The life of a geek.

    There’s a DIY guide to linux voicemail systems here that I’ve been sort of working on, but haven’t ever gotten a modem that works for. If you do, I’d be interested in hearing what type.

    Cool stuff man. Sounds like you’ve got the full home office thing going. 😉 But great maker, why the 15th?!?!?! hahhahaha (my Dads b-day weekend, we had semi loosening plans to be in big-bear… but who knows. anything could happen.)

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that you’re moving down here, but jesus man… that’s about as far behind the orange curtain as it’s possible to get. One of your neighbors will probably call the cops and report us as possible terrorists (scruffy looking young men carrying large black objects) when I help you move in… 😉
