Late Nights

Well, another late night on a weekend, another set of improvements to my blog. Nothing visible to users, just some tweaking of the fastCGI so that I can use the xmlrpc interface to let me do posts with the ScribeFire plugin for Firefox (or any other blogging tool that supports MovableType, Blogger, or other blogs that have xmlrpc interfaces).
I also went into work today and did about 3.5 hours of work to get some servers ready for Monday. And I’ve been monitoring some network outages. I also put an hour in before that trying to get my VPN certificates updated so I could login from my virtual machine and laptop and not have to disconnect my main machine from the web…unfortunately the certificate server was down so that was a bust for now. So not really a relaxing Saturday in one sense, but it was all stuff I’m interested in and felt motivated to do, so I guess that’s good.
I’ve been trying to figure out good ways to read all my news feeds lately, and I’ve decided on Google reader as my top choice, but with an assist from Feedreader to handle the Livejournal feeds since Google Reader doesn’t support authenticated feeds–necessary if you want to see friends-only entries on your friends’s journals.
Anyway, it’s 2:00AM so I should go to bed. Got church in the morning, a busy week ahead of installing new storage,and an old friend coming into town next weekend which is also my birthday.
