My home server is dead.

My “rhs” finally died. I updated the story page with some short notes about why and an interesting side note: “Radio” and MacOS X 10.3's fast user switching. Radio behaves fine in that environment, still picking up news, responding to local and remote web requests, downloading attachements, everything.

This doesn't mean that I don't have a backup plan. It's time to retrieve the G3/300 Beige box and make it the home server.

Johnny Carson and Adam's quote of the day

Adam's quote of the day:

qotd december 5. Johnny Carson: “I was so naive as a kid I used to sneak behind the barn and do nothing.” [Adam Curry: Adam Curry's Weblog]

I'm a huge Johnny Carson fan. I grew up begging to stay up late to watch the Tonight Show before Jay Leno destroyed it. Mr. Carson (yes, he deserves the Mr.) always treated the audience with a level of class that Jay doesn't. Note to Jay: you don't have to insult my intelligence or dive low to get a laugh. Watch some Tonight Show reruns for examples.
