Rsync Done, LPIC and Minecraft

Friday I began looking at the IBM docs that Matt was talking about. I couldn't get to read them earlier since I was working on that backup system. I didn't get to read much but it is really short and if Matt could pass with it then I think I could...

So at the moment I'm reading those docs and I'm waiting on Devin to get the server ready so I can deploy that rsync script. I talked to him on Friday and he said he would give me an e-mail when it's ready.

I also played around with Fedora a bit... I have a computer at home that I use as a server that is running Fedora for the LPIC. I had to "make" a program and I had some missing dependencies(How am I supposed to know what you want?). I installed 2 different things (using yum!) and one after another I found another dependency so I just did a "groupinstall" in yum and I hope I finally nailed it. In a real environment I would do that but I was a bit "flustered" with Fedora (WHAT'S THAT? YOU WANNA INSTALL SOMETHUN? GOTTA USE ROOT! NO SUDO FOR YOU!) so I didn't want to deal with it. I also learned some things about being an admin on a game server (witch hunts) but that something else...

  1. *Please* tell us what you learned about being an admin on a game server. A real world, personally motivating context like that is the *best* way to learn something.

    Don't hold your breath waiting for Devin on the backup server. I'm asking them to reinstall on it and to add another NIC, so it will take awhile.

    Lastly, I just got a donation of 3 NeXT workstations. You may want to test your Unix chops on them at some point.
