I wish there was a way to enforce the efficiency with which tax dollars are spent. I came down here for three days of technical training and two tests. I can take one of the tests (the book for which I left in Santa Cruz), but the other test I can’t take until the first week of July. I’m pretty sure I could pass the test right now, but given that I have to take the other one ANYWAY, I’ll just wait and take them both the same day. The funny thing is, noone EVER has to take only one of the tests; offering one without the other is a profound waste of time.
This time, however, I have an appointment. Which I guess means nothing, if they cancel it I can’t exactly sue them.
So I spent the rest of the day setting up a new linux firewall for my friends new cable broadband. I even set up a CIPE static vpn tunnel from here to my house. I have the c$ share on a windows machine at my house behind two NAT firewalls mounted on my linux machine here, behind the firewall I just set up.
It didn’t really accomplish anything useful, other than being able to delete all my temp files from 500 miles away. Perhaps the lovely lady noticed that browser performance increased slightly.
Anime of the day: DN Angel. Great story. Not sure where the plot is going, but the setting and characters are incredible. The animation is tight also, with a good mix of cg.
