Todd just had to bail on Burning Man. I'm bummed. Probably not as bummed as Todd, but bummed. And now our logistics change, too. Damn. Did I mention I'm bummed? Damn.

And furthermore, I don't know if it's just the heat making my firewall flakey, or if I'm getting hit pretty hard with a port scan, but I wish my net connection wouldn't suck right now while we're firing email back and forth trying to resolve what we can cut back to.

Yay! The wonderfull goddesss mistress Patricia has agreed to tow the trailer! As long as we walk 3 paces behind her at all times on the playa. I suggested that we wave palm fronds too, but was promised 7 lashes for not realizing the potential litter issues of palm fronds...

I'm still bummed that Todd's not going to make it, but now I'm not imagining last time I took the Maxima and had it scraping the wheel wells 'cause of all the water in the trunk. And I get to take the ancillary projects.

Pictures when we get back. Well, of some of what goes on, at least.

Burning Man: I really should empty out what little personal bank accounts I have and go. Before I am too old and dead to survive it.

regarding firewalls and such: The portscanning ip-spoofing, code red, code red II, and general exploit activity is just freaking ridiculous.

You are probably seing side effects. I built a dedicated sniffer server to manage it. www.ntop.org helps a lot. --Mike--
