I am mulling over whether or not to go to DFW again. The CUG is tomorrow and it is an interesting topic. I just hate 6 hours of driving and less than that of really being there. As usual, I am apathetic about it.

I went to the coffee place near here and the usual crowd of kids (well, 14-18 year olds) were there. It ended up being a big weird discussion forum for 2 hours before I left at 1:30am. I am sure there will be a half dozen more people in the morning willing to sign the paperwork stating I am insane.

I set up the table for the network gear and have done nada to set up the gear. I want to get a UPS for the area but, to be honest, that is no excuse for not setting up the gear. I spent two hours messing around with some VPN client software instead of reading. Man, I have no real motivation this week. Maybe I can go get some sleep.

Fark driving to DFW. There is a storm here (keeping me awake) and it looks like a huge front RIGHT over the state...meaning it will piss rain all day tomorrow, I bet...just like it is now. I guess I can spend the day studying until I get called to come in to work or something.

I spent a few minutes looking for a deal on UPSes in the OKC area...there are none I can find that impress me enough to run out and buy one. I guess I can either wait for a deal or head to Dallas (maybe this weekend w/family) to see if Frys has any.

Until then, I will just setup the the few routers, few switches and one PC (for now) with just a surge suppressor.

Having a day off from work (even if it was without going to the CUG meeting (which is almost over right now)) was refreshing. I need a few more. Next week is my week for evenings (also a week when I can get stuff done) and the next week I head to Dallas for work-related crap for two days. Then, a full week off in San Antonio (just one day is training). I will have some time to read and read a lot. If I weren't already going to SA that week, I would be looking for air and hotel for LV since there is a security-related conference there. It isn't one I am too keen on attending but better than nothing...especially since it appears the conference/convention trade is SO bad Comdex was cancelled. If I don't have a conference to go to in LV, I will have to look for some people(s) to travel with. I know all attempts to date over the last year and a half to get someone to go to LV (regardless of incentives) have been entirely fruitless. Anyone interested?
