I read this morning that your approval rating has dropped to 25% which is the lowest that it has ever been. I just wanted to tell you that I'm sticking with you. You have been my guy for this long and I'm not about to give up on you now. Let's face it, we only have a little more than a year to go in your Presidency. So let's pull things together and go out on an up note.

I know at work, we enjoy setting our "Note" section in Microsoft Communicator. Well twitter is a little like that. You basically put in whatever your doing or think at that moment and it's kind of neat. I don't see the reason to do it from a business reason. The other cool thing is that m.twitter.com is an interface that you can use on a mobile phone or BlackBerry.
So if you want you can check out what I'm doing here http://www.twitter.com/packetman.

Had a strange problem where it would just hang on the boot up. So I took it over to the bench and hooked a monitor and keyboard to the box.
After looking at the boot sequence noticed that when the power supply died it upset the CMOS. So I pressed the F1 key to continue and all was good.
After it came back up, I decided to make an image of the drive. That way if it dies again I can get another hard drive and bring it back from the dead once more. So I downloaded Ghost 4 Linux and made an image.
So this box goes back into the cluster tonight and all is right with the world for now.
On another note, I'm just started a demo of the F5 FirePass box. I have had experience with the Juniper boxes and took a look at the Gartner report. Seems like FirePass has all the bells and whistles. I'm also reviewing the SSL VPN option with the Cisco ASA devices.
I will post more as I learn more.

Over in the far left hand side is where the power suppy was. I pulled it. As luck would have it, it's a pretty standard item. The power supply is made by Sparkle Power International and the part number is FSP250-601U. I found one on-line for about $65.00 from RackMount Systems.
