new office woes...

hmm - new company, new job, new boxes to play around with ;-)
while installing freebsd4.3rc on my desktop box i noticed the funny things, gcc optimizations can do to shared library code... try for yourself and make world with CFLAGS=-O2 -march=pentiumpro -pipe

in the past i did a lot of server stuff, the funnier projects are gm europe, shell 12move and big brother which are pretty high volume (eg. multi-TB/month+) sites. i also deployed a 500gb ftp server at which is dead now due to their lack of technical understanding...

more to follow soon,
