Well, it's Friday. I really haven't done much. Woke up after good, if odd dreams and felt really down. Reality not measuring up I guess. After a while, I just went back to bed for a nap. Was in a better frame of mine when I got back up. Decided to avoid leaving the house. Watched 'Alien' and 'Aliens', then switched to 'Jack Frost' aka a serial killer turned snowman...somehow I've missed this gem. Definitely needed the laughs.
I've also been doing the usual updates, and redoing some of them. Seems
that there's been multiple kernel releases this week. So I'm reupdating
the server updates I did last night. Also fixed one of the honeypot VMs
I run, somewhere in there iptables decided to block port 80, and since
it's supposed to capture web scans...it kind of wasn't doing it's job.
Really should probably setup some kind of remote nagios or zabbix so
I notice these things.
That's about it for today, going to stay up for a while longer. Looking
forward to Saturday celebrating. Oh, figured out when I'm going to see
Star Wars VII, Cthulhumas Eve. I really haven't felt much of the season
this year, no Cthulhumas Ctharols, only a few presents for people (my
favorite part of the holidays is spoiling my friends), and missing Mom.
So yeah, I really don't feel either it, either the holidays or the insane
version I come up with. I'd say 'screw it' and hermit the holidays, but
that would hurt people I care about, and to be objective, it would just make
things worse. So I'll play along, and maybe the power of friends will
win over depression...No, it will win. Friends are powerful. So thank
Cthulhu for friends, and hopefully 2016 won't be anything like 2015.
Catch you all later,
