No entries tonight

I’m having a computer-free night tonight.
No blogging, no IRC, no chat, no browsing, no downloading, no patching servers, no configuring apache, no picture editing with the Gimp, not even email…
Scary.
I’ll be so… disconnected.
Offline…

Attack?

I have thousands of hits in my firewall logs like this:
00:01:48 input eth1 IGMP 219.18.133.231 65535 224.0.0.1 65535

Is this some multicast thing, or is it an attack, I wonder…
Too late tonight to worry about it now, I guess…

Voice Mail Server

I’ve been thinking that I may build a voicemail server – something to take my phone messages using the PC’s hard disk and convert them to MP3, then present them as an RSS feed or as a web page. I haven’t really started with it at all, just thinking around the idea a bit. The thing is, I don’t even get very many voicemails, it’s just that when I do, I can’t listen to them remotely.
Any ideas on what make this more interesting? Of course, caller ID could be used to check an address book for an email that could be used to send replies and such…
Keying a special code could allow me to make audioblog entries. Hmmm…
Anyone know a good callerID-capable modem that works with Linux? Off to search for VGetty…

Site was down

Got to work this morning and noticed that my site was down.
A bit of pinging and logging in to the router showed that it was just the web server box, not the whole network. Sure enough, when I got home tonight, I saw that a network cable had been knocked loose when I was moving some things around in there this morning.
Sorry if it caused any trouble. (Allow me the fanciful notion that anyone, besides myself, noticed…)
