Today I helped align the pole our little (3.8 meter) satellite is going to sit on. It doesn't sound like much but it was a pain in the butt because it has to be perfect. Not to mention that I'm a fragile IT geek and not accustomed to using tools and muscle :) After much swearing and slapping of foreheads gorgonous and I got our multicast capturing script working the way it should have been. Now we can capture raw MPEG2 streams to disk directly from the ethernet. Pretty sweet :)
After work I spent about an hour cleaning up my yard. I've been trying to spend more time in my yard. After about a week of doing it I can already tell it looks better. It definitely needs more attention though. I put the last (third) coat of urethane on the dresser I've been working on. I've been working on it for a week now, I'm tired of not having it done.
