Paul's Blog Entries for January 2009

Monday 5th January 2009

Well I feel quite refreshed after taking a break for nearly a couple of weeks over Christmas, with my only vaguely work-related activity being to update my home desktop-cum-server box to Fedora 10 (uneventful) and of course to replace the ageing Iiyama CRT monitor on that machine with the shiny new HP w2216 flat panel display I got for Christmas, which is very nice.

I hope to push this into testing for Fedora next week but also need to work on getting my milter policy for SELinux backported from upstream into F-9, F-10, and Rawhide.
