Short term plan

I have several items I would like to complete in the short term. Writing them down may help me commit to doing them.

To Do

  • Upgrade the NYI server to the latest version of PostgreSQL
  • Prepare the BSDCan and PGCon websites for 2009 (partly done)
  • Get MacPorts running on my MacBook
  • Get spamd running on the new server
  • Add a check to Nagios to check that system email arrives each day (e.g. ‘security run output’, ‘daily run output’)
  • Fix up my DVR and ActionTech router so it works with just one network connection
  • Finish off the Bacula migration story
  • Do some more work on OpenVPN CRL and certificates with passphrases (added 2008-12-01)
  • add items to this list that I have forgotten about



  • Adjust Nagios monitoring of my Nagios box to include a specific check for one FS
  • Move my FreeBSD gateway to be between the internet and my Verizon router – 22 Nov 2008
  • Adjust my Nagios installation so I can easily access it when not at home – 29 Nov 2008 : can access my home websites via the new VPN
  • Create a VPN between home and the outside servers so I don’t have to deal with static IP problems – 29 Nov 2008
