Oct 30, [Five For Fighting, "Easy Tonight"]
Well, it’s 9:30 PM and I’m just getting back to my dorm room, for the first
time since 6:30 AM. Today has been really long. When I got to work this
morning everything was normal, I went in, did some work and walked around,
typical day. About noon Nazanin, my boss came in and said we were having
a party in the Conference room, so I went in there and they were all carving
pumpkins and eating really good food. So I hung out in there for like an
hour, hehe. I got paid to carve pumpkins. lol. Well after that I needed
to go update one of our database servers, so I went into my office, started
it up and went to log in. Well it wouldn’t let me log in, so I tried every
password that I could think of and it still wouldn’t let me. So I logged
into the other super user account that’s on there and started looking around.
I noticed that last time it was used as a database server, it had been hacked.
They must have taken it off line just after that, but no one had noticed
it. Cause the last entry in the log was July 11th. So I spent like 4 hours
going though thousands of lines of log files cleaning everything up and
collecting evidence. Grrr. I was so pissed. I had alot of other stuff to
do damnit. But in good news I got a Dec 3000 300LX station today. That’s
cool. Only problem is that I have to find some system install disks for
this 10 year old beast. That’s not going to be an easy task. I already looked
the the main places, and there wasn’t anything there. So I’m going to call
up Digital (who was purchased out by someone a while ago, I’m going to have
to find out who that was). But yeah. That’ll be cool. So I now have like
7 computers sitting in my room that are running. I have to find a Hub for
Well after that I printed out a diagram of our website. And taped it up
to my wall, that was amusing. Then I just hung out for a while and left
about 5:30 to go to class.
Tonight’s such a great night for halloween. It’s not raining, but it’s
still overcast, the ground is wet, it’s lightening, it’s just a great night.
Yeah good times.
There was something else that I wanted to write about here, but I can’t
remember right now. Grrr.
