This blog entry is only some miscellaneous fun from my SambaXP expedition ;-)
The following pictures illustrate my multi-tasks capacity, I'm working very hard while reading my new PHP5 book :
Something I was very surprise was to find some Apollinaris water, I thing it was close to 15 years that I didn't drink/see any, so I had to take a shot of it :
Jerry shows us some other nice features and some very dark uncommented features form our M$ friends.
One of those nice features is the possibility to setup a Service Control Delegation that allows users from certain groups to start or stop some services running on the GNU/Linux server like cups, apache...

I'll try to blog every time I have a break.
The first session of the tutorial by Jerry is very interesting but maybe a bit too fast. I can't imagine how difficult it is to follow this session for none samba experience people.

first, the Perl script's source (Copyright fred... but in GPL !) :
I spend in average 1/6 of a day on in my car ! With all the disadvantages of that : backache, stress and the most... wasting my time :-(
I've tried to leave at every hour, early morning :
always with the same result :
