Started playing with Plone3, to see if the Reflecto product might address a client's desire to maintain the "Windows Way" of working with a shared file repository (as opposed to something like Enfold Desktop). More on that later, but in the meantime, I had to build TextIndexNG3 again since Zopyx has a different version for Plone3.
Turns out I forgot to mention a couple extra steps to get TextIndexNG3 compiled and working on Windows.
I landed a contract to setup an intranet for a local company. They had looked at Microsoft's SharePoint, but decided it was way too complex for their needs. So they asked me to help them find something better. I originally planned to go with Drupal, due to its great taxonomy model.
I got Zenoss to gather messages from syslog today. Actually, I had it up a few days ago, but was having a problem that I finally resolved today. We already have a centralized syslog server in the data center using syslog-ng, so everything is hitting the monitor station. So logically it should be easy to feed the messages into Zenoss. But of course it never is. I ran into 2 problems:
Zenoss announced the release of version 1.1 today. Of course there'd be a new version just 3 days after I installed it! Looks to be very easy: just download the tarball, unpack, and run install.sh. But when I tried that, it died on the version of the python setuptools on the system. The Sarge backports repository only has 0.6a9-0bpo1, while Zenoss 1.1 requires 0.6c1.
