OpenVPN

New project at work! Setting up OpenVPN. It’s great fun…except when it doesn’t work.

I love the Windows interface for setting up the Server. It’s straight-forward, and following the tutorial at http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html works like a charm. Setting up the client is just as easy, and the connection can be made in a matter of minutes.

Ruby on Rails – Success kinda!

Okay. I’m totally going to try this again, just to see if I can’t figure it out.

Ruby on Rails – A ruby based framework for web stuff. Basically, I haven’t a clue, but I’m going to at least try to get it running on Windows and make some rudimentary website things, just to see HOW easy it is once I get the basic syntax down.

My New C++ Endeavors

Awesome news! I’ve been asked at work to start doing a bit of GUI development for our NASA projects. They’ve said that all of their stuff is developed using Borland C++. Now with my PennMUSH development experience, I’ve taught myself a bit of C++ (though my PennMUSH development experience has been mostly debugging and making sure it compiles under Windows, so it isn’t too in depth).

Church Job Programming

Simple Update (as if you haven’t gotten enough already)

So I had this job opportunity open up over the weekend for a janitor position at work. All I have to do is call this one lady at the church. I’m planning on doing that tomorrow morning maybe before school. Boy, I hope I can pick up something.

On another note: we’re heading over to Loveland this evening for a visit with some friends. The excuse is to watch football, but none of us is very into football (even if Dad professes to be a fan). But it’ll be good to visit with those guys anyway.

Yet another note, I tried looking over the jQuery API and couldn’t quite figure it out. In addition to that, I researched Google Chrome theme builders and figured out how to do it manually in addition tothe little programs that do it for you. And, of course, I got all the videos listed below uploaded.
