frustration, computer problems, oops

Hacking the pl^H^Hhome network

As if manually compiling mrtg and its dependencies and successfully adding it as a recurring launchd-fired service wasn't punishment enough, I will be spending this evening debugging an rrdtool install, and installing mysql to handle a Cacti web interface.

And all because my ISP took my "unlimited" service, upgraded it then crippled it after the fact: this is so I can monitor my router's PPPoA interface to accurately judge how much I've downloaded over a rolling 60-day period.

I'm on holiday. Maybe I should start acting like it...
