Programming projects..

I’m hacking on a system at work to automatically generate network accounts based on employee requests. So far I’ve gotten it authenticating against Active Directory (using adLDAP), and have rebuilt PHP with SQLite support.

Tomorrow I build the majority of the guts of the application and a basic proof-of-concept user interface. Wednesday I’ll automate the actual account creation, by either firing off an Expect script or by using the built-in Expect functions in PHP.

After all that works, I’ll throw the pieces together into a first revision of the production application and put it behind a secure webserver (so passwords don’t get passed in cleartext).
