Right after he finally returned, I was the primary contact for a big project that just wrapped up this past Friday after three weeks of preempting everything else I was working on.

I’ll still help… Read more »
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… Read more »
