Found it!
I've been having one little problem with the new server - my load averages have been high (.35ish, most of the time). This weekend, I took a bit of time and watched top.

Mimedefang (my mail filtering code) was calling the command-line version of clamav (the virus scanner) instead of the daemon. So every single email caused clam to start up, read the virus definitions, then shut down. And I process a lot of email - 1500 messages a day on weekends, 2000 a day on weekdays.

I set the flag I'd forgotten to set, and now my load averages are down where I'd like to see them - closer to .15.

Fixing this sort of thing always makes me happy.

We are going to fly into BYY for a few hours tomorrow.. probably not long enough to visit, but I thought I'd wave a virtual hello!

Ah, so close! We'll manage lunch eventually, I'm sure.

Enjoy the humidity. :)

You picked a great day for flying down here - thunderstorms everywhere. :)

Tell me about it!! By some freak stroke of luck, we managed to get in and out without more than a light drizzle. I guess the storm broke just for us or something ;-)
Looks nasty down there now, however. Hope you are staying dry!
