The current task (snmp agent upgrade) has actually started coming along well. I may actually see light at the end of the tunnel. I've only a few files left to go, and I'll have merged the Broadcom hacks to ucd-snmp-4.1.2 into a ucd-snmp-4.2.6. I will then, of course, have to do the same thing again, merging in our hacks. But knowing the practical nuts and bolts operation of how to do it, plus having a certain "comfort level" of "swimming around" inside a given codebase, is most of the battle.
I enjoyed another "fish friday" with elfs and omahas. Dinner was salmon baked with fresh pesto. How fresh was the pesto? I went out and picked the basil while the meat was defrosting, that's how fresh. Yummy.
