Damn, I can’t believe how hard it is to keep up with this. Here’s what has gone on.

On April 30, 2005, I participated in the March of Dimes Walk America in support of my daugher, Ashlynn. We walked at the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. The problem was that there were two different routes to go. One that was 2 miles and one that was 6 miles. We had my 2 year old in tow, so we decided to go on the 2 mile hike. This sucked! The whole of the 2 miles was uphill, so it was particularly hard. The 6 mile, though longer, was downhill through the most of it. It was fun and for a good cause. I am glad that we were able to participate.

Well, I got back to Colorado and my job on 3. May, but was sick with a 102ยบ fever. That was no good. So I have been healing and such. Ashlynn is getting stronger and getting ready to come home. My wife called me the other day and asked if I would take my 2 year old during these last few weeks of Ashlynn’s hospital stay. I told her I would, besides, I miss my little girl. So, I am going back to Ut this friday and will be bringing my Emery home with me. woo.

Linux Front: www.themaskedcrusader.com is still under construction. Mainly because I don’t know what I want to do with the site. I have been working on my FTP settings and think I have an answer to the woes of ftp. I want one login to have read only access to several different places on my web site. So I created a Linux user for the server, but I was having a problem with links. Turns out that Symbolic links do not work if they point somewhere outside of the FTP root. I didn’t want to move my root or grant read access to my folder, so I finally developed a plan. First, I took away all upload/change access. No one can delete, add or modify files on the ftp server. The locations I want available to the world through the ftp have been shared out using the SMB protocol to a read-only share and mapped into the ftp directory. This gives the FTP account full access to view what I want it to view, but no change permissions, preserving my data!
