Yay new toy! (Well, just a hard-disk, but important nonetheless)


Ken dropped off the hard-disk a few minutes ago. Suppose I should start planning how to move over to using it. However, for now, work on creating a full-plant simulator in TwistedSNMP.

Deadlock broken (Yes, gentle readers, the deadlock is broken)


Finally managed to convince PostgreSQL to import an older version of the database, so I'm now working through various minor glitches (version mismatches) on my way to actually being able to determine whether the old scanner really is hosed... you know, that sounds dumb even to me.
