Fun with M17: I'm impressed. This is looking like it will be the first milestone release that I'll be able to use for day-to-day work; sub-windows are now opening properly for the web interface to exchange, and the classic theme (even though it's obviously a work-in-progress) makes actual use much easier on the eyes. Sorry guys, the default theme is hard to look at for any length of time. The only things really missing are decent Java support, and a new PSM module (which I'm expecting soon). Nice work, overall.
Back to school, sorta: Research is going to be my new middle name for the next little while; I've decided to start seriously pursuing a new business avenue, which means I need to be an expert on DSL, campus networking, and all the fun stuff that they entail. Anyone have any literature recommendations for someone who's relatively adept at networking, but just needs to fill in the gaps?
Inventory control: Before I start implementing my own inventory management system, does anyone have a free software recommendation? I need something that will track both physical assets (hardware, serial numbers, etc), and intangibles (software with versions and licenses, etc). If I end up doing this myself, it'll probably be a relatively generic database schema with a PHP frontend or some such. It's not that complicated, I'm sure a quick search on Freshmeat will turn something up...
