Ideas Made To Stick
Category : Commentary/MadeToStick.txt
I got this message the other day from a guy called Martin. I like getting mail like these, especially when it's also laced with humour, but also because it helps point me towards what I need to do next. It's not just computer programming that's needed to build this site, but also writing, story-telling, presentation and design skills - it requires multiple intelligences - and you must want to be interested in developing all these to be enjoying doing this, day in and day out. So here's the message from Martin :
Well, I know, too, there's a lot that can be done along these lines. Yeah, right, after I've figured out how to get SASLDB working (yet) again on Leopard ;-) But, seriously, those suggestions make sense. And I'd have wanted to be a writer or designer in other lives. So it's not like it's going to be all hard work. I would enjoy improving those pages. I just need to find the time.
But that's the great thing about being a so-called "free-agent". Life doesn't suddenly become a bed of roses but you do get to design your own ultimate, unique, one-size-fits-one job specs.
Mac OS X 10.4.10

I've updated my live Web, Mail and DNS server to Mac OS X 10.4.10, with all the latest security updates. All the services - web, mail, fetchmail, dns, ftp, webdav - continue to work OK.
So, it looks like it's safe to do the update, if you're wondering.
