Technonerd Forever

Well, my latest project at home is redesigning my network. I have downloaded the Astaro security gateway, which is FREE for home use! You get web filtering, virus scanning, firewall, etc. You can even setup a DMZ (for the nerdier out there, I'll probably do it just for the heck of it). This will come in handy since my kids are on the computers every chance they get. I especially like the web filtering, since I can block whole categories, kind of like Websense.

I just got done rewiring my entire office. Of course I had to move furniture, and do some creative rigging, but it's done. Looks better, and it will work better when I am completely done with my network redesign and performance tuning my Astaro box. I must be crazy.
