Things for a Geek to Do

Although I’ve been busy with a lot of work lately, I have been thinking during my commute to work about what I would like to do if I had more time. Here’s a list of things that I would like to accomplish in the first half of 2007:

  • Investigate the use of Logical Volume Manager (LVM) for the Linux operating system to create consistent snapshots of secondary storage volumes that can be readily backed up
  • Deploy a backup system that minimizes the loss of personal data that is stored on all computers within my home network
  • Read Richard Stevens’ Unix Network Programming to validate the way that I use the sockets API
  • Find and help an open source project to practice reading code written by others
  • Check out Python or reinforce skills in Javascript
  • Learn more about common practice in administering GNU/Linux and Unix-like operating systems
