I tried hard to stay awake today, but I had to give in to a siesta. I guess my body is
still adjusting to a five day workweek. At least I was sleeping while an ISO image of
NetBSD was downloading.

Work is still keeping me very busy. I wish I'd had a chance to do some independent
learning about the different virtualization platforms that we use, such as VMware and Xen. I've been spending a lot of time working with them
lately. If I'd been advised to work with them before starting the job, I would be that
much further along in terms of setting systems up with them. Possibly, my coworkers
didn't know we'd be relying on the virtualization platforms so much. (They did tell me to
review BGP, which I did, but the learning curve for the virtualization platforms has been
steeper so far, it seems.) At any rate, in the long run, I think it will benefit me to
have virtualization experience.

On a related note, I also find I spend a lot of time trying to get the routing software we
use running on the myriad of OS platforms we have. I could've used some extra advance
practice there as well.
