Like a unix system stuff is left one 'low' priority and when needed they 'exit' out and report. Maybe its just the way my head works - I'm often accused of spending too much time analysing a situation/problem etc but its always worked our the best way for me. But there is these damn side effects which go against what a lot of people may think.
Oh well, thats the life of a madman I suspose.
Tomorrow (well its today now) I have to sort out my nephews new laptop and sort out ip forwarding/routing on ipfilter. Its annoying me more as I haven't needed my networking routing knowledge for several years so its severely rusty.
