Next up on my 2015 Reading List: The Academy by Jack McDevitt.

The Academy (it feels weird to call it that) takes place in a few century distant future where humanity has been to the stars and found them next to empty. There are hints at civilizations that have come before (a monument on Iapetus for example) and others still around, albeit not at our same technological level. There are terrible threats: truly giant clouds of gas that seem to have a thing for destroying cities in several of the novels and a planet about to fall into a gas giant in another.

Been a while since I've actually tackled one of the Daily Programmer challenges, so let's try one out. From a week and a half ago, we are challeneged to make an adjacency matrix generator, turning a graphical representation of a graph into an adjacency matrix.

Input:

a-----b
|\   / \
| \ /   \
|  /     e
| / \   /
|/   \ /
c-----d

Output:

01110
10101
11010
10101
01010

• ## Setting up Postfix and OpenDKIM

Last week, I was presented with a fairly interesting challenge: add DKIM (via OpenDKIM) support to our mail servers (running Postfix). Given that I've never actually worked on a mail server before, it sounded fun.

• ## Laundry Files

Next up on my 2015 Reading List: The Laundry Files by Charles Stross. Even though this wasn't originally on my list, I ended up just reading this rather than reading two series at once. So it goes.
