Sheep at Burning Man
Alas I will not physically attend Burning Man
this year. The sheep however will be my proxy: they will be in the mix projected onto the
rose window at night. Best time to check it out will be Friday before the burn for an all-night dance celebration.
What happened? I was going to go... but a combination of factors has conspired to keep me in SF: getting evicted, laptop died, and exciting gigs in the queue...
more on those later. For now, i gotta get wifi working on this X40 in Linux. yea.

I will be offline (no email, no phone, no blog, no shepherding) for the next week,
on vacation with my family on a lake in the Cascades (east of Seattle).

Sheep Seed Thing
wrote the Sheep Seed Thing to allow any server to contribute
bandwidth to the distribution of sheep. It's running on ethereal
which already donates a lot of bandwidth
to the sheep project. It's packaged as a unix
daemon with an "rc start/stop" style interface, so you can run it from cron totally automatically. It reads the RSS feed
and downloads all torrents with the python bittorrent
client. It also depends
on wget but not on any perl modules. You will need to customize
Feedback welcome. You can email dean directly, or comment below.
I think with a few hacks you should also be able to run this to fetch sheep for your client if you have linux, instead of running azureus.
