Feeling still more icky and dizzy. Trying to work out if it really *is* the antibiotics causing it, and whether I should stop if so.

That said, I seem to be hitting my low at early afternoon this week.


And completely unrelated: Can anyone recommend a good book on BSD for someone who's familiar with linux admin but it totally new to BSD? (ie, me)

(Note: the BSD server I'm using is FreeBSD, FWIW, but general tomes will be of interest too)

Already got that, as it happens - and yes, it's got good stuff on the various OSs.

However it's rather more of a reference book that one you can read straight through for the one OS, which is what I probably need now.

I would say the cannonical tome is:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/index.html

Covers most of what you need when admining somthing. A suprising amount of the items covered there also apply to NetBSD.

Cool... not available in Dead Tree format though, I take it?

If it's FreeBSD you're looking at, I've found FreeBSD Unleashed to be just what I needed. Mind you, I'm a lot less familiar with Linux and sysadmin in general than you are...

It might be a completely unrelated flu. Possibly one you caught off me (or i caught off you). Or a few illnesses only make you dizzy when they're going away.

If you're interested in the design of the opertating system kernel, The Design and Implementation of the 4.4BSD Operating System is very good.

dizziness might just be weird things going on in your inner ear as the infection recedes. Try not to move suddenly or quickly (tricky on a bike, I know) and do lots of nice relaxing stuff like having hot baths. Try ginger for the queasiness - even inhaling the essential oil or putting your head over a bowl of hot water with some grated fresh root in it can help.
