Christmas 2011 Recap

So I had about a week and a half off this year around Christmas. My initial plans were to do the family things one normally does around Christmas time, and there was plenty of that... visits with the parents and in-laws, dinners and whatnot. Too much food as usual, but …

So I had upgraded my wife's MacBook to Lion and discovered that, once again, Apple screwed around with Kerberos. This seems to be a recurring theme (and not a good one). After quite a bit of fighting and figuring, a few things have been sorted out. Once I've got it …
