watching the fishies

an eee box pc running openbsd hooked up to a dell monitor on a neoflex stand to rotate it, running a full-screen firefox which views a webpage displaying some graphs from superblock aramid (network management system) that update asynchronously every minute through ajax.

Awesome! You did that page yourself?

yeah, pretty much. i wrote the snmp data collector, the custom data storage engine, the web application that presents the data and device information, and then the other solitary web page running on this other computer that just loads and displays the graphs from the primary server. the graphs are drawn client-side in javascript with a slightly modified version of protochart.

that's just sexy...

Wow, that is probably just about the most perfect thing I've seen! Any chance you'll be open sourcing that? Regardless, the style of it is super slick.
