Next I turned my thoughts to logging. If the processes are going to "log" things (eventually to a text file) I should probably create something to stub out that function. Is that even the right word, stub? I used to think it was a placeholder so other parts...

Story

Sysadmin. Wanna-be author. Dreamer. Cynic. Amateur Programmer.
Introduction

Opinions are my own, yada yada, insert standard disclaimers, blah blah...
