I must've missed that when I ported over the new config file. In looking
at it again, I realized that I had also left out the var for SPADEDIR,
which I distinctly remember setting to /var/log/spade at one point. No
wonder the bloody thing wouldn't run. I'm surprised it didn't spit in my
face. Oh well, sometime another pair of eyes, live 'n learn, yada yada
