DNS Strangeness

There’s some DNS funny business going on with this blog the past several days. I’m still trying to figure out exactly where the problem is. DNS has always been one of my least favorite things to deal with.

Site Outages

This and other sites of mine will experience a few outages this weekend as the servers move to a new temporary data center. Update: Server is snug in it’s new home. Will be moving again to a permanent new data center.

2007

It’s now 2007 for an hour already. So here’s to a great 2007! On the plus side, it’s nice to see at least this blog updated the copyright on it’s own (though an hour off since the server is GMT -6 rather than GMT -5 like I am. I’ve got to make the rounds and […]

A Festivus For The Rest Of Us!

Happy Festivus! Just in case anyone was wondering, I made the Festivus Pole in this post using Inkscape, which did a pretty good job at making it easy enough for even me to do silly little work, and I’m far from an artist. It even lets me output svg, though I uploaded a png since […]

Vacation

I’m back from vacation. Like two years ago, I spent some time in Holland visiting family, and then some vacation time in Spain (Mallorca to be exact), then back to Holland for a day and a half. Just starting to catch up on things, so be patient if your expecting a reply from me. I’m […]

Site Maintenance

Like every good master, did a little site maintenance. Well, quite a bit actually. Most shouldn’t be visible (just yet). If you notice any problems let me know. I did correct a few pesky things, but you never know what may come up. Had a problem with trackbacks not working, though that should be resolved […]

Should be the last few days offline

I’m expecting a fixed laptop this week, I think every possible delay has run it’s course, so I can’t imagine how anything else can delay it now. So once again, I’ll be somewhat offline and slow on pretty much everything. Next weekend a bit limited as I test the laptop out a bit, and hopefully […]

Yet another week

Yet another week with no laptop (though hope to have it back fixed shortly… perhaps more details on that later). So it’s lab only until Thursday. I’ll be checking in, but don’t count on speedy email replies until then.

International Blogging for Disaster Relief Day

Today is International Blogging for Disaster Relief Day (Andy Carvin’s Idea). I think it’s rather appropriate. For those wanting up to date information on what’s going on, check fark.com which has a few slow loading, but information filled threads from people gathering news from all sources. I think I’ll just leave it with a link […]
