Thanks to some generous donations and my tax return, I have obtained parts and put together a new server. This blog and a few other minor things are already running on the new machine, though as I write this, most of my other Internet services are still on the old server, saidar. The new server… Continue reading but the fourth one stayed up
I need a little information from anyone who might be reading this. Two things, one of which is probably too fanciful to actually pursue. The first item is a good pair of inexpensive shoes for the clipless pedals on my bicycle. I already have cleats from my previous pair, which are too small for my… Continue reading finding stuff
The 2007 Daylight Savings change was described in an email to me as “legislative ass hattery.” I have to agree with this assessment. I’ve just spend an hour and a half tracking down things that did not update properly when the time changed. It seems that the worst offender was Windows 2000, but we have… Continue reading gubment cheese
We went up to Access RV on Saturday and pulled the trailer back home. I set it up on Sunday to see how they did on the repairs. At first, things looked pretty good.
Tonight I spent one hundred seventy nine dollars and one cent on twelve light bulbs and six reflective flood covers.
I recently went back to work after a nice long vacation. I was off work from August 27th through September 7th. Kathy and I had grand plans to get a zillion projects taken care of during that time, but mostly we sat around and did a lot of nothing. Near the end, we did spend… Continue reading what fassbinder film is it
My digital photo collection is growing constantly, but I have not had an easy way to get them online. Until now, that is. I have installed gallery on my site so it is easy to make pictures available. UPDATE — I have created a clever subdomain for my gallery and moved it. It can now… Continue reading one hour photo
Tonight I was going to create a couple of titles for later blog entries. This was at about 11:00 PM. Now it’s 1:22 and my blog is finally back online. I was having a segmentation fault in PHP related to MySQL fetching. After recompiling PHP several times and not figuring out what was wrong, I… Continue reading zero stones … ZERO CRATES!
I’ve upgraded my blog again. I can see that my RSS feed URL has changed, so I apologize to everyone who’s tracking me via RSS that may now have a problem. When/if I decide to move the blog to the new URL, you can all feel free to hate me one more time for the… Continue reading wordpress 1.5 upgrade
I have registered two new domains … “atory.org” and “itory.org” are the names. Under strong consideration for my blog is https://purg.atory.org with a new blogname.. An old friend of mine that I haven’t seen in a long time owns ity.org which is much better than mine when it comes to using real words as hostnames.… Continue reading domain registration silly business
Because there never has been anything useful on my main website, I have decided to change the URL of this blog to just http://www.elyograg.org instead of appending the /blog … so my RSS feed has changed too. Update your readers as soon as you can. For now, /blog/* will properly redirect.
I read about Project HoneyPot on Slashdot recently, and signed up to help out the cause. I put pots on two of my domains and also donated two MX entries. So the spambots can find them, links to the pots are here and here. Although I have managed to eliminate virtually all spam from my… Continue reading luring the bears
Along with the .org, .net, .com, and .info versions of my ‘elyograg’ domain, my server runs Lower Lights, the domains that my wife set aside for a business, and some of the pieces of my friend Nat‘s domain. Eventually all of Nat’s domain will reside on my server. Currently I use a firewall product called… Continue reading ipcop firewall project
