  • PHP go boom

    Posted on April 9th, 2010 Netboy No comments

    Well updating the the latest php release caused teh whole php part of the server to blow up… after rebuilding from scratch, php is working again (since you can read this) and it looks like I will be rebuilding it later tonight to take advantage of the new way of running (fastCGI vs. isapi as it runs right now)

  • Last Semester, It is about freakin time…

    Well it is half way through the semester, and so far everything is going smoothly. I’m enjoying the classes and having fun (for once) The server got more RAM (it was a good deal) and is ready to keep adding more people to it. The basement is starting to take shape as I finish the bar and prepare for drywalling some of it to make some rooms

  • So much for life calming down

    Well, I guess it still did in a way, but with trying to get class work done before the final, getting stuff done at work, and keeping up with websites, it seems I’m just as busy as ever… Last night the server was down for a bit as I upgraded the memory in anticipation of hosting some more sites, as well as updates that needed to be done. I’m off to do some more work, so until next time…

  • What a Ride! Sitting on the dock at the bay watching my car float away.

    Yes, It has been a long while… Many things have happened since the last post. School screwed me over by not overriding the class that I needed to graduate cause it is full. On top of that, they are no longer accepting another class as a sub, so now I have to take TWO major electives. YAY ME! So next semester is the magic time of graduation.

    After all that, a good portion of the county got flooded, including parts of my neighborhood. Fortunately we suffered no damage and could get places, but half of the neighborhood was stranded, and some of the fields and trails were destroyed.

    Work is still work, and I’m still running around with my head cut off. Shouldn’t it have settled down by now? sheesh…

  • Ah… the first day of school…

    Is a nightmare… well not exactly, but when you have to take care of elementary schools, and the parents can’t let little Billy ride the bus, it gets pretty annoying. I know it is a special day and all, but at least let your kid ride the bus to school. It is your tax dollars going to waste if you don’t. I love that the district decided to cut a number of stops, and parents complained that their kid will have to walk further. Maybe if you used it to begin with, the county wouldn’t have to cut stops.

    In other news, my university decided to screw me over again by deciding not to offer this one class anymore. One of the two I needed to graduate. At least they let me sub in an elective (Yay web development I) but still a pain. One day I will graduate… one day
