20. April, 2008 - headaches

I expected to be doing this update earlier in the weekend. I really did. But Friday I stayed out later than I’d planned, which meant a later start than anticipated on Saturday with me hurrying out the door to get to the bank before they closed at noon, and then not getting home from the errands until a few minutes before 4. At that point, I noticed my server was down, but it was after 4 by the time I called to ask the colo to reboot it, and everyone had left for the day. So now I’m faced with a $160 service charge for that this morning or waiting until tomorrow. Grr.

So if you were trying to get your fix here yesterday, that’s what was up. Plus I spent all morning doing some long-overdue maintenance on the server, so now I’m not sure if I’m going to have time (and energy) for the photowalk I was planning on going on this afternoon.

But it’s pretty clearly time to finish kicking the last two customers off my server, and moving my websites elsewhere. I don’t have the time or energy to keep the server happy anymore, and it’s making me say Grr far too often lately.

That’s pretty much it for today, I guess. I had two rants that I was going to write yesterday, including a long bit on how I’d wasted most of the week at work trying to make my Vista machine happy again there (it has a scrozzed hard drive — I finally gave up and sent it to the IS guys to reinstall). But the energy for the planned ranting got sucked away by playing sysop. Maybe later, but most likely not. Enjoy what’s left of the weekend.
