If you'd like to complain about the lack of updates to form and content on this server, you can buy me a new PC to do it
form. :P

My Win98 box likes to crash. It crashes more than the Concorde. Hence, I haven't been using it much. I coulda fixed the
computer, or my clutch. I chose the clutch. Go figure. Later days.

Server issues:

  • All systems are functioning within normal parameters.

Ha! Finally, some updates, although mostly in function, not form or content… My WIn98 box is more stable since I replaced the motherboard and processor.

Hmm, it seems to have been a very long time since I updated the server status for all of my adoring fans. No big hardware or software changes have been implented, but I did move the server to my new house. US West was late in getting the DSL set up, and the tech at Visi that I talked to (admittedly at 8:30 PM) didn't seem to understand what I meant by “switch it over to the new circuit”. A certain amount of hair pulling later everything was fine.
Everybody wants server space, but no one is willing to provide their own content. Okay, I'm exaggerating, but what the heck? I've given people accounts that are sitting dormant. Time to do some housecleaning. :)

My website had occassion recently to be picked over by some pros. There were some things that I was proud of, but mostly it was just me gritting my teeth and thinking “don't look at that!”. Oh well. Whatever comes of that inquiry, they've given me some food for thought.
Server issues:

  • Cascading style sheets are pissing me off! Argh. View the left frame on my page or the rally page for examples. If you don't see what I mean, try resizing them. Grrr. Oh well, another trip or two through the documentation should sort things out. Oops, or this page. Dang dang dang.
  • It doesn't look like I'll be taking over DNS for idlespeculation.com, since Kory used a provider that does its own DNS. At least it maps to the right place.
  • I have no idea if Kory will ever get implication.com fixed, but I'm set to host the DNS for that. Any time now.
  • I've taken over hosting www.rallymn.com, but I'm doing it in a sneaky manner. Instead of hosting the DNS, I just put the index page on the server that is officially hosting www.rallymn.com, and pointing the frames at my server.
  • I'm starting to get irritated at the sloth of the Cyrix P150+ that is running the linux box. I have a P200 that is sitting idle, so I'm thinking that it's time for a boost.
  • This isn't really a server issue, but I inherited a flaky new windows box. Sure the specs look good (AMD K6-2 450 w/96M RAM), but the previous owner had major crashing problems. Me too. I got it running in a somewhat stable manner and then decided to change the bus speed and clock multiplier. Instead of running at 100X4.5, I'm running at 112X4. The processor isn't going any faster, but the front side bus is begging to take a break (which it does without intervention by me). There are some BIOS settings that I haven't monkeyed with yet, so we'll see what I end up with.

I haven't done much with the server in the last couple of weeks. I've been fiddling with mysql and cgi some. The results
can be seen in my cars application, which isn't much more than a practice query. I've also been
fiddling with some other things (now that the mysql permissions are sorted out), but nothing important…

Server issues:

  • Still have to take over DNS service for idlespeculation.com and implication.com
  • I've taken over hosting http://www.rallymn.com,
    but I'm doing it in a sneaky manner.

  • I've got to remember to have the server boot into text mode instead of X-windows. It might save some precious, precious
    RAM, not that I've noticed any real performance issues.

Happy Year 2000, everyone!

I haven't done much with the server in the last couple of weeks. I've been fiddling with mysql and cgi some. The results can be seen in my cars application, which isn't much more than a practice query. Oh well. I've run into some permissions problems for creating tables and the like. Kory (the other sysop) will help me sort those out eventually, as soon as I can get a hold of him long enough to explain what's going on.

    idlespeculation.com

    and

    implication.com
  • There are many links that broke when Stan's files were moved over from the windows box. I've been going through and fixing them for him (because he probably never will). This is the importance of relative links and case sensitivity training…

smbmount works if you do it right. Heh heh.

    DBI and mysql have been properly installed. Now I just have to learn
    how to use them. :)

    Somehow Postfix and sendmail were both installed and running
    simultaneously. I deinstalled postfix- not knowing that sendmail was also
    trying to handle the mail duties, and voila, the linux box is receiving
    emails like a champ.

    The server side includes on this page have slowed it down some, but
    they're just so much fun…
