  • A harowing upgrade

    I just dist-upgraded the blog server to jessie. A couple of errors from code with checks for which modules are enabled from .htaccess (deprecated and now obsolete behavior). Nothing all that rocky. Go team Debian!

  • UW Hypervisor looks stable

    UW Hypervisor looks stable

    The new hardware looks like it’s reliable. The one I swapped out 10 days ago crashed every 3 days or so for reasons I couldn’t discern. I changed that one for a spare I had laying around and have been hosting my blog on the machine to exercise it. So far, no crashes, and a […]

  • Replaced hypervisor

    The system which was hosting this blog had a tendency to go down every few days. I swapped it out for a spare yesterday. Let’s see if it stays up. The hypervisor hosts this web server, a mysql server and an SKS pool member, all of which are built on top of Squeeze.

  • Matthew Broderick broke The Music Man.

    I was reading Lefty’s recent blog post and was reminded (by way of a certain scene) of being pissed off by Broderick’s s/egg/globe/ in the 2003 production of The Music Man. I was going to put the following in the comments, but I decided not to in order to keep the conversation on topic :) […]

  • What makes Christians Christian?

    I was reading through Andrew Sullivan‘s blog and I’m intrigued by what folks seem to think makes a Christian a Christian. In my opinion, the only thing required to be a Christian is for an individual to consider themself so. It’s one of those “I think, therefore I am” kinds of things, as far as […]
