Updates & stuff. (WRT life)

Posted 01-30-2011 at 09:41 PM by lupusarcanus (Lone Wolf)

Well, lots of curveballs have been coming down the pike lately and its made me (whom already is indecisive) a bit leery of what to do with my life. My Dad (for the time being) has decided to take a job in California and will be leaving March 15th (if all goes as planned). Now, the good side to this is that he says he can make 3 or 4 times more money than he makes here in Oklahoma. I also don't like Oklahoma, so it would be nice to finally leave this forsaken place. We'd also be moving to a big(ish)...

I've been feeling kinda depressed (more so than usual ) over the past few days...I've just recently gotten over a cold, and I may actually still be getting over it, so that could be part of the problem, but I also think it may have to do with the fact that I haven't really done much *new* WRT computers/Linux recently. I mean, I took my old "clunker" computer (the one with no discrete GPU and about 256 MiB of RAM) and loaded FreeBSD on it (I heard about how Arch's init scripts...

One button internet shutdown....

Posted 01-30-2011 at 02:23 AM by peonuser

The U.S. congress is thinking about making it possible to shut down the tubes here in the US. That scares me that they would think it would even be needed to be done here. Is there something we are not being told?

What if that were to happen here, could you survive? This is something to consider for those who insist to be all cloud based. Could you convert to an short term intRAnet? What options are...

Gloves for my feet - part 3

Today I wore my fivefingers for a ~ 12.5Km bush-walk. I was

and what have you ... nothing the like happened, even though
the terrain wasn't always easy. I did manage to lightly bump
my toes 3 times in the persuit, but didn't really do them any
harm - strangely enough. Going downhill on sharp rocks proved
a bit slower than I hoped for, but it was all good fun, and
when I've gotten more used to...

Upgrades never end.

Posted 01-30-2011 at 01:52 AM by peonuser

You have to keep up with the Jones with software. This is especially true with server upgrades. Upgraded Wordpress and that was pretty much a snap. Ledgersmb does not work any more because of php issues, but then I never really used it. Probably have to replace with Sql-ledger. One of the reasons for getting phppgadmin working. Moodle needs to be upgraded. Have a lot of classes installed in it. Have to backup the data. Want to start using Drupal, may just tank the existing 6.x install and go for...
