Hello again everybody. My web…

Hello again everybody. My web…

Hello again everybody. My webserver, Greebo, is back after a complete reinstall. I thought it was best to give myself a little bit of protection against harddisks popping, so Greebo now has a small RAID 1 array – 2 x 60Gb drives for all my data and stuff. 🙂

In other news, my week off is drawing to a close, and I feel suitably destressed and ready for battle to recommence next week 😉 It’s been a very very nice week off – big thankyous to everyone who made it so. 🙂

It’s been a while since I added to the gallery… so here’s a few pictures I took this evening of the sunset from Hampton. I don’t think they quite capture just how cold it was… And those fisherman? There are some people who really love their sport.

Hello everyone. Beautiful day…

Hello everyone. Beautiful day…

Hello everyone. Beautiful day today – clear blue skies, nice chill to the air. Almost perfect golfing weather, you might say 😀 I was threatened with legal proceedings this morning – which was nice. A letter which says (and I’m paraphrasing) “we can’t find your payments, pay up or else”. I paid on time, actually, and have done every month I’ve been a member. A letter coming up, I think. Grr. >: (

Woohoo… New CPU and heat sink successfully installed, with only a little bit of hassle in taking the old one off.

Oops – been a bit lazy round here recently. Well, hip hip hooray, Veri$ign have stopped their wildcarding after being politely asked to by ICANN. Woohoo! \o/ Ask, and make the case before altering a fundamental part of the Internet, next time…

Gaspode is about to undergo a processor-ectomy for the princely performance boost of 5% (Athlon XP 2100+ to Athlon XP 2200+ ooh). He’s been overheating recently, so I thought better safe than sorry and am replacing the whole kit and kaboodle. Hopefully he’ll sound less like a diesel once I’m done.

And… erm… I am dragging windows about and drawing likes between them at work. “Long time no see, Datawarehousing tool” 😉
