Yes, it’s still broken.

I still can’t access my web server and e-mail. I was able to see the web server when I was at my parents’ house this past weekend, but I couldn’t access e-mail from there with Eudora. From home, I get nothing…but apparently Babelfish can see it since it was able to translate a page (although […]

Tip #252: Don’t use DSL service from a bankrupt company

My web site’s down. Covad, the company that was providing the business-speed DSL line to the server, is bankrupt. Actually, they have been for a while. Brian (my friendly neighborhood sysadmin and friend with the DSL line) switched over to Verizon (yeah, I know they suck too…but they suck less than Covad) but apparently the […]

Workin’ for da man?

I got a call today about a contracting job for the mayor’s office in Brockton. (That’s about 45 minutes away.) It’d pay the same as FreakBoss paid, but it would be full-time, on-site contracting…so 40 hours a week instead of “whenever I find enough stupid clients, make you drive down here and wait around before […]

My server is flying blind!

It turns out my server had a double whammy. The video card died while the DSL was down. I guess that caused some sort of hardware error that froze the machine. It’s up and running again, but without a video card the console is useless to anyone who needs it. We’ll be moving everything over […]

LEGO and TOKYOPOP can bite me.

A while back, I got a letter from The Lego Group asking me to change all the references to “Lego” on my Lego web site to “LEGO”. I ignored it. This is why. Just thought I’d share. My web site had better be back online sometime in the next 12 hours or I’ll be royally […]

Down, down, down.

My web server and e-mail has been down since about noon. That sucks. I’ve gotta drive back to Maine tonight. Ugh. Boring! Not looking forward to that 2.5 hour drive. I’d rather sit here in my new chair. I guess I have no choice but to go back up there if I wanna play on […]

Wheee! I’m doing stuff!

I’m always so much more productive at night than I am during the day. I don’t get it. If I didn’t need sleep, I could just keep going and stay productive until the end of time…or something like that. Right now, I’m working on giving my stupid Lego web site a new design…so that it […]
