Outage! Oh noes!

March 9, 2009 2:13 am by brian

The our main shared webserver was getting hit by a DDoS attack this morning. After a few minutes of slowness and a few minutes of unresponsiveness we got it all straightened out and got a firewall filter in place to block traffic.

For those of you who have not seen the adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s book “Choke”, see it now before it leaves the theaters. In my opinion it was a great adaptation that was true to the spirit and the tone of the book. Now, true, there is some humor in the movie and rather than making you feel disgusted at Victor they make you nervously laugh along, but this was a great add on to the story.

Plesk 8.6 Upgrade!!!!

September 19, 2008 4:37 pm by brian

Hey everybody. After our normal 45 days of letting the software developers work out some of the kinks, Plesk 8.6 is finally ready to rock. The upgrade will happen during one of the evenings this weekend (sorry for not being specific) after 1:00am EDT. It will probably last 3-4 hours if anything like the past upgrades so, if it’s down for a little bit in the middle of the night, it’s cool. We’re just making stuff better for you!

New Support Regime

August 15, 2008 6:39 pm by brian

Hey ya’ll we’re trying out some new support strategies that we think will work even better than our previous support.

At the moment, every single member of the logjamming staff will now be doing support. Gone are the days of “Brian touches the servers, Josh & Pat talk to the clients, Welch handles the billing, & Chris writes the code”. Now, you’ll get to talk to each and every one of us (though, we can’t promise you’ll talk to a specific someone). If you’ve got any questions about it, just drop us a line: or check out our support site:!

Domain Silliness

August 7, 2008 12:49 am by brian

So Chris and I talked a bit more tonight about domain registrations and how we’re going to add that feature to our billing software. Trick is, it’s going to be a lot of coding so it may be a but. We promise that we’re hauling ass trying to get stuff working asap.

So I still hate the iphone…

But the addition of the app store makes it slightly more bearable. Mainly I can say (after a year of hacking and various use) that I can’t wait for the blackberry bold.

CNBC Has Let Me Down

July 25, 2008 4:36 pm by brian

I admit it. I like CNBC.

I like to keep track of how the investments I made for my mother are going (she’s in retirement and with the recent passing of my father, we invested some money to ensure security in her golden years). I spent the better part of the day yesterday trying to figure out how I could get CNBC in the office free and/or cheap. First, I spent hours and hours searching trying to find an online feed. Nada (at least with non-windows media player support). Then it was trying to figure out ways to get it from my house to the office. Slingbox seemed a good choice at first. After all, thats exactly what it’s designed to do. No linux support though. In the end, I have a feeling I will be going the route of mythtv to give this a shot.

Back from the beach.

July 18, 2008 12:29 pm by brian

Well all, I’m back from the beach. South Carolina was a blast. I didn’t quite get my fill of boiled peanuts, but mini-golf (putt-putt), fireworks, & bowling (my highest game ever – 114) were a blast. Once i get things straight and catch up on Logjamming stuff I’ll post some photos!
