Back from Nevada

December 26, 2007 9:34 pm by brian

I’m back. The other boys aren’t, but we’re still here for you. I’m going to be doing some server upgrades the next few evenings so if things get wonky, that may be why.

Merry X-Mas.

Santy Claws

In Nevada

December 22, 2007 3:30 pm by brian

We’re away all over the place right now on vacations. Josh in North Dakota, Pat’s on tour down to florida with Sick Fix, Chris is in New Jersey, and I’m in Nevada. We’re still doing support and all that jazz. Just wanted to keep everyone updated!

Oh no! Drive Failure!

December 18, 2007 1:02 pm by brian

It’s not that bad. Our main linux webserver had a drive failure, but thanks to our fancy hardware based RAID array, it emailed us. I scrambled over to circuit city, bought a brand new drive and repaired the array & now everythings good as new!

Upcoming DNS Changes

December 7, 2007 9:58 am by brian

To support one of the friendly organizations we work with (Democracy In Action) I’m writing a SOAP interface to our DNS system. I just wanted to toot our horn a bit and let everybody know that we do custom development as well as web hosting. Check it out!

When toothpaste is outlawed…

November 30, 2007 9:18 am by brian

So I’m going to be traveling to visit my family in Nevada around X-Mas. The biggest thing that annoys me about the post 9/11 world we live in: toothpaste.

So I admit it. After years of dealing with Tom’s of Maine (and similar brands after ToM was bought out by Colgate, i still have a stash of ‘New old stock’. Good thing toothpaste doesn’t go bad… I hope) I’ve gotten to like chalky, mint flavor, hippy toothpaste. The big bumout? I can only buy my preferred brand in 8oz tubes. This far exceeds the Transportation Security Administration’s “3-1-1″ rule. What am I to do? I can always buy a tube when I get out there, assuming there is some place in rural Nevada which caters to the hippy in us all. Or I could work a little DIY magic…

Materials:

  • Big tube of toothpaste
  • Little tube(s) of toothpaste
  • Extra cap for the big tube
  • Drill
  • Drillbit

Step 1

Gather your materials and drill a hole in the extra cap.
Toothpaste 1

Step 2

Put the extra cap on the small tube backwards. Then screw this contraption onto the big tube.

Toothpaste 2

Step 3

Gently squeeze the big tube while tightly holding the small tube against the larger. This will keep you from making a mess.

Step 4

Wash the caps and cleanup, you’re done! Toothpaste tubes which conform to the 3-1-1 rule.

Storage storage storage!

November 15, 2007 1:33 am by brian

So it looks like we’re going to be rolling out our new storage array soon. I’m going to be buying the hardware this week. It’s going to be a 2TB monster which we’re setting up to expand all the way to 14TB. If that doesn’t keep our backups in good working order, ain’t nothing going to keep our backups in good working order!

Demo videos coming soon.

November 8, 2007 5:41 pm by brian

I’m in the process of getting some totally sweet instructional flash videos. It’s not that we don’t enjoy corresponding with y’all… it’s just that we’d rather have it be on happier circumstances, like “check out this new blog post!” rather than “i can’t figure out how to setup thunderbird… HELP!.” Keep your eye out, they should be linked in the Support Knowledgebase some time tomorrow or Monday.
