Well, we (I) did it. Between childhood journals, mission, marriage, children, and breaking and fixing a bunch of things (including marriage and children), I have eeked out 1000 posts on this blog. It wasn’t easy.
There probably would have been many more posts, were it not for the catastrophic loss of self-hosted blogs, pictures, etc. I have broken and fixed this site hundreds of times.
In fact, for the last two days my blog has been down. VMWare unmercifully warned me that my coat-riding days were up. I would no longer be allowed to use their awesome product for free (there are some ways around this, but that’s another post.) So I switched to Xen XCP. I have 30 days to buy this product as well, but from what I read, this is a fluke and can be fixed with something that’s out on Xen’s site. So we’ll see about that…
But in the meantime, within the last hour, I finally got things running over here in Xen-world. It seems ok, so far. Just the usual issues with managing VM’s from a non-Windows box (we’ll see about that.)
Anyway, here’s to another 1000 posts. I wonder what this page will be served by at that time.
FYI: We’re still rocking FreeBSD in this home. 8.2. CentOS keeps calling, but I haven’t answered, yet…
