I'm back... and nothing blew up this time!

Had a fun time, and enjoyed the cool air... I've been back in Houston 2 hours now, and already spent 2/3 of it sweating like a pig. I so hate this city.

Taking off on Sunday to spend a week camping in Colorado. I'll be offline for most of that, so any requests will have to wait until I get back. I cannot WAIT to escape this heat though. Going from 103F here to overnight lows around 38F. (That's basically 40C to 4C.) Awesome! Also going to try to climb Mt. Elbert which is the highest peak in Colorado, and the second highest in the continental US.

So, I've been waiting months to post th 1,000th topic on these forums. Yes, it's a sign of just how slow things really are that it's taken months just to get a few new topics. On the other hand, The Aquabats have a new album out.

If that doesn't justify the 1,000th topic, I don't know what does!

(And yes, The Legend Is True!)

Just found this... foxes jumping on a trampoline.

Announcements / Upgrades
« on: June 12, 2011, 09:03:59 am »
Lots of upgrades this time around. The new forum software is an obvious one (go check it out), but I've also upgrade a lot of the backend software. I'm also switching to a slightly different setup for apache as well. As usual, let me know if you run into problems.

Cool. Always fun to play with automated stuff like that, just to see what you get.

Homebuilt CNC Machines... DO WANT!

I spent a couple hours looking around at these things. I'd wanted a 3D printer for a long time, but the homebuilt ones just aren't extremely precise, and the materials are kinda weak usually. This though, even built out of plywood, it's amazingly accurate and can basically let you carve/cut anything you can get into a computer, and materials like plastic, wood, and metal are just as strong and useful as anything you'd get from a manufacturing plant. Of course, I'd probably need a full-on shop to go with one of these!

I think I'm already friends with both of you on Steam, but for anyone else, it's Xepher42, just like for chat.

Apache was down for most of the day, as I didn't get home from work until just now. It appears the monthly log rotation didn't properly restart things after it finished this morning. I've fixed it and things are now back up and running. Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you to all of you that sent me messages to let me know.

EDIT: I've set up server monitoring on my phone now. Hopefully that'll help me catch things a lot quicker next time there's a problem.

Oh wow...

So there were suggested videos after that, and I clicked things...

And kept clicking.
And clicking.
And clicking...

I've now spent the past two hours watching My Little Pony videos. Who am I supposed to see to turn in my Man Card again?

So I'm sick of only posting to facebook, and thinking "I want to share awesome stuff..." Then it occured to me, I have a website with it's own forum!

So here's some cool things I think everyone should see.

Who else has stuff we should see? Especially stuff that hasn't been linked a million times on other sites? I swear, the first person to mention raptor rapture gets a special face-punch. :-P

Nikon D80, ISO 100, Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens at 18mm, F/8.0, 5.3s exposure.

The exposure was just freehand, manually opening and closing the shutter between strikes.

Yeah, I'm sorry... but it doesn't really fit. While I respect the purpose your working towards, the focus here is on art and creative output. Best of luck to you though!

Announcements / Server Updates... Especially Email
« on: April 08, 2011, 10:42:39 am »
I've been updating the server software again, and will be doing more upgrades tomorrow as well. The main upgrade so far is the mail system. I've upgraded both the mailserver itself, and the spam filtering system. Part of this involved retraining everyone's spam filters from the cached training they'd done before. I've tested several times with both of my accounts, and everything appears to be working, but please let me know if you find that any problems occur, especially when moving messages between folders (since that's when training occurs.) Also note that the mailserver was down for several hours while I did this, so some mail may be delayed for a few hours.

Tomorrow I'll be doing some (hopefully minor) updates to apache and PHP. Nothing like the major update that caused all the problems before, so it shouldn't be a big deal.
