Setup for easy server migrations and reliability

September 23, 2007

There has already been a long debate about hosting your own DNS servers and mail servers but I’ve found once again relying on Godaddy total DNS management and using GoDaddy e-mail forwarding has made my three migrations over the last year a breeze. So I suggest to everyone: Suggestion One: Don’t mix your host and […]

Installing Webmin on CentOS

August 27, 2007

One of the first things I did on my Media Tempe (dv) was install webmin because I’m a huge fan of easy it let’s you manage your web/server, e.g. web interface to quickly change config files or restart particular services without having to login through SSH. A more official description: Webmin is a web-based interface […]

Directory Redirect to Subdomain

June 8, 2007

For the longest time I was redirecting like this RewriteRule ^(forums.*)$ http://forums.example.com$1 [R=301,L] without noticing that it’s redirecting to a new subdomain but keeping the directory structure. Essentially redirecting this example to http://forums.example.com/forums/. Which is is bad if you intended to install at the subdomain’s root. It took some reading with the help of Google […]

Swamped

May 17, 2006

I’m just so swamped at work, so much that I can barely keep up with the few personal emails that I have on breaks because the day whizzes by so fast. Then my feeds go untouched and there’s just so much to read. Don’t get me wrong though I’m loving my new job. The days […]

Have a happy Friday the 13th

January 12, 2006

Howstuffworks “How Friday the 13th Works” Like many human beliefs, the fear of Friday the 13th (known as paraskevidekatriaphobia) isn’t exactly grounded in scientific logic. But the really strange thing is that most of the people who believe the day is unlucky offer no explanation at all, logical or illogical. As with most superstitions, people […]

Hack my open server

December 15, 2005

Since 1and1 is scamming me I thought I might as well publish all of the servers information so you guys can go to town. Do anything you want and hopefully they will finally cancel my service, after all my failed attempts. Have Fun! Debian 3.1 (stable/sarge) minimal system IP address 82.165.238.95 Server name u15180117.onlinehome-server.com Server […]

Nintendo Revolution

September 16, 2005

When I first saw this picture I thought, “is this the Sega CD for Nintendo”. But you know what, Nintendo knows exactly what they’re doing here; Innovation. The DS is an example; I always thought the DS was crap, one reason the dual screen/ touch screen. But until recently I never played with it, I […]
