Today our WDTPRS inner geek was given its freedom.
First, we are now on yet another server… newer… faster. The blog should be much snappier now and some problems like the comment "stuttering" should be all but history.
Second, we are creating a clone. Yes, I know Catholics and all good people don’t like cloning. But this is a good clone. This is a clone of the blog living in a secret place where many updates and modifications will be made. When satisfaction is attained: click. It will live.
Third, I installed on the Sabine Network a groovy network power switch with a web interface. So, if there are problems with any of my equipment due to the all to frequent power fluctuations way out here in the Sabine boonies, I no longer will need to call and beg someone to go into my house and unplug or reboot some of my key items… such as the SlingBox (may its creators be praised and rewarded). I can now remotely turn power on and off and even send a command to the router’s power socket to switch itself off, wait x seconds and then power back up. Very cool.
This will explain the problems with accessing the blog today.
Thanks for your patience.
