The Cost of Running a PC 24 Hours a Day

Monday, January 28th, 2008

I saw an interesting question over at slashdot on the topic of how many companies actually had their employees power down their PC’s overnight. The site in question had about 8000 PCs about half of which stayed powered on overnight. There’s a lot of talk these days about “going green”. I’ve always been interested in [...]

Another Status report and upcoming articles

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

Everything seems to be back to normal now after the server upgrade and the migration of one of the “child” domains out of the account. I do have several other “child” domains that will be migrating off of this server in the near future, so we may have a few blips, but overall I’ve got [...]

The South Carolina Genealogy Site is the first of my other sites I’m farming out to another server, so at the moment while dns settles that is redirecting here. Sorry for the inconvenience if you’re looking for SC Genealogy content. It will be back up soon. Update as of 9PM all has settled with the [...]

Experiencing some turbulence

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

I knew for some time that a server upgrade at my hosting provider was coming – they were essentially upgrading the underlaying software. (New versions of apache/php/etc. the entire system.)

AT&T rbl block inquiry site

Monday, January 21st, 2008

First, I guess I should give a primer, what’s an RBL? RBL stands for Realtime Black List (or Realtime Block List depending on who you talk to.) The idea is there are machines that either 1) have no business DIRECTLY trying to deliver a mail message to a legitimate mail server or 2) are known [...]

Back into a Routine

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

I think things are settling back to where I’ll be doing some more routine posting here. I know I’ve been sporadic for the last several months, but the truth is that at one point I had poured so much time into my sites I really burnt out on them. Now I’m taking a new approach [...]

Print spool problem after windows update

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

It’s been a while since I’ve had an “on-topic” post here, but as you might imagine quite a bit has been going on. I had this peculiar problem reported to me in the last week about print spool issues with certain models of printers following the official windows update day.    Send article as PDF [...]

Secrets of Making money online – bux.to

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

I know, you’ve seen the ads – make $6000 a week in your spare time!! Make money doing the things you do ANYWAY, like reading email, browsing the web. The last week or so as things have been slow (and technically I was still “on vacation” until the 3rd of January). I had plenty of [...]
