New (old) server

June 4, 2009

I got an IBM eServer xSeries 336 today. Ok, new isn’t really the right word for an IBM eServer xSeries 336 after all it’s more than three years old. None the less, it’s fine for running web and email services, which is what I am going to use it for. It’s annoyingly load, though and […]

Server HDDs died

March 27, 2009

The hard disk drives in my server died. I had to restore everything from a backup. Though, what annoys me about such things is, they always seem to happen right after I completed a large chunk of work, right before the scheduled backup is made. Backups my a**, they’re not any use.

My sites are down

March 5, 2009

Lycos Europe ended their webhosting services and it was necessary to change the service provider. Lycos suggested the provider STRATO, whereas all domains have been transferred there in late December 2008. However, STRATO does not provide any means to change the DNS server settings for the hostname aliases WWW and . so that it is […]

Lycos Europe went bankrupt

December 25, 2008

Lycos Europe went bankrupt some few weeks ago. Since they are my current DNS provider, I’ll be moving my domains to the hosting provider they suggested. This may cause all domains to be unavailable for 1 or two days. I hope that this gets resolved quickly and everything goes back to normal.

Apple Genius in iTunes is evil

October 28, 2008

There’s this new feature in iTunes 8. It’s called Genius. I tell you what: I don’t like it. I’m all for this genre based music categorizing and all that stuff. It’s a great concept, really. The thing with Genius is just, that it’s indexing all your music, no matter what. I don’t get the part […]

The OS of the Future or from 1984 to year 3000

October 24, 2008

I think the OS of the future thinks itself, we may have devices that recognize our thinking (electromagnetic wave detectors) and we can just IMAGINE what we might want to get done with our PCs and it just skips ahead and it’s done. The OS will probably be completely unrelated to hardware specs, everything will […]

Antivirus equals flawed system?

September 18, 2008

Or do I need an anti-virus to protect my computer. Some question might be, do I really need an anti-virus? Really? Well, my answer is no. You don’t need one, but it might keep you on the safer side of using a computer. That is, if you are not using your computer very often and […]

When your ISP is great, and when it is not

July 10, 2008

There are some times, where people make mistakes, mistakes that are great for some of us, and not so great for some others. One part of such mistakes includes mistakes in management. There is nothing bad if that mistake does not disturb anyone or invades someones privacy, or, you know, does bad things to people. […]

I hate harddisks

April 5, 2008

I don’t know why, but my harddisks always get damaged so easily. It only takes them about a year and then they’re almost trash. I always have to make this bunch of file recovery stuffs, I almost hate it. Somehow my storage devices did this to me again. Awesome harddisk crashes they are. Always those […]
