Another software update, and again this new software takes about a half hour of downtime with each update.

I’ll do it tonight sometime so if you come here and it’s down, you’ll know why.



Another computer downtime in the lab tomorrow. Every 3 months now.


It’s frustrating. I have always coded my applications to update almost instantly. The technology they’ve chosen for this software (Discourse) is stupid, but the old tech (phpBB) had fallen out of development and had security risks so I felt I had to move to it.


All done. I didn’t time it but it was down for about 20 min.


That’s about what our downtime is too.


Doing another update. I usually do them in the middle of the night but I’m heading to Medellin soon so I want to get this out of the way.


All done. Easy this time.


The data center I’m using to host BBAD is doing a deal where we can double our disk space for no extra money so I’m going to do that. There’ll be some brief downtime over the coming evening.


I’ll go prepare a bun with a thin layer of low fat cheese.


That’s all I am allowed to eat these days, too. lol.

All done btw.




Another day, another upgrade. Site will be down for a few.


All done.


I don’t like the POM.


It’s a pink rose. You obviously hate gays.


My brother is gay. You obviously jump to conclusions.


It was a joke, Will. I know you aren’t homophobic.


I know. I still hate the POM.


I know that the longer I bitch about the shitty POM the longer Reg will keep it up. I just LOVE the POM. I love it. I hope it stays forever.


God, fine. What kind of pom would you prefer?
