Oh well… there is always next year…


Lansing City Market rocks

Posted by gryphn on October 4, 2008 in Food & Drink, Life, Work |

There is one staple in my life, The Lansing City Market. The people there are the ones that you can always count on to know what you need and are always willing to help you out. I’m a member of ELFCO (East Lansing Food Co-Op), but since they opened their stand at the City Market […]


Frustration running rampant today

Posted by gryphn on September 12, 2008 in Work |

First my update of Apache for the webserver hosed the ColdFusion installation, then trying to follow the update procedure for ColdFusion’s Apache connector was less than successful.  Then to top it all off the auth program that worked in the Dev environ is throwing all kinds of errors at me in production.  yay.  Just yay.  […]


EM01b Websensor – revisited

Posted by gryphn on November 12, 2007 in Technology, Work |

I’m still not 100% pleased with this little thing. It seems to work most of the time, but I’m still seeing random points where it just won’t talk to the Nagios server. If there was a pattern that’d be one thing I could track down the cause. I know it has to be there, but […]


Finally got my new Apple Keyboard

Posted by gryphn on September 21, 2007 in Technology, Work |

w00t! I ordered it back on August 20th and just got it Monday. I didn’t think I’d like it the first day I was using it, but its definitely grown on me. Everyone who comes in is really envious of it too, which makes it both worth the wait and very pleasing on a ‘Ha […]


EM01b Websensor

Posted by gryphn on August 15, 2007 in Technology, Work |

I got an EM01b Websensor the other day so we could monitor the environmental conditions for the server room. Over all the device seems pretty cool. I do tend to have some connection issues with it, but that could just be because of network traffic, but who knows. I had to quit having Nagios ping […]


y2k7DST update

Posted by gryphn on March 9, 2007 in Work |

So with only today to go in the work week before Daylight Savings Time, we hope that everyone has applied the patches and that all is well and right with the world. Though now that I’ve hear that the call volume for Microsoft is up 66%, I’m thinking probably not. Fortunately, at work we were […]


y2k7DST can kiss my @$$!

Posted by gryphn on February 22, 2007 in Technology, Work |

I’d like to strangle the people who voted for the change in daylight savings time. Nothing like causing another Y2K-esque time for technology professionals. Great job! Already we’re seeing swaths of people with calendar data out of sync with reality. My brain hurts trying to think of all the ways that this could possibly turn […]


Am I in a freezer?

Posted by gryphn on January 19, 2007 in Life, Work |

Ok, so I like winter. Not the uber cold frozen brass bra part, but the snow and fun that comes with snow. The one thing that really throws me though, is when I come into my office and half of it is cozy but yet the other half, by the window, might as well be […]


servers suck

Posted by gryphn on January 9, 2007 in Work |

Sometimes I just hate Linux, but then I think about it and say to myself… ‘Well it could be windows…’. Not that Windows servers don’t have their place. For the web however, the only way to go, well in my opinion anyway, is Linux or Unix. There is just too much overhead for Windows and […]
