Lansing City Market rocks
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…Read more
Frustration running rampant today
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. …Read more
EM01b Websensor – revisited
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…Read more
Finally got my new Apple Keyboard
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…Read more

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…Read more
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…Read more
y2k7DST can kiss my @$$!
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…Read more
Am I in a freezer?
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…Read more
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…Read more
