We got a new kickass server for LJ, but I can't get a damn operating system on it.
Can't get any CD but win2k to boot on it.... debian, progeny, redhat, and freebsd all either say "Boot failed" (the linuxes) or "Read error" (freebsd). they're all burned CDs that aren't working, but i tried a win2k CD burnt, and it works fine.
Looks like Blogger is having their share of technical issues lately. They have been experiencing problems since last Thursday and are just plain not working today. Their latest comments seem to indicate the problem is a database driver which had a connection limit they didn't tell 'em about. Basically, Blogger is down while they're waiting on an a new driver.
Not sure that this info will help anyone here, but it's probably a good idea to keep in mind how small oversights can ruin your day and to plan accordingly...
I'm just going to keep Mandrake on here..... it's not worth the effort trying to get anything else on it. I don't have time. Then I'd only have a billion problems getting the raid setup correctly. And I'd never be able to bug ASL's tech support, either.
nmap localhost .... heh: 15 ports listening. Time to clean this machine up.
2 new webservers from ASL are supposed to be coming today or tomorrow... those are easy to setup though... single IDE disks. Nothing tricky.
Update: started cleaning the mandrake system... "rpm -e XFree86". removing these packages would break dependencies. Yeah, great, just do it. Is there a --follow or --recurse option for rpm? Grrrrrrrrrrr.
I used the windows client to edit my friend groups today .... haven't done that in many many months. It totally fucked them up.
Could somebody diff the friends group code from an old client that I wrote with the current one and post it somewhere? (I don't have time.) I'm curious if Visions accidentally broke something, or if my code was flawed to begin with. I'm thinking it was Visions, because I remember designing it well and testing it a bunch. But I hope it is my fault... it's easier to be angry at myself than at somebody else.
Anyway, this is also a warning --- use the website to edit your friend groups for now.
Update: I looked at the diff between 1.3.8 and 1.4.7 ... didn't see anything that would have caused it to break. Damn. My fault. :-(
