Server transfer almost done!

Dilbert

A lot happened today, but I want to keep this short so I can recreate it if need be; the server transfer is almost done and the last thing to be transfered is the shadowdev.com core. That pretty much means 85% of the files on the web server (including this subdomain). I can't wait till the transfer is done so this headache can be over.

I already vented to Keat, so the majority of my 'rant' is over. However, I'll sum it up for quick-reading purposes. I:
- added Hugh to the Advisor list on the Shadow Dev sites and sent out a short PR announcing his Advisor-ship;
- sent Dad the Alpaca information, only to find out that he already met the people and he's not pursuing that course of action;
- called Progress Energy and found out that the payment station didn't scan the account number on my check right and charged me 13.50 + my payment, but the operator was very friendly and helped me through the process, including paying online and avoiding the stupid $4.95 online processing fee;
- called the Auto shop and finally rescheduled my tire rod appointment that I had to postpone 2 weeks ago; added ALL of the email forwarding rules to the new server;
- finally figured out the stupid open_basedir issue on the new server and solved that (long story short: had to manually edit the new httpd.conf files one-by-one); semi-caught up on Eureka Season 4 (ep. 5-9, until 1-4 become available and/or episodes 10-20 air);
- manually updated ALL of the databases on the new server (the support guy was transferring them one-by-one, which was taking forever, so I exported the info out of phpMyAdmin on the old server and imported it on the new server; est. time of competition: 1 hr);
- found out that the article that The Mountaineer came to us for back at the beginning of the month is scheduled to be published on Wednesday (yay!);
- talked to Allan about the SMDC Expo event and got some of the 'minor' details out of the way;
- re-croned the new server to perform the "reminder" cron job every minute of every day (after I realized that the main php module was in a different location;
- loaded Seesmic on my laptop, which is easier to manage than TweetDeck, but I would like the integrated desktop feature for constant notifications of mentions and replies;
- stopped by the Waynesville Rec center and took a tour - really like it and may join in the next few months;
- browsed the "Internets" and found a lot of good stuff: duly tweeted
- and of course, did my standard stuff for every day (check reader, reply to email, etc);
- then came home and did some last-minute cleaning before the inspection tomorrow
....And that was my Monday.

Can't wait to see what Tuesday brings up!

Break's over - Back to Work

xkcd

I had a long day today, so this will be pretty short.

Not much really happened today. I mean, I woke up around 10 (again), packed up, drove home (uneventful), arrived home, had an issue with the power company (note to self: call them on monday), cleaned, picked up dinner, watched Ferris Beuller, and came to bed.

Although Friday night/Saturday morning, it seemed like I was inside a hurricane! I swear; the winds outside of Keat's parents' house were constantly blowing at around 25-35mph (estimate). It's hard to go to sleep when there is a constant "WHOOOOOOO" outside. It started around 10pm and (I think) dissipated around 5am-ish.

I checked on the server transfer, and it seems like a lot of the domains have been transfered so far, which is good. However, 2 databases weren't transfered (yet) and I found a new issue: "open_basedir restriction in effect". I've done some basic research to try and figure this out (and how to remedy it), but no avail yet. I sent an email off to the server support staff and hopefully they get back to me soon with follow-ups about the database issue(s) and the open_basedir issue.

Until tomorrow: G'night!
