Blog upgrades – Now with a layer of Varnish

Continuing on my latest theme of blog upgrades – I just got a new server set up for myself over here at the new MRX datacenter, and got my blog transitioned over to it. If you’re reading this post, then likely you’ve gotten the new DNS. If you hit my blog from twitter and get [&hel[...]

Semi-quick update

So, I just added OpenID support to my blog, which I hope will encourage more people to comment. I fixed the stupid problem I was having with tank by re-installing Ubuntu.  Since I no longer have any optical bays, I had to actually set up Ubuntu over a netboot install, which was kind of cool.  [&he[...]

Rogers once again drops the ball

Well, I’ve seen a few new comments come in to my blog about Rogers’ craptastic billing department, so I figured I’d follow that one up with another small rant about Rogers’ services. So, on July 4th, I got a letter in the mail from Rogers, seems they love sending out mail, as[...]

Lost in transit…

I really have to stop saying I’m back and just start writing to my blog again… decided I didn’t like the theme I had going and so I changed it.  I just grabbed a stock template and changed the logo, but I’m hoping to slowly modify it over time and make it a little better. [&[...]

Quitting an addiction

So, its been a long time coming, but I think I’ve finally got my fill of WoW (World of Warcraft). A few weeks ago I decided that I was finished and that I’d just let my account run out. As of today, it has now expired and I believe I’m now free of an addiction. […][...]

So, I’ve been insanely busy the last few weeks, and haven’t taken any time out of my busy schedule to write anything of interest here. I’ve been really busy with work and life, but I won’t bore you with the details of that… I will however, take a few seconds to introduc[...]

Guelph Transit thinks busses are too convenient

Very recently i have come to a shocking conclusion about Guelph's supposedly acclaimed transit system. As a pre-cursor to this whole rant, I would just like to state that these are my own experiences, however, they are mirrored by others that I know.

Toronto Zoo

So, I haven’t been to the zoo for quite a while, many years in fact. Tania and I, this past week, decided to take Tania’s niece to the Toronto Zoo and we had a blast. She’s such a little cutie and so smart. I also enjoyed walking around for the day, reminded me a lot […][...]

Finished School

So, last night at 7:45pm, I completed the last exam I will ever have to write for school. 100 multiple choice questions, 45 minutes and I’m now finished my degree. I can honestly say that it feels like a great weight has been lifted, and I’m finally done school. All I need to do now [&he[...]
