Images….

 

So, last night, I was getting ready to go to sleep when I get an email from someone asking for support. The images on one of their Amazon sites had stopped working. I take a look and discover that it’s actually happened to all my sites as well.

I kick into problem solving mode and find the problem, Amazon changed the tag that they use for their images. A quick fix and then I upload it to all my Amazon sites, then update the script and post a fix on my forum for my users.

Long night right? That was only part of it.

I then get woken up around 1:00 am because the power went out. So I have to lie there waiting for the power to come on so I can set my alarm so that I don’t sleep in.

Finally comes on, only went out for 4 minutes, but felt a lot longer.

Anyway, will post more later. Gotta get coffee.

lazy and new toys.

 

I’m trying to post on here every 2 days, so far, it’s once a week, but I’ll get that down better shortly.

Last week, I spent some money and set up a nice new Linux box to act as a file server / backup server / CVS server / etc.

I got the case a few months ago, it’s a mini tower because I didn’t need a full size tower for this computer. Picked up a ASUS mini-ATX board and an AMD Sempron 2400 CPU, then l picked up 512 Megs of RAM and a 120 Gig hard drive plus a DVD drive to go with it. I’m planning on adding more hard drives later, but 120 was all I needed right now.

Finally, I installed Fedora Core 3 on it and set it up next to my Mac Mini. Actually, the box is sitting on top of the desk, and the Mac is sitting on top of the box. They look nice that way and still leaves me lost of desk space thanks to both computers being small.

I have a KVM switch running between the two which works nicely for switching between the two computers :)

Now that that’s done, I have to work out a decent backup script to backup my web server onto that computer.

I also bought a new 3 MegaPixel Digital CamCorder. My last Camcorder got stolen last year when my house got robbed so I’d been planning on buying a new for the past year and this new one was fully digital and looks pretty cool. It stores pictures and video both to SDRAM card so then I can use the laptop to convert the videos straight into DVDs.

On other news, I’ve been busy with different other projects lately. Getting some new scripts ready to sell and doing some client work.

Basically, business as usual.

New Stuff

 

So, over the weekend, I launched http://www.your-mac-store.com, which as the name says, is an Amazon store dedicated to Mac products.

I also added some RSS feeds to the site which are all related to Macs. I’m interested to see how it turns out.

Working on a few new scripts for my script site and also getting some new sites ready to launch.

Very Interesting

 

So, a few weeks ago I launched article-base.info, my new article site. Since creating it, I’ve been getting at least 10 article submissions a day and a ton of hits. I would have started up massive article sites sooner if I’d known they were gonna get so much traffic :)

But seriously, I have other plans for that site. I plan to set it up to offer articles via email so others can publish them on their sites and also sell a script that can work in conjunction with that.

Also working on a few other new sites and scripts as well for the next coming weeks.
