The system will be inaccessible sometime later this week… Probably Friday October 5, 2001, and possibly Thursday October 4 as well. This downtime will allow us to move the physical server from the old location to the new location, get it set up, configured, and back up and running. We will try to minimize the downtime as much as possible, and we apologize for any inconvenience that this downtime may cause.
If you’re reading this, then DrewVogel.COM is back online after the physical server move! Things should all be working just fine, but if you notice anything strange, let me know.
I’ve re-done part of the system… Check out the Right-Side menu, scroll down and down to see headlines from Blue’s News and Digital Theatre. These replace some other headline sites that were of lesser interest.
Recently added, Andromeda (from the Other Options under the Main Menu bar on the side of the screen) is an MP3 jukebox.
I’ve got some of my favorite local and regional artists in there — take a listen if you wish, and support these artists if you can!
I added a bunch of new themes to the system today. Registered users can use themes once they’re logged into the system to modify the way the system looks to them. We’ve got about 25 themes to choose from here on DrewVogel.COM!
Since the price of memory is so cheap, I added 256 more megs to my development machine, giving it a total of 512 megs of memory. This machine (running the server) doesn’t need any more memory, but I may throw 256 more megs into it. Eventually, the server system will get a new 60-gig hard drive (about $200) to replace the existing 6-gig drive, and eliminate, hopefully for a long time, our storage headaches.
On October 18, 2001, we will be doing the main physical move of all our stuff to the new house. Since we’ve been working on the house, we averaged remodelling about 1 room per night. The only things left to be completed are the kitchen (we’re having some drywall repaired), and the actual putting away of things!
Bear with us as we continue this move-in process… Once we’re in, it will be smoother running on DrewVogel.COM!
There is a new poll on the site! Vote early, and often!
