Just a brief update… I’ve upgraded the system’s memory to 256 megabytes. This should improve caching and system response time.
Remember, though, that this system is using a DNS proxy (TZO.com) for domain name recognition. Sometimes, TZO’s servers can be a tad slow, which is the reason for the occasional slowdown in hitting this system the first time in a session. Once you’ve contacted the system, subsequent hits should be faster.
I updated the gallery today to re-order some of the pictures and put captions on almost everything. I also integrated the Gallery into the SMACK IT website.
On 05-September-2001, I added an internal ATAPI ZIP drive to the system. Users won’t notice this addition too much, since it is used mainly for system backups. I also wrote a script that automagically backs up the entire system, including dumping the tables, to the ZIP drive.
What a great weekend we had here in Cincinnati!
This was the weekend of the annual Over The Rhine Christmas show at the Taft Theatre, and there were many festivities that went along with the show.
Every December, the music fans in Cincinnati get a very special treat. Cincinnati-based Over The Rhine present their Christmas concert at the Taft Theatre.
This year’s show featured two guest acts. Erin McKeown and Buddy & Julie Miller were openers. Over The Rhine played for about 115 minutes, including encores.
After the show, a group of Over The Rhine fans (many of whom flew in from around the country to attend this show) went to Pizzaria Uno’s for a late-night dinner and much merriment.
On Saturday morning, I hosted an informal Brunch at our new house, complete with excellent food and live music.
The whole weekend was a great time.
We just had Corian installed at Chez Vogel, and it is awesome. Heck, even the installation is pretty amazing!
