Rough Weekend

Pretty crazy weekend if you ask me.

Friday night JR took a hit to it\’s primary server in the form of an email attack. They didn\’t take down the server, which was good, but they did managed to get about 10,000 emails out to AOL customers. Hopefully it\’s been dealt with and doesn\’t happen again.

Saturday was a day of nonstop shopping and meetings. Richard, Amber and I hit up National Camera Exchange and got outselves a tripod for the Wedding on saturday. We also hit up Home Depot and built our own stabilizer. All in all, a pretty cool deal if you ask me.

Sunday was a long long day. The early morning (and I do mean early) was spent doing server maintence at Implex. All in all, it went… OK. The server itself (as a whole) was down for just under an hour while they made upgrades to the electrical lines. The webserver was down for only about 1 minute after that, but one of the 2 name servers came up incorrectly (the old one came up). That said, 50% of you were not able to get to this site for about 10 hours. For some people, longer… The email server came up again as always and didn\’t a fine job receiving emails, but we still had an issue with getting them from the webmail or via pop. Some of them carried into today, but I believe them to all be resolved.

The afternoon was spent doing some clothes shopping and watching Nascar. The Auction Draft has in fact ended with Jeff and Kenesth being my primary 2 now. It\’s going to be an interesting year. I will spare you all the details of the auction and how it went down, because I\’m sure they will somehow surface on this blog at a later date.

Take all that into account, and if you were counting, You might have counted that I went to and from Minneapolis 3 times. Add in today, that\’s 4. Lots of mileage.

Tonight, assuming I can get most of what I need to get done today, all will be good.

    Thanks for keeping the server up and running in tip-top condition! I could never own a server.

    I checked my website at 8:30 sunday morning, and it wasn't working. But at least you were trying. 😉 j/k man. I don't care. I really do appreciate everything you do. Have a great Valentine's Day, remember… it isn't .all. pain.

    I went to a taping of a college variety show tonight, "Irene on TV". (Irene is a good friend and in Elizabeth's soroity) Anyway, to the point, our camera was better than all the cameras they had.

    Would Justin buy anything less than the best?

    I don't think Justin would buy anything less than the very very very best. And it must be some camera – I remember the webpage on it vaguely, but hey we should see that again … maybe an "about our camera" post. woo!
