Everything has been replaced. Firewall rebuilt, new server, loadsa memory.
If the fornicating piece of equipment fails again it can fornicating go fornicate itself.
I constructed a new fine and shiny server, and the motherboard failed immediately. It took my supplier two working days, plus a weekend, to get me a replacement…
The bunnies really weren’t happy – [...]
Posts under ‘Cats himself’
To all concerned, and even to those who don’t give a toss…
Damn, but I am sorry the site was down.
While I was away the site collapsed, and I couldn’t get in to check the problem. When I finally got my hands on it all, after I got back, I found that the router was dead, [...]
It is a few days since I left, last Monday in fact, but I had no Internet access. It is not that the ship doesn’t provide internet services, but at between 33 cents per minute, provided I buy 600 minutes in advance, and 79 cents if I don’t, it has the be damned important before [...]
This weekend I am off for a while.
I have a milestone birthday coming up, and no, I am not telling which milestone, and I have been given a gift of a five week cruise on board Sea Princess.
The itinerary is:
Sydney, Nuku’alofa, Honolulu, Kaui, Maui, Kona, Hilo, Papeete, Moorea, Raiatea, Bora Bora, Pago Pago, Suva, Noumea.
I have just had one of the more pleasant weekends for a year or more…
The Australian Taxpayers Alliance (who they? Ed.) held what they hope will be the first, of many, Friedman Conferences in Sydney and I went to listen in.
Train to Sydney, slept in a pretty grungy backpackers, and spent the time talking.
Saturday night [...]
You may have heard about the weather we bin gettin here on the Pacific coast of Australia, but, then again, you may not. Whatever.
Yesterday we had a blackout. Whether it was down to the weather I don’t know, but there have been a few since the beginning of the year.
Anyway, this wasn’t a long blackout, [...]
I got me a Chrissy pressie.
I put up a post a short time back, telling you all of my love for Thomas Grays Ode on the Death of a Favorite Cat Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes.
Well, that posting led me back to this one, from some years earlier, and in turn I read this [...]
Cats moved to a new ISP today, and from ADSL to ADSL2.
The new ISP didn’t tell me it was happening this morning.
The replacement preconfigured modem/router, which I didn’t need but was happy to take, not only hasn’t arrived, but they tell me today that it is out of stock…
I hadn’t been sent the new user [...]
RAB’s posting below, with it’s prominent promotion of scrumpy, reminds me of the first time I ever had the pleasure of scoffing the stuff.
It was in about 1981, I was newly arrived in England and was still in sightseeing mode. One Sunday afternoon I went up to the British Museum to have a captains, and [...]
And a new beginning.
The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things.
Well, I suspect I have spoken of shoes and ships, and cabbages and kings, but I am damned if I can think of any occasion when I discussed sealing wax. I mean, why would I?
Ok, like all evil colonialists over the [...]
That makes me calling Ian B a cunt (which he is) into the start of WWI!
No, that was a border skirmish.
Now, I will agree that it was inappropriate for Ian to call your wife an idiot, but don’t forget this is an abuse site, not least through your own contribution, and has been for a [...]
I need some information about social networking software. Now, I will admit to having a facebook page, but whenever I have cause to access it I am hit with a feeling of the most intense ennui, and the words ‘why, why, WHY’ become a refrain running through my mind.
Seriously, I just can’t see the point.
Right, I want information.
I have been presented with a requirement. I need to be able to drive a circular array of twenty hi def screens, each screen being a segment of a single 360 degree panoramic video display.
A level of redundancy would be useful. If there were some way to set up failover from one [...]
Just to let you all know, and warn you,
For those who don’t know, or care, the Cats server is a Windows Server 2003 computer running multiple FreeBSD virtual machines as web servers.
Last week I read a review on registry cleaners at Techrepublic, and one that received honourable mention was COMODO System Cleaner. Well, the [...]
Look, I don’t live in London any more, and here on Queensland’s sunny Gold Coast we don’t tend to be privy to all the little details of life in the Great Wen.
Now, answer me this:
If the routemasters are gone, the bendy’s ditto, and the new Borismasters are still to come into service then…….roll of drums……… [...]
