the IT city, the I.T. Baby


A quick note about the server issues

This plug wants your baby to kiss itI’m a tech, therefor I run the stuff in-house. Over the past week I’ve had a drive crash due to overheating and a UPS blow out. Another drive was at the end of its life and was running extremely slowly, so it was time for a fix.

UPS battery will be coming in shortly, drive has been replaced with an SSD so hopefully we’re not going to have the heat and slowness issues any more. Boot up time from start of computer to theitbaby being live went from 13 minutes to about 1, so there’s that.

We’ll see how this plays out. It would be a shame to have to blow Maggie’s tuition on paying for a farmed server since these are pretty easy to manage and due to work I already have a static IP and a business connection.

Eh… the life of a technodad.
