It’s been a tough one. It started last Saturday with a nasty sunburn earned by finishing up the garden area fencing. That was sore for a few days. Then Monday night while working on my web site it went down. Shortly afterwards a powerful, exciting thunderstorm blew through. I assumed they were related.
Tuesday came. Yes, 6/6/06. No, I don’t put anything into that date. Came in to work to a broken water main having flooded the basement. Later, my boss’s email went down while she was out of town. Then another employee’s email for a different reason. The I find out that my blog being down was just the symptom of my provider (and friend) having lost his server to a hard drive crash. I stopped by and helped him for a few hours. We decided to rebuild using Apache instead of WebStar.
The next days were a blur of working my regular day job, working on building a new server remotely, and occasionally seeing the visiting South Carolina Martins. Little sleep. Lots of stress. A handful of big, tough deadlines looming.
Well, it’s almost over. The day job deadlines have largely been met. The server is running (as you can see), though it’s not complete yet. I have a bunch of catch up work to do for past clients. Looks to be a weekend in front of a screen. But forecasts promise rain, so it won’t be bad to hang out inside.
