Secure Adium IM Logs

Maybe like me, you’re lucky enough to be able to use a Mac at work. And maybe you’ve been lucky enough to convince your boss to use some type of IM protocol like Jabber so they don’t have send those two word emails that when you read makes your head go, what the?! Then you fire off a reply only to wait 5 hours to get any type of clarification, giving you only 15 minutes to do a job that you should have had all day to do (well, actually, you still get those emails, but that’s besides the point).

I Rubbed Cheetah Blood On My Server

So in case you couldn’t tell by the 500x speed increase around here, I’ve finally moved Joelika.com over to the new VPS server on SLHost, and let me tell you, I am extremely happy with the switch. It doesn’t pain me to come to my own site anymore (I can only imagine the curses you were calling down from me over the internet)! Everything actually loads, I don’t get weird Lost Server Connections in Safari, and hopefully I won’t have 264 unreachable URLs in Google Webmaster Tools anymore! So again Netfirms, it was a fun 7 year ride or so (except that past year), but I’m glad I made the switch and I love the increased flexibility of the VPS.

Hello Server

Just a quick note today about a website upgrade that will be happening soon. Laure Axiom Design Works and I have bought our own VPS over at SLHost the other day, so I’ll be officially transferring off Netfirms before November. Netfirms, it’s been a good 7 year ride, but I just can’t stand the slow MySQL servers and your weird mod_rewrite abnormalities. So I’m taking my ball and going home… well, not really, but you get the idea.

Happy Spring Roll

Happy spring everyone! Yes, I am quite aware that it has been “officially” spring for quite some time, but for those of us in Pittsburgh, it is finally just really starting. That’s right, it isn’t -35º F anymore (even though it was like 39º F this morning), trees are becoming green, kids are outside playing sports… Ah! It’s just fantastic. That, and it’s been sunny for like the past week, which never happens out here. So for those of you sitting inside and playing video games (which I normally would heartily endorse), get out there and enjoy it before it’s 105º F and your face melts.
