A new brain

I swapped out hard drives on alethe.net last night. I'd forgotten how badly I'd needed to do that. Oy oy oy! I'd been unable to do backups of NFG for a long time, now. Last successful one was back in October. I'd thought it was an overheating issue, but cpu never went high; still, I got a new power supply with more fans, and a spiffer cpu fan. That... didn't really help. My hard drive was making strange sounds. Then, postgresql started failing and restarting. Tracked that down to a single database, but couldn't really do anything about it. Or not much. I was worried about fixing it and having it just break again. Then I started getting read errors on /var/log. Oy oy oy! So I finally did the plunge, last night. Two and a bit hours, new (slightly larger) hard drive, and fixed the pg errors (had to roll a single table of the database back a month and a bit, but that's probably not losing anything as that table couldn't be accessed... so nothing could be added. hmm.)

anyway. yeah. server should be more stable now.

nfg backup is 760+ megs! oy fucking vey! [[that's compressed, folks. hell, I tried to run bzip2 around it and ADDED a meg]]

Working on adding a multipart/alternative filter to addtask@skwerms.org, so it doesn't just bounce those.

la la la.

and starting to get my hopes back up with globealive.com. silly? probably.

globealive.com seems like a cool concept
How much attention has it received? Will it some day come close to Friendster or LiveJournal?

It had funding two years ago. The funding was relatively misspent, and the business platform never solidified. I took it on after the funding was gone, but came against technical social issues (too much harassment all around), and some just flat-out technical issues (chat system wasn't 100%, and the clients not fully featured). I have a lot of work to do, still. Some day? Would be awesome. Who knows?
