Hard Drive Crash

Sunday, July 28th, 2002

Kaboom! The main 4 GB hard drive in this server decided it would be rather cute to explode and take everything down with it. After a wasted weekend all the services this box provides are now back on-line. However all data, including web sites and email access, for the moment is lost. When I have more time to play I’ll look into what I can recover. In the mean time I will begin my task to write “backups are good idea.” one hundred times.

More Server Upgrades

Wednesday, July 17th, 2002

Had a get together with a few ex-OA groupies yesterday. Drank way too much… My head hurts… In spite of my massive hang over I managed to do some more upgrades to my here network. My main workstation has been upgraded to a faster 20 GB Maxtor hard drive and the 20 GB from it has been moved to this machine. Now this machine has a whole lot more breathing room for sharing my MP3’s and videos across the network. Very nice.

OA Group Inc. Folds

Monday, July 15th, 2002

OA Group Inc. officially folded today. Only four days before my resignation date. It is unclear as of yet if I will get my last pay check or not (including due vacation pay). Starting Monday I’m starting at Triton Networking, my new employer; this will be a combination sales / tech job. Until then, I’ve got some time off to enjoy.
