I am closing down my photoblog Jalapeno Beach for a while. I have started to receive SPAM comments and have not been enjoying the Pixelpost software lately. (When I set a global setting to not allow comments, why do I still receive SPAM comments?) Admittedly I have not been keeping up with that site as much as I should, so I doubt that anyone will be shedding a tear over its temporary shuttering.
My NAS Experience Has Been Nasty
I am also declaring my network-attached storage (NAS) experiment a failure. After countless efforts to try and find a solution that will allow me to centralize all of my data onto a NAS drive and back it up weekly to USB drives hung off my iMac, I quit. I’ve ordered a new 500GB USB drive from Amazon that is due to arrive tomorrow. Getting all of my irreplaceable data to this new drive this weekend will be difficult with the many other tasks on my plate, but that’s the plan.
Once the data is “local” to the iMac I should be able to back the data up without failure.
Two Days After Christmas: Traffic Returns
There was a noticeable increase in morning-commute traffic this morning. Bummer, I was hoping that people would be taking the entire week off between Christmas and New Year’s.
I Really Need To Learn How To Consult My Calendar
Last night while going through my briefcase I came across my stack of hockey tickets. Fortunately, I found out that I have a ticket to tonight’s game in time to go. Unfortunately I also found out that I had a ticket to last Thursday’s game and I had no damn idea. Man, what the hell has happened to the organized me? The worst part of this story is that I have no one to blame but myself.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
