Haven't been writing much 'cos, well there hasn't been much to write about. In between working I've been trying to get all of this mess with the hosting situations sorted out and I'm sure you don't want to read on and on and on about that every day. I'm not sure that I'll be thoroughly pleased with Dreamhost but I think it is going to be the best fit for me in terms of value versus amenities. I can't stand their proprietary control panel. Ugggh. It drives me crazy. And the fact that there can only be ONE ftp account that can actually access the web-space area. But that touches on one thing I do like, however.
Gawd, I haven't had shell access to a Unix server since I was in college. I'm rusty, for sure, but it's starting to come back to me. Hell, I might even get the hankering to tangle with Emacs and s/open up/bust out a can o' whoop-ass of my command-line edit'n skeelz. I owe much gratitude to bustednut who graciously downloaded and then uploaded my photo galleries between the two servers for me, since doing such a task is hard when one is as mobile as I am.
Gotta be in Wichita in the morning, then Denver by Thursday. It is my intention to make it to Denver early enough tomorrow evening to have some coffee with spen_lit... it's always fun meeting new LJ friends!
Lastly, behind the cut lies an interesting picture, but I caution you to take pause, fearless Livejournaler, for the sight of my hairy leg lies beneath.
