This month, our “hobby” server took a big dump, and we said, “screw it, we need to install the ‘new’ server.” This “new” server is a few years old, but switching servers is such a huge pain in the ass that we avoided it.
Besides, the old server has been pretty reliable. We’ve had to replace the power supply, a hard drive, and memory, but… not bad for 10+ years. Fsck even fixed it up, but re-racking a heavy 2RU, decade+ year old server is a terrible idea.
I’ve got three new articles, and the first two are from this upgrade:
- How to use ntp to Set the Time and Date on Ubuntu – seems obvious, but there’s a gotcha to avoid.
- Vpopmail Courier Authdaemon authvchkpw – the start of a series about an obsolete application stack/cluster/horde.
- PHP realpath() not working, returns empty string – I committed a rookie mistake, misusing a function.
One new page is an aggregation of a series from a while back about fixing my personal computer:
- The Crashing Computer Series – Long notes about how I diagnosed and fixed my crashing personal computer (it was RAM). Don’t do what I did.
I’ll try to share one article I’ve read that’s tech/internet in each post.
- Inside the Pricey War to Influence Your Instagram Feed – Paris Martineau described the world of influencer product placements.
