Well, I do, but /scripts/easyapache is taking about, oh, five times longer to do its thing than it ever has before. This should have run in 10-15 minutes, worst-case. My body is telling me to go to sleep, but my brain doesn’t want this Apache script to hork and take the server down until morning. Oh well, it gives me time to work on laundry, right? Right.
The final Blogathon tally was $1,914. Thanks to all who sponsored, who peppered me with comments, and who otherwise supported me. It was beyond my wildest dreams, and when I told Derek about it on Monday night, he did a double-take. “That was totally worth wrecking your whole weekend!” I just laughed. I really enjoyed this year, and it’s disturbing how I felt normal the next day and how I’ve really felt fine the rest of the week. [I mean, I'm tired tonight, but there are many, mostly stress-related, reasons for that.]
Still working on my email setup; had time tonight to sit down with FM’s FAQ and figure out what I needed to do first. They’re crunching on my DNS resolution request, and then I’ll do the DNS switch on my end. My only concern at this point is going to be on-server incoming mail, because I doubt that it goes all the way out to the DNS box at my hosting provider only to then come back onto the box [although I could probably read full headers and know that]. By the time I get FM up and running, I’ll be terribly behind on getting to my email backlog—I come home to 30 or more new messages every day, and after I file and delete the stuff I don’t need to respond to, I still have enough to get back to on a week where I’m already very time-limited at night that I just don’t have the energy for it all. That’s a dynamically unstable place to be, but there I am, at least until the weekend. Of course, I’m going out of town for the weekend, but at least my folks are on DSL and have the wireless router I installed last time, so I can do some late-night email-fu, assuming that I can stay awake.
Yes, I’m quite rambly, but come on … this is me. When is this ever new?
