It's always something - and then there's the weather

February 5, 2021

So it's the tech week from - er - heck here. Beyond the normal pile of slightly-unexpected tech issues, at the moment our VPS supplier tells us they're having some internet stability into our data center. I've noticed a few periods when we've dropped off the web, which has made life interesting. Add that to the fact that I had to fix 2 different laptops this week, power outages in the area, and a quick drop into the deep freeze starting tonight, it's been quite a week.

Oops again

February 2, 2021

Well, it's been a week of surprises. I've been trying to shape up some of the behavior of the web site in preparation for doing a complete site upgrade and tuning the server performance. In the process, I managed to forget that I'd left the server in an odd mode while I was debugging something, and the upshot is that this morning it completely ran itself out of memory. The technical term in the system administration for this is "Httpd faw down go boom".

December 29, 2020

Yes, it's late for Festivus - but the airing of the grievances happens all year long. For a change I'm going to write about them. Don't worry, some time between now and New Years I'll talk about the things in 2020 that I am happy about.

Thankful

WKRP Turkey Drop

November 26, 2020

This Thanksgiving I am, despite the very odd year we have all had, thankful. I'm still here. I have two daughters who came into my life in a non-traditional way, and we're still a family, though we are half a country apart today. Next year for sure. Still, I cannot help but think of the many chairs at the Thanksgiving table that are empty today, some of them permanently.

Live Streaming of School Board meetings to be suspended

Many of our readers have been following the live streams of the Menomonie School Board meetings. We've been providing this live stream because we think that schools are important to the public, and because the school board is one of the very few government entities that has been meeting in person rather than virtually since the pandemic started.

Normal in this case is referring to the website, not to anything else. Like many of you, I stayed up late last night - just long enough to hear the President of the United States threaten democracy. And to see that the election is going to be with us for some time in the future. I intended to leave the site in election mode until the national elections seemed clear, but that is clearly far off in the future, and there are other things to talk about in the interim.
