First off, the wheels of updating were in motion. However, I noticed that Tripod has been messing around with server settings since all of my Perl scripts aren’t working. Those scripts are responsible for my file downloads. I’ll be looking into it, that’s for sure.
Of course, I’ve been watching the terrorist attacks and their reprocussions on TV and the web. It’s alerted me to take security a little more seriously. In other words, I’m actually examining my firewall logs now. The CodeRed2 worm has hit the Rogers@Home network pretty hard. I’ve managed to hack about ten people so far, whose computers have been attacking mine. Hacking, not cracking. I don’t actually harm any data on their systems. I just find out who they are by perusing their hard disk and then I alert them. No harm done. Actually, I wish some Rogers@Home network guys would do the same.
More to come…
Long time, no update. This I know. My family and Dena’s were visiting us for a two week stretch in August. At the end of the month some of Dena’s friends from university came to vist, also. So now it’s September and the place is all ours again. Obviously during the time that company was here, I didn’t update this site.
I have a grand plan. By Christmas, this entire site should be completed. It’s not really a guarantee or a guaran-damn-tee, for that matter. It’s more of a goal. If I do it; kewl. If I don’t, don’t shoot me. We’ll see how it goes. This weekend is screwed since I have to wipe the ol’ drives and start over. Installing Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 was a big mistake. I normally wait for a service pack or update to be released before using any Microsoft product. IE6 screwed up my system so that Windows Explorer would crash every time it was launched. I’ll be cursing Micro$oft all weekend.
