Blogging again and other updates

My Why: I have been struggling with the purpose of this site, then I realized that the site is for me and not really anyone else.  I use it as a tool to look back and remember what I was doing in the past or as a public tracker to hold me accountable.   It is also a place for me to test new server configs and other web experiments. The Server:   I am still on Digital Ocean but I have…

New for 2016, lets start by shutting down a business.

As part of a challenge with a buddy of mine, we both agreed we needed some motivation and we challenged each other build and launch a business in 30 days. I am happy to say that I found a Niche, built a website and started selling a product in 30 days. What I learned is that I don’t enjoy retailing a physical product. I was selling a real physical product online.    While retailing one low margin product was just the start…

I dumped Google Fi

I dumped Google Fi

So after about 20 Days on FI i was over my 10 gigs of data.  the coverage was not really better than T-mobile in my area except in the train tunnel, but it was not worth the cost.   Canceling my account and porting my number back to Google voice was SUPER easy.  All wireless carries should be made to make it that easy.   If they even have a cost effective unlimited plan I would switch to Google Fi,…

The Alfa romeo 4C is just not worth it.

The Alfa romeo 4C is just not worth it.

Alfa spent a lot of money building the 4C.  And in turn they are going to charge you a lot of money for the privilege of owning one. In the US the first 500 will cost over $70,000.  Why the high price for a stripped out go kart? First is the name this is the first car with the Alfa name to be sold in the USA for ages. Second is this car is carbon fiber and it costs a…

Server down as mysql corrupted

Server down as mysql corrupted

So I have been struggling the last few days with keeping my sever up.   I thought I was simply running out of memory and I probably was.  Today nothing I did would work to bring it back up. In the end it seemed the mysql table was corrupted.  This was most likely caused by running out of memory. Well I upgraded my server with more memory and restored the site from a backup and all seems good now.
