Its been a long time since my last post so I’d thought I’d startup again.
Life has been busy! Its been a great year so far. My wife and I are building a new home here in Edmonton which we are excited about and drive by almost everyday to take photos of the build process. They just finished the roof last week and now we have windows and doors! Its been a exciting process and we are looking forward to moving in later this year in late Nov. or early Dec.
Wind chill warning today in Edmonton with the current temperature with wind chill of -43!!
Hi everyone! I know its been a while since i last posted I hope everyone is having a great new year so far! I’ve been investigating the ever popular cpanel to see if I can integrate it into Watt Networks website hosting environment. I haven’t figured it all out yet but I got DNS and SQL working with our cluster. I’m just having trouble connecting cPanel Apache to my replicated web sever cluster.
We got more snow again today here in Edmonton as if we didn’t have enough and to top it off tomorrow is going to be -28 C! (without windchill)
Well off to bed.
Merry Christmas everyone!! Hope you all have a wonderful day filled with love and presents.
I hope everyone is ready for Christmas this year! Or were you one of those people who thought the world was going to end on the 21st and didn’t buy any gifts?
Anyways Merry Christmas everyone!
Finally finished my new Highly Available (HA) MySQL cluster with both load balancing and failover!
One of the best free email services for small startup businesses and individuals wanting to use custom domain names has now been discontinued for any new sign-ups to make way for Google’s paid services.

Apple’s New iMac looks like something from the future so I guess you could say the future is now!…. or this December just in time for Christmas!. Check them out! http://www.apple.com/ca/imac/
Finally! Thanks giving weekend is here. The weather in Edmonton is getting colder, this morning was -2C! I’ll need to add that handy remote car starter back onto my key chain soon. I think I actually saw it snow for a few minutes the other day but I’m refusing to admit happened and saying it was Hale.
A computer update, I did go back to the data center and replace all the really long power and network cables on the servers! and in case your wondering why I never posted photos of the facility is its because we are not aloud to take video or photos of the location for security reasons.
Normally on long weekends I’m either camping or have some big computer project planned but this weekend is just going to be relaxing at home with Sarah and teaching her how to use WordPress.
Hope you all enjoy your turkey! I know I will
So the move over the weekend to the data center is finally completed. I still need to make some small changes as I used really long power cords and some longer ethernet cable that I would like to replace with shorter ones. I also would like to get some canned air and clean out some of the older servers.
