Test From MacJournal

Posted on July 26, 2014
Filed Under weblogs | Leave a Comment

A while back, I bought a MacHeist bundle. As is common with those things, I was after a few specific programs but ended up getting a lot with them that I was ambivalent about. One of those was MacJournal, a journalling and blogging program I wasn’t previously familiar with. Years ago I used Ecto as my blogging tool and was quite happy with it until it succumbed to bit rot. I haven’t had an OS X based tool since then, and I have blogged ever less in the last few years. Most of my blog posts now originate somewhere else and get pushed here, either Auphonic or Google Plus.

Just as a test, I hooked up MacJournal to this blog. It did pull down my entire blog and seems to be working just fine. Having a nice offline editor for the blog might be a bit of a boost to do it more often.

New Swimming Routine

Posted on July 21, 2014

New Swimming Routine

I started swimming on July 1st. In those 21 days, I've swam 12 days with 2 of those getting shortened by thunderstorms. That gives me 10 full sessions and 2 shortened against my will.

Across all that, I've swam just over 9.5 kilometers. Today, I did the fastest time yet, swimming 21 laps (1.05 Km) in 37 minutes. I knew it felt pretty good when I was doing it, but it was a full 2 minutes shorter than what I did on Friday.

So far so good with all this. Now my main goal is to just keep pace with the 70 year olds in the next lane.

New New Hosting

Posted on July 19, 2014
Filed Under weblogs | 2 Comments

I switched hosting back over the Xmas holidays in an unplanned, haphazard fashion that involved doing it twice to two different hosts and burning up a lot of holiday time. I wasn’t dying to do it again, but I just did. If you see this post, you are looking at the new host. There might be slight wonkiness for a day or two, and please feel free to report via comment on this post if you do.

At the recommendation of Ken Kennedy I have switched to Linode. The upside is that for really cheap, I have full control of my own VM. It’s not shared hosting, I have a “box” that is entirely my own on which I have root. The downside of that is that exactly the same. This is not a good solution if “sudo apt-get install apache2″ means nothing to you. It’s kind of a drag compared to the shared hosting Cpanel solutions that do everything for you, but is good for me and my Rube Goldbergian podcast publishing system.

I finally got tired of the poor response and throttling of the other system so now I’m in the long slow process of pulling every domain I have into Linode. At this point, I have some on Bluehost, some on Hostgator and this one here. After I solidify the process to set up the domains and get everything working (forwarding email is the sticky bit right now), then I will move them all one by one. I’ll also make the hard decision to shutter some domains that I created on a whim and then do little or nothing with. I’m trying to fight my hoarding tendencies in the physical world, I should do it in the digital world too.

For now, please comment if anything doesn’t work right. I predict death of a thousand paper cuts trying to get this all straightened out. I’d appreciate help in identifying those paper cuts.

    Hosting Issues

    I’ve had a raft of hosting issues and two quick migrations over the long holidays. This is what you might call a non-optimal way to spend a vacation. Things seem to have settled down now and back to some stability. Here’s hoping at least.
