I woke up this morning to unrecoverable ECC errors on my primary server, and ordered some new RAM. It took a bit of hunting to find just the right kind, since AlphaServer 800s have been out of production for awhile. Trying to navigate Compaq's website gave me a headache.

Taking advantage of the kick in the butt, I'm installing the LDP services that were running on my machine onto the iBiblio machine which was set up for that purpose awhile ago. I have data backups, so that's not a problem.

I quickly installed Debian on my old firewall machine which has just been sitting unused for two months, so I can get my mail again. Since I should have RAM for the Alpha in one week, I'm just going to let my personal website stay down until then.

Oh, I almost forgot. I have a JOB, coding free software. For several year's I've been hunting it, and now I have it. I start Monday! Woo hoo!
