Can’t let a month go by…

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Well, more than a month *has* past, but the archives don’t care.

It’s not that I haven’t had a lot going on that would be blog-worthy (at least from a journal-ish standpoint), but I just have had the time or the motivation to post. High up on the list; getting married (soon), moving (soon), getting a (brand) new car and work++. Plus, there are lots of little things like movies, games, music and friends that deserve mention.

Oddly, I do like to write and I love to use all these great gadgets to do it. I’ve lowered the barriers by leveraging them do it quickly, easily and from everywhere, but I just don’t do it…

Keep and ear open for me though, I hope to reshape my habits over the summer. With any luck, being a little more prolific will be part of it. For now, this post is just a reminder that I’m still here.

6.6 hours of my workday

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

While not the entirety of my day, this shows the excitement of an average day…

Ironically, the next day (today) I got a haircut, beard and all.

To Live Another Day

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

I’ll admit, I checked on it more than once throughout the day.

glenn@stammdebian:~$ uptime
16:49:06 up 318 days, 4:27, load average: 0.07, 0.02, 0.00

We made it through. I don’t know how long the power was off, or if it was even off at all. We may have to go through this all over again next week if they didn’t finish.

Just another 47 days of worry…

We’re getting close!!!

In just a few short month my precious little trooper of a Debian box will have been up, without a reboot, for a year.

Unfortunatly, in the infinte wisdom of those that be, our buildings power will be upgraded on Sunday.

This could easily be a much longer post as I describe my turmoil and the jeers of my fellow co-workers. I had gone so far as to consider renting a gas powered generator and babysitting the damn thing. Time and money have made this an overzealos plan.

Dave is going to power down the Stamm servers, like any other sane person would do and I am going to try to ride out the storm on the then nearly zero load UPS.

We’ll all find out on Monday whether or not it made it over the weekend.

317 days…

What is this place?

Friday, January 20th, 2006

Well, this is one of the several Stamm tech blogs. This one is me, Glenn. Some of them are private some of them are public. These are places for us, as members of Stamm Business Technologies, to keep notes, musings and to share some of our knowledge. Each of us has our own skill-sets and our own perspectives.

Maybe this will catch on, maybe it won’t. Who knows…

As a note, each of these blogs, while being hosted by Stamm Business Technologies and produced by employees of Stamm Business Technologies, the views expressed within are net expressly the views of Stamm Business Technologies.

EDIT: This is an import (along with a handful of other posts) from a failed effort to get a company blog site up and running.
