    Server Migration

    No, its not coming up. It's already done.

    The migration took about 18 min this morning and has ramped up an already sick system speed wise. The Virtual system has been upgraded from Xen to KVM. KVMs are much faster compared to Xen. For example, in UnixBench testing a KVM scored 3x better than a Xen setup on identical hardware. During a kernel compile, a KVM setup completed 28% faster compared to a Xen setup.

    Which is basic technobabble for even faster machines.

    Best thing I ever did was switch to these dedicated setups on linode. Def not the cheapest around... but damn they are blazingly fast.

    So if anyone noticed the downtime... well that's why -)

    Happy Father's Day

    Yes, I could not agree more. I really appreciate it. Thanks for the digital home.
    The school of hard knocks does not offer a tuition assistance program.

    The time to build an Ark is when the sun is still shining.

    The problem is...we are all part of the problem.

    The Post Apocalyptic Starvation Diet will succeed where all other diets have failed.

    The lack of the ability to adjust to new and different circumstances is by very definition the inability to evolve and as with all things that fail to evolve, they are doomed to extinction.
