Indeed, it's been quite a while. About 3-1/2 years since the last post.
It's been a busy time. And mostly I've been hanging out on FaceBook, or a bit on Google+. My personal server had some disk problems a couple years back, and I decided it wasn't worth fixing. It was costing quite a bit each year to do the server housing. However, it was still WAY cheaper than going with a hosted server. But all I needed was some web hosting.
Still, I needed to do a bit of data recovery. I eventually got around to doing it even though I was busy doing other things for the most part. But I got the data back, and then just ignored it.
Eventually, I thought that FB was getting a bit too much of my attention. Of course, this is over at Google, technically... Anyways, I figured I would put a couple of my websites back so that they at least had a bit of the old content.
I might end up doing more of this. I might not do too much more here on Blogger. It's pretty easy to post things here though. And I don't have to deal with maintaining any code, which is good.
The Sonos boxes are still providing me music, and they do a great job at it. They still get music from a ReadyNAS, albeit a newer version that has Intel Atom processors instead of the open-source Sparc hardware. The Atom processor is quite a bit faster though.
As for work stuff. I probably won't discuss too much of that. Other to say I've been doing a bit with PostgreSQL, an open-source relational database that's pretty good.
