One of my favourite past times is doing updates and breaking shit. If anything it is the pinnacle of running any web app. Why wait for a h4x0r to take you down, when you can DIY.
BBS.yt is an installation of Chevereto that runs on DreamHost, since my one of my cloud storage spaces is DreamObjects, and Chevereto happily will use that to dump my pix in without any issues. Which is great since it’s better than dumping pix on Google.
A couple days ago I get a notification that Chevereto is needing an update, not a problem, click a link and let it do its thing. Except this time, dumb ass did it on his phone.
This is a bad idea since it timed out and spanked everything to a white screen hell. Not my best moment, but there you go, it happened. It took me another couple days to remember I shagged it completely and trying to figure out how to undo the mess I made.
Which is precisely what happened today, thankfully it was a success and now BBS.yt lives for another day.
As you can probably tell from the absolute boringness of this particular post, I’m aiming to do more journal writing (hemblogging) this year to improve my SEO Influencer rating to be less boring.
I can’t get to sleep as usual, happy days, since I’m waiting for the liberating feeling that is payday. Considering my end of monthing has left me a tad bit short on change, the excitement of ordering the menu off PFK (j/k we call it KFC here in France) is basically like christmas day. One can not wait.
However, in the spirit of doing things whilst limited to the joke that is my 3G connection, I was considering doing a bit of work on the ec website, perhaps going back to the old BBS theme. I get bored of chopping and changing frequently, and I miss that old friend of a theme from back in the day.
However, my web host has other plans for being able to access my panel and fix up some domain links. Namely :
Okänt fel Ett okänt fel inträffade. Vänligen försök igen lite senare.
My Hosting Panel, Unknown Error, March 2019, Medium ASPX
Somewhat disapointing but hey, it’s the first time it’s happened and everything else is running fine. Plus at 79kr I can’t really complain either, overall this site has done pretty well for its self, no major dramas, slowness or downtime.
Since my hands are tied I’m probably going to play a bit of 3DS in the hopes I’ll pass out and it’ll be chicken time.
I’ve been working questionably not that hard on a few things, mainly getting the images for a few of my managed wordpress sites serving from a cdn and off loading the images on to an S3 compatable service to take the load off of the VPS I’m using.
So far so good.
But the bigger thing is getting back in to using Piwigo for my photos, so I can just cut the connection with Google on that end.
Right now, I have to download everything and sift through it before uploading them to the Photo Dump. When that is likely to happen, I do not know.
After a bit of a go on my own terms using my own server, it’s been a good run with the server from DigitalOcean but since my servers on there have become exclusively for business usage.
The problem with that, is I have to hand the account over to myself, the business and justify the business expense.
So because bureaucracy is as it is, I have to seperate the personal server from the bank of business ones. And because my DreamHost account is personal, I started up a DreamHost VPS for this site and EC.JE.
During this week, I’ve got to do the manual part, setting it all up, getting the plugins ready and moving the content. At least the images are still hosted on a CDN service.
I have managed to do two things in the last twenty four hours that I have been wanting to do forevers.
The first being, after many years of wanting to run my own version of the LiveJournal code, I finally got my shit together to do so. Granted, since LiveJournal has since dropped off the open source circuit, it’s a Dreamwidth install. But it’s forked off LiveJournal’s code.
