Welcome to Cynix Sites. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
I’ve blogged about Donna and Tommy Hendley’s Brandon’s Smile Ministry in the past. Recently Donna and Tommy left the United States for Kazakhstan in an attempt to adopt a ten year old boy named Borya. They’re over there for no less than 6 weeks and will probably have to return again in the future before they can bring Borya home to the US. You can follow them on their adoption blog located here: Borya’s Journey. Complete with pictures.
Now you can beat that pesky 5 year old cousin of yours.
Yup, still alive and kicking. As noted earlier, I’m in the process of moving all of my sites onto a small VPS instead of having them scattered around the net. Been having problems as I’m also using the experience to install Nginx and learn it as it’s a webserver I’ve not used before. Setting up the basic server wasn’t too hard although php kept crashing every time I turned away from it. (That was those Bad Gateway errors folks were seeing.) Getting cgi’s to run on Nginx wasn’t fun either. Thanks to all those who emailed to let me know that there was a problem.
Part of the reason why I’m doing this, outside of a legal opinion that got handed down to me concerning my hosting and what I get in trade to host some sites, was that I really need a proxy to view the web here in the library. They just censor too many sites and I have to keep firing up Tor to get around their blocks when I’m trying to help folks. (OK, that last link only had a single return but I hope you get the idea.)
All of my sites should be working again although there is the occasional issue. Search and the tags here don’t currently work since I’m having problems with the rewrite rules. (Note to self: Post about it to hopefully get some help.) Nginx’s error logs are empty but I did find the fix for that. I added a bunch of photos to the Gallery install if you want to check them out. Hopefully I can re catalog them shortly.
Please let me know if you see something broken.
I posted this on the Unshelved Answers forums but I thought I would post about it as well. I’ve been trying to remember this title for quite some time now. It was one of the books I lost with Angie. I was in the middle of it when I had my health problems back in 1999 so I would like to finish it.
Just going to throw this out an yet another attempt to see if anyone
remembers it. It’s an Apocalyptic setting where the main character, I
believe a young female, is undergoing her adulthood trial which
consists of climbing a mountain. At the top she discovers aliens living
I remember it being a Science Fiction Book Club title as I received
it in the same shipment as Nancy Kress’ Beggars of Spain so that would
put it 1993ish.
It’s not Battlefield Earth which usually gets suggested to me when I ask.
Just a quick mention that I’m moving sites around today. I bought myself a small VPS for my Christmas present this year and am spending the day moving the sites over to it. Things may be broken for a bit. Just a heads up.
edit: Quick Web got back to me to let me know that they have a coupon for a 25% discount recurring for the life of the account. If you pick up a XEN VPS, be sure to enter XEN25 during check out. (I think it says so on their site but just to throw that in there.)
I get the silliest comments left by spammers on my sites.
“The thing is I already knew this info but never implemented it”
I’m so glad that Cynix Hood was worth that much for you.
edit: It’s a pity though that the spammer is using deviantart for their crud. Link added here so I can follow up on it later on. It’s been reported though.
Yup, still alive. Bellringing is all over with and I’m playing catch up as quickly as I can. In the middle of some projects.
Anyway I’ve learned that learned that silk screened shirts should be washed inside-out to maximize their longevity. I didn’t know that. Had tons of them after college that I wore quickly over the years that Angie kept nagging me about. I wonder if they would have worn better if I had done that.
I mostly wear collared polo shirts now a days.
Now you learned something as well.
The tracker has been up for awhile now. The indexer and the main site have now returned.
Yes, I have invites but no I’m not giving them out as I don’t want to put my own account at risk. (edit: I think waiting until they resolve the rest of their issues would be best anyway before overtaxing their servers with new users.)
Could Neville done it in four books? I have to wonder. I’ve always taken the view that while the Harry Potter books were fairly tight, I always wanted to know more about the school and what was happening in the background. The movies are known for cutting parts out of the books. If I said that Neville could have done it in four books, that means even more would have been taken out.
