I am still working on several projects. One of them being a forum of sorts. Not the “all too common” version of PHP forums, but the standard issue USENET News Group access. I will be hosting local news groups for group discussion of my content. I almost have it all straight on how I wish to accomplish it and already have a News server running locally.
Wow. The power was out for a full 17 hours. My UPS only lasted 19 minutes of that. 🙂 Not only am I glad to be back online, but the house was starting to get chilly and the ice was melting in the Frig. Needless to say, I caught up on some lost sleep while the whole town was dark after 2 large transformers blew out last night. However, I am glad that I did not spend thousands of dollars on the latest and greatest UPS. Why? Because my ISP [Continue Reading]
The power just went out and I have no idea how long I am going to stay online. I guess I just have to hope for the best.
Well, the latest and greatest tweak that I applied to the whole site did exactly what I wanted it to do on one of my pages that I have not even posted yet. However, it also made each and every table that have throughout the domain not look as “I had intended.” This includes all text centered, which made the install guides totally unacceptable. As such, I have corrected the error and everything should be back to normal. Unfortunately, that means back to the drawing board for the “unposted content.”
Even though the "updates" have been few and far between, rest assured that I am working on several projects. Also, you may need to keep in mind that I do not just "toss" information up just to look cool. I work through the process and post the information when I am satisfied with it. This takes time. Currently, I want to post a "BootVis" guide, "Tweak UI," and a "How to host your own web services." I also wish to expand the Windows Services Information. Again, this takes time. Whenever [Continue Reading]
I seem to have fixed the search page for IE users. Please check it out and contact me if you have problems.
I admit it. I enjoy people contacting me and asking technical questions. I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with strangers (people that do not contact me but surf on in) as well as, sometimes, the desperate people asking me for help as a "last resort." As with anything, this also has its limits. READ MORE…
Introduction I admit it. I enjoy people contacting me and asking technical questions. I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with strangers (people that do not contact me but surf on in) as well as, sometimes, the desperate people asking me for help as a “last resort.” As with anything, this also has its limits. This page contains “all too frequent” questions that are “Impossible To Answer by E-Mail.” The reason behind this is not to make anyone angry or shun people from contacting me. What it is an attempt at [Continue Reading]
No matter how much preparation someone may do, nothing is more of a test then going "live." After a weekend of watching the web server logs, monitoring the E-Mail server, and replying to positive feedback, I feel the transfer has been a success. Thank you, kind reader, for your support during this transition. Long time readers may see slight changes in the way the site appears, mainly due to the reduction in bandwidth that I have against what my old ISP had, but nothing drastic. Some "get-smart-really-fast" topics that I [Continue Reading]
If you are reading this message, you are on the new local server. Both domains (blkviper.com and blackviper.com) have now been transferred over. However, blkviper.com will take between 24 and 72 hours to “take effect” via DNS around the world. Due to obvious reasons, my current E-Mail address may not work or it will be routed incorrectly. If the volume of E-Mail is greatly reduced in the next few days… I will know that something is very wrong.
