It seemed that after adding the additional domains, the local web server was performing very slowly, even on the local LAN. After playing with different settings and sometimes explicitly setting paths, it seems as though the server is fixed and content is served at a much higher rate. Not sure what I did, but I am glad I fixed it as the previous state was totally unacceptable. 🙂
Domain transfer status: http://www.blkviper.com/ has not been converted over, but http://www.blackviper.com/ has. It will take 24 to 72 hours for the DNS information to update throughout the internet. Until that time, the old server will still answer requests. The test domain ) should be active. My G-Fri’s little spot on the web is also active: She may not have "31337" web master "skilz," but her heart is in the right place. 🙂 Any issues you may have, please contact me so I can address and fix them ASAP. I am [Continue Reading]
I have updated my ASK BV (FAQ) to include the answer to an increasingly common question: "What is "C-Dilla?" Is it spyware? Trojan? What installed it?"
Wow. I fell behind again in E-Mail answering. Two hours later, things are caught up. Kind words are always welcome as they fuel this domain. The funny thing is, I have not fallen behind due to anything "important," but I needed a well deserved break from the real world. As such, I dove in head first with Asherons Call 2. For several months (since release) I have been playing the game online and enjoy it. Many things do not make me happy, for one: The crafting system is impossible. However, [Continue Reading]
80%. That is about how much I finished configuring my network. Local and public DNS is active as well as the web server. However, I still need time to finish internal testing before everything “goes live.” Many readers have requested content updates, etc, but I wish to finish the domain conversion before any additional content is placed online. Even more readers have asked “how am I doing it?” Well, I will post that information after I actually have everything online and public. 🙂 I appreciate your kind words as they [Continue Reading]
Happy Anniversary www.blackviper.com! The site has been up and running for 4 years now. I really wanted to reach my goal of full conversion to my own resources and hosting by this date. However, due to “real-world” events and “real-job” working hours, I have not had the time to do so. Also, along those same lines, I am extremely behind on E-Mail. About 3 hours worth. The good news is that I have a 3 day weekend (almost had to work Saturday, Sunday and Monday) and will attempt to catch [Continue Reading]
I updated the page with regards to a very popular question: What kind of computer system should I buy? What company? Should I build one?
My local mail server seems to be working properly and I am getting really close to converting the domains over to my own servers. Taking the plunge is quite a step. Something I have looked forward to for a few years. Now, I am scared. 🙂 I am also going to take this opportunity to test out a different E-Mail program than the constraining Outlook Express.
I updated my Cut and Paste Writers Rant [link removed] to reflect an additional offender. That makes ten total. This page [link removed] has screen shots and exposes the Cut and Paste Writers [link removed] for what they really are.
The broadband has been up and running for a couple of weeks, now, and I am happy with the service and latency. This can only mean one thing: Time to geek out! Some of the things that I wish to do in the near future, when the "real job" lets me stay home for a few hours is: I plan on hosting several "non-public" game servers to provide my readers with a nice place to play free of as many hacks, cracks and cheats as I possibly can. I wish [Continue Reading]
