bummer being on-call

It’s just a part of the job…but by the end of the week I’m ready to skin the dog and make the cat wear it as a trophy.

I’ve been trying for a few days to get my new webserver installed and configured right. It’s been a bit of a pain, but the new result should be a significant upgrade over the current digs at http://www.danieljdoughty.com as it will give me more ability to throttle the web page if I get googled. It will also give me some pretty graphs that show when the sites getting hit and from where. It’ll help me locate broken links. Oh yeah and the biggest feature is it’s php functionality. I’ve been wanting to add some tools to my webpage(nutritional calculators, RMR calculators, etc) and PHP is the sensible way to do it. I do also want to add some rss support to the web site. That will be completely new to me but I’m looking forward to the challenge. I mean LJ is already rss enabled, but I’m talking about the other things on my site.

oh yeah and as is my tradition I am of course sitting around and drinking and programming. Yeah, I know it’s 9AM, but to me it’s similar to a Thursday 6pm.

Marx bros

Someone in heaven loves me. There’s a run of 3 of the marx brothers films tomorrow morning. I’ll be yucking it up for weeks to come.
