Well another year gathering to a end, the end of semester spit and karaoke session was a huge success once again. It was dissapointing that the weather was against us but we can help that. The head count wad about 30 at one stage, a good number and well worth the effort for. Our skills in meat and vegi cooking once again needs improving, every year the quality seems to fluctuate. Maybe next year we can get this right? Suggestions for next year, I would spilt the karaoke singing with songs allowing people to get ready and removing the silence? Thanks to all the past members that turned up, I enjoyed the catchup session and helped me relax (plus sangera mixing). Please leave comments so we can improve for next year!!
Yay I have a iPhone…
But I had to send it back 🙁
After owning a brand new iPhone 3Gs for 5 Weeks it burnt up in a BIG Fire Ball, all I did was plug it in!
Any way after having withdrawal symptoms and dusting my laptop of, I have started to get the computing Societies Server back in shape.
The new UPS and backup hard drive upgrade went flawlessly, it was like I was running it on a Mac! The plug in make go go process was a bit to easy. As the current server hasn’t any Sata Ports, we dropped in a PCI card and hooked up a mirrored pair to the machine. No Bios Alterations needed!
More monitoring systems were also installed and security tightened, Yes Don’t get your password wrong now!! (Bans have been added for users who try to guess a password, IP bans for username guessing and instant bans for those who have nothing better to do like guessing root passwords).
The old backup drives have been reused by expanding the users drives, more members = we need more space..
There is allot more cleaning to be done, but it’s coming along nicely now.
Well, after a long day at CSIRO. And spending all the easter break creating a script so other users can create their own WordPress blogs on our student server owned by the Tasmanian University Computing Society (TUCS), I though I should at least try out my handy work, and start a blog. Well here is mine well the start at least so stay tuned to hovo.id.au for more about the workings of Luke.
