The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

A new home for The Core Dump

Woho! First post on the “new” server!

“New” in quotes since it’s actually Temeryx, my old faithful G4/450 that’s been pressed into service as a web host. Hopefully it’ll be studly enough to handle Movable Type.

Big thanks to Joe for letting me tap in to his DSL line.

The migration from the old box turned out to be much more of a pain in the rear than expected, but–knock on wood–I’ve worked out most of the issues at this point, apart from MT-Blacklist eating itself. And unfortunately, with the state of comment spam being what it is, you pretty much have to run MT-Blacklist with Movable Type, so it’s a bit of a bummer.

Good things should be ahead now, since I finally have a host on which I’m root to fiddle around.

Onward and upward.

UPDATE: For some reason, had to go completely medieval on the current MT-Blacklist install in order to reset whatever was the cause of the horking. All seems well now.
