There’s a lot of things I should be doing, and a lot of things I am doing – meaning I have to neglect some of the things I should be doing…like blogging!
As usual it’s not a case of bloggers block as I have PLENTY of things to write about, I’ve just not had the time nor energy to put finger to keyboard and get them done.
Part of the problem being I had no computer for quite some time, and previous to that my PC was in the old apartment but I was in the new house..so all I had was my phone. I did try blogging from that a couple of times but it didn’t work out particularly well.
I’ve got my office in the new place set-up now though, got the desk up, chair is cleaned and in, got one of those plastic Ikea mat things to protect the floor, cleaned the shit out of my PC and changed all 5 case fans cos they were noisy, dusty and basically nasty.
I also got myself a Gigabit switch and the whole house is running on Gigabit now! Well at least from my study to the TV as that’s all that matters (for both the Unifi Hypp.TV and the HTPC I’ve got sitting there). I’ve got 3 things running on Gigabit which is enough (the DNS-323 NAS, my desktop the downloading beast and the XBMC box plugged into the TV).
My blog has moved over to the new hosting – so it should be faster and more stable now. It’s on an IPServerOne Green Server (more about that later).
This is actually my first post since last year, and my first post using Unifi – My Unifi Installation Experience here. I’ll talk more about the using Unifi experience soon (the line speed, latency, the TV offerings and quality and the phone line).
And we’ve officially moved into the new house now, got our bed up last Friday, completely cleared out the old place on Wednesday & Thursday night (until 5am..), the whole day Friday and Saturday morning. Then Saturday afternoon we got the cleaners in and Saturday night handed the keys back to the landlord – so we are actually officially out of there now!
It was indeed pretty stressful and wow….6 years of crap sure is a lot of junk. We had to be brutal in what we wanted to keep, sell, throw away or take with us. We ended up giving most of the big items to charity as the shop concept only really worked well for small items. And there were a lot of people who FFKed.
Anyway super busy at work now too and my mom is coming towards the end of this week…so even less likely I’ll be blogging. But I will try anyhow.
