Starting to get settled

My network is now up and running, at least in some sort of fetal state right now… I have to get one more desk before I can set up the rest of the computers — which I'm really looking forward to… When the other gear is in there will be approximately three terabytes of active drives in this room! And when you add up all the archived storage there is about double that.

For those trying to get in touch, I'm back online of course, and my old cellphone still works (but I'll be switching the number). Those of you who want/need it, send me an IM about the new land line number (don't assume I'll remember, it's not my strong point). I've just got to have my mail relay opened up to my new IP here, so my email is currently receiving but not sending.

And, wow, does Rogers digital cable television quality ever suck bad in comparison to Bell's satellite service… It's really overcompressed. Plus not having a PVR kind of blows once you've been psychologically “trained” to use one. So building some kind of PVR-PC unit is on my high to-do list… It'll be cool having all of my DVDs, music, TV shows, everything all transmitting across and archived on the network.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
