Server Move

I’ve had a new server on my network for a few months now, and have been procrastinating moving over to it. I’m not really sure why, because it was just a matter of logging into SSH to get the process started. Not like I had to physically do anything!

Anyway, I finally decided to get it done with today, so it’s now residing on grunt, while it had previously been on oreos. The main decision to move it was because I don’t like using resources that should be set aside for Holdfire Network. Granted, grunt is still a network server, but there’s about triple the resources available on this server, compared to my other ones. I was initially setting it up as my personal dev server, but decided to add it to the company instead.

That aside, I’ve been putting some finishing touches on a new design that I’ve been working on. The process is a bit slow, since it’s always a pain designing for myself. Sooner or later I’ll get it up, although I’d prefer sooner.

In other news, I haven’t been up to much other than trying to look around for more freelance work. It’s so frustrating being a freelancer sometimes, when your skillset does not include graphic design. It’d be much easier to find work if I was also a graphic designer, but because I’m not, my scope is a bit more narrow. There was a full time opportunity I was a candidate for, but I didn’t get offered the job, and the owner of the company is not able to give me any details as to why I didn’t get it. I’m a bit miffed that I can’t resolve what I lacked, but I’ll just keep trying elsewhere. I’ve been searching like a mad woman the past couple of weeks.

Hah yeah, I know. There are a few I’ve used before that are no longer available anymore. There used to be orion, reeses, … Huh, I can’t seem the remember if there were more. :3

But chirp was after a TI song that I always played “shorty chirp when I chirp back,” oreos was because I just like oreo cookies, spartan/elite/grunt are all after characters in the Halo gaming world. 🙂
