Currently at about 50% – sadly didn’t get everything I wanted to get done, I’m at 12 remaining tasks out of about 40 (that’s only migration related) mapped out the final re-adjustments to the programming gig as I was waiting for backups to begin.
The big tasks I have in my robot actions is a GIANT magazine migration from ancient hardware as I mentioned the other day to modern, didn’t happen. Wish it had. Didn’t have everything I needed for one (no confirmation on IP changes from both sides) and secondly I had a slew of other issues as I migrated 200+ sites to a server, the same MySQL issue I’ve had before, since so many servers run well, we never upgrade. I’ve stuck at older MySQL for a while, but now as I have migrated about 4 legacy servers this past evening over, Woohoo! But it meant manually checking 200+ sites, by hand. Resetting passwords as I went along. Did you know on a MacBook Pro Core i5 with 8GB of Ram and a SSD you can open about 20 tabs at once (well with 25 other tabs open for migration/coding/music listening) it’s rather impressive.
One of the things I want to do once all projects are caught up is build a hackintosh, I have 2 builds I like, process seems fairly straight forward, but I also need to pull some hard drives and have a yard sale of computers, I have 2 laptops up for grabs, heck I think I’m going to post $200 OBO on Facebook, shipping not included, but machines which would be great for back to school! Save a few parents a few bucks vs. $800 laptops (Your welcome parents)
So that leaves more tasks for Monday, I’m going to lock down the people I need, set a specific time (6:30PM) and say “Hell or Highwater!” and just get-er-done. I need one less iron in the fire, getting there. Slowly but surely.
This next week I think its time to book my hydro massage, and real day off. Already feel lighter with this migration DONE, backup is already running to the new backup server, all customer DNS is backed up, still some work to do, but its cleanup not THE WHOLE PROJECT.
I want to get back to Tech Friendly Help & Light Unto, both projects I have great desire for, and for starters really just going to get into both and start queuing up content for mid-month and beyond, hopefully writing up until the end of the year, something to post at least 1-2 times a week or month (not sure which) but it seems like it’d be fun!
Well its nearly 5:30am, post in for the day, still much to do. For now sleep is my goal. Night.
