PS:362 – New Meds, New Site, New Year

So the doctor’s visit went okay. Really liked the new doc, I’ve met a few over the years and I’m honestly going to see if this guy can be my GP – I honestly haven’t felt like a doc actually heard me and answered my questions, this guy heard my concerns, answered my questions, and even gave me a newer med and teamed it up with the metformin to see if we can’t get the sugar under control, and gave me a new BP med which got my body to relax so much that last night I crashed out SUPER early – 9hr 45 minutes of sleep according to the fitbit.

Working hard on FlockHosting.com and ThrustNet.com this week, hoping to create a lot simpler set of sites, nail things down and make it concise and to the point, no more wordy pages, just what I offer, to the point, keep it simple, no hard to manage designs, easy to add if I need to, and simple to remove too.

2018 is rapidly approaching. A lot of things I want to see this coming year, and with 3 posts left in my commitment to post daily for a year, I’m really missing the steady flow as I’ve been writing these past few days, helps me get things out of my head and makes it more real if that makes any sense – journal is one thing, still great for things not ready for prime time, but online blog really makes it more “out there”, something about that is therapeutic to me.

For now, back to it, got swim lessons tonight with the kiddo, and night 2 of new meds, so we shall see how the RBS (Resting Blood Sugar) looks in the AM, this morning 201, still high, but for my mornings? Actually lower than just metformin! So improvement, hoping day two is even more!

PS:313 – Improving Performance

I have been working on plans to really improve options for projects – in a growing world of site builders and outages in hosting, it’s harder and harder to keep customers, and keep them happy.

This week I had a lot more planned, sadly this week has not gone as I had planned at all. I mean I thought it was Tuesday yesterday, and here we are on Wednesday. Doh.

But I’ve got some work done, some improvements in performance my usual test subject (aka this blog) is already showing an improvement from a C- to an A (working on the +) 😀 So quite the improvement.

Also working on a BIG eComm upgrade for a customer, been testing a server setup to bring their database into a huge HA cluster, and I’m excited about it! While the customer may not be a long-term customer, if I can off-load MySQL – might be able to keep him longer with improved performance, really handle things like high-traffic really well, so excited about the idea, right now in testing I’ve grabbed a copy of the site for a dev server that goes live tomorrow, I’m going to map all my DNS and give it a stress test or three. I think it’s going to work amazingly! If I’m right, time to schedule a change or three 🙂

I need to get to sleep, car maintenance today, then maybe a quick run downtown for talk about another project (that can greatly benefit from these wacky improvements I’m thinking about) so much to do, taxes, work, fun, sleep, etc. lots to do, little time. Here we go.

PS:182 – Same thing…

This is the 5th server install and build-out in the last few days. Thankfully all have been insanely quick, easy and functional!

Super happy with the new digs – I’ve worked with many data centers over the years and these guys are an awesome setup. I hope that doesn’t change as I was with one company for nearly 7 years and towards the end, there were new faces, old faces who kept  things running smoothly disappeared 🙁 so hoping my account manager and others stay on and keep it good!

More servers to build out but now to sync 8 to 40GB of data! Happy Sunday All!
