Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

This site isn't doing so well...

Since I upgraded to Roller 0.9.8, this site has crashed twice. Once last night, and once this afternoon. Both appear to be caused by a MySQL failure, followed by an AJP to Tomcat failure. I haven't asked Keith yet, but I do suspect it's a hosting issue, not a software issue.

Update: From Keith:

No problems with the database as far as I can tell from the logs.

Uptime on the server is currently 9939830 seconds or 115 days.  Is it 
possible that you are hitting the 20 connection per user max?

Well at least it stayed up through the night, if it goes again then obviously it's Roller 0.9.8 and I'll be reverting back to the last version (a CVS snapshot) I had running.

What is the fastest way to transfer data between PowerBooks?

In order to be a good husband, now that I've given my old laptop to Julie, I need to transfer all my files, settings, etc. from my old PowerBook to my new one. What's the fastest way to do this? I'm guessing Firewire or something like that. Do the Apple Retail outlets sell anything?

Today's Upgrades

Today's upgrades include Roller (to version 0.9.8) and a new PowerBook. I picked up a 17-incher from my local Apple Store this afternoon. It's big and awesome. As for the Roller upgrade, I've only found one bug so far (related to previewing themes). Hope y'all had a good weekend.
