Well, it's back! It took me a bit but I managed to resurrect this site from the demons of technology. Turns out that my power supply went bad, frying my motherboard and/or CPU. Luckily it appears to have left my hard drive functioning so after purchasing new parts and putting things back together, spending two days troubleshooting what I thought was a bad hard drive, and finally fixing the problem, I have my server back. It's also lower power in comparison, running a 35W Celeron as opposed to the 65W amd processor I was using before.
Other technology things that have me pulling my hair out.
- My main desktop PC is acting up, nothing I can't fix but still annoying
- I dropped my iPhone and broke the screen, thankfully it still works
- My wireless router that is my backup to my server is worthless when being used as a router. Luckily I was able to borrow a router from my neighbor so I wasn't without the internet for a week.
On the positive side I have a Macbook Pro on the way. Nothing quite like a new toy to make me giddy.
Anyway, thanks for sticking with me while I was offline for a week. I'll be writing a bit more now that I have things working again.
