Blog migration plans

With my new PostgreSQL backend, I'm planning some migration of ACD and other services currently “in production.”

Some downtime will be expected, but it should be short. Everything is conceptual at the moment, because there will be some feature loss with moving to the new blog platform series. I'm hoping to improve some resource management on the server at the some time by consolidating the engines running on the backend.

This is a peek behind the curtain how a geek's mind works... ~o)

Career. Work. Weekend.

Looks like work will impact the weekend a bit.

I'll be pushing a lot of bits this weekend.

WFRP podcast, part duex, et. al

The consensus is... do it. I'm "talking" to a couple of people about content, format, &tc.

More importantly, I'm talking to my players about another session! Damn, more than 6 weeks since the last session.

Babies and families do take precedent. No faults there.

Let's play!

WFRP podcast?

Anybody think there is a need for a U.S. based Warhammer Fantasy Role Play podcast?

I'm mulling the idea over as I expand my campaign wiki. With all the whining on other podcasts about GW and general ignoring of WFRP in the podcast space (if I hear Luke Meyer plug Savage Worlds one more time I'll puke), me thinks there is a niche to fill.

Thoughts. I would need a co-host though.

Getting your IP address

There are a lot of "What's your IP" services on the net. This is not about those.

I had a need today to load a shell script with the IP address of my interface at work. ifconfig told me, but it was noisy. So I crafted the following one-liner on the command line then used it in the shell script (depending on your distro, you might have better ways, but this solved an immediate need):

IP=`ifconfig en0 | grep -w inet | cut -d ' ' -f 2`

PostgreSQL installed... lurking plans

I just built PostgreSQL. I'm about to install a wiki for my ongoing WFRP campaign... and I'm playing with Stripes, a JSP view-controller framework as I continue to study for a professional exam.
