Wow, its been just over a month since my last post. Does that mean nothing interesting is going on? No. In the past 30 or so days, I celebrated my birthday, built a server, diagnosed a bad motherboard, RMAd the motherboard, rebuilt the server with the new board, and evaluated several XBMC boxes, to name a few things. I've accumulated a lot of "interesting" posts in my head, but I haven't found the time yet to compose them. I also wiped and reinstalled my linux desktop with Ubuntu's new LTS release, which I've found to be quite stable and a good improvement over their last release, 13.10. In the process of doing that, its taken me a while to reinstall all the software I use for various things, like editing my website (I use PHPStorm bt the way). But I'm back in business and looking forward to doing a better job in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
