Well, almost seven years after my last post, I’ve decided to move my personal home yet again. Things are going to be ugly for a while as I refresh most of the content and pages. Tumblr was a great, cheap option for hosting my static blog. Even with my custom domain, it was free and … Read more Migration to AWS
So I’ve decided to make some significant changes to my online presence. The first of which is moving away from my self-hosted WordPress solution to Tumblr. I have finished moving over all of the posts and will be transferring the domain name soon. I’ll post more about the transition soon.
I finally decided to do some housecleaning on the website. I noticed that the old theme didn’t seem to fully work with the latest version of WordPress so I’ve changed it to something that may or may not be temporary. I also noticed that apparently someone had gained access to the webserver and there was … Read more Housecleaning
So, I finally decided to remove the weekly twitter blog posts. It was completely redundant – if you wanted to see what I post on twitter, you would’ve followed me @jbctech. It made the blog look terrible (even though I never update it). I hope to try to get back into this in the near … Read more Finally removed weekly tweet posts
Well, I apparently completely suck at this internet blog thing. Shortly after working with the PR people at NetApp to get my own blog, I wrote a few short articles on installation of some of the products I work on and then…quit updating. I tell myself I have excuses – a lot has happened in … Read more Happy Belated New Year
I now have a second blog going on blogs.netapp.com. It will be where all work-related postings go. So, if you’re here looking for my random work related thoughts, please check out my new blog: WHU Who!?
If you usually visit jbctech.com, you may have noticed that the site was redirected to an advertisement page for the last two days. That’s because I forgot to renew my domain name. I’ve owned jbctech.com for the last 11-12 years and have never let it expire like that. I believe the registrar only has me … Read more jbctech.com outage
Speaking of the blog, you may notice that there are a few oddities…for instance, even though this post is posted under the “Blog” category, it doesn’t show up under the title. I’m working on resolving that issue. The problem lies in that I always run the “bleeding edge” version of WordPress (currently 2.3-alpha) and it’s … Read more Oddities
Yesterday, you may have noticed that the blog was down. I recently switched hosting providers and had to move the data over. As it turns out, everything appears to be fully functional again. The backup from the previous hosting provider was a bit over a gigabyte – that included my IMAP mail as well as … Read more Quick downtime
My friend RBChallenger from Lightning-Alley.com informed me that jbctech.com is worth around $19K on the LeapFish Domain appraisal site. Well…I don’t know about that, but I can tell you this: if anyone offered half that much for the domain, I’d be a fool not to accept! Here’s some other interesting ones: Microsoft.com – $132.6MYahoo.com – … Read more jbctech.com worth $19K
