Current Status

It has been quite a while since there has been a post here. The last one being in 2019, a few months before the pandemic shut it all down for a while (assuming 3+ years is a “while”).

We have been having virtual events for most of that time, but not publishing any information. I guess I was not in the mood to keep it updated, but I had to do some migration work this week, so it seems like a good time to get back to it.


  1. I reduced my VPS count by one, so I had to migrate all things to a new instance as there was a month gap in paying for it and why have three VPS services when I really only need 1?
  2. I had to rebuild my toolbase, as there have been a lot of changes in my systems in the last 3 years. There is a talk in that story, so that will be coming.
  3. Software needed to be updated - OS, web server, mail system, etc. Typical system work when upgrading things.
  4. Meetings will remain virtual for a while yet. I have not heard anyone clamoring for in person, so we will continue as we are.
  5. We will get back into technical talks, as the world may have been on pause, but technology has marched on and lots of things have happened.
  6. As you may have noticed, we stopped being a LOPSA member and I am not sure what is going on there. The new logo is a nod to Unix wizards (and sages).
  7. The LISA conference ended back in 2021. It has been replaced with the SRECons, which makes sense, but I will miss it.
  8. There will likely be a few errors on the site, as I am sure some things are not exactly as they should be and there are new settings I have made which may affect the layout. Be patient, I have not looked at this in several years.

There will be more posts coming, but at least there is some activity again.
