Wow, what a week it has been. Last week the server administrator asked me if I would like to move to a better server? I thought, ‘what they hell, better ram and better processor will cut down on movabletype rebuild times, sure!’ Unfortunately he forgot to mention (and I forgot to ask) that some of the specialist Perl Modules were not installed.
As you can see from the last entry, “Test,” I had to reinstall the Berkeley DB DB_File.pm before I could access moveabletype. These two modules are responsible for accessing the database that stored all the information for building the weblogs, so without them, we were screwed. Unfortunately it took a while for me to get in touch with the Admin and gain ‘root’ access to his server to be able to install it. For a lot of you non-geek humanoids this is probably a bit boring, but tough, I don’t make you read this.
I had a really tops weekend though, it was a lot of fun. Friday night we went to the RSL for the work force party at Zoo FM and charged out glasses for a couple of hours, followed by watching Van Helsing. It wasn’t a terrific movie, but I have certainly seen worse.
On Saturday night we all went to Breshan‘s 18th birthday party, which was a great time until some jerk decided to pick a fight with us. It was pretty funny, because ultimately I knew at the start of the night that something would happen. When we walked in I said to my friend Luke, “Hey dude, we totally don’t fit in at this party,” and we both laughed at it. As I looked around the room I saw a bunch of jocks and tough-guys, and very young teeny bopper girls. Me and my mates however, all listen to Metal and Punk music, Luke had his hair spiked up in full punk style and Ryan too. We were also geeks, which hardly fits in with Jocks, and we also found their bunch as amusing as they found us. It seemed like such a harmless comment to make when I said it, but in retrospect we should have taken it as a queue to say adios and turn our tails. We didn’t, shit happened, oh well.
I am going to be working on getting a good resume put together tonight. I want to do some freelance web design, coding and/or tech support work, so it will make it easier if I have a list of my qualifications and some links to work that I have done so far. Speaking of work I have done, I have been doing some touch ups on the Zoo FM website, which is one of the nicest looking websites I have done in a while. I wish I had time to sit and really give it a little more flare, but unfortunately when I am not being paid for work, I can’t really afford to do that.
As for right now, I need to find something to eat and just give my head a rest for a bit. I’ve been going at it pretty hard lately, so I think I need a break. I have an assignment that I have to get done ASAP too, it’s overdue, so I am scared.
