What is wrong with this. I have tried changing every single option in the vsftpd.conf and read about everything google has to offer about that VSFTP package and yet it is still so slow that smartftp won't even both connecting.

If that sonds familiar to anyone please feel free to contact me.

DNS makes me hate my project

I am way over my head doing stuff I don't even care about. Like compiling apache, PHp and mysql and all the modules I wanted and phpmyadmin and a control panel was kind of fun. Then setting up ssh with logins was a little bit of a challenge but it was fine too.

Then came FTP. Well it wasn't working at all I got (e:ajay) to help me (thanks for helping me) but it is so fucking slow I can't even use it. Like most programs time out before it even logins in and then once it logs in it times out again. I searched online and tried to folow whatever instructions I could find about it being slow but I don't know if it is the server or the way the ftp was set up. I fear it is related to the DNS drama.

DNS
The DNS configuration was kind of working with BIND 8, then I upgraded to 9.2 and now nothing works for me.

If anyone understands how to set up a DNS server, please contact me or I am going to kill this site when the contract for the current locations ends this month. I would just pay for a server admin if I hadn't already threw $1000 at this.

First of all it is not worth the money - it now costs $40.00 month but it also def not worth all of my time. I have worked like 30 hours on this and I don't even have time to program anymore since the stupid crash move thing I have spent every waking minute compiling and installing. I pretty much just wanted to add the pdf and ming modules to PHP.

I hate to say this but next time I am definately picking a microsoft server because I can still run all of these fanctastic opesnource packages like php, mysql, and apache and not have to deal with the cryptic bullshit. What kills me is the attituide that the linux people in the forums have. I have not ever even posted a question because most of the time they are so mean to new people. I am totally put off by the whole thing. It would also be a lot different if it was on my own computer and not through some ssh prompt.

I mean I am a smart guy but I cannot teach myself how to be a server admin in terms of things like DNS overnight. It isn't like I am not reading hundreds of pages worth of manuals. I just don't understand the language they are speaking. At least I undestand how DNS works now if only I could understand how it is configured.

This is not even a fun project anymore. It makes me sick.

Here comes PHP

image

In truth I am having a lot of fun compiling all the stuff I wanted

I didn't even end up using one rpm. Everything was configure, make, make install. It seriously took all night but worked without a hitch. MYSQL 4.1, PHP 5.0.3 , ming, Pspell, GD, Soap, XML, XMLRPC, IMA.

I got a VPS account

I finally broke down and got a Virtual Private Server account that lets me configure and install whatever software I want. The problem is that I have to configure and install all the software I want. He is aspell compiling. Thankfully, (e:ajay) taught me about this last month. Soon the site will be all in my control.

Adelphia Woes Continued

[inlink]scud,82[/inlink] (e:scud) re you sure that the problem is between adelphia and the modem or do you have a router in between. If so, it could be that the ocmputer is losing connection iwth the router instead of the modem losing connection with adelphia. In that case it would all check out find on their end but your computer would be online.

I hate dealing with them, although I do have this one really funny story. I called in the middle of our first big party on elmwood at the lafayette house. The network was down , or so I thought, and I was so angry that people couldn't post to the site from the party. Turned out that someone had accidentally kicked the ethernet cable out of the router. When the operator asked me to test and see if the computer was connected to the cable modem I realized that the router wasn't and felt like such an idiot that instead of just telling her I went through the entire 20 minute diagnostic phone call with the shut it down, wait a minutes, turn it back on , restart the ocmputer crap. I just pretended to do all that because I couldn't tell her how dumb I was that I hadn't checked the cable.

Jeff Weise School Shooting

Are school shootings becoming normal in America? Someone should have dealt with this kid before it got to such a dangerous point. These are some quotes from a cbc article

"He looked like a cool guy, and then I talked to him a few times," Thunder said. "He talked about guns and shooting people." . . . Weise cultivated a dangerous appearance, including sculpting his hair to look as if he had devil horns. "It looked like he was trying to be evil," . . . dressed in black and wrote stories about zombies, may have posted messages on a neo-Nazi website expressing admiration for Adolf Hitler and using the handle "Todesengel" - German for "Angel of Death."



Is that not a little weird to be a native american neo-nazi? Why did no one stop him at that point. Where were the teachers and the school guidance councilors. He also supposedly posted this animation and some others. See the story below. Warning, it is graphically violent cartoon.

On Wednesday, TheSmokingGun.com reported that Weise posted a computer animation on a multimedia website in October, Newgrounds.com, that showed a gunman shooting four people, blowing up a squad car and committing suicide.

The animation was accompanied by a photograph of Weise and a description of him as "nothin' but a Native American teenage-stoner-industrialist."



That happens to be the same description that he uses for himself in his livejournal. I decided to find his livejournal and got this - it only has 3 entries but it is clear that he is hurting. maybe someone should have noticed.

Potato Chip Advertisment

I was working on the fivev project with cassie when I noticed her potato chips had advertisements printed on them (see below.) I hope this isn't the beginning of extreme food based text advertising.

image

image

She also told me her kids have fruit roll ups that when pressed on their tongue print stuff in food coloring on it.

image

As if their wasn't already enough dye in fruit rollups! Kids of course then want to stick out their tongues. This could end up being so sick if companies convince kids to convince their parents to let them use their bodies as advertising space. What is worse is that the body being used for the advertisment doesn't really receive any reward or gain. I mean the people selling their bodies for advertising space on ebay are at least getting money for it.

An another note is this the halon gas you were talking about (e:shawnr) . And why do we need it in the CFA if it is so deadly.
