Re-uploading pictures takes time!

by Waterman981  

I started uploading pictures. It's definitely going to take a bit of time.

But I know I'm missing some pictures that some of you uploaded. If you want to re-upload them (and I hope you do especially if I was there) let me know and I will set up a new gallery account for you.

People I know off the top of my head who had uploaded stuff:
Matt
Holly
Jeff

What is the worst possible thing that can happen to a web server?

by Waterman981  

The hard drive totally crashing. :(

Yup the old drive is now in the trash. I was able to get off most of my web site, but not the photo gallery. :(

So one of these days I'll re-install it and upload the pictures again.

The worst thing is that it was also my email server! :O So I now need to rebuild that part, and hope I can get it restored perfectly.

I'm also thinking I need to get me a RAID card. And put this OS on a RAID 1 Mirror. Yeah, that might be good.

Yet another DVD deal!

To save ya time, the ones I would want are:
Waterworld
Meet the Parents
Van Helsing
Happy Gilmore
and Billy Madison

Shop away! :D

Marker is now up.

by Waterman981  

Over 6 months later, and my Dad's marker was placed today. It looks good. If you're ever in the neighborhood stop by and take a look.

Also of interest... the grass is greener in that spot than anywhere else in the cemetery.

Another DVD deal.

by Waterman981  

DVDPlanet.com has 20% off with coupon: 20offsale and it IS reusable. Coupon good through November 21st. This is NOT usable on pre-orders. I've never ordered from these guys, so I can't say what their prices are like.

I also found a list of codes for DeepDiscount. Usually you can only use a code once, so if you need to do a second order these should work. Note this list is not verified! These are the usual codes, and they usually always work. But no guarantees!

Help on shopping for HD DVD's

by Waterman981  

This is mostly to my family, unless some of my friends want to buy me HD DVD's too. ;)


Usually Amazon has some of the best prices for HD DVD's, but for Warner Brothers movies there is usually a coupon to get them for cheap direct from WB!

For example you can get each of the Harry Potter movies for $17.21 using coupon code NVBM, which is good until November 30th. Great deal! (Please note the 1-5 giftset is not on my ideas list since they are all in cardboard sleeves, rather than plastic keep cases)

EDIT:
UPDATE! DeepDiscount is getting ready to hold their annual 20% off sale! It starts November 9th, and goes through November 25th. This will not work on pre-orders, but it will work on all DVD's and HD DVD's. (And books, CD's, Bookcases, etc.)

Last time it was 20% off one purchase, so be sure to put everything you want on one order!

The code for this sale is:DD1109

Broken forum

by Waterman981  

So it looks like the forum is kinda broken. I did an upgrade a couple days ago but I guess it didn't run very smooth. I'll look at fixing it tonight.

edit, 7pm... ok it's fixed. post away!

Pretty Ferrari!

by Waterman981  

Today on the drive home I followed a Ferrari F430 down Wasatch. That was a pretty car.

Oh yeah, some ideas of Christmas gifts are posted for my family that wants to get their shopping done early.
