You know what is amazing to me… cache. My server has been down for at least a week, probably two, and still I can see all the images on my blog that are hosted on my no-longer-existent web server. 😀

On a good note, I got apache started last night. After fighting with apache2 for about four days. Don’t know why it would not start. Sometimes it gave me an error, sometimes not, depending on what I would change. So I unloaded the apache2 packages and loaded up apace, and viola, it just started.

So now cynthiablue.net is a valid URL once again. 🙂 However, I need to get working on getting everything restored. And of course now both my other 2 machines are off line… gah, when it rains, it sure does pour!

Novice Jumpers Certificate

Well let’s see what’s going on here…

Went to a NADAC trial in St. George last weekend. It was fun. Levi got 3 1/2 Qs out of 10 runs. Not too bad. We still need some major weave poll work. He finished his NJC title, for jumpers. I might even move him to open jumpers. He’s really good at it, so I don’t know if we should keep him in novice for his Jumpers. I’m thinking of moving him now, because he can probably make Jumpers Open time, and since we go to so few NADAC trials, moving up in Jumpers is probably the way to go. Only way to really ever get to Elite and have a hope of a NATCH, if it’s even possible for him. Not sure. But NATCH is just Standard, Gamblers, and Jumpers. And he can do Standard and Jumpers easy (okay not THAT easy but we can do it!). We will need some distance work to get Gamblers going, but once it’s always inside the course, I don’t see why we couldn’t do it!

As for weave polls, the goal is to take 4 polls, a couple tunnels, and Levi and hit a park every day, or almost every day, to see if I can get him to hit the entry in a different location a lot of the time. I want him to hit that entry even when I’m nervous and not sure if he’ll do it. He is really good at class and at home, so maybe going to different places will help out? I hope so!

My server is completely dead. I’m putting up temporary pages through the DNS managers to alert people of this. It’s probably part of the hardware that is fried. Not sure which, yet. I’m going to have to put sections of the burned-out server into a good computer a piece at a time to see what is salvagable. No big deal really but I haven’t had the time since I’ve been out of town. Then I think I’m going to put SuSe pro on the server next time, instead of Red Hat. I could do Fedora, but I’ve already done RH and would like to try something else. Another choice is Mandrake, but Aaron likes SuSe so I’m going to try that first. =)

SQL Problems

Crap. It seems my server is having some SQL problems. And of course I can’t fix it from work, so I’ll have to fix it later. But, tonight I have agility class so I don’t know if I’ll have time to even look at it tonight. Grrrr.

I wonder if it’s time for a new server. I should look at a different operating system that is still being supported. SUSE maybe? Mandrake? Not sure. I’ll have to see how it goes.

All my MySQL sites are down today. A couple days ago, it was only utahdogs.com that was down. Hrmph. I wonder what’s up with the mySQL database. 🙁

10 Hr Days Week

This week I’m going to work 10 hour days and take Friday off. Oh joy. I’m getting to like getting home at 4pm. Today I’ll get home at 6pm. That’s okay, though. This weekend is a NADAC trial in St. George with Levi.

I just hope the weather is good for the drive.
