Nothing Much

I don’t have much to say today. Got a 2ndary server up over the weekend, to run my mail. Got it running but today it’s down *sigh* I don’t know why. Servers are hard.

UKC Obedience with Lucy this weekend. I have been working with her every day! I hope we do well.

I’m tired and want to go to bed…

Yet Another Light Bulb Joke

How many members of the Bush administration does it take to change a light blub?


One to deny that a light bulb needs to be replaced;

one to attack and question the patriotism of anyone who has questions about the light bulb;

one to blame the previous administration for the need of a new light bulb;

one to arrange the invasion of a country rumored to have a secret stockpile of light bulbs;

one to get together with Cheney and figure out how to pay Halliburton $1 million for a light bulb;

one to arrange a photo-op showing Bush changing the light bulb while dressed in a flight suit and wrapped in an American flag;

one to explain to Bush the difference between screwing a light bulb and screwing the country.

Holiday Tomorrow

Well, life goes on. I have the new web server up, but only with minimal functionality. I have the two photo galleries working okay, which are the most important things. I’m not too concerned with, or, because they are so low volume. But I hope to get at least up pretty soon. I do want to put it on a different computer, though, and I’ll need a power supply for that before I get it going. And I need my mail working too.

I’m jogging again, which is great. Only going a couple miles at a time though, but last night 2 miles was just not enough. It took me only about 25 mins. So I might up it tomorrow to my 2.93 loop through the neighborhood. I’ve only been taking Levi, ’cause Chase needs to understand loose leash walking first. So I work with Chase after my run with Levi.

I had surgery on my mouth last week. Yuckola. I had three gum grafts. They take gum from the roof of your mouth and graft it onto teeth. Three teeth on my right side. I guess my gums were receding really bad. Geesh, it sucks getting old. I totally understand the saying “Youth is wasted on the young.” I need some of that youth!

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 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. =)
