I've had more computer problems in the last week in relation to my server than I can count. This last 18 hours have been spent dealing with DNS woes -- I don't currently host my own DNS, but I hope to after my DNS provider went down last night and still isn't back up. :S This is particularly irksome because I'm on a very tight deadline with one of the development projects I'm working on...

But that's not what I'm here to blag about. I'm here to blag about a very geeky moment of *whoa* that has been a great moment of stress relief. I do most of my work on my server remotely -- I sit in bed or in a comfy chair or 2000 miles away, and I use my laptop terminal to connect to my server.

So today I was testing some server settings, and I was logged into my server from my laptop. Then from the server's login I logged back in remotely to my laptop (so it was a laptop->server->laptop connection). Then I forgot which terminal was for just my laptop, and instead used the laptop-server-laptop connection to log back into my server -- I now had a laptop-server-laptop-server connection.

In a moment of Keanu-Reaves-whoa, I realized that it could (in theory) go on forever until I ran out of RAM or did something else to bork one of the computers. It was like standing between two digital mirrors going out into infinity.

Okay, not that exciting for most people, but I've had a long day. :D

It's like a video game, except inode entries are getting bumped around instead of pinballs. Yay! :D

I'm a little goofy at the moment, because I've been trying like crazy to get Bespin running on a server under a hybrid custom application that I'm slapping together so that Matt and other members of the CREM development team can edit, test, and make commits to the repository from the web.

Don't ask me how I'll do it...I'm not even sure it will work. Perhaps some of you will be visiting me in a local insane asylum in a week or two.

However, while I take a break and ponder the futility of my undertaking, I wanted to share a thought regarding file location (or relocation), which seems to be the bulk of my troubles for the particular part of the task I'm working on. They're coming to take me away, haha hoho heehee... )
