I’ve been collecting digital media files ever since online storage became cheaper than burning them to DVD. The shelf life is longer and I have better chances of knowing where the hell my files are. Well shelf life should be better, if you actually have a decent setup, which I’ve learned over time is something you should spend some time planning. I managed to loose pretty much most of my digital life prior to 2007 when I foolishly setup a non redundant Logical Volume Management (LVM) system on my man file server ‘max’ which was running Gentoo. After the failure, I did the initial recovery and then I turned the machine off and let it sit for almost 3 years before I tried to resurrect the box and attempt a proper recovery.
After more than 20 redesigns and design tweaks I am finally launching my own personal site. I’ve had a lot of people ask me about a range of topics but I’ve not had any central location to answer. I get some of the same questions so I’m hoping to use my site as somewhere that I can document these processes and maybe teach someone something along the way.
I have been putting all my creative energies into launching client sites, working on designing and writing for DanceNode or managing our radio show. It’s time that I share some of the knowledge I’ve been acquiring over the years in the land of Geek, Music, food and more. I may occasionally write something reflective but generally I’ll be using this as my geek log and recipe book. This site is very much a work in progress, so if you find anything that isn’t functioning as it should, please let me know via the contact form.
