Site ported to WordPress

Posted on May 21st, 2013

So, this site moved again. This time one relative of mine set up couple of web servers and I did some configuration on them. I don’t know was that payment or good will, but he let me put this site to those servers. So I am free riding now. :-) I tried to pull Typo3 to new servers but it got complicated when I should have upgraded and moved site at the same time. Also I had some trouble with typo3 previously so, decided to do some extra work and convert all to WordPress. So here we are. If you can read this conversion was success.

I have plans to upgrade layout to something better, we will see, years seem to roll as my previous posts are from 2009…

 



Changing hosting provider again..

Posted on December 27th, 2009

Well, Gandi’s virtual server was nice, but maybe a bit of overkill for my site :-) So this time I desided to go with GoDaddy, thats ~6 euros/month. I have been little suspicious about not having full control over the server but it seems that site works ok. My worst fear was about installing typo3 on GoDaddy’s server, but that went just fine. They seem to allow SSH access, which makes things smooth.

I bought small radio tower at fall. I have been busy with other things, but now I finally got time to pull it up.

New hosting provider

Posted on June 27th, 2009

Everything ends sometime, and so did web server from my old work place. This site has been hosted there last five years. As the server goes down, I had to find new place for hosting. I have been checking out all kinds of services but finally decided to give a try with Gandi’s virtual hosting. It’s actually kind of cool, you can have virtual server running 15 minutes! And after few hours of configuration, you have mail’s and web server running. You have total freedom of configurating it, as you have root access to it. Of course you have to know what you are doing, as this is basic web server installion to linux OS. (several distributions available). Only negative side of this is price, as one share costs ~15 euros/month. Anyone interested on sharing this server (and costs) with me? More about this in here: http://www.gandi.net/hosting/



RC helicopter

I finally give up to temptation and bought one of these: http://www.esky-heli.com/esky-beltcp-v2-green-6ch-rtf-kit-p-4340.html. I did know it is hard to fly, but it really did come to little surprise how hard it really is. Tried it twice, broke it twice.. :-) Well practice goes on…



I am a HAM now..

Posted on January 28th, 2009

Well papers arriver and my call is OH1FNJ. Started project of building my own radio. I plan to use USRP for receiving and sending, but USRP output power is 0,4mW so linear amplifier is needed. That I plan to build myself. Kind of interesting to see how this building project goes. I¬†always hated¬†coils and RF stuff because they are so ‘unpredictable’. For that I mean, long wire acts as a coil, two parallel wires as capasitor, ground is not really a ground if not done propertly. If you add one transistor to this, you will damn sure get oscillator, wanted it or not. Oh well, maybe this is why I get my license. Life is boring if you don’t have challenges, and change to learn something new!-)
