Weight and Stuff Report – 8 March 2015

Shock, horror, another drop today.

As is more or less usual for a Sunday, I’ve been having a quiet day doing mundane things like taking rubbish and recycling out, filing bits of paper and beating up my virtual server. That’s the thing that delivers Losing it to its huge[1] audience, and which has been a bit naughty lately.

After tweaking a few things and adjusting some others, I decided that it was time to do something I’ve been putting off for a while: upgrade to the latest distribution of the version of Linux running on the server. Now this is a moderately simple process – edit one file, run a few commands, and maybe answer Y or N a few times. But the last time I tried, I ended up with a non functioning MySQL installation, and ended up restoring from the backup I’d taken earlier. I eventually spun up a new server and migrated sites across. But this time, it all went much more easily. It took a while, which will be why your favourite site[2] may not have been available for a while this afternoon. But after all the updating and the traditional reboot, it came back up, and now has a shiny new and up to date (and more to the point, supported with patches) version of Debian.

But enough of such things. Here’s yet another photo from last week’s Quayside walk:
