Finally my website is back online, what took so long? Well, firstly I was in the process of moving from Michigan to Wisconsin, a six hour drive and then I have been debating whether to host the website at home or get it hosted somewhere. Hosting at home would have costed me a 12 month commitment to a 1.5Mbps/512k DSL service and a few extra bucks, whereas by getting it hosted somewhere I can get 3Mbps service at home with no commitment (with a few ports blocked). I ended up not hosting the website at home because that seemed like the better option. Surely I won’t have as much control as I did before but after thinking about this I guess I won’t mind that too much (atleast for now).
Lately I have been very busy messing with Linux and setting up things here and there. I think I am getting much better at it and getting a hang of the whole deal. All of this has costed me quite some time and here is my justification for it: I am a computer scientist and this is a computer :). You might ask why not do all this on Windows? Bottomline, Windows is much easier. For the first timers setting up wireless in Linux can take quite some time (~four or five hours) but by the time you are finished you will know quite a lot about; how wireless internet works, terminology, etc. After my last experience I think I know whats going on and I can probably setup wireless in a few minutes. Note that your mileage will definitely vary because there are way too many variables. Oh well, on to the next task.
