Here Already

Well, it appears that things are growing just fine over here at DreamHost That was the fastest and least painful DNS change I ahve ever experienced. I think things were only down for a matter of a couple of hours.

Codefin.net is now ready to grow into its new space, complete with a version of PHP that will let me continue to work on the podcast RSS writer. Hopefully, I will get some time to work on that this afternoon.

Last night I spent most of the evening playing online with friends, watering the lawn, and getting awstats installed and running here on my website. Having shell access to the servers at DreamHost is really nice. I didn't like their stat tool, so I was free to install my own. Though they won't help out with the technical stide of third party installs, there is a forum and a wiki where many members have posted detailed instructions on how to do various tasks-- like installing and compiling your own PHP, or installing awstats. I even set up my first ever cron job last night.

Things are good.
