AC/DC Back in blackAC/DC Back in black

Hello guys, I’m back again. This time with yet another host, yet another country, and yet another layout. I seem to refresh myself whenever I get things back on their feet. This time my good friend Marc Kaldenhoff was kind enough to provide me with some excellent hosting space in Germany, on a decently beefed server. As some of you know, I’ve been unemployed for some time now, while I wait to land my next job.

I’ve got a few really promising opportunities that I’ll get more feedback on within the not-to-distant future. But being out of a job also means that you tend to get a stoppage in income. This means that you have to prioritize what to spend money on and what not to. Unfortunately, my old server had to go as a result of this. This was not something I wanted to do but was forced to.

During this time, I’m very happy that I was contacted by quite a few of my old-time readers asking me what was going on and asking me if there was anything they could do to help me. I want to send a big thanks to you all for this offer, and that you took the time of your precious time to ask what was going on. It really meant a lot to me.

And it also proved to me that I actually had readers just aching for more content. And there will be more content, one coming rather soon. In the process of this new move, I’ve gone over to using Google Apps as my e-mail provider. I’ll lead you through the steps of setting this up and hope that you will find it useful.

I also want to send out thanks to EditDNS for their great and free DNS service, a service that suits me just fine. It has good availability, a good user interface and responsiveness. I used to use them as a back name server service, but after I had to take my old server offline, I’ve gone over to use them as primary name servers, which works just as great. Though, being the geek that I am, I somewhat miss editing the Bind zone files manually in a shell. But as long as it works, everything is fine isn’t it? :)

If there’s anything you’d like to see on this site, please don’t hesitate to contact me with wishes on what you’d like to see. If I find the idea(s) worth writing about, I will do it. I’m always open to more ideas and broadening my horizon.

Last but not least I want to thank you, my readers, for staying with me and for the fact that you keep coming back. I hope that you enjoy your stay and that I’ll see you frequently in my comments.
