server died AGAIN

So the VPS that host’s this site died again(looking at you chicagovps.net ) and I can not find any of the newer backups I made 🙁 so this one will have to do, I guess I can give a quick recap of events lol.

I had to send back my Asus graphic card due to it artifacting and so far the RMA process has gone good, I am hoping they contact me some time this week with a update.

I have not done any fresh water fishing the season yet as it has been very wet and cold, I have been a bit lazy much to the dismay of my dad and fishing buddy so I guess I should make some plans soon.

Gaming
still playing Planetside 2 even if I am starting to tire of the bugs that got added in the latest round of patch’s(most fixed) and its not helping with the server balance in my time zone, also the 4th faction is pushing the balance to silly levels. I think its time to put a time limit of say 15 minutes on faction swapping

Site is back but lost some stuff

Well I got the site back up and running after the SolusVM exploits that affected my VPS provider (and many other providers) messed up my stuff.

ChicagoVPS has been outstanding in there communication though out the downtime and had things up and running quick and have taken steps to nail things down to stop it happening again. They just added the ability to reset up your container again(server) and have even added more OS to pick from but they are namely just new versions of each OS so saves you time not having to manually upgrading them.

I used wordpress Duplicator to back up the site but was lazy and had no newer backups,
oh well lol, I guess I could retype out some of the stuff maybe. I will now make more backups not that I use this site much.

Things to do are reinstall Team speak 3 server, not that it gets used much and set-up my emails again as some of them was used on job applications as second email address.

tech stuff

well this blog is hosted on ChicagoVPS that don’t have the best of reputation on
Low End Box but for the price i could not complain and so far other than very small
bit of down time it has been very good.
