It's Not Magic, It's Work!

2008

I've got a lot of stuff to do this year. Some of it will be fun, some of it will be expensive, and some of it just needs to be done.

  • Replace my current antique Compaq home server, with something more powerful.
  • Upgrade my home server from Debian 3.1 "Sarge" to the current 4.0 "Etch" release or even directly to "Lenny". Until I have new hardware I'm not going to touch the software.
  • Set up proper backups for the data on the home server and the desktop systems. I've got a cheap 0.5TB hard disk and the enclosure is on order.
  • Redesign my web sites, merging them onto my ByteMark server, and look at new blogging software.
  • Scan in and index a shed load of 35mm colour slides and prints. I can either pay a lot of money to some one to do this, or buy a decent slide/negative scanner...
  • Win a million or two on the Premium Bonds, I don't seem to have won yet, so it must be my turn this year!
