Next Sunday The World Will Go Away
« on: June 16, 2005, 12:10:40 pm »
With the close of the school year nearing, I though I would update the UnitedSpongeBobers with some information on some of my plans for the near future.  One of the main projects I will be doing is converting this server from Debian 3.1 to Gentoo 2005.0.  This will take place next Sunday (not this Sunday but the one after).  The server will be down all of Sunday!

For the tech savy, I will be moving to an Apache 2 pre-fork install with PHP 5.0.4.

Also, I have some plans to introduce a feature that many of you may really like.  Think <yourname>@unitedspongebob.com.  More info will come after the server OS change.

There's a way to set it up but it's hard to explain. It would be better if I could talk it through to you but since you live no where near me...thats impossible :P

Anyways, I got a question for you...when you move the server to Gentoo, will it make it faster or something? Whats the difference between the 2?

One of the main differences will be the ability to highly custamize the OS. I will be doing a stage 1 install of Gentoo, so almost everything is controllable. It should also be a bit faster. The biggest reason is just for a reinstall in general. When the server OS was origionally installed, Layered Tech (the company I pay for it) installed Debian through one of their images, and I dislike may of the ways it was settup. It is not currently expandable enough to do anything worthwhile.

What will I do that sunday! Hopefully the server will be improved and faster with Gentoo.

In order to make it through the world one needs some insanity.
