Recent circumstances have obliged me to pay closer attention to our web sites and associated blogs. In the process of doing that, I realized that our sites have been running for years now on the same hosts and that it is time to migrate them to better hosting.
I’m not changing hosting companies, just moving to newer servers with better software. We’ll be paying the same for hosting and I have confirmed with tech support that they would be migrating the sites in the future anyway. So might as well do it myself to have full control over the process.
All that is fine and that project is now well underway. But whenever I sit down to do one tech thing, my mind starts wandering around looking for more tech things to do. This is one thing that made me a good test engineer and it also helps rekindle my interest when I’ve been away for a while.
So I have let this urge drag me around a bit. I have now scrounged enough space in my room to set up my older desktop system to use as a tech playground. Nothing vital runs on that system anymore so I’m free to try anything that catches my interest. I’m going to start by experimenting with different Linux setups to refresh my knowledge and get back up to speed on the platform. Not sure where I’ll go with that, but that’s kind of the point.
Could be fun. I’ll let you know as it develops.
