Serenity Now! Standards

six flags, take two.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Having a Six Flags’ season pass is great. We can make a last minute decision to go to Six Flags in the afternoon or after dinner, and that is what we did on Saturday. Figuring the park would start to slowly empty at 5pm, well we were mistaken, but perhaps it was because we just happened to choose the dayof Gospel Fest. Yeah, just our luck. Church busses, vans everywhere. Ok, I can deal with that, but the lines were crazy. And I am guessing “Thou shall not jump lines” was not in the Ten Commandments, because there would have...

the art of php include().

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Let’s face it, no one wants to make several changes to the same portion of a web page when you have static information/pages. Enter php include(). If you have a common header, footer, block of information that needs to be on multiple pages and the thought of only editting something once instead of on multiple pages, php include is for you!

I am back from a quick trip to my annual family reunion/home/Penn State. I got a lot of driving in (1400 miles) and I had a lot of interesting conversations with some family members. I sometimes forget that I am related to hardcore Republicans and people that say “well some things that are mentioned in the bible are already starting to happen”, but they are my family. No euchre or horsehoe trophy this year, but I am confident Amy and I will be a force to reckon with next year in horseshoes, and my euchre partner could not be any... Read More » Read more

why I use Mac OS X client on my Xserve for web serving needs.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

I was recently asked to defend my decision to run OS X Client on my Xserve and I thought others might like to know why as well. Changing the IP. I have written about this before. I have a mission critical web server. I want to upgrade the OS or the hardware, so for maximum up time, I configure my new server with a temporary IP, then when everything is ready and tested, I shutdown the mission critical server, change the IP on the new server, and everything and everyone is happy. Less than a minute of downtime. I am... Read More » Read more
