Just writing something…

Okay… I didnt get anything done yet, so i just write what i did the last week or better: what im doing…

I was at the zoo in bremerhaven with my girlfriend last week. i took plenty of pictures but they arent done yet (they are analogue, so they are still in development), so i cant show them, although i think some of them are pretty good.

Then i went stargazing – the comet Neowise (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C/2020_F3_(NEOWISE)) was still visible and i went with my friends and we took some great photos (digitally, of course). I got the permission to share them here – i will do that in another post. It was a really great night for stargazing!

Then the 3D-Printer broke down again. And i fixed it… again. Honestly: I cant count the number of times i had to repair this damned thing. The nozzle was clogged again. Its the 3rd nozzle in two weeks (and the last one we had). I just replace the whole thing now, because its really much effort to get a really badly clogged nozzle working again. (If i get called because its clogged, freeing it with a small needle has been tried, normally and didnt work…) So… Its working again.

I forgot something, probably, but whatever… I will, however, post one or two nice pictures of the comet and the milkyway in my next post – maybe later today!

SSL and HDD – Two completely different Problems that used up way too much time today…

Originally I wanted to write a howto (naturally i write them mainly for my future self) but as its very late i am too lazy for writing it right now…

But… the already mentioned friend of mine and i are using the same server and because we have different websites on it at the same time we use vhosts on the apache webserver.

I had already configured ssl for the existing domains and he bought a new domain… i think you can already guess where this is going.

he wanted to have working ssl on his new domain. well… i spent about 8 hours today fixing the setup because it went to not working at all… at least now i know every possibility how to not configure vhosts with ssl… AND at least one that works and is relatively clean and not awful.

Other things that happened: My HDD is breaking down. Naturally i have a backup, but as it is the hdd with the not much used data, my backup is on tape so i decided, as the hdd isnt broken down yet (it spins down every now and then und has read-errors) i just copy the data from there. if its not working i still have the backup, and as i do the backups monthly (mid of month) i can be sure to get all the data if it works. As its always automatically unmounting its a very timeconsuming process to find the right arguments to copy the data, but it seems to be working right now…

As i was fixing my computerissues anyway i did a system-upgrade of my desktop-pc as well – for good measure… 😀

Now im going to sleep – my pc is working and that usually lets me sleep very well as i know at least some”body” is doing work then…
