[[Oracle]] upgrade

I upgraded [[Oracle]] this weekend to have a 500gb hard drive in it. I got the drive, a Seagate SATA II 500gb drive for $107 at Frys. The sale ends today, 10/2, so I decided not to pass it up. Now I store all my music on that drive, and am using the 450gb RAID of 120s to store my movies that I haven’t, or can’t, burn to DVDs. That frees up a drive I can dedicate to just Game ISOs and get it off my Downloads drive that I store OS installations, and other software installation files that I don’t want to go find.

Things are going smoother on [[Oracle]] now, but they’re not so smooth with my network itself. On the inside of the network things are working fine, but the public IP is the problem. It ends in a 0 and I believe that’s keeping me from accessing the freeformfrog.com web server. I think it’s seeing the 0 and thinking that my IP is invalid or a non-existing IP address, so it drops the request. Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t know what else it could be.

I have tried to unplug the modem to let the lease expire, and waited an extra 6 hours for it to grab a new one, but I ended up with the same IP. I may have to try that tactic during the day time when people are more likely to be plugging in a new modem to their network.

Right now I’m running an nmap -sP command over the IP range from my public gateway through the 255 of my ip address, to see what ips are down or available so I can try to manually assign myself an address. Charter is not being very helpful with changing my IP address, so I’m going to help myself.

This week, I feel different about the world, and stuff…like I’m ready to take it on and punch it in the face with my teck skills.

I enjoy getting different systems to talk to each other, coming up with ways to mimic human processes using technology, and explaining how complicated things work.

Of my many blogs, this one is purely about the technology projects, ideas, and solutions that I have come across in my internet travels. It's also the place for technical updates related to my other sites that are part of The-Spot.Network.

As I was typing this, apparently you can’t include linux commands in your body text, because the server reads them and tries to execute them. I tried the n map command and had to put some bold open/close tags in the middle of the word for it to post.
