LISA08 – day 1

I’ve now finished my first day at the LISA conference. It has been quite interesting, and I have a lot of input I have to filter and digest.

In the morning, I attended a training program called “Management 101: Effective Communication Tools for Sysadmins.” It was basically about communication, with your boss, your colleagues, users and everyone else you get in contact with as a System Administrator. They provided us with some tools to improve ones ability to communicate more effectively, both ...

VPSPro status

As some of you may already know, we’ve had plans for launching a new product called VPSPro. It’s actually beefed up VPS’s with the option to run Windows on it. We think they will complement our VPS product well.

We’ve now deployed the first node for running VPSPro instances, and the next one is being deployed as of this writing. We’ve had some problems with the installation of Windows on the first instances. Windows Server 2003 is not a problem, but ...

New mx setup

Many of you customers have used our outgoing mailrelay server mx01.fab-it.dk. It is a server that handles two simple things: Relaying mail for those servers that can’t handle that on their own, and doing DNS lookups for hosted, dedicated and virtual servers.

Last week, while I was away on an extended weekend, the server was so hard on work, that our surveilance system’s alarm bells was ringing frequently. I couldn’t do much from where I was, so it wasn’t until this ...

Weblog theme – continued

It’s been a couple of months since I announced that we were working on a new theme for the blog, and nothing has happened yet. Well, not on the surface anyway.

Because actually we have tried to take the layout from our website, and convert it to a blog theme, but it just didn’t work. Our website’s layout doesn’t fit a weblog well. So we’re thinking about making a completely different theme for this blog.

Blog theme

Because we’re very eager to get this blog in the air, we’ve actually started posting before our own blog theme is finished. As one of the first assignments, we’ve asked our new employee, Jacob, to make a theme that resembles our public website.

Until it’s finished, we’ll use one of the themes from WordPress’ themes directory. Hope you’ll bear with it until Jacob is finished.
