The random rantings of a concerned programmer.

Hi, thanks for signing up for the Friends of J-List affiliate program. Nice idea for a site! 4chan is so chaotic, I can never find anything. We have a close relationship with the 4channelers and would love to be more visible to the readers. So we think is great.

FUCK YEAH $EAKING!

Shuugo has gotten a crazy amount of money from JList since he started using them last month. “Crazy” as in like $50 over the month (I only get $30/month from AdBrite). So I’m going to start cycling in JList ads too (which pay commission, not CPC/CPM) in the hope that my dream of 4scrape paying for itself will someday come to fruition.

If it does I’m going to lease another server and put 4porn back up. BECAUSE FUCK YEAH PORNOGRAPHY.

oh god I have no money and I just ordered 4 1TB WD drives (and put the $400 bill on my credit card). Going to throw them in the case I bought over a year ago with an E7200, then run vinum + geli on them (with UFS, I think — I still don’t trust the ENTERPRISE-QUALITY ZFS). (Noting quietly that an improved version of vinum with RAID5 support is going into CURRENT soon).

According to my pay schedule, I should be back in the black on the 31st.

I was lying shit-faced in bed last night and realized, hey, I don’t ever have much fun with money. I’m a fucking tightwad. And I’m a tech guy — I should have all kinds of crazy tech bullshit lying around (instead of just a beaten-up Dell laptop from 2004). I figure a beefy fileserver is probably a good start.

Now I just need to download 3TB of pornography.
