I was playing with Apache on the linux yesterday and I set it up already its not that hard afterall. And I restarted SSHd and FTPd to go along with the HTTPd. I turned them off long ago for security. And my software firewall I configured and uncommented this and that to get PHP working and everything =) *beams proudly*
I doubt I'll try and sell any hosting space to strangers but at least I can put my few domains up again. It's basically the same price as if I signed up for a dedicated hosting plan with some reseller. And I can upgrade the speed any time I want the ISP guy said. And this local ISP doesn't mind if I run a web server unlike my cable and dial-up ISPs. He said it'll be an extra $30/mo though to have a block of 4 IPs and only two are usable? I still have a bit to learn. Like how to set up BIND to have my custom IPs as nameservers. But I like the idea of having the web sites I own 2ft away from me instead of 1000s of miles away with out telnet/ssh access even like I had with my old host! I'll probably only turn on the SSHd on occassion anyways. I'm kind of paranoid now though that maybe I won't be able to handle the security part. And what if somebody tries to hack into my little domains? -.- that will suck. My slackware is already setup for running daemons though. but maybe I should use freebsd instead of linux? I dunno.
Went out with bf tonight and walked around and got icecream again. We've done that about 3 times this week. I love doing it :D And he doesn't as much but i make him go with me its fun to walk around and the weather has been great lately.
All day I didn't read any C++ stuff or do anything productive really but I watched Fight Club again. I want to for fun make a 2D vampire girl type of game kind of a cross between Final Fantasy and Pokemon but with just one character a girl vampire and possibly with pets? I've never seen a game out there like that and one day I'll make it! I hope. But I have to learn a lot more stuff and read stuff but lately I haven't been reading anything or programming anything :(
I kind of was hoping that this journal would help motivate me to read some C++ stuff. But...maybe tomorrow...
