03-2017 Civil War Reenactment at the AGSEM


Well… I’m sure glad that we finally did go to witness a ‘Civil War Reenactment’ event at the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista yesterday. I’ve never been much of one for any of these “mach gun fights” or the like as it always seemed to be just some cheesy thing to me. As a child in school I was never really interested in history either but my fascination with it grew over the years. Particularly when it pertains to major national events such as the Civil War, WW I and WW II. The Civil War was perhaps one of the most significant events in American history.

Money has been really super tight over the past fours and it seems to just keep getting worse. Although we’re certainly not the only people riding in this boat and many of the chapter members are as well… everyone thought this would be a lot of fun. So over the next few weeks following that last meeting we got the carpet cleaned up along with the house in preparation for the event.

01-18-2017 Save My Server

So… you run a small business and you’re on a tight budget and can’t quite upgrade your local server just yet. Or… you’re in the middle of some major software deployment that is preventing you from upgrading your servers. When suddenly… one (or more) of them starts to go pear-shaped on you! It would seem as though you’re caught between a rock and hard place!
