After having a tiny bit of time to myself today, I used this time somewhat wisely between watching films and working on the 21 year on going project that is my BBS.
Concerningly, it is actually 21 years old and that terrifies the shit out of me. Sans déc.
But the leg work of trying to keep it all in one place has finally been done, I’ve cleaned up the web server on the BBS, redirected domains and started to put together the content on to this site to get it more or less functional. More pressing is that I finally got the SSL certificate installed from StartCom.
I’m in two minds as I really don’t want to lose the current style of the BBS website, because god knows it has been like that forever, but I think I can still keep it around but in a more up-to-date model (here on ec.je) and the classic theme for the actual private BBS areas.
Because one thing I have noticed is that the web site is stale content wise and not great to update, unless in front of a computer. There is also the whole needing to consolidate everything on to ec.je just for my sanity.
Once I can get that fully wrapped up, then I can move back to the more technical aspects, such as keeping dial-up access up, the backend mail servers, finding a way to keep the intra-servers VPN more stable and finally updating the ANSI screens.
Project wise I seem to overwhelm myself a little considering that I don’t have a whole lot of extra time to myself, but I press on. Because when you invest 21 years, it’s probably something you enjoy.
