Norwegians make music with fridges.

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Strangely, I watched this after James posted the lyrics on my facebook. Then I watched Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel in which the song was sung by that guy in the pub bathroom. Now its stuck in my head for ever.

Oh and that one guy shows his ass…did I fail to mention that.

Amazing Modern Warfare 2 Knife throw

Monday, November 16, 2009

I haven’t really had much of a chance to play Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, but this is still impressive:

There’s a lot of amazing/weird kills in Halo but I never really thought to look for the same type of videos with CoD. I saw this over at CAD and had to save it somewhere :].

Carl Sagan – Auto-tuned

Thursday, November 12, 2009

This video is just.. awesome. Auto-tune is more popular now than it’s ever been, and if you want to hear about it the nice folks at Know Your Meme will help you out! Check out the video below someone remixed of Carl Sagan.

You know who Carl Sagan is, right? You better. Whoever made this video did a pretty good job.

“A still more glorious dawn awaits, not a sunrise, but a galaxyrise. A morning filled with 400 billion suns, the rising of the Milky Way”

I don’t think this is actually Auto-tune, but watching all the videos with auto-tune just reminded me of Portal and the credits song. So for good measure, the ending song from Portal(Stay Alive):

Girls playing a giant piano

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

I’m not really sure what song this is, but it’s pretty famous. It’s pretty neat except for when the audience starts to clap along like they’re line-dancing or something weird. Two girls playing a giant piano:

Switching hosting services

Sunday, November 1, 2009

Today I switched the dns for thesh17.com to point to a new VPS. I’ve had thesh17.com on dreamhost for a long time and it’s done well, but has been pretty sluggish the last few months. I’m still keeping my dreamhost service active since I have a few other websites hosted on it, and like the idea of having an extra place to keep everything backed up.

I purchased a Linode VPS about a week ago, and so far it’s pretty awesome. They’ve done a great job with how they have their provisioning is set up and everything. I installed a basic CentOS set up and a few tweaks. After the dns finishes propagating and all of the traffic goes to the new server, I’ll do some apache/mysql tuning and possibly switch PHP to fastcgi. I’m also considering switching to lighthttpd instead of apache, but haven’t used it enough to want to try yet.

Anyway, if you’re seeing this post then it means you’re already loading the site from the new server. Everyone else should within the next 24-48 hours. In the mean time, the site will stay up on both servers.

If anyone runs in to any random errors or problems, shoot me an e-mail: johntash [at] thesh17.com

Edit: Apache’s been swapping like crazy most of the day and would keep bringing the load up to 140+. I tuned the process/thread limits down quite a bit and it seems to be okay so far. Hopefully it can still handle the traffic it was getting though.

Search and Replace using VIM

Sunday, November 1, 2009

I always forget little things like this.       Today I changed the dyndns hostname I’ve been using on a server, and needed to update my Apache vhost .conf file to reflect the new domain.      There’s only about 10-15 virtual hosts in this file, but I still didn’t want to manually edit it.    I’m lazy.

vim 90_bac.supercoolname.tld.conf

Once you’re in vim, it’s super-easy to do a find and replace.     This is the command I ran:


%s tells vim to search through the entire file.

/g tells vim to replace every instance of bac.supercoolname.tld with bac.evenbettername.tld

There’s a ton of other useful stuff you can do with regular expressions, but this is something I forget a lot when I don’t use it frequently.
