Not Shooting, Not Blogging

December 9th, 2011 by Justin Leave a reply »

Having a kid ended my weekly shooting outings and I kinda stopped farting around with guns all the time so I sorta quit blogging about them.

And then changing my career from “IT Consultant” to “farmer” also upended my life a bit, but I’m still here, and I’m having fun, I just don’t blog about it much.

It’s a weird life. On Tuesday I’m talking with a guy about pumpkin seeds for a new field, varieties, genetic resistance to disease, and the next day I’m virtualizing a 7 year old server that’s on its last legs. Most of what I’m doing is still IT type work as I dig us out of a hole. We’ve always been pretty good about being high-tech at our place but I’m replacing stuff that I originally put in as a kid back in 1997. Other stuff was put in by my youngest brother when he worked there part time while in college. So, there’s a lot of work to do. It’s not bad, for a greenhouse, but it could be better. Honestly we were probably leaps and bounds beyond 98% of other shops before I even signed on. I’m just upping it to the next level.

New Point of Sale system (customizing an open source product), new network, new servers, database fail over, new labeling software, new method for processing payroll, enhancements to our time clock system, system status monitoring software, etc. Some big things, some little things, but it’s a lot of work.

But, it’s fun.

    The foremost and maybe most important septic tank maintenance Portland technique for residents to consider will be draining
    the septic tank of its contents. Instead of, or in addition to, a solid wood paneled door you can install a screen door and enjoy a bug-free view of your yard (provided
    you’ve placed it right for privacy). In general, more people living under the same roof will require frequent
    septic tank pumping service to maintain it clean.

  12. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after
    I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr…

    well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

  13. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
    Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am
    concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard very good things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    But to first comers to the cyber chat, they may probably meet obstacles to getting any further within the first few
    days of trial. It is undeniable that these women would want to
    broaden their horizon. People who live in northern climates are more likely to suffer
    from it.
