Driving me NUTS

09/25/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet

I awoke this morning to see a message from our server that our web server had failed. But when I logged into the machine, it showed the web server humming along just fine. Normal debugging showed no problems.

But I couldn't connect to oub blogs nor to our wiki pn the press subdomain; though I could get to everything else serverd up by our web server - main web pages, other subdomains. But my browser wasn't giving me any error messages when trying to connect to something under press.teleinteractive.net, just "loading" - never timing out, never showing anything.

So, hmm... :crazy: "Crazy", I thought... Perhaps, even though the last changes we made to the various web server configuration files were several weeks ago, that an update that I did on Friday to another package on the server was somehow causing an "infinite loop" to be happening as the web server stepped through those various configuration files. So, I started going through that debugging.

My partner sent me an IM, and in describing the problem to her, we discovered that she was having no problems getting to anything from our server at all.

I then tried different browsers, IE, Opera, Netscape - all fine. |-| No, no, no... All those hours debugging the server to find out that Firefox needed to be restarted on my laptop.

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
