new server updates and what to expect


General Talk

downloading important files from the server "just in case'

almost 2 million files so far and nearly 1 tb left to go..at least

i hope i have room on my drive for it all

i hope this isn't causing any slowness

I've throttled it back a bit cause my home nets not that great

but its likely to take a few days to complete

good news is the server to server transfer should only take a number of hours ..but that still will be most of a day at least

will update this as i progress

tomorrow i will order it and should have it here to start setting up by wed at latest..i think

8 months of neglect


Help! Save My Dreads

vicki was thinking of selling a microfiber pillowcase  cause she used 1 and it really helped a lot

but yea the cuticles and pores react the same way to temperatures

in that case its no big mystery that the oiliness is the 1 and only real concern

1 thing you can try wich id give it at least 1 try

wash with hot (i know usually recommend cold)  washing the scalp real well then finish with a mind numbing cold rinse ..cold as you can handle for as long as you can handle

the idea is to open those pores up clean them out well then  seal them up tight with the freezing cold so they wont pump out oils like crazy

you can make a tea out of thyme..fairly strong to spray on the scalp and leave on (smelling somewhat like a pizza) thyme supposedly helps regulate oil production...but wont happen overnight  you might have to do this  for weeks to see results the cold  i hope you will see improvement right away

new server updates and what to expect


General Talk

well its official, monday we are purchasing a shiny new server! it will also have more power, more speed (we had 2 options, more, or...1/2...i went with more)

over the next week i will be setting the server up, configuring it migrating the sites to it and then taking it to a nearby server far where it will be colocated then every site will be tested in a non live environment (by changing my local .host file to point to the new server) once i verify everything is working corectly, i will start switching over  the dns

dns can take awhile to propegate so i will make a post on the new server announcing the new server, and 1 on the old server announcing we changed servers

once i verify everyone i can contact indeed is seeing the new server  i will do a final re-sync in case anything was posted on the old server during propagation

i have requested (and I hope they accept) that when the old server cancellation date arrives (the 10th of next month..about) that they pull it from the rack and set it aside  without reclaiming and wiping the data for a few days till i give them the all clear

I am going to work as fast as i can to get it up long before this date however as right now videos will not convert after uploading.. an issue that will be fixed by moving to the new server

I have begun downloading extra backups of important files already, just to have spares on my hard drive if needed

bear with me as this is my 1st time setting up a linux server  mostly on my own (i will have help from 2 volunteers if i get stuck)

well your excessive oiliness is making it slippery and sections fall apart easily this is the only gel id think  isn't bad in dreads because of how its made its not going to build up or  bind  it all together like glue, instead it makes the hair just a tiny bit stiffer not slippery so sections resist being torn apart by evrry gentle breeze

what youd do is  dip 2 fingers in put that dab by the roots then wrap your hand around the section gently dragging it down with a SLIGHT twisting motion

your not wanting to  twist it tight  just  twist so the section pulls together

keeping the sections together between washes  can help get it knotting up

most people don't need the extra help..you might benefit from it

just know the karma scent has a strong pine like smell..i like it.. but its strong and people sensitive to smells might not

the scentless might be a better everyday option especially if you have a close quarters work environment

your already  doing all you can with the best of the best  and its still too oily to dread so this is absolutely worth a try but before committing you can always request a sample if your ordering shampoos soon ..or wait and see what she suggests about the oiliness which is the biggest issue..this wont correct that issue but may counteract its effects enough to make a difference

hers are amazing but u have 2 very diferent hairtypes

that dreads thick..but not huge

you know the 1 and only diagnostic question i neglected to ask in chat was sleeping habits  wich can affect dreading  sometimes switching sides of the bed with your wife can  help the areas not dreading to dread..ofcourse the oiliness is a big big factor still

but little things like how you sleep can make a difference
