If you haven’t noticed I have been doing some reconstruction of by blog, adding some new modules and trying to speed up the load times. The server this site runs on is under quite a heavy load at the moment so things are loading slowly.
The main part of the changes has been behind the scenes, where I have updated the software to use svn releases instead of the ordinary releases in zip/tar.gz format. Also some unused virtual hosts has been eliminated from the mix and a general cleanup. However soon I feel the need to reinstall this server with my new favorite BSD dialect, FreeBSD, to get some of the processing power back. This requires however that some temporary sites that I have flung at my apache installation has to be moved to their ordinary sites. One of these is the research trainee site (www.researchtrainee.com) which should lie directly under the main LTU site. Hopefully this will be done in a few weeks.
On the other site of the etch-a-sketch that is my mind: Todays release of the new House clearly showed that the TV-networks in the states are running out of shows, as todays episode was the Christmas episode. Series that I believe have no more episodes written are: Numb3rs, Greys Anatomy, CSI*, Boston Legal, Criminal Minds to name a few. I could however be wrong and the stations are just hoarding the episodes to manage the sweeps week coming up in February. On average I would suspect that in 1-2 months there are no more scripts that can be filmed, and if the WGA make a deal tomorrow it would probably not produce any new shows until the summer line-up. So were in for the long haul, I fear….
