What the. . . ?

I’m trying to set up and ftp server on my machine here.

This machine reaches the internet through a router, so I configured the router to talk to dyndns. the router forwards ports of my choosing.

I set up IIS, change the port to 2001 for extra security, and try to connect to it via a simple, reliable ftp program like WS_FTP 6.0 1 (before they tried to make it all weird and heavy and snazzy. No snazz for me, thank you.)

I get the following response from the IIS server:

Connection CLOSED???? WHY??

It turns out the answer is that I’m trying to use a port other than the default port 21.

It turns out that IIS 5.1 ONLY works if you set the port to 21. Isn’t that weird?

Wow! WordPress really did it this time.

They totally overhauled the UI for this site. And it, at first glance, seems fantastic.

It seems they’ve fixed a lot of the little annoyances that were in the previous version of WordPress. As usual, very Ajax-y too.

Anyway, I’m currently reading about Hibernate because I want to start using it at work.

Sunday at 6:30pm is the only time I have to do research on how to better do my 9-to-9 job —

Well, I couldn’t read at any other time. I’m still working on finishing Super Metroid for SNES.

Jeez. Do I suck, or is programming just really really involved?

Anyway, in Hibernate Quickly, Nick Heudecker says:

Persistence
Data that oulives the process that created it.

Great def, and I just had to share it with ya. Seems like this is a great book so far. Amazon reviews only give it 3 stars, but Amazon reviews aren’t always accurate.

This book and Walsh’s DirectX book really get smashed pretty unfairly.

Anyway, anyway.
