    Appreciate it, but the farthest south we are looking at would be Puyallup. Banking on Bonney Lake/Lake Tapps or Edgewood. Apparently we're not the only ones looking there haha

    I have shut down Apache on the old server. That server hadn't been updated since probably 2011, but was still running a couple of active sites. I finally found the time to move those sites to new VMs.

    That means that I'm ready to move my two servers out of Blue Box (my old employer). The old server will come back to my house, and the newer server (which hosts this site) will be moving to my new colo space in Tacoma.


    So, PNWfahren will be down for a few hours, probably this week or next week.

    Just curious - given the nature of the business, is that name an homage to the old phone phreaker hardware?

    So me and the gf are looking for a house to rent and last Wednesday my gf found a killer deal on a house, listed in Craigslist . So she emailed the contact email address. Thursday "Arthur" the owner of the house got back to her, stating that he had moved to Chicago before he could secure a real estate agency to handle the rental and showing. Also he had the keys with him, I was leery after hearing that, but the gf wants a house bad and wanted to go look at the outside anyway.

    Before we went to go look at it my gf did some research on the property and indeed an Arthur owned the house since new and it looked like he had owned several other properties over the years, but all them were now owned by a trust in his name. So Saturday we went by it and it was awesome, but we had questions and I was really leery of not being able to see inside. Also why we were there we discovered a real estate key lock box on the door, which sent up red flags.

    When we got home she contacted "Arthur" that we were interested and he sent a very vague application, that didn't ask anything important. And said once it cleared and he received confirmation of payment he would send the keys via FedEx. So I really stressed to the gf this stunk like a con. So she did more research and found the house listed on a real estate website at twice the price. So my gf contacted "Arthur" about this, he replied that he had been working with them, but dropped them do to fee charges. So she also contacted the real estate agency by email about this.

    No word on Sunday or Monday from either, we both stayed home sick Monday also. So today the gf got a email from "Arthur" asking if we were still interested in the house. So she sent a reply asking questions to keep the lines of communication open. She called the real estate agency and confirmed it was a con, Arthur had been dead for two years. She is working on filing a police report and then a report with the FBI.

    Yeah.. I remember looking for rentals on craigslist and being really careful about only contacting people that didn't raise any flags for me... the same goes for job ads.

    I have gotten both rentals and work through craigslist... it's only as good as the people posting on it though.

    I'm glad you guys didn't fall for it

    Surprising...

    http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-31828184

    ...but not surprised.

    Edit: I've been at my current job longer than Top Gear has been on the air? Wow, I'm officially old.

    Double edit: Not old after all!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Gear_(1977_TV_series)

    Guess the old Top Gear is as old as me.

    Yeah... the current Top Gear is quite new compared to the original Top Gear.

    Shame about the last couple of episodes not airing. That hurts fans. And I don't really care if Clarkson is an ass. Everyone knows he is... and the show wouldn't be the same if he wasn't.

    Yay for migrating really really old PHP sites to new infrastructure

    Trying not to break things, but 5.5 + FPM is a long way from 5.3 & Apache workers

    Crazy! Hopefully he gets nailed. Good on you guys for being vigilant.

    Unfortunately, no... haven't been in the field very long, so I don't have any reliable sources yet. What's going on though? I can try to help, or at least give you an out-side perspective, but I can't promise yet as again, I'm new haha I will ask around with the guys I trust, though, and see if they can recommend someone.

    Agreed. But I think that if anything, this is publicity stunt... whether it happened or not, they're getting more viewers because of it and they will air it. Maybe.

    Joel, have you tried ODB? I know he isnt really in Tacoma, but he is experienced and will travel last time I asked him.

  21. #38971
    I haven't contacted anyone yet.. having someone over on Friday to look at our heat pump first. Then we'll need someone to come troubleshoot, but not fix anything with electrical, until we have more money.. we're trying to gauge costs. So I'm not sure how much it'd be worth having Chris come down.

    Mat.. this is the same sort of issue I've mentioned here before..... breakers flipping upstairs when we turn something on downstairs

    the schwaben ones work ok and so do the chinese throwing stars. if you get either of them, get them from a tool truck. do NOT order them online as you will break them. You want to be able to warranty them fast, so get them from your local snap on, mac, or matco truck.

    anthony, I doubt the FBI will do much. sucks you guys got yanked around. was this a blue house near 24th?

  25. #38975
    Still good for the fbi to know. If they get more people filing they can build a case and maybe even eventually catch the guy
