Another smooth albeit a little slow upgrade to Linux Fedora 12 on this server this morning. Took about 3.5 hours of processing on a very old P4@1.7GHz server.
After that it was another two hours to update the new Operating System.
Looks like it is running well now.

Maybe if I write about it I will remember what time the meeting is better.
The Lennox and Addington Horticultural Society meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7pm in Napanee, at the County Memorial Building, corner of Robert and Dundas St.

We came across this conference coming up in late February with more information from their website:
“Keeping it Local and Sustainable”
Welcome to Eco Farm Day – eastern Ontario’s premier farm conference. Organic, transitional and conventional farmers of field crops, market gardens, and livestock rely on Eco Farm Day for the best training, information, and commerce opportunities. Over 350 people come back every year for the social event, the networking, the positive atmosphere, and the great food!
Friday evening, February 26th, 2010 – organic gala dinner with Wayne Roberts, at 6PM.
Saturday, February 27th, 2010 – full conference with Wayne Roberts at 9AM and 12 workshops.
The Ramada Inn
805 Brookdale Ave., Cornwall, ON.
Not only are the christmas decorations and sales items still available in Canadian Tire (Napanee), but the see racks have been set up as well! I was a little taken aback at the constant moving up date of various holidays (ie christmas retail up in early November and now in late October). Ditto for spring & summer gardening.
Now I know we start our seeds and plants early.. but in January??? Come on!
The server running this website had a problem over the weekend (say from Saturday morning at 9am) but was successfully restarted this morning around 07:45. The static pages worked fine but the dynamic wordpress ones did not. Oh well… reboot and move on.
Now of course, at almost the same time, the allsky camera server is having troubles and the nightly 350+ .FITS images did not get processed and uploaded. Will have to take a look at that later today as well.
Probably a case of needing to be upgraded from Fedora 11 to Fedora 12 at the expense of a few hours and some nice wine.
