Very Strange DNS Issue

My Chunkhost server got all messy

For some reason I had an issue with my Chunkhost server that hosts www.technobadger.com, my empty forum. So I had to restart the system a couple of times to get it working again. I took the opportunity since its mostly a graveyard over there to upgrade the vBulletin on there to the latest patch and get ssl setup correctly.

Daily Workout, Day 1 Complete

I’m back to trying to do P90X3 on a daily basis and today just finished Total Synergistics during lunch and it was tough. But since I had done two months of X3 before I stopped, I know what I’m capable of and want to get back there. Up tomorrow: Agility X.

Today’s weight: 218 lbs thanks to whiskey last night.
