Lazy to the core

So there’s a good explanation of why my site hasn’t been up for the better part of two weeks. I’m lazy. See, the webserver is the only computer I left at my folks place. And every so often, because it doesn’t have a UPS, it gets restarted, rebooted, or just plan stops working. This wouldn’t be a problem if the server was convenient or if I knew how to make programs start up when linux starts.

Words just aren’t coming out so great right now. I’m sure the two or three sentences before don’t make sense.

So yes, anyways, it really boils down to me being lazy. I’m just hoping that when Kate and I move out we’ll be able to afford some sort of high speed internet.

One way to get a program to start up when Linux boots without mucking around with runlevels is to put the command in /etc/local.rc (or is it /etc/rc.d/local.rc ?). That works on RedHat/Fedora, at least. In Gentoo, put it in /etc/conf.d/local.start

:) But that's only for when you get really motivated, I suppose.
