YC Newfoundland 2007

Posted by Phil on Oct 8, 2007 in Phil's Thoughts

Signal HillI travelled to St. John’s, NL (that’s Newfoundland and Labrador for those of you outside Canada) to represent Tyndale at YC Newfoundland.  It was  a tremendous experience.

There were around 3500 kids there from all over the province.  They were all really interested in education and specifically Tyndale.  We got a ton of great exposure and had some really great conversations.  Siobhan, an Admissions Counselor did a terrific job connecting with people and telling them about our school.

I got a little sight-seeing in.  Mostly through geocaching, but we also did get a chance to run up to Signal Hill, thanks to Gary (an admissions counselor for a rival university).  Make sure you check out the Photo Album.

There was a lot of great music including Sonicflood, Manafest, Krystal Meyers, Geoff Moore, Salvador and others.  We got to ride on the same plane with Manafest on the way out and we came back with speaker David Nassar.


Server Upgrade

Posted by Phil on Oct 8, 2007 in Phil's Thoughts

For those of you that frequent my websites, I have finally upgraded my server.  That will make viewing the photos faster and a better overall experience.

For those interested, I used to run a Pentium II 450 with 1 GB of ram.  It was a great server, but had been retired by Tyndale several years ago due to lack of processing power.  It has served me well, but recent software upgrades have started to show that it maybe a newer server would operate faster.

The new server is an AMD 64-bit dual core machine with 2 GB of ram.  Its really nice.  Another side benefit is that this new machine is a LOT smaller, quieter and generates a LOT less heat and uses a LOT less power.  So its wins all around.
