I Have Returned

Like everybody else in the country, I was visiting family over Thanksgiving. I had planned to remain in touch through the week and maybe even do a bit of blogging, but just a couple days into my trip I lost contact with my computer in Oregon.

The reason was simple: my IP address changed. This is Verizon's way of making it difficult to run servers on a residential connection. Although I did port scans for my computer I was only checking addresses ranges nearby the old one and it turns out my new address was very far away, in a range I wasn't scanning. (Time to write a little tool so I never lose track of my computers again…)

Anyway, that's why I was completely out of touch. I'm getting caught up on everything and should be back to normal soon.
