So you might be thinking why run a server of a tablet?

Question-MarkThe answer is simple! I use my tablet to test every damned thing that eventually shows up on my other WordPress sites! It’s also a handy way to communicate issues/news about my primary server.

The tablet can easily run for roughly 9 hrs on battery while I am out and about and posting like I am today!

Lastly the other reason to run a server on a tablet is BECAUSE YOU CAN!

A short update about the primary server here at HQ

VMWare_PlayerSo here we go we are now installing Debian 8.1 into a virtual machine which will eventually host  all the sites I run eventually… But not until the server has 8 gb ram on Dec 9th.

Pretty exciting times here at HQ, but that is how it’s always been! I have increased the total web space available to 30 gigabytes.

Note: This site runs on my tablet, totally free of the mayhem going on with my other sites. Yes, for those thinking WTF? THIS site is running on A TABLET!

MY OTHER SITES ON THE PRIMARY SERVER ARE GETTING AN UPDATE….SO FOR A FEW DAYS THIS WILL BE THE ONLY SERVER ONLINE IN THE EVENINGS.

So all the other sites I1-Server-Down run are going to be moving onto a new Virtual Server over the next several days and this site will be the only active one running most of the time in the evenings.

So the following sites will have some serious downtime:

  • Tim’s Tablet Web Site – tablets.yourfreewordpress.com
  • Your Free WordPress – yourfreewordpress.com
  • The Primary DragonTouchX10 Web Site – dragontouchx10.yourfreewordpress.com

…and a few other associated test sites that I run.

RSS Multi-Importer Plugin issues

Info=I-1This was one of the best little plugins out there, because it imported feeds and auto-posted them quite nicely while leaving links back to the site they originated on.

For some reason mine no longer runs when my cron command hits the site every 15 minutes or so to make stuff happen. It works fine if I manually fire it off.

While there are other plugins out there that do the same thing I would love for someone to help me figure out why this plugin has ceased to function properly.

It’s Thursday and here is another post about my little test server.

1126306_fuel_gaugeSo as I always do on Thursdays I post something to my dragontouch website. Today I have chosen to write the post on the actual dragontouch test server.

Since I am home all day today I chose to leave The Server active for the entire day. I’ve left the server in “never sleep” today. So far after being on for 5 solid hours it is still at 70% battery.

Not too bad for a relatively inexpensive 10.6 inch tablet. I did however unplug the mouse and turn off the Bluetooth keyboard.  Because I have to leave the machine awake, the screen has been active all day so that the tablet does not go to sleep and lose Wi-Fi connection. So this is a pretty good test of battery life on this tablet. I activated The Server this morning around 10:30 a.m. and it’s now 3:50 p.m. so that is pretty good battery life as far as I’m concerned.

A quick update here, it is now 5 pm and the Tablet is still at 50%. That’s 6.5 hrs of solid running.
