The Big Five Oh!

50 years ago today, about 1:30 in the afternoon, Jan and I exchanged vows, rings and “I Do’s” in a little chapel on Northington Campus, the married student’s housing at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL.

I was wearing a suit and my beautiful red-headed wife was wearing a wedding dress that she had made herself the week before.

Along the way we had two great kids, Christopher Andrew and Brandi Leigh, and two fantastic grandkids, Piper Jean and Landon Thomas.

Jan later said she was determined for us to stay together for at least the first five years just to spite my mother.

I made the Clear Lake run again this morning, with a quick segue to get a haircut (quick because it doesn’t take long.) before getting to the office.

I did make a lot of progress today, finally getting into the tattoo shopping cart and resetting the passwords, so that means I can now update prices and make corrections.

I also made a big leap ahead on hacking into the Linux webserver, finally getting access to the Linux desktop on the machine. So now I can see where I need to get to, and to do that I need to get ‘root’ access to the system.

That will let me get into the mail server and add and update email addresses. In addition, it will help me get further along on moving the Zen Cart shopping carts to an off-site server, along with the mail server.

So now I’ve got to start going through all the possible passwords I’ve gleaned from scattered text files and scraps of paper laying around. But as of yesterday, I’m completely on my own as far as the password situation goes, with no possible additional input from the previous  IT guy, as he died in the nursing home yesterday.

Although I only met him a few times, I was sorry to hear that.
