Centos

It's been a month...

Time flies when you have to rebuild your web server at least 10 times...

The last month took forever in one regard, and in another it went by fast.  I was running Ubuntu 12.04 and that came up on EOL (End of Life) the first week of August and in reading about the upgrade I decided NOT to upgrade to the next level of Ubuntu (was reading something about them not using a LTS (Long Term Support) release for their kernel so I decided to move away from that).

Distracted

My old gig has been diverting me lately but I haven't forgotten where I'm pointed.  

The weekend was productive.  I installed a CentOS VM on my Windows 2012 machine.  CentOS is quite different from Ubuntu but in doing some reading I decided it was best not to upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04, but to instead go to CentOS.  It is the free LINUX that is based off Red Hat.  The install went off pretty well.
