Joomla, VPS, Mailman 

Spent a day transferring content from to the new joomla.

Fixed breakage to mailing lists because a domain with only a simple website was being used for high traffic mailing lists, which broke when the domain name was transferred. Temporarily fixed by pointing the lists subdomain back at the still live lists server.

Set up Mailman on the VPS, finding the Plesk specific installer in the "Upgrade" section.

Spent time going through receipts for accounting.

Domain names and websites 

Transferred more domains over to the DigitalSpace VPS.
Fixed one of the domain names not resolving. .org domains require two nameservers, even if the are both names for the same machine. .com domains are happy with just one nameserver, but if you put in two mapping to the same machine, an error is given.

VPS, Domain transfers, and reCAPTCHA 

Went through and checked some of the sites that had been transferred to the VPS, PHP wasn't enabled by default so some sites that were "pure HTML" had contact forms that were failing.
Went through the contact form code that wasn't working on the new server, decided to replace the home made solution with reCAPTCHA, since it's become a defacto standard, and is in many ways better then what we had.

One of the domains,, is failing. According to the .org name-servers, there is no information about, although the domain registrar info pages say everything is all set up appropriately.

HDD Replacement 

Took a LONG time with the HDD replacement, due to slow copy speeds and erroring out with bad sectors overnight. fsck killed off the contents of one of the partitions (assuming due to the bad sectors) and had to switch back and tarball it since sector copying wasn't working (and because it was in the LVM partition).
