FINAL NOTICE -- Impending Permanent Retirement of OAK Personal Web Pages

Tue, 14 Jun 2011 09:36:00 -0400

The OAK server was the personal student and faculty hosting solution offered by my university. It was old, limited, and running out of date versions of PHP and MYSQL. I do have to shed a single tear for my server retirement. It was my first real personal webspace. Predating any personal server I paid for. It had a horrible URL convention, included a tilda (~), and utilized a nested sub domain. Regardless once I figured it out, I had my web space. I hosted for many years a horrible personal site for myself on it. Used it for file transfers, graphics, and audio clips when producing other items. I even hosted one my earliest creations, my step dads site, http://thaddeuskbrejwo.com on it for years. Accessing any content on it highlighted how it was from a time past in my life. Although I have many times backed up the contents of this server, it still feels a little sad going away. One thing I like about leaving little paper trails throughout the web is they feel like time capsules. If you have a web history, no doubt have gone back to something years ago and gotten a good laugh and a smile out of it.
