Tongue Twisters and Unlucky Lightning Strikes

After quite the ordeal over the last two days, the Web site for Sapphire Group, LLC finally launched today. It marks my first work-for-hire Web site that launches (semi-)publicly.

During the process, I found myself scrambling to learn as much as I could about DNS entries across the Internet. Did a lot of reading over at Wikipedia about it and had to communicate and translate some of the technical aspects of how to achieve what we wanted to both tech support folks and business folks alike. In the end, though, the biggest lesson I learned is that proper previous planning prevents piss poor performance. (Thanks, Char!)

On a side note, I’m really happy to see HBX Networks’ free shell project back online after a lightning strike took out Nova, their old server.
