Call it a feeling, but I'm quite certain that what I write here is going to change significantly over the course of the next several weeks. I am very close to a life-changing event and it's starting to sink in. This event will be a positive one. Realistically speaking, this event is not just an event - it's the start of a journey... one that will take me places I knew were reachable given the right circumstances.
This journey will involve change. Change is both good and bad... but that's with anything in this life. You either move forward and go for what you want or you stay stuck in your own private hell. As I've said before, anyone who feels trapped in a situation built their own "box" - and it is up to the individual to break that box.
My only fear at this point is that my journey will be stopped cold before it even starts. Fortunately, the fear is small because I am confident that things will fall into place - and they are.
The signs are looking good and it is time. I am long overdue.
The server's back up, running good! Server IP: 220.127.116.11:27015. See you there!
The Counter-Strike server has been down for a few days because it was being converted from Windows to (you guessed it) SuSE Linux. The box is now all set up, I just have to get a few things out of the way and then it will be back online. Once this is done I'm going to leave it as is for a while, but I'll pop in from time to time. I'll be reposting the server IP once I'm finished with it.
