Proxy Servers Upgraded

For a long time we have been using a pair of very old Sun servers ( the old Solen and Ra ) as our proxy servers.  Well today was finally the day to train in their replacements.  At about 11:30am today I flipped the switch so that people began using the two new proxy servers.  […]

New internet connection growing pains

After many weeks of waiting today was finally the day we were able to cut over from our 40Mbit HickoryTech internet connection to our shiny new 100Mbit Onvoy internet connection.

First issues with Leopard

Opening day at the new stadium

This past Saturday I spent the day at the new football stadium here at Gustavus Adolphus College. I started the day by placing a webcam in the home team’s radio booth to capture images for the Gustavus website as well as to create a time lapse video of the day. We also used that camera […]

Shortly after 2:00pm the last column was knocked down and the sorting of the rubble began. If you would like to watch the whole event as captured by our two HD webcams, click on […]

New Stadium Turf Install Video

Over the past week or so the turf installers have been busy installing the new “grass” in the stadium. They are not done yet. The yard markers and some of he edges are not finished yet and I think they still need to fill it in with “dirt”. I put together a time lapse video […]

Some of the other jacks that were installed are now connected to new wireless access points. Last year Uhler […]
