In theory this should be a breeze. Install FreeBSD Unix on an old computer, add a web server, a database and some other bells and whistles to get it running for DigitalEve Japan. We've done this before.

In practice it's turning out to be a major hassle. Not even counting that it took two days to download the latest version of the OS and burn it onto a CD, this project has not gone smoothly. The machine, which works beautifully under WindowsNT, will not properly reboot in Unix which renders it useless as a remote server. So it's back to the drawing board. Either we get another computer or we try another version of Unix.

Maybe building Unix servers is worse than job hunting.
