Halfway through November

Not really that much to write about this month.  After the great October that I had, November is just looking so-so, even though it really is doing well.

I guess there is new news.  I finally decided to switch to a dedicated server for my stores.  I was going to order up one monster server and run 10 stores on it for about $400/mo.  But I decided to go with 2 small servers at about $200/mo each.  This will give me a level of redundancy in case a server fails.  That way I don’t lose all my stores at once.

The migration has been very time consuming.  I have only migrated one store over and it should have gone smoothly, but I really don’t know what I’m doing so I’m learning as I go.  Luckily I migrated a store that doesn’t make that much and it was only down 1 day due to DNS propagation.

I don’t know if I want to migrate one of my major stores over yet.  If I do, it will have to be done before next week.  I started running Black Friday sales already.

BTW, in case you are wondering about maintenance Ferrari.  Oil changes recommended every 12,500 miles or 12 months are $450.  Annual service for fluids including an oil change is $1100.  Bi-annual service is $2000 and a timing belt change every 3 years is $2500.  New clutch is $3500.  So if I keep the car for 3 years, I’d spend $6,100 on maintenance on it, assuming I don’t need a new clutch.  So it’s not too bad.
