Blog Hijinks

Apparently my last post and my custom theme decided to break the site. Thankfully I backup my posts every time I write or edit an entry, so nothing was lost. In any case, I had to cancel the custom theme for a bit until I can get a few things sorted out on my test

Motherboard Failure

My home computer is experiencing a motherboard failure. I’m going to have to replace it. The symptoms showed up as the sound card completely stopped functioning. Financially, I’m not a great place in regards to this happening now. Not to worry, I’m still moving forward, but a few things might get delayed a bit. I’ll

Power Issues Resolved

I was able to solve the power issue with my server cabinet, and I’m finally building the raid for another Proxmox node to add to my cluster. I need to add one more node after this so I can set up failover and whatnot, but we’ll get there when we get there. I seriously need

Filming of Tutorials Starting

I’ve started filming the tutorials. There will be some editing ( not good editing since I can’t afford an editor ) to do, but I imagine that the first tutorials should be coming out in February, possibly March. I’m waiting on some stuff from Amazon as well, so that might delay some of the projects

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2020! Got my cameras together. I still need to replace the webcam, but I got my handhelds and my GoVision glasses out of storage for some other ideas I have going on. I’m thinking the GoVision glasses will give you a nice first person view when working on hardware. We’ll see what happens.

Christmas Expiramentation

I’ve done some experiments in preparation to doing the tutorials. I have gotten Samba to act as a DC, as well as support LDAP over TLS connections. There were a few hiccups here and there, but mostly it was just user error. For instance, I misunderstood the proper placement of the certificates. There was a

Power Issues

Well, apparently I don’t have enough power in my apartment to run both of my servers with all the other electrical appliances. Thank goodness this is only a temporary situation. I do plan on moving out within a year or two ( depending on the market ). That said, it really does put a damper
