I am currently in the process of trying to find a SAN for our lab at work, all I can say is it is not a fun process. Either everything is out of stock or they are super expensive

Well, not sure why it happened but when I applied Windows Updates to our Exchange servers at work today they both had their database and log drives lose their mind and go from ReFS partitions to RAW partitions. So now I get to try to recover the data from them. I guess next time I go to do updates on said servers, I will be taking a snapshot of those machines first…….
I can also say I will never run ReFS on a server again unless I am not given a choice……

I really wish Amazon’s delivery service would go away. Got a package via UPS today and it showed up without issue. Had another one that was supposed to show up via Amazon’s delivery service, and the driver maybe got a block away before they had a “delivery” exception. Sadly, the pieces work together so it would have been nice to get the second delivery too.

After running pfSense on an old 1U 8 Core AMD Opteron for quite a while I have decided to switch to another router. The main reason for this is to reduce my power bill and heating of the house in the summer. I’m switching to a MikroTik RB4011iGS+RM. I’ll keep the 10Gbps link from the router to my network switch, I just know it will take a lot of work to configure it to work as I expect it to. Oh well, it is what it is and will be worth it in the end.

I am still working on 3D printing my SkeeRide RC Snowmobile. Getting to the final amount of items to print though. Currently working on the front cover, then I have the tail light housing & side covers left. Unless I decide to go with a mod bumper that helps reinforce the rear suspension mounts. At any rate, enjoy this OctoLapse of the seat base print.

Still loving my Ender 3, although at this point it has been highly modified. I did find one issue, that is 100% my fault. I had the current for the stepper motors turned up way too high so it was overheating the motors and causing the gantry to drop during prints. Once I fixed that issue it is back to printing well. I still need to add some thermal compound between the heartbreak & heatsink I swapped to (a Mellow NF Smart CR10) but given my normal printing temps it isn’t too bad.
