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.

Over the weekend the PSU in my desktop at home decided to shit itself. In doing so, it started to burn/melt the 4 pin CPU connector on the board. Now running a Pentium Dual Core E5200 at home just so I can print and check email. It isn’t fast enough to actually handle connecting to the VPN at work so I’ll have to use the spare sales laptop for now

I am giving up on the KCMA-D8 boards. Returned the last one and I will be getting an Inventec B800GF0. Will take more RAM, has 10G networking, and uses Xeons instead of Opterons. Cheaper too. Of course it will have its own issues, but what doesn’t anymore?

The last major upgrade I have to do on my mountain bike is the fork. I do need a new derailleur hanger as my current one is bent and causing some minor shifting issues. I also want to shim the chainring over a bit to help with the driveline angle in the lower gears (1-5) even though it is just inboard of the “ideal” location. Once I have the fork done, I will then start to save for the remote lockout kit for it and then it will be done until I decide I want a new seat or I wear the tires out.

This June, I’m riding in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer!
My goal is to ride 79 miles throughout the month.
Why am I doing this? Because cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in the United States – 38 children die of cancer every week.
My challenge will be tough, but it’s nothing compared to what these brave kids face every day of their lives as they battle this terrible disease.
Kids should be living life, NOT fighting for it.
And so I am taking on my own personal challenge to support cancer research and give these kids the brighter futures they deserve…
But I need your help.
Please support my 79 miles challenge to save little lives by making a donation through my fundraising page:
All funds raised will support Children’s Cancer Research Fund to continue their work to develop innovative treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.
Thank you for your support.
