Finished the front cover for my SkeeRide, at 31 hours it is the longest print I have done so far.

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.

I was using a HP dc7900 Core 2 Duo w/ 8GB RAM, a 2 port Intel NIC, a HP P410 RAID Card & 2 500GB HDDs to run a small ESXi host to run my UniFi controller, my Plex Media Server & my home automation server. It died on me last night so now I have to move everything elsewhere. My UniFi controller is going back onto a Raspberry Pi 2, the home automation server onto a Raspberry Pi 3 with Hassbian and then Plex Media Server back onto our desktop. Not to happy about this, but hopefully at some point in the server I can come up with the money to get a Core i5 system so I can run everything on one box. Just frustrating because I had just set it up
