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

Last night we got around 6” of snow. Since the plow company doesn’t get everything we have to shovel some of the snow. Well today Lucas decided he wanted to help me. He did a good job until the end when he started to get distracted. I can however say that he was a super cute helper.

I was going through some old pictures recently and found the last pictures I have of the first Jeep I ever owned. A 1991 Jeep Cherokee that did a good job of protecting me when I hit the green Chevy Malibu Maxx the last two pictures are of. It was not a good day.

I really hate web pages that have a Java web app on them. Especially since the days of being able to run them are going to be going away shortly. Currently, Firefox ESR 52 32-bit allows you to run them, but once they move the ESR to the next version the ability to run them goes away. HTML5 pages are much better, to bad legacy network gear (I’m looking at you old HP ProCurve at work) will never be updated……

My wife and I have had our current mattress for a while and while it is still comfortable it needs some help. We picked up a Fieldcrest 3″ cooling foam topper at Target yesterday. Didn’t fix it 100% but it was a good first step. Also didn’t wake up covered in sweat like we used to.
