Finally got around to setting this up with a co-worker. Its kind of a PITA to setup, but really neat when done. Now if only I had more time to game….

Well, I again have a dual stack network at home. IPv4 from Charter and IPv6 through a Hurricane Electric tunnel. I do have to say it was not as easy to setup on my EdgeRouter X as it was in pfSense but I figured it out. I will be writing a tutorial on how I did it in a little while since I figure other people might like to know 😀

So, I’ve been wanting to build a new home server for quite a while. Today I started planning it out, might be a while until I can build it but I can dream. My parts list is as follows.
Will use my current HDDs and set it up as an AIO ESXi/NAS4Free Host with 2x250GB HDDs for VMS & 2x2TB HDDs for other storage.

The wife and I took our son to the mall yesterday. Not the first time we have done this but every other time he has been we placed him & his car seat into the stroller. Yesterday we didn’t use the car seat, he loved looking around at everything in the mall as we walked around. No, I am sad to say that the mall is getting rather empty, although they do say they have more stores coming in and the soft pretzel place will be coming back. I hope the mall fills up just because its a great place to take him on a hot & stormy day (or a blizzard in the winter). Also, they have officially announced that the former TGI Fridays location in the mall lot will be replaced with a Red Robin. Very excited about that, I’ve always wanted to eat at one but never been able to.

OK, I officially hate SSL. I just spent close to an hour trying to get the SSL trust chain working correctly for this site, and I still can’t. Not sure if its something I’m doing wrong, something that Virtualmin is doing wrong (the control panel I use) or something that StartSSL is doing wrong. At any rate, I don’t care anymore right now and I only really use it for my admin interface anyway.

Just thought I’d share some of the stupid things people have asked and/or done since my wife and I announced we were having a kid and after he was born.
I’m sure there is more, I just can’t think of it right now.
