Today is #WorldBackupDay. When was the last time you backed up your data?
So, when I decided to switch from CentOS to make my life a bit easier on my server, I had the choice of either Ubuntu Server or Debian.
I ran Ubuntu Server for the last couple of years with no issues.
That server started dying last weekend and I installed Debian just for curiosity sake.
I think that I made the wrong choice a couple of years ago.
In its tenure with me, it's run 2 different versions of Windows Server, and many different flavors of Linux (mainly CentOS). It's been a Minecraft server, a number cruncher for WCG, a VPN server, a file/media server, a Mastodon server, a pi hole server, and most recently a Nextcloud and UniFi Controller.
Not even sure what it did before that.
Now, off to computer recycling where it can hopefully be recycled into something useful again.
Thanks for your hard work, server computer.
Time to officially retire the server PC. Stuff is starting to fail on it and it isn't worth the time and money to replace the failing parts.
It was my first official server, not a repurposed PC. Bought it a few years ago to use as a Minecraft / general purpose server to replace my aging desktop PC server. I think I paid $75 for it so I definitely got my money's worth out of it.
So, I was thinking that the cord for my computer speakers may have been going bad, since one channel was about half as loud as the other. So, I swapped it out. As well as did some troubleshooting..
Nope.. after some troubleshooting, I think the amp is bad. :/
Wish I knew how to fix stuff like that.. I mean, I'm thankful that I have a decent backup set of speakers.. but I'll miss the other ones.
So, I was alerted that today is National Margarita Day! Totally celebrating that. :D - http://www.holidayscalendar.com/event/national-margarita-day/
