As much as I don't like promoting services such as spotify premium but I do use it. I just wanted to let people know about ncspot an ncurses ui which I use and really, really like. It compiles and works on arm as well which is the main reason I first tried it.

Fuck sake more power spike/outage action, hope we arenโ€™t going to lose power soon!! Then it really will be Duke Nukem

So Dell Engineers been, fitted new PSU. Booted up server SSD showing unconfigured in POST (Ruh-roh).. No sign of RHEL 7.7 on the disk. So I agreed to reinstall and try and resurrect the ZFS pool (5 10Gb spinning rust disks). Half any hour later another phone call to Dell Tech Support for a new NvMe Drive and JBOSS Card (Dell Propitiatory Goodness adaptor card!!) Enterprise Kit don't you just love it๐Ÿ˜ฃ

So Dell Engineer is coming tomorrow with some parts for the server, not sure how that works with the Social Distancing, I'll try and keep my distance from him as best I can and do as much as I can to keep us both safe.

Never Rains but it poor, had a power surge at the house this evening, itโ€™s taken out my PowerEdge server. Pretty sure itโ€™s the PSU but how the hell I get Support on it god only knows, will have to ring Dell in the morning ๐Ÿ˜–

Dear lazy web, I'm looking for a good and hopefully cheaper Linux VPS Hosting, anyone got any recommendations? Was thinking about moving to Bitfolk

In other news the Fediverse appears to have been overtaken by Sex Spam, I have 7 new followers offering me all manner of services, from pictures to appointments!! Is nothing sacred

So yesterday I was told I am now a Furloughed Worker so today I'm just pottering about doing bits and pieces wondering how much more cereal things will become!! ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Setup a VPN solution and also managed to fix a broken boot manager on an old Windows 8.1 install I thought I had lost, so been a productive day. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

So I'm finally working from home as of today. This morning at the train station I felt like the company I work for was one of the last one's. But I work for a company of 15 not a decent sized business like many who commute to Manchester!!

Today I will be mostly installing RHEL on a Dell Poweredge T340

So only been back working for a month and I'm already welcoming a break!! Good thing I'm done for Christmas now ๐Ÿ™Œ

I know Iโ€™ve not been around for a while but, Good Morning

Trying A Overnight Oats Recipe for a working weekday breakfast I can either eat on the train or have quickly at home before leaving for work. This one comes courtesy of MyFitnessPal

Another advantage to cooking from scratch is batch cooking, I now have most of my main meals covered for the week. This helped back in the day, when cooking from scratch during the week wasnโ€™t always achievable due to time.

So I started cooking meals from scratch again this week as part of my get my shit straight life changes. Forgotten how satisfying it is and a little therapeutic at the same time, plus Iโ€™ve taken back control of what Iโ€™m putting in my body.
