Fuck sake more power spike/outage action, hope we aren’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 it😣

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, it’s taken out my PowerEdge server. Pretty sure it’s the PSU but how the hell I get Support on it god only knows, will have to ring Dell in the morning 😖

@ollyclarkdotorg I've been using hetzner since it was recommended to me by @theru.

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!! 😟

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. 😱

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!!

Working in the office: lots of distractions, constant meetings, phones ringing, mouse-clicking and keyboard punching, restricted internet connection, DELL PC with the cheapest peripherals, expensive food options within a 10 minute walk.

Working from home: comfortable chair, calm environment, more screen real estate, better keyboard/mouse, decent PC, gigabit internet connection, a fridge full of things I like.

Be nice to the hard working people in your supermarket. Compliment them. Don’t ever blame them for not having that one special thing you think you need. They work hard. At the frontline. To keep us all fed and alive. Thank them. #SpreadHopeNotFear #covid19

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 🙌

I know I’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 blog.myfitnesspal.com/mixed-be

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 wasn’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 I’ve taken back control of what I’m putting in my body.
