Some Network Tweaks

December 28, 2017 General 0

I decided to go from software dynamic disks raid on the VM mirror to direct hardware raid. This was relatively painless. I exported the Hyper-V VM’s to the backup server (which took about an hour at a gigabit)..deleted both disks from storage spaces…then using the web interface logged into the raid controller and created the… Read more

Social Security is a ponzi scheme..the real problem with the gov’t budget.

December 27, 2017 Finance 0

Let’s start off with a definition.  What is exactly is a ponzi scheme? There’s wikipedia  definition.  In a nutshell newer investors are required to continually payoff the existing investors.  When(not if) this fails everybody looses.  Many government programs are variations of this….most pension funds are variations of this as well as the ACA.  Right now… Read more

Car Stuff

I have liked the KIA Soul for the most part.  My biggest gripe has been the 6 speed manual transmission.  It is geared so closely that I can literally go 1-2-3-4-6 and back again…Or i can skip any gear from 2-5.  It’s ridiculous and makes finding the right gear a pain in the ass.  I… Read more

How December overfloweth

I just blew my own mind.  I just realized this 2k paycheck carries until the 27th when I get an additional $2800.  Then 3 days after that I will get another @$2300.  I am used to $2800 having to last the entire month. I am not going to spend like mad…but it is nice knowing… Read more

The source of my malcontent(resolved)

December 15, 2017 Job Stuff 0

You will see some malcontent in earlier posts…it was me getting frustrated with what i felt was the usual cliques i find..that i despise.  However the CEO and my supervisor made sure that I was introduced to most of the senior leadership team face-to-face.  It was nice to see the CEO himself taking an active… Read more

For the few that can see these private posts allow me to explain something.  I am not confident in facebook’s “privacy” controls.  i will put things i do not want getting back to my employer(either good or bad) or anyone else.  If you are able to see this you are one of a very fee… Read more

Moore Fakenews..It is Too Predictable

December 8, 2017 Fakenews Politics Uncategorized 0

The Trump Derangement Syndrome has gotten to the point that anything in the media that comes out I hold off on before I post.  I would say about 90% of the time if it is anti-conservative(not cuckservative), anti-trump it’s bullshit. The instant this Roy Moore stuff started coming out I was highly suspicious.  Back on… Read more
