Wow…I knew I had been neglecting the blog but I didn’t realize it had been over a month!

So, what have I been doing? Working too much! This time of year has gotten worse and worse over the last several years. It seems like the kids all get busy with activities, we get the itch to work on outdoor stuff and I feel the urge to work on the Cobra a bit. The result is I always feel overworked and by this time I’m telling myself to just let it be. What get’s done, get’s done.

So, what have I been able to squeeze in? Got a new 4 post cabinet. Did I mention that already? Got it for free! Steered it away from the dumpster. I’ve been slowly migrating all my gear over to this thing and I think it’s coming along nicely. I just need to get it finished. Part of what I want to do is move more of my devices into rackable cases. I’m getting there.

As of now I have the following in separate chassis:
-DMZ VMware Server on Ubuntu for web sites
Unraid (currently 4tb usable, got another 1tb drive ready to go in, just need more SATA ports)
-Compaq ML380 G2 that’ll probably become my video surveillance recorder
SageTV
TrixBox CE (needs a rackmount case)

Also sporting a couple of switches, couple of routers and a couple of UPSs.

Once I’m done with the migration I’ll post some pics.
