My 700e security camera failed after a couple years of use. I got a Grandstream replacement, which I’ll also post about, so I figured it would be good to take the 700e apart and see if I could figure out what went wrong. Figure it out I did. And since there’s a lack of documentation […]
No matter what I did I could not get a stable NFS connection to Unraid. The stale file handles problem was a continuing source of issues with Plex running on Ubuntu. I just switched to SMB and it seems to be working ok. I’m having some pausing on high bandwidth content, but that might be […]
And yet some things stay the same. I’m returning to IT consulting next week and I’m very excited to be doing this! I gave the corporate job 3.5 years and while I thought it was good for getting that type of experience, it never really fit well for me. I can’t wait to get going!
As of August 11th, 2014, I am a college graduate. 24 year senior, or something like that. Anyway, I’m happy to be done with it, but I can’t say that it feels like much of anything. Just need to keep moving on.
I just finished another semester of school. I came very close to saying I aced it, but unfortunately I was one grade away from that. That’s ok. I’m in an in between week now. On Monday my second to last class starts. It’s a writing class, which if you can tell from looking at this […]

I’ve been watching the West Wing again and find it very inspiring, even if I disagree with many of the ideas. This PoI episode though, powerful in a bad way. Makes me fearful of government, […]
A couple of episodes ago on the Walking Dead there was a song that caught my ear. I looked it up and it was Blackbird Song by Lee Dewyze. Could be straight out of Firefly, for all you Verse lovers. Definitely worth the download.
For future reference: Download the 64 bit .deb file sudo dpkg -i plex…deb Replace with the correct file name. Looks like that’s all you have to do.
I’ve decided to finish up college by end of Summer 2014. This means taking a bunch of classes. Good news is that I’m in the home stretch. Bad news is, it’s really time consuming and not always interesting. I’m currently writing a paper describing in excruciating detail, a PC changing from a 56k modem connection […]
Made some recommended changes to MySQL and it seems to be behaving better. We’ll see if that continues.
