PS:257 – Meeting Woot!

So talked about a big setup of servers today, going to be a big investment, I feel good about it, but I want to pray about it big time too. It’s going to be a big investment of time, things are working “fair” at the moment, but the average is fair because some customers are having issues 🙁 so looking at the options they gave me.

Hopefully not too much longer of a night, my hackintosh is trying to update to macOS Sierra, hoping it’s not a fail like before, but if so backup just finished to the backup drive, so if it fails I can restore.

Here we go.

PS:256 – Meeting Fail.

So today I was supposed to have a meeting with some server guys, it fell through – busy day still none the less, things are stacking up this week, tad stressed. I could use some just R&R, hopefully tomorrow the meeting will go good, and sleep will follow.

PS:255 – Tir… Oh who am I kidding.

I think 90% of my posts as of late could be quite simply “Tired” because let’s face it, I am.

I love Lilly a lot, but her sleep schedule has been less than ideal, today though, today we may be back on track! She even put HERSELF in bed, danced under the blanket for a little bit, then crashed out completely.

So I’m getting in some work done shortly, I’m trying to focus up by writing as it does help, I could take a nap with her, but hoping we’ll see a good follow-up tonight of sleep for me and her as I have a 11AM meeting with a datacenter, working out an entirely new plan for server growth, something that long-term will give some room for growth, and higher availability to boot! Tomorrow we talk fine-tuning the solution, my big thing is storage. SSD = Super Fast however SATA = LARGE Storage. So we’ll see.

Back to it.

PS:254 – Ow-Ah!

That was the words from Lilly tonight as she woke up a little bit ago, she’s hurting 🙁 Legs are having growing pains would be my guess, but she’s in good spirits, just not sure when she’ll actually want to goto sleep, but there is hope she’ll sleep past 8am! 🙂 I have some work to-do, so hope to wrap it up sooner than later, and then get back to bed, and hope I can get some sleep in before a little girl wakes me up for a new day!

PS:253 – The week ahead.

I can’t get back to sleep, and thus I’m enjoying some time in the word, reading in 1 Corinthians – reading it across 3 bibles, times like this I wish I had a big comfy chair to relax and read/listen (ah Bible Apps with Audio reading, NIV Listener’s Bible, voice actor is fancy).

A busy week ahead, cleaning some – a lot of things ahead this week – trying to look at the business budget for a possible re-working of all server setups, it’s pretty awesome look, and seeing if too I can re-work things to be done quietly and quickly with zero downtime by shifting some IP ranges to new hardware cluster.

3 websites need to get done, 1 customer, my two business fronts – one of the BIG goals this week to squeeze in all of this, customer is one I want to get done first, and the two I have basic layouts done, just the content – but throw in varied projects that are on-going, this should be a busy week as I know varied projects are on the docket, and rumor has it I may have an interview soon. Which would be awesome, I’m not holding my breath as my first interview to even get the side work I’ve got took months, lots of “Soon” – My app is in – and hopefully it’ll be coming soon!

 

PS:252 – Lazy Sunday

Today has been a day of sleep, rest, doing nothing. Not feeling 100% still, but at least not run down like the start of the weekend, this week – a lot on the docket. Busy busy busy – hoping to be back to sleep before 1am, but got woken up by someone trying to hack one of my websites 🙁 Sorted, cleared the login prompts, files no longer are accessible to login, so I can’t even login. Not perfect, but works for now. Sleep soon. Happy week to you.

PS:251 – Late Day / Feeling Sick

Today got up late, a certain little girl woke up and wanted to play a bit… no names mentioned.

But just not feeling good today, been a rough couple of weeks, thinking if I’m not careful this will become full-blow-sick. 🙁 not really what I need/want right now, but doing my best to rest, and not have it get worse.

PS:250 – The Fair

So tonight was a journey into the fair. Good weather for the fair, especially the first few days! Now next week… gonna be HOT.

Lilly had fun, a little scared on rides (similar to how she was scared of the ocean when she first met it) so something she’ll conquer in her next visit to the fair in a year 🙂 (ok maybe this next week if time allows) but long day, long week. Sleep coming soon I hope for me!

PS:249 – Staying Positive

I’m positive things are nuts! I didn’t get as much as I had hoped done today, seems like I dig into a project and get stuck ironing out the kinks. I really am just at a point where I want to sleep for days, but since I have no luck in actually doing that, I’ll do my best. All I can do.

PS:248 – Podcasting

So I’m slowly rolling out a bi-weekly pod-cast on FlockHosting. Sure I have a ton to do, but honestly? I find it relaxing and its part “let it out” meets “inform customers” I may eventually use it to replace the FlockUpdate, but time will tell.

Tonight I have been doing some prep, one of the big things is really firming up access on my wifi connection at my desk, too many walls between me and the wifi router, and the hackintosh is rather cranky when it doesn’t have a full set of bars, but I’ve taken it tonight from 1.8Mbs -> 31.11Mbps

Nice to have a bit of jump back in, hopefully, it won’t die out in the AM when the world wakes up, but if so I think I may get another RE210 from TP-Link as that is what I’ve re-configured to push the 2.4/5ghz to reach back here what it is now, thinking if I get one more I can bridge the gap, but even the 2.4 coverage is better because I grabbed 2 WA850RA’s at Officemax tonight for a closeout of $15 per device, I grabbed two, and that’s made the Chromecast work again – Lilly watched Zootopia a bit until she buried herself in the pillows and went to bed.

A rough day overall, a customer who has decided to really make a project that was meant to be literally 1 week into now a multi-month painful experience, going to close it out tomorrow night, just be done and say “Here it is, Enjoy.” and submit my final invoice – need to keep knocking down the todo list. For now? The goal is no later than 3am to bed.
