PS:223 – Hackintosh is Stable-ish!

I’m still trying to sort out what’s causing the issues, but I think that the big problem? Wireless driver isn’t perfect. While the signal says “Er Yeah, we’ve got a signal!” it may just have been interference & distance. So now (for lack of a better solution) facing the antenna’s from my wireless card are now facing sideways lol. So far? Zero network issues (well aside from the fact this thing sleeps on me.

This has made it a LOT easier to work, something about Mac’s that are so memory hungry that 32GB of ram is fantastic to throw at things like iMovie for FlockUpdates and too Virtualizing Windows 8.1, Ubuntu at the same time! Still want to bring over my old Windows XP and Windows 7 virtuals too, may do a few Mac versions (not sure) but been doing some support lately for various Operating systems so having a few on hand has been awesome.

Overall while this is great? I’m exhausted. Week after week of non-stop, really taking a toll. Even weekends aren’t restful. I can’t escape or change the stresses, they are just there. For now I finish up the server tasks ahead of me, as I’m at 80% compiled now, going to go stage the next 2 things that will follow this one. I need rest.

PS:178 – Might be a sleep day.

I’ve been going going going, here it is like I said yesterday (some 5 hours ago) it was going to be a late night and here I am. Still awake. I’ve managed to keep Lilly sleeping, had to shut down my big monitor and go only laptop, she’s hurting (growing pains/teething/allergies) and I’ve got her settled, but it’s been a rough couple of days, she had a REALLY bad night at the lake, woke up could not get comfortable – finally had to take her upstairs and hold her at an incline in a recliner to get her calm and sleeping.

Same goes for me, I’ve been going going going for over a week, second day in a row that it looks like I’m going to see Sunrise again. I may sneak out and get a few laps in to cool down and get a little deeper sleep – but likely I’ll just crash out, maybe a shower? I dunno. Long week, more long weeks ahead, I’ve committed to some BIG projects 60 hours on a coding, around 2 weeks on a MASSIVE migration, and already the Up band has told me my sleep sucks.

I need to get some real rest under my belt, maybe today I’ll make it a rest day? Might be a good plan, because I think people are more and more worried I’m going to die, becuase for the 2nd time in recent weeks someone has asked “If you die…” type questions relating to my business. I mean come on, I got a haircut, I look good! 😉

Sleep is needed, need to wrap up, need to get a lot done tomorrow during the day and hopefully that’ll lead to a good night’s rest. Have a good day all!
