Well, I think my home server is dead. Means I either need to scrounge a PSU for it (and hope that is the problem) or replace the box. I have a motherboard sitting in a case in my garage I can use, but I need a Haswell CPU for it and they are obscenely priced Anyone happen to have one they are willing to get rid of at a reasonable price?

I will try and find time to double check my stash tomorrow... I think all I have are Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge, but I _MIGHT_ have a low end Pentium G series Haswell or Devil's Canyon (should both be compatible)...

Found my Speed Dial 7 brake levers. That along with my new lock on grips, housing cutter, etc is enough to make me want to pull the crankset out of my bike, pull the bottom bracket out, put the spacer on the non drive side, swap the chain ring bolts, cut the shitty lock on grips off, run new cables and finish it.

Saw both Black Panther and Infinity War this weekend.

Quite good, ol' bean. Quite good.

Default What are you up to?


Bike is done other than the fork upgrade. And a tuneup by someone other than me. I think it needs a new derailleur hanger too.

Just finished making all my 'bag lunch' sandwiches for the work week.

Yes I know it's Tuesday which means I missed Monday shutup.

Absolute chaos here at the casa.

Slab leak on the hot water side, major damage and repair... insurance adjusters out constantly. I've been laying new sod in the front yard and with afternoon temps in the 90s now it's hard as fuck backbreaking work - even 150+ pounds lighter than I was little more than a year ago.

Laying pavers in the back for a new foundation for the grill because I got tired of my weiners rolling forward off the grill. Loads of brush, weeds, trees, etc cleanup in the back yard combined with planting of various flower roots, seeds, and bulbs.

I just want to rest and watch X-Files, is that so much to ask?
