Cumulus Linux 4.1.0-cl7-amd64 is unhappy. It crashes when it is unlicensed and Ansible attempts to gather facts during a playbook run.

Making an OS X VM on VMware Workstation. Because I can't be bothered to drop $3k on a Mac, and I need to be able to test shit for work on OS X.

From an intermittent 31Mbps on a speed test to a solid 232.9Mbps... all because I didn't realize that when you reset the modem, it's also good to unscrew the coax once in a while, that way your modem can realize it's been re-provisioned to a higher speed tier.

Fuckin' christ.

Ha ... unless I switch to Comcast, I can't get faster than 75 Mbps FTTN DSL here. Yes, fiber to the node, and then late '60s copper to my house. But hey, at least I get my 75 Mbps, and I don't have to fight with anyone else for bandwidth during peak hours, right?

Really sucks when your 10/100 LAN adapter and your WiFI adapter run at the same speed, and both of which have buffering issues at 1080p.

edit: And I can't find any micro USB adapters that run gigabit.

Upgraded my case fans, of all things. They were 140mm TT Riing fans with green LEDs. Now they're 120mm Enermax SquaRGB fans, with the ARGB headers connected to the motherboard.

MOAR RGB. MOAR.

I can never decide which operating system to use at work. Yesterday I ran into some bullshit with Windows 10 version 2004 that forced me to switch to Linux again.

See, I use VMware Workstation to run local VMs (desktop PCs at the office all have either 64 or 128 GB of RAM, can't not run local VMs) for testing/developing/learning purposes, and to manage our VMware environment. However, I also wanted to use Windows Subsystem for Linux 2. This installs some Hyper-V components, which causes VMware Workstation 15.5 to not be able to start VMs. That kind of defeats more than half the purpose of having the software installed. So, I just scrapped the OS (and the dual 512GB NVMe RAID 0 I had going), chucked Pop!_OS 20.04 on the box, installed VMware Workstation, chucked a domain-joined Windows VM on there, enabled nested virtualization, and enabled WSL 2. My two left 4k displays are for Linux, and the two right displays (one 4k, one 1080p) are for Windows, and I don't have to dual-box.

My office workstation has similar specs to my desktop: Ryzen 9 3900X, Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro Wifi, 64GB Corsair DDR4, Quadro P2200, 2x 500GB WD PC SN730 NVMe SSDs, 1x Samsung 850 Evo, 1x Toshiba 4TB 7200RPM HDD. Until this morning it was cooled by an Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer 120, but I threw the stock Wraith Prism on it instead, as it exhibits the exact same performance characteristics as the Arctic.

I am dreading the upgrades I have to do at work this weekend. I need to upgrade our phone system, voicemail system & IM & presence system. Cisco upgrades suck ass.

On the subject of phone systems -- it's beginning to look like we'll be decommissioning Skype for Business. We're investigating alternatives, possibly cloud-based.

Aww yeah. That elgato card is great. Only thing I need to figure out is how to get better webcam performance, since the LG G6 over WiFi is not the best solution. Performance is good, even at 720p, but the latency sucks. I tried using the laptop's built-in camera with VLC, but the latency was even worse than the phone over wireless. Same with ffmpeg from the command line and VLC via Icecast.

I can set up OBS on his machine and have it run full screen on the HDMI output, but I don't want the camera mixed in with the game display as my stream display has space for both cameras.

We've discussed switching to Teams Enterprise Voice, but that requires purchasing an SBC Sad

I've gotten our CUCM & IMP server upgraded to 12.5, UCN is on 11.5 because it appears going to 12.x requires 6GB of RAM (I hope).

I'm bangin' my head against the wall (figuratively) trying to remember the name of that website that had the bootleg FLAC soundboard recordings from all sorts of concerts. It's not all that important, but it sucks that I can't remember.

I drove down to the office since our production VM storage appliance shit itself. Appears that either an upgrade went bad or a BBU is going out.

Also, its fun driving through an area that just had riots........

Looking at building another Threadripper 3960X workstation ... this one's going to be air-cooled (Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 + additional Noctua NF-A15 fan), will have a PCIe Gen4 boot volume, and a Fractal Design Meshify C (no window, that Noctua is ugly).

Side note: I h a t e the name "Meshify." It sounds like something a fresh marketing grad forced someone to write on the side of the damn box. Ugh.

I'm firehosing the Synology NAS with data now. It has almost 14TB of available capacity. Problem is it's a relatively low-end model so it'll take a while to run the initial parity checks, and while it does that it'll be dragging ass in the performance department.

'bout to install DD-WRT for the first time and hopefully not nuke my network in the process.

edit: Can still access the internet, but can't log in to the router, it's that generic "This site can't be reached". Weird.

Restarting my computer fixed whatever the issue was, apparently. When I opened Chrome after that, it prompted me to log in to the router and it's been good to go since then.

Nice.

The security system at the office is having "issues" in that we can't access it via our assigned IP but we can access it through its APIPA address (169.254.1.0/24 network). Thank go our physical DC (backup) has a spare NIC we can use to manage it for now.
