Writing new user setup documentation.

Decided to work smarter and not harder. Rather than writing pages and pages with loads of screenshots for adding an AD user via "Active Directory Users and Computers" I just replaced the whole damn thing with a single PowerShell command.

This is just one of the reasons CLI is better for just about everything.

Granted I could write a quick customized PowerShell GUI that would be much less to document, but this is still far easier.

I decided to install/enable the Azure AD Connector on the weekend…

How's your Monday going?


A little upgrade in my home lab while I'm waiting for other things to finish here at work this afternoon.


Why you gotta be like this to me Carbon Black? 😭

This is trying to run Windows Sandbox on my new ThinkPad. So sad.

vaccine misinformation 

I started the day listening to Mudvayne and ended with Snarky Puppy? Clearly the only reasonable explanation is the vaccine.


Welp. They Pfizered me. I was hoping I'd be 5G now but apparently I'm only LTE until my second shot.

Dinner tonight:

B: When I grow up I’m going to be a baker… AND a ninja.

A: I’m going to be a superhero and my power will be to shoot corn on the cob. And muffins.

Love these kids!

Strange, on both ThinkPad T540ps that I've tried FreeBSD on. Neither will boot with HyperThreading DISABLED in the BIOS…

COVID Vaccination 

Huzzah! Booked for my vaccination (Pfizer) on Wednesday!!

re: Networking Gore? 

@tek @nomad my only thought was some sort of miscommunication and that somewhere along the way outbound UDP (1-65535 is still excessive) became inbound port forwarding? Odd that it was that was for the Wii-U as well though.

This is kind of neat. Federated comments system based on the Matrix protocol: cactus.chat/

re: stress, medical gore 

@egret Thanks! We'll manage. And I have the easy job of watching the kids at least.

re: stress, medical gore 

@pmosetc Thanks! One way or another we'll manage. Trickiest part now will be making sure my father-in-law has someone to help him or somewhere to stay until my MIL is able to help him.

re: stress, medical gore 

@thegibson Thanks! I had the easy job of looking after the kids. Had to postpone my server RAM upgrade this weekend but that's very minor. And the mother-in-law was doing well after surgery.

So now we just have to figure out who/where will take care of the father-in-law until MIL is well enough to.

stress, medical gore 

When it rains it pours. My mother had cornea transplant surgery today (after FOUR previous cancellations) and then this afternoon my wife took the mother-in-law to the ER with what we thought was a gallbladder attack. Turns out it was a hernia pinching and killing part of her bowel so she has to have surgery right away. This leaves my disabled (in a wheelchair, paralyzed on the left side from a stroke) father-in-law with no one trained to take care of him.

And as everyone suggested, Replication health is back to normal now!
