I’m thinking it’s time to start consolidating servers (currently running 3, Dell C1100, Dell PowerEdge R510 and Dell PowerEdge R620). I love them all but power consumption is becoming a problem. I can probably get that down to at least 2 servers easily. I somewhat need the R510 as it’s my file server 12TB, RAID 6. Maybe I don’t need the 2 x Cisco 3750X switches either. Perhaps I could replace one with a smaller managed PoE switch. Also need to figure out what I can replace with RPi’s.
Decent so far, though, I'm still not a huge fan of modern Gnome.
It just makes my 1920x1080 resolution feel like 1280x720 or something.
I guess now I'm going to need some sort of IP helper-address for dhcpv6 on my VLAN subnets. I have a feeling my head might hurt a little by the end of all this.
TFW> You made something far more difficult than it needed to be. For those following along:
- New bulk water measuring system.
- Gives us files with a strange extension.
- Files are basically .csv but with a whole bunch of NULL characters
- I write a quick C# program to remove the NULL characters
WELL. It turns out that if you just change the file extension to .csv, Excel will just IGNORE ALL THE NULL CHARACTERS ANYWAY.
So I spent a morning writing a program that was completely unnecessary.
I was going to say I wasted a morning but maybe it wasn't a waste because I at least learned how to read in and write out files in C#?
I watch over the stuff with blinky lights. Pretty boring and entirely unremarkable.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
