Santa is my homeboy.

I'll feed old Grimnir's reindeer and leave him a snack.

It's ok to transition from knowing he is real, to knowing he is not, to knowing that the spirit is something we can all experience.





Adding "enterprise data recovery" to my business cards now.

So just as @sundog faces the task of righting the Good Ship Toot-Lab I discover a failed power supply in my own rig. Second time this has happened to my setup in the last couple of years.

Luckily the backup kicked in and service was not interrupted.

This is more motivation to look into packing the 2U space with a cluster of low powered SBCs as a replacement. Like, for the cost of one server I could get a couple dozen little boards and reduce the impact of any given point of failure.

Guess it's time for me to wake up and start committing more crimes against computing infrastructure

About 25gb of pdf's on everything from farming and traditional crafts to emergency medical care and election organization. All in .iso format for burning to disc.

Then, before I boot their new instantiation, I'll yank their network so I have a chance to fix some configs before letting them loose on the world at large again.

Since the backup taking is going to go on for another few hours, in the morning I will mount the actual filesystems and dd them across the network to the hard drives on which they'll be living for a while because why not really.

everything seems to be working. :flan_fingers_crossed:
