  • Server Frustrations

    So after a long day at work with my coughing fits and congested head, I got to come home and spend over three hours attempting to repair my server.  Apparently the root drive of my Debian install filled up for some reason last night.  Usually its simple to fix, but this time it wasn’t the usual “too many old kernels” issue.  In the end I couldn’t figure out what to remove safely, so I ended up restoring to a backup I had created in November.

    This worked, and actually revealed to me what HAD to have eaten up all the space – Plex.  Now my video library is on a different partition, but the server software itself downloads tons and tons of metadata, in the form of pictures, posters, backgrounds, tv show music, actors, etc etc.  I realized this after loading Plex back up and seeing all the data it had to re-download and regenerate.  I managed to move the storage of all this crap onto the big partition before I spent an hour and a half fixing it all.

    Now I just have to do over 230 updates to get Debian back up to where it was.  On the bright side, there is now plenty of free space on the thing.  Stupid server.

  • You have got to be kidding me.

    I got my new debit card this morning. So after work, I went to the ATM to activate it.  Apparently my old PIN is no good.  I had to wait a fucking week for the card to come, now God only knows how long I need to wait for the PIN to show up.  Or I could drive my ass all the way up to Hampden, (during business hours while I'm working mind you), and activate it at their branch.

    I would like to personally thank my bank for screwing with my life for over a week now.  I just want to access my damn money!!

    SIDE NOTE: To top this mood of mine off, while typing up this post I got a phone call telling me the factory warranty on my new vehicle is about to expire. I BOUGHT IT USED!!! THERE IS NO FACTORY WARRANTY!!!!

  • Minecraft idea of madness

    My brother came up with an idea for a use for my ridiculous Minecraft world.  I'm honestly not sure if its brilliant, insane, pure genius, or just plain madness.  He and his friends are starting up a Dungeons and Dragons game. His idea was to use my Minecraft World as the setting for a campaign!  Apparently in the new edition (I've never really played), you need visuals or maps or something.  Sounds like a neat idea to me.  AND it gives a purpose to my madness!!!  (insert maniacal laughter here)
