December 26th Power Outage

Well, looking to see if there was a kluge to prevent the disaster to my home network that the power outage caused.

I noticed that my desktop is set to LAST for power recovery. Then I remembered that it is the only system with a UPS link, and that the UPS probably told it turn off moments before it stopped completely. So, when power returned, it stayed off.

So, browsing through the event log.

I see power blinked a couple times around 00:38. But, later went out completely at 07:36:21.... And, then 11 minutes later (@ 07:47:03) reported that my network connection dropped. That would be the overworked UPS the runs my Linux box, the WiRNS/DVArchive/Poopli Server and all my networking equipment. Perhaps an upgrade or a spreading of the load is in order.

30 seconds later, my machine started its shutdown. No immediate plans to replace its UPS....

No idea when the UPS for my phone stuff tanked....Might move the network stuff over to that UPS. And, put the old APC 500VA UPS back into service for the WiRNS/DVArchive/Poopli Server.

Don't really want to buy more UPSs.

Why Asparagus Makes Your Pee Stink


This question came up while I was on holidays....

I had clipped an article a while back, but couldn't recall the source. So, I've decided it was time to put the details somewhere that I can find it. &#59;)

Booked the Cruise

Well, I finally got of my lazy tail, and booked the cruise that I want to take on June 20th.

Gonna see Alaska.

I guess I waited one day too long, because the 1 night hotel pre-cruise stay wasn't available anymore. So, I'll have to settle with hoping that I can make it in on time by air on the day of the cruise start.

Hopefully it won't be like my Xmas trip to Calgary. Though 5 years ago when I went on my last cruise there were also weather related flight delays and I came very close to missing the start of my cruise.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
