Liquid Comet at Gym

This evening at the gym while doing last reps of dumbbell presses laying flat on my back looking up to the ceiling working my gum in my mouth exhaling through my mouth, I blew a perfectly formed pearl of small liquid with a comet like trail of beads behind it. This perfectly clear beads of liquid I could see every drop in the comet like trail clearly as I was mid rep pushing the dumbbells the drops hit their apex gave way to gravity coming down in a perfect arch right into my left eye as I was fully extended on that rep. It looked like art in the that short span of time.

    Back to Grindstone Work Out Beats

    Getting my booty back into the gym after the longest layoff of my life since the 6th grade due to a mix of injuries in lower, mid and upper extremities of my body plus some crazy scheduling of private pursuits moving things around and being sick this past week.  No matter the shape I’m in I go hard so used this time to get fully healed, that’s the only plus because I should have done a little bit to stay in touch with my fitness as I normally do. Now I have to stop doing things that got me injured, but what fun is that. 😉

    This is a mix where I invite you to listen in on one of my private work out mixes as I have in the past. I’m going to start slow as I will with my workout but hey I have to have the hard and wild so if you want PC language and topics kindly don’t listen unless you just have to! All genres and eras will be present.

    A sample of who you ask, well here are some artists: Rose Royce, Azealia Banks, George Clinton, Def Leppard, Stalley, Brotha Lynch Hung, Beanie Man and so much more!

    Late Night Wild Not Leave it to Beaver Mix

    I already kicked it off with some old school R&B now moving into the hip-hop era and then going to get into some hard core and then just continue blowing it out there hitting some hard rock along the way and anything wild from any era and genre I think fits into the mix.

    So yeah if you are looking for some of the “oh golly gee Beaver” stuff then this is the wrong place for you. Should you just want to feel that wild vibe and don’t mind a little non-pc and a bit of language in a fun manner stay tuned!

    Them later I will slide into a little mellow late night groove.

    Some of the artists: Red Cafe, Remy Ma, Pooh-Man, D12, Eminem, 2Pac, Lana Del Rey, Prince, Corinne Bailey Rae and a bunch more!

    Comments Off on Rebuilt XenServer Slave

    Rebuilt XenServer Slave

    I rebuilt my XenServer slave tonight after it didn’t come back up properly last week after a power failure where I decided to ride it out on my UPS and not properly shutdown a few of my systems. The only system that had issues was this XenServer slave and since it wasn’t running my important VM’s at the time I decided to perform some more important non-computer related projects until tonight. Really the only thing that prompted me tonight to do this was I wanted to install Fedora 24 Server on a VM and I recalled I needed to get this XenServer hosts up and running.

    Well the thing was it didn’t recognize and of my NIC’s built into my motherboard though they were enabled and showing properly in the bios. After several restarts and insuring cabling was correct I ended up having to remove power completely and power the system up, reset the bios and then reconfigure my bios settings to get the onboard NIC’s recognized finally.

    Things were so corrupted with XenServer that even after that the onboard NIC’s weren’t recognized so  I decided to reinstall since the VM’s are all on my NAS that I run FreeNAS on anyway and not local to the XenServer host. Had I needed I could have always run the VM’s on the master XenServer host.

    Anyhow I reinstalled,  XenServer 6.5 and tried to add it to the existing pool but it wouldn’t let me join the pool until I was patched up properly plus I still needed to destroy the old XnServer remnant name.

    I tried destroying the old XenServer name out of the shared pool but couldn’t since the VM’s that were running on that hosts were still in a quasi running state. I found this article “http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX126382”  and followed that to shutdown the VM’s:

    • xe host-list
    • xe vm-list resident-on=<UUID of XenServer host I wish to take out of pool>
    • xe vm-reset-powerstate uuid=<UUID of VM’s still on powered on state on above host>
    • Went to XenCenter -> Right-Clicked-> Destroy -> Remove failed XenServer host

    In XenCenter I then went to Tools -> Install Update -> Showed patch that was installed in Master but not on newly installed system and just followed the GUI instructions and it pushed the patch from the Master to the slave and I was then able to join the freshly installed XenServer into the shared pool. I then configured the storage networks, placed the XenServer slave into maintenance mode and turned on multipathing. Restarted my other VM’s and they are now running on the XenServer slave and I’m back up and fully running in redundant mode again!

      Another Healthy Home Garden Based Meal

      The garden is starting to produce more than just the dominant swiss chard now, with some beans, chives, rosemary plus the swiss chard paired with medium rare trip tip that pulled apart with fingers. SautĂ©ed the swiss char with the rosemary, basil, chives with a touch of brown sugar since I didn’t have any oyster sauce and some garlic in my wok then my friend she came up with the idea to grill the green beans on grill with garlic, salt and olive oil. All turned out excellent didn’t get finishing shots since the wine was flowing and started making plates and eating right away.
