Was able to get most of my fishing rods off the garage floor. The large surf rods I ended up breaking them down in half. I also got my most used rods closer to the ground. I still have some work to do to get my stragglers plus my telescopic rods I’ll just hang off hooks.
Now getting ready for a late Sunday evening dinner with a spatchcock chicken. I did a brine with orange zest, rosemary, apple juice, salt and pepper. Then after washing the brine off today seasoned with butter, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper under the skin and on the skin.

I chose to keep the music streams down while I perform some system maintenance after some infrastructure issues I had earlier this week due to a power fluctuation. Took me a while to come up with a viable workaround while I determined the actual issues. Being under the weather with little sleep earlier this week also delayed the troubleshooting.
I’m currently moving my relay server to a new storage repository after the one it was on was corrupted shared from my FreeNAS system. Strangely enough the relay server seemed to be the only VM not previously affected by the corruption but after a reboot of the storage with a new disk and then bringing it up it had some filesystem corruption. I decided I will migrate it to a temporary new storage repository in my XCP-ng and then bring it up and fix the filesystem.
Will be back streaming soon and have the full story of this crash and the many steps to get back up and how the subsequent in motion reconfiguration and making the infrastructure more resilient at https://dhoytt.com/mainblog/.

After a power outage due to Atmospheric River Storms in west and in California my music server was down for a while even after the power came back up. One of the power supplies in my C7000 chassis didn’t allow all of my blade servers to come up right away since it didn’t come online right away. The power supply finally cam up along with the music server on that blade. I’ll need to replace that power supply as that’s the second time this has happened in the recent storms. This also happened New Year’s Eve 2023.

During the “Atmospheric River” storms here out west in California I lost house power where I run my systems. I have not established a geographical fall over for these sites when my home systems go down as it hasn’t been a priority. I do have some pages setup but I haven’t visited that in a while.
After the power was restored one of my power supplies in my C7000 chassis didn’t come up. Due to that power supply not coming up I couldn’t bring up all my server blades online. I chose to keep my music server off and let my 2 blades I use for virtual systems to stay up though I didn’t bring the virtual servers online. My NAS storage came up just fine once again as well. I decided to take care of things like lining up estimates on damaged fencing instead and then watched some football.
Coming back into my computer room this evening I noticed the music streaming system booted up and the power supply was back online. This is the second time this happened, the last time being the prior storm on New Years Eve that took power out. I’ll pick up a couple of spare c7000 110v (398026-001) power supplies that I have already run down from a local source.
Outside of that back up and running as usual.

Updated the entire site to the latest version and got my WordPress mobile app synced properly with my new iPhone as well. I also fixed the sync from some of the other blogs in this multi-site installation so they should update the main blog automatically again.
I’ll work on the menus soon and a number of other items.

A cooking journey for the past month. Beef shanks mid-November, Thanksgiving juicy tender brisket and smoked Turkey. Monday red pepper/honey wings. Then reached into the freezer for vacuum packed pulled pork (tasted like I just cooked it after boiling the bag and opening)from February 2 2022 and made soup today with late squash and herbs from the garden. Perfect for the cold weather. Was feeling picky about what I wanted to eat.
This is a repost from my Facebook page to test my updated WordPress mobile app and site.

Set up the typical mixed genre Snakeice’s House of Beats type mix with a series of songs per genre but with mixed eras for this cold Thursday evening. Towards the end of the night it will all be dedicated to the smoot and mellow sounds.
The type of artists are Sean Paul & Tove Lo, DVSN, Sweet Sensation, Prince, Last Poets, Celtic Woman, Sam Smith and Tony Tribe a very eclectic yet cohesive sound. None of that one genre to listen to mess!
I don’t always post but I’m always throwing in special sets from time to time.
