Snakeice House of Beats Music Server Patch Maintenance

Performing OS maintenance patching on my music streaming and music relay servers. One server is running Linux Fedora and the other is running the application and database for the music I play along with hosting the music files.

Will be rebooting and then bringing the servers right back up after the patching and verification services are running.

Delicious Meals Ahi Tuna and Chili

This past week I had some good food adventures making Ahi tuna paired with my garden vegetables plus sticky rice and then made some chili a couple of days later also using garden vegetables. The tuna dish I kept simple with the fillets and used this for my base recipe: https://www.bowlofdelicious.com/six-minute-seared-ahi-tuna-steaks/ . The tuna turned out excellent with eggplant, green beans, tomatoes, jalapenos and okra from my garden brushed with olive oil then dusted with salt, pepper, garlic, fresh basil and rosemary on both sides. The okra I will never do like that again but the other vegetables turned out delicious. I used the sauce to marinate the tuna and made another batch for dipping, it was so good!

Next I took a chuck roast and placed it in brine overnight and cooked it nice and slow on my Traeger grill. The chuck roast came out with the right tenderness and flavor but when I put it back in it’s au jus which I didn’t taste beforehand it became too salty. I made a few side dishes the past days like tacos and breakfast dishes as I always do when I smoke meats but wanted to do something wholesale to be able to use this chuck roast and diffuse the salt and decided to make some chili. I used this recipe as the base: https://www.cookingclassy.com/slow-cooker-chili/ leaving out the salt and beef broth so I could soak the salt out of the chuck roast meat. I also added some more beef cut into taco meat sized chunks not totally ground and that worked out well. I used tomatoes from my garden plus come canned diced tomatoes. I put a habanero pepper from my garden to provide some kick!

I had a couple of spoons of the chili to test out while watching the Dodgers game and it was so delicious I decided to have a couple of small bowls late after the Dodgers beat the Braves and took first place from the SF Giants who lost to the Brewers.

The chili is so good but now I have to stay up late, wait for it to cool and put in the refrigerator where I already cleared space. The overnight process that will blend all the flavors and spices together will be awesome. The saltiness is gone from the chuck roast and I like the addition of that cocoa powder to the chili, which gives good depth. I just recently found the powdered cocoa on the very top shelf in my spice cabinet way to the back wondering when I would use it. Now I can’t wait to eat this chili out of a bowl traditionally, in breakfast meals and with foot long beef hot dogs I have with sesame seed gourmet buns. I may even freeze some of this chili!

Increased Drive Size Zoneminder CCTV and Plex Physical Server with Clonezilla

I bought a new larger hard drive locally and finally got a chance to increase the root size of my bl460 g7 blade server that serves as my CCTV Zoneminder system and Plex movie streaming system. The Plex database gets large due to the amount of media I have for Plex. The files are accessed via network, but the database stays local. I started running out of space on “/” because I didn’t feel the need to split off /var and I should have.

Anyhow I went from 146GB 15K SAS drive to a 15K 300GB SAS drive. I like to keep my boot drives fast as possible.

What I did was downloaded the latest ISO version of Clonezilla along with the latest version of Balenaetcher, which I used to burn Clonezilla to a USB making it bootable.

Once I booted into Clonezilla from the USB I created with Balenaetcher I used Clonezilla to create an image of my boot dive with “/” on to my NAS drive via NFS.  I then switched out my 146GB drive and put in my 300GB drive and restored the image to that drive. I then increased the partitions and voila I have a ton more space and could expand more if I needed.

Here’s the basic steps bulletized:

  • Created Clonezilla bootable USB using Balenaetcher from my Fedora Workstation
  • Booted off Clonezilla USB and copied boot image to FreeNAS via NFS
  • Shutdown system and took 146GB boot drive out and put in 300gb drive as replacement
  • During boot went into RAID utility and deleted 146GB virtual drive.
  • Still in RAID utility created new virtual 300gb drive to encompass full size of 300gb drive RAID0.
  • Booted back into Clonezilla Live USB and restored disk image from NAS via NFS.
  • Rebooted off the new drive into the OS successfully and verified everything was working
  • Deleted and extend the partition for “/” in fdisk.
# fdisk /dev/sda

Partition #2 contains a LVM2_member signature.

Do you want to remove the signature? [Y]es/[N]o: N

Command (m for help): w

Rebooted since the partition was busy.

# shutdown -r 0

After reboot I still don’t have enough physical extents to expand the logical volume.

I then extended the logical volume and filesystem:

  Size of logical volume cl/root changed from 50.00 GiB (12800 extents) to 100.00 GiB (25600 extents).
  Logical volume cl/root successfully resized.

Confirmed new filesystem size and system was operational and I was done.

  • Rebooted off the new drive into the OS successfully and verified everything was working
  • Deleted and extend the partition for “/” in fdisk.

I then extended the logical volume and filesystem:

]# lvextend -L 100G /dev/mapper/cl-root -r
  Size of logical volume cl/root changed from 50.00 GiB (12800 extents) to 100.00 GiB (25600 extents).
  Logical volume cl/root successfully resized.

Enchilada, Flowers and Gardening Weekend Start

Enchilada’s have become a new way to use my garden produce starting Friday for the beginning of this weekend. I used a mix of tomatoes and peppers from my garden cooked in a skillet and then pureed in a blender. I then used some of the pulled pork leftover from earlier this week and the dish turned out delicious!

Then for breakfast Saturday I used more of the enchilada sauce along with the leftover pulled pork. For breakfast I warmed the pulled pork in the skillet with a couple strips of bacon, started heating the enchilada sauce in a smaller skillet and then transferred the pulled pork to the smaller skillet with the enchilada sauce. In another skillet I cooked up some breakfast potatoes with onions and sweet peppers from the garden. After moving the pulled pork and bacon out of the larger skillet I washed it down and heated up some corn tortillas and then built a delicious enchilada style breakfast treat.

After minor kitchen cleanup I still wanted to keep going to work off the enchilada treats and clipped my bushes and roses in the front yard and then went out back and trimmed the grass and did a little straightening up.

I then put some roses I inadvertently clipped in a rose vase one of my bars.

A nice active start to a mild weathered Saturday with decent air quality I was determined to take advantage of.

I used this recipe https://www.asweetpeachef.com/homemade-enchilada-sauce/ with changes of Poblano chili and Serrano pepper with Early Girl, Black Plum and Lemon tomatoes and a touch of cinnamon.

Here’s the pictures:

More Garden Themed Dishes

This is just some pictures with short captions of what’s going of how I include my garden in what I eat the past few weeks. Eating these veggies is hat my body asks for when i’m getting into my workouts. When I smoke thee meats ?I normally eat of of what I smoked for 4 or 5 days with some dished overlapping for variety.

I even threw in some pictures of my maintenance of my watering drip system I built over 15 years ago by myself for my gardens. I always make things for minimal work if I have to perform maintenance it it paid off as I was able to make a quick replacement of pipes with ease.

Variety of tomatoes with jalapeno peppers, basil and tarragon with homemade I originally had left over from some wings with a sesame theme.
Burgers with Beek eater tomatoes and swiss chard from the garden.

Time for Monday Workouts

Getting in another Monday workout and pumping up the music to make it manic! I went a bit off of the weights to focus on the cardio to get the wind up but now mixing the weights back into the workouts. So a little more indoors workouts but will still get in some pool work after the weights and treadmill.

With the indoor time to workout will have some hip-hop classics, rock classics and present artists like Nina Simone, YG & Mozzy, Queen, Kurtis Blow, HRSMN and the list goes on! Let’s workout!

Comments Off on Massive Garden Produce Harvest for the Day

Massive Garden Produce Harvest for the Day

I had a massive harvest today partially due to not picking produce everyday for the past week. So much else has been popping up I got out of my routine. I didn’t want to pick items without being ready to do something with the produce and that caught up to me big time!

I ended up with huge zucchini squash hidden by the big leaves, tons of Early Girl, Beef Eater, lemon boy ,a few yellow plum, black plum, and husky red cherry tomatoes. Got some more huge jalapeno peppers, Serrano, Poblano, sweet orange peppers plus orange and red habanero peppers. I got some more Ichiban eggplants, cucumber and picked my first bunch of green beans.

After working around in the computer room all day I had neglected getting my dinner ready which was going to be a whole chicken so I did that on my Traeger smoker and then cut up some produce and grilled that on my gas grill. Basically cut up squash, jalapeno, habanero, eggplant, sweet orange peppers, tomatoes along with rosemary, sage, purple and sweet basil from the garden thrown together I just brushed them up with some balsamic vinegar and dressing, garlic, coarse kosher salt and pepper.

Though it was a late dinner it was tasty with some leftovers for tomorrow. Chicken was fall off the bone tender and still moist and the veggies nicely complemented each other with that roasted flavor. I stay up late a lot anyway so I still will not go to bed within 3 or 4 hours of eating.

Next figuring out my different methods of preserving which will include bagging, pureeing, freezing and maybe even canning. I seriously don’t have much space for storage anywhere now which will need to be resolved but I always find a solution!
