Today's issue: It can't be DNS, It can't be DNS...It's DNS..
FUN TWIST: The lack of DNS has knocked out our WiFi. And I'm 99% sure our DNS VMs were on that server I broke...
Trying to change an ethernet port to make it available to me to be able to remote into a server and work from there...Then I'll shut down one of our other host servers (one with more capacity) and salvage two fans from there. Then i'll bring the other host back up...
I have a feeling I'm going to be here all night.
US Gun Violence
I have generally stopped commenting on social media about the tragedy of school shootings here in the US. Not out of apathy, but because I've run out of words to say about it.

Instead, our society will continue burying its head in the sand and focus their rage on other, far less urgent matters.

Linux people, I am hiring systems administrators! We work with scientific data, containers, big-ass tape libraries, supercomputers, and everything in between. We pay relocation, and you'd even get an actual honest-to-god pension.
It's amazing how one sought after positive interaction can change my mood in a matter of seconds. Something had been weighing me down (not going into it here) and it's been temporarily lifted, and now my brain is actually firing on all cylinders.
I'm hoping this trend continues, this is a good feeling.
