Thinking again about Tour Forello, a building in Tanjombato, Madagascar (a couple of miles from my home) that sits right in the middle of the street because it was built over the footprint of a former roundabout.

On two occasions before I replaced the office fileserver with a synology nas I had to remove it from the server closet, rock it like a baby while cooing lovingly, and then plug it back in before it would boot.

Just a random IT hell story.

If anyone out there has a #gemini capsule they like reading or run one yourself, let me know! I want more places to visit in Gemini space.

Boost accordingly if you know anyone else who'd like to share. I'll try to compile links into a big toot later for anyone else looking for more capsules to check out. =D

I have the only linux desktop at work and they haven't fired me yet.

Album of pics from the inside of the handle for a nissan leaf charging cable. The latch broke and I fixed it.

I think my favourite IT story (not mine) is the server that needed to be rebooted whenever it froze completely. The mcguyver solution? Get an old pc with a CD drive, and every time it loses connection to the server it ejects the CD tray, which has a poking stick attached, which hits the reset button.

The line between genius and insanity was definitely blurry there.
