So, since the mobile test post was a success I figured I’d do a real update, only problem will be what to post and where to start.
New job is still going well. Still have a but to learn about processes and the like, which is ,such easier said than done seeing as every account is different in its setup and support. My first on-call week is pending in 2 weeks, not exactly looking forward to that. Just as I am not exactly looking forward to jumping into my first solo account from start, that’s probably due to only semi-shadowing a co-worker on one account, so I still don’t feel like I really know what I’m doing, but we’all see how it goes. Had a team meeting this past Friday in Baltimore. Hanging out, food and an Orioles game. Was a really good day, showered a little bit during the game, but nothing a serious and no delay during due to rain. The game did get started about an hour late due to a building thunder/lightning storm that never really came through, no biggie though.
To update back a bit, my WHS2011 box in its original configuration pretty much died a horrible death. Luckily no data was lost this time around due to the ridiculous RAID configuration I had going. It has since been resurrected in a new box and with an entirely different setup. Instead of going the nutso hardware RAID I opted for a more sane software based configuration by way of a piece of software called Drive Bender. Great software designed for Windows 7, Server 2008 and/or WHS2011. Very easy to use and it updates nicely when there are updates. I am very impressed by the software and hope it lives up to its promises, in the event of a drive failure, not that I want a drive to fail or anything.
Done a little bit of showey work to the car recently. I got the rims powder coated a mat black and I painted the calipers a bright red. Looks fantastic, got one sexy ass beast of a car now if I do say so myself. Only thing left to do is to sand and paint the center caps for the wheels.
