Thanksgiving week of 2022

2022-12-01 1 min read Blog Chris Allen
Thanksgiving week kind of sucks for me. We had my birthday party at my mother-in-law’s house on Sunday. I wasn’t feeling too well then, but Monday it hit me and I stay in bed almost all day Monday through Thursday. Also, Weds was my birthday so It was a bad birthday. In other news, I still haven’t found a computer job yet and still looking. I am also working on a few youtube videos but because I have been sick, I haven’t felt like doing that much.

I am currently looking for a good-paying job. I have had a few interviews in the last few days. Most of the jobs they want to offer me were not for me or had low pay. While I wait on finding a good job, I am doing some gig work like door dash, uber eats and GrubHub mostly in west Wichita. I have also been working on this website and https://computerhacking101.

I am adding a few features and using a different theme for this website. Currently, I have added a search engine where you click just click the magnifying glass in the top right corner to search for things on this website. I am planning on adding a few more features soon. It currently only has a white background but I am planning on adding dark mode back soon. There might be a few pages still missing. Continue reading

The past couple of weeks has been crazy. My contract work got canceled because they didn’t realize how much it would cost to have it installed. They have done this before also with other projects. They start it and never finish it. I am having issues getting my 1u Proxmox server up and running. I didn’t realize you had to have a raid interface when I bought it. Some of the power cords are not long enough. Continue reading

I started to move my Proxmox server to my 1u case and ran into a couple of problems. One is easily fixed and for the other one I will have to wait for a while. I am going to have to move the stand-offs for the motherboard. I just have to get a different wrench set. I lost the one I need of course. For the other one, I will have to wait until the heat sync company sends me the correct heat sync. Continue reading
