Updating hardware/configuration. Thanks for your patience.
Recently suffered a power supply failure on my trusty old AMD machine. As it was 5+ years old, had at a minimum Fedora 15, 16, and 17 updated upon one another, and was beginning to show its’ age; the decision was made to upgrade. Thus, the AMD box is now a dedicated server. It has a new SSD drive along with new internet service. Upgraded to business class w/5 IP block. Twice as fast (10 Mbps) as it was.
New workstation is awe inspiring. Built it from parts via Newegg. Intel I7 hexacore processor, 64Gb RAM, 2011 Motherboard. Still smiling. More to follow.
I have made the decision to retire my old stale content. Fresh disk, fresh install, may as well have fresh content. Saved my golf course directory and my disclaimer.
Site content will vary. Mostly posts remind me how to do something, or to remember where I can find solutions. On odd occasions someone finds a post useful. Site is maintained at my discretion as time allows.
It is still hard to beat a great radio station. It’s not always easy to find one when you want one. Here are a couple that I really enjoy listening to. Hope you do, too!
KSEY This station plays REAL country music. You know…the Nashville Sound. They play some good bluegrass, too. It is sort of a time machine that takes you back to about 1965 or so. Their website could stand a makeover, but the music is all that really matters.
BluesRadioUK Best blues on the planet! They play NO bad songs. http://18.104.22.168:8430 if you have a player.
WUNC This one is local. On nearly always when I’m driving. Back Porch Music is on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, 8PM – Midnite EST. They play a good mix of Carolina music, often some quite rare stuff. Hope to see you there!

For Fedora 18: To remove “rngd service” that won’t start try ‘systemctl –noreload disable rngd.service’ as root.
