A new version of ExTiX Light 14.1.2 64 bit is ready!

Posted 08-15-2014 at 04:29 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

(Razor-qt is an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and an intuitive interface).

Have not posted in a long time

I have not posted to my Blog I have been busy with things. After about many many years I am loosing interest in computing. I'm going to be also changing/removing some services like Internet, Phone to less costly. Even though that is hard to find just got to use less to meet the metered/costly situation in my country until Google Fiber reaches me. As long as it does not impact my work I'll be fine with more limited for now.

nagios plugin check_md_raid: adapt to treat routine checks normally

The problem

At least on Debian, md arrays are routinely checked monthly by /etc/cron.d/mdadm. During the check, the nagios plugin check_md_raid generates critical alerts.

The solution

In /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_md_raid, change
re_clean = re.compile('^clean(, no-errors)? $')
re_clean = re.compile('^clean(, (checking|no-errors))? $')

Just got a contractor to setup a C6 base pad for the new Shop building. The base took 32 tons of C6 rock. The building is due for completion in 3 weeks. I will need to run the power underground with tie in to a sub-circuit in the house. Service head is large enough to support expansion. It won't be long before I start moving tools to the shop. Really anxious now to get this project closed so I can get more work done before summers end.
