Tue Jan 14 08:57:28 EST 2015. Beverly Hills, MI Slept somewhat better. Morning glitters white, like a Christmas postcard. Goals for today: Work: - Read up on on Vyatta - Learn more about Microsoft licensing - Start the application for a New Egg business account Account created. Waiting for approval of net 30 credit line. - Write notes for business team meeting tomorrow Nope. In the morning. - Decide what to do about SFTP server. Set up at least a stop-gap server. Set up on OpenBSD vpn server as a temporary measure. However, I need config clarification from the vendor. I emailed them. - Review dependencies for 2015 IT projects Yes, though not complete. Home: - Download a Debian Testing iso, and burn it to CD. Done. - Back up home machine; reinstall on new SSD Backup done. Installation of new SSD done. Install of Jessie done. Finished restoring the majority of backup files. Still need to do some configuration, reinstall packages, etc. Basic environment is restored, though. It's going to be tough living with 500GB of disk space instead of 4TB. I may buy another 500 before too long. - Laundry. Done. Questions: - What's the deal with IPMI ports? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligent_Platform_Management_Interface Supermicro's IPMIView utility even offers some sort of KVM over IP functionality. Also interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watchdog_timer - What's the easiest way to burn a CD on Debian again? I can't find the easy CLI utility I last used, but Xfburn is an easy GUI app. (P.S.---possibly I was thinking of xorriso.)
