New Door

So I haven’t been real happy with the front door. It was held closed with hopes and dreams with a crappy frame.

So I picked this up with a little prodding from my mother. It’s a mid-century style door and I think it will look nice with the white exterior and the orange tones in the bricks.

It’s really hard to take photos and do work for this kind of thing.

Door installed. I need to re-install the door trim in this photo and I still need to hang brickmould outside. The doorway came with 36″x80″ trim for the exterior, but the brick around the entryway is more like 38″x80″. I need to find some matching trim at Home Depot. I checked and I’m pretty sure that the trim they sell individually is an exact match for the door since this door came from Home Depot. It’s too cold to paint around the door trim currently. So I’m probably going to hold off on it until it warms up a bit.

Cable Management

So I wasn’t happy with the cable management after I moved the old switch into the rack and was preparing for the SAN.

This wasn’t terribly messy, but I think I can do better.

So I did. I moved the cables for the servers to the right side so they would run up the edge of the rack more cleanly.

I’m pretty happy with the final product after I got the SAN installed and wired up.

You can see here I’m not bothering with the secondary NIC on either of the controllers. I don’t have a secondary switch in case of failure. It’s also not that big of a deal to me at this time since I do have redundant controllers.

It snowed

So I took off to St. Peterburg, Florida for a work Christmas Party on December 8th. It snowed in Baton Rouge.

So I asked my roommate to snap some photos since I wasn’t home.

I kinda wish I would’ve been here. Mostly to experience the snowfall in Louisiana.

I’m almost caught up to current again. Probably 2 more posts and I’ll be current.
