    One thing I don't enjoy doing is setting up a new computer.. Me, when it comes to computers, I'm a gas and go kina guy... That's why I let my baby sister do the important maintenance.. LOL!!.. She's awesome with computers... I figure if something big happens, just call her, no need worry about it..

    Try going up to your webmail page for your account and check in the Spam folder... I know my ISP's spam rules or whatever they call them suck and even email's I've whitelisted end up in there, so it's the first place I tell people to look.

    Rob, we are having a little issue with our email server right now. I will try to get it working soon.

    Ivan, thank you for the follow on the other channel.

    URI, I usually go live between 2130 and 2200 central. Just depends on if I have to work a little late.

    I'm having the same problem getting mail too :(. I've checked my spam and nothing. Yeah Tony, I wanted to see what kind of new toy you have the chance to play with Lol. I didn't make twitch last night due to no notification but I imagine there will be some more down the road :).

    The twitch notification will come from them. It's best to install twitch on your phone or tablet and sign in. It will push notifications that way.

    As for email on this website, I am working on the issue. It's going to take a bit though.

    Safe bet is to go to twitch at about 10pm central time. I'm usually on at that time during the week.

    I started to deploy my mail server. I failed to achieve said task. While the server is running, I can connect to the server via a client, view my inbox and read email. What I cant do is send email because it keeps asking for a password. I give it the user password and it says nope, no way try again. So I do, and it just keeps failing. So my config in dovecot needs to be looked at.

    My goal was to get the entire infrastructure built then convert it to secure. I wanted everything running smooth. That way if something brakes I'll know if it was the security or not. Anyhow back at it tomorrow.

    Super cool!! I have faith in your guys' capability..

    Me on the other hand, not so sure.. Just before I was going to do the last ditch effort to fix the freezer/refrigerator, I see this li'll black bug fly into to house. It lands on the drapes. I figure it's really small and no threat so I grab it,, BIG mistake!! In NO time, this little :censored: :censored: :censored:,,, BIT ME!!!! I'm telling you I never saw this kind of tiny bug before but thought it was harmless.. This thing carved out a quarter inch long gouged in my hand! RED Alert!!

    I start to freak a bit because it's burn'n like crazy!. Anyway I attracted some attention from the other two that live here but there was nothing they could do. HA! One said, "can you not swear so much"?? I Just responded, "that's easy for you to say"!!! HA! I can't believe this little :censored: had that much power!..

    Fortunately it only lasted really bad for only 30 minutes.. Back to work on the freezer/refrigerator.... Keep working!!

    Ok, I got good news and I got bad news..
    First the good news. The good news is I found the problem with the refrigerator and freezer..
    The bad news is that the problem is a blockage in the system and it can't be fixed with out spending big bucks. After only 7 years this pos is finished. See what I mean guys!? This is a crime! I'm going to send back the parts, eat the sipping and write it off... The best part about this case is I learned how the system really works. Cars are different. They don't have freezers and defrosters... I'm still waiting for the close washer parts to come in and the dishwasher to come in. The water heater job turned out good and so did the repair on the cars AC problem. (Air mix motor went south)…

    Tony, I hope you're solving your computer problems too. Computers,, you can't live with'm and you can't live without'm…..

    I hit paydirt today. I got a Cisco 5540 ASA firewall and 2811 router. Yes both are no longer supported and end of life. Guess what? it still helps with leaning cisco and how it all works together. My lab just grew by a router and a firewall. I am getting closer to making a kali linux box to test my security and learn wireshark.

    I just found out my x wife was in contact with a Floridian that was visiting her branch office. Cone to find out he was a carrier at the time of visit to my x wife office.

    I don't know if she or my kids are carriers or even infected. So now I cant visit my kids. Fingers crossed.

    In my county we just reported our second case yesterday. So for now we are just playing day by day.

    Still keeping my mind active by working on my network lab.

    The good news is that the drug Hydroxy Chloroquine (which I'm very familiar with) because of my Lupus, is showing great promise. I took it for about seven years until my Lupus was in remission. Actually I also had to stop the drug because it causes a problem in the back of the eyes after long exposure. But that's only happens when taken for a very long time like me.. I need to talk to my doc about if I get the bug, can I go back on the Hydroxy Chloroquine? I bet I can because it'll only be for a very short time..

    I have a feeling it's going to get worst before it get's better.. But this is the good ole USA, and as always we're going to save the world from another communist screw up...
    Just stay clean and keep your distance and exercise some common sense...……….
    Good luck all!!…….….

    Sorry I have been MIA everyone. Been killing it at work and just flat don't want to type after doing it all day long at work. I will try to get back into the swing of things. Times are tough right now, but we are trying to make the best of it.

    So, since I have been on here, things in the world have changed. I'm sure you all know about all of that. If you don't, you are living under a rock. We are good at my house. We are getting ready to do a full maintenance on my tractor and get the garden tilled in and ready for this season. We will be planting more than usual this year considering the world right now. We feel that we need to be as self sustainable as we can be.

    Speaking of that, we are adding another dozen hens to the coop and we will be processing the older hens and the excess roosters we have and putting them in the freezer for a later time. At this time, we have 6 roosters and we only need one. So that is 5 good size birds right there. We have I think 6 old hens that are no longer laying that well so that gives us a dozen chickens that we can process and freeze. Before anyone asks, yes, you can eat the laying hens and roosters, the meat is just a little tougher, which makes them perfect for slow smoking and soups and stews. Since they are more active than a regular meat chicken that you buy at your grocery store, the meat is a little darker all over rather than being white meat. More Flavor!

    Other than working and trying to get supplies in case they do quarantine everyone, things are pretty normal around here. No flying thanks to the FAA which has me not doing videos anymore. Last thing I need is video proof of committing a felony lol. At least at last check it was a felony. Might have changed that. Don't keep up with that crap anymore.

    Thank you all for posting on here and thanks to everyone who has been helping in answering questions on here in my absence. It really does mean a lot to me.

    Square Enix is giving away ( until Monday March 31st, 2020 ) copies two of their older Tomb Raider games for free.... Tomb Raider ( Steam Edition ) ( 2013 ) and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris ( Steam Edition ) ... So now I'll have 4 different games from this series.

    For instructions on how to get them free... See https://t.co/wWeWWuZ7Bv?amp=1

    Please note, the website seems pretty busy, it took a long time to load. So be patient and/or try again later.

    Today was an expensive day. Got a bunch pi might have follow upon that.

    Today I got closer to finishing off the AR15 build. I have a lower sitting in the basement waiting on the upper. The Upper is going to be in route shortly from Indiana via USPS. I hope it gets out before any shutdown.

    Today I ordered 5 mags and a sling which is needed. I have a 30 rnd at the house already. The mags I got are 20rnd which actually makes sense since boxes are sold in 20 rnd qty. Anyhow all I need now is ammo because if you dont fee it it wont work. I will continue to hunt down rifle food as the next days go by.

    That's my update, still not sick and trying to not to over panic like everyone is. Yes it's bad but at the same time it's not as bad as it being made out to be. The biggest thing is making sure that the weak and elderly stay safe. We healthy younger folks will make it just fine.

    If I have your contact info I will doing statis checks on you. Stay safe.

    The only problem here in Florida is that all the old people, no offence, I'm old too, come here to retire. So there's plenty of weak and elderly indivuals everywhere in this state. It's not bad around the area where I live but that doesn't mean anything. The wife and I are pretty much ready and we really dont go anywhere in the first place. I go to the park to fly once a week but that's about it beside doctors appointment, grocery stores and feed store. All we can do is use proper cleansing of hands, keep distance away from others and if your sick...just stay home. If we all work together...we can beat this. It will only make us stronger in the end. Be smart and safe. God bless everyone from my wife and my self :).
