    I only use either lump, or I make my own coals out of Hickory or Pecan that I have stacked up behind my house. Kingsford just has too many fillers and binders in their stuff, but I will use it in a pinch. Just more ash to clean out when I'm done lol.

    I dont always use kingsford. Right now I have some cheap stuff. It gets the job done. As for wood chips, I still have to buy mine. I do have a small supply now.

    I need to get more cherry and hickory. I use a lot of hickory especial on pork. I am thinking of doing some ribs soon. I miss my ribs. Hell I may even do a whole chicken.

    More floor work stretching the carpet then I get to fix a leak under my kitchen sink. Projects are being added to the list faster than I can get them taken care of. I still need to get the money to do a full service on my tractor so that I can do a little cleaning up around the property, need to clean the garage, barn and sheds, need to finish out the garden to get it ready for this season, need to run new network cable (and purchase) to my grandmas house, need to install about 16 new IP cameras, need to build a new rack for my servers, need to figure out why in the HELL windows up date is causing my computer not to start, need to redo my deck in front, need to build a new deck in the back, need to do an oil change on the wifes car, need to cancel insurance on my camaro and start parting it out.............

    The list keeps going. One of these days, I will be able to just kick back and chill..... But not today...

    Tried watching the 500 today, however it is still all about the commercials and drug companies.

    Last year, or the year before, can't remember which, they started this segmented racing crap. That is when I stopped watching. Seems they are still doing it, so the only nascar that I will be watching/joining in will be in iRacing. I'm done with watching it on TV...

    What is with the Camaro? Yea, the commercials suck. I just use it for the news and the old movie channels.

    I like having my own house, but no so much working on it. I replaced every piece on my kitchen sink and need to start on the bathrooms.

    In other news we got 7" of rain last week and it is flooding in places. And of course the forecast is rain.

    Camaro is old, and somehow tossed a cam bearing out of the engine. Well, it is out of the engine now anyway. Found it in the oil pan when I went to replace the oil pump thinking my low oil pressure was due to a broke pressure spring. But nope, it was a bearing.

    That and the car is just tired.. Need to find a new shell or something. Figure part it out, get what money I can out of it, then scrap it for a bill or so.

    Really need to get me a new truck, but yea, broke as a joke right now.

    How old is old? What ya got?

    I had to sell my 67SS number matching Camaro. First year for the 350. Had coke bottle hub caps and one traction bar on the RH side.

    The X took a nice 4th gen with a 6spd in the split. That was a fun car.

    I managed to keep two late 2nd gen Zs. One complete, one roller. I bought them for CHEAP! They are inside a sea can.

    And I have an 02 Z 35 Anniversary with 49K on the clock.

    So, one would say, I like Camaros.

    My old as in sold 80 Z with IROC flairs, spoiler, and glass L88 hood. B&M blower, stock 350 with an RV cam and headers. AC worked of course. I beat up on a LOT of 5.0 Mustangs!!! BTW at idle it sounded stock..

    Mine is a 96. I would give my left nad for a 67-69, Hell I'd give both lol. I'm just tired of working on this one. Too many things wrong with it and not worth any money. Technically, it is worth salvage price honestly.

    What I have been doing is more like 14 days worth.

    I started 14 days ago with a 2 server stacks, 2 dells, one netapp, a cisco switch and a UPS per stack. Went from a broke netapp with all my VMs on to a fully functioning network with a domain controller, exchange, sharepoint and 3 MSSQL databases. I have 15 clients reimagined for the neywork, logged into the DC.

    My biggest hurdle was getting a layer 3 switch configured to release services to the network. I sat down with packet tracer for about 3 hours and got it working there. Translated that info to the real deal and bam, signal flow to the clients.

    I still have about 20 passwords to change, need to get exchange and sharepoint working and create domain users for the network. once that's done I have to finish out with the army side. Can't really talk about that stuff. I do have the most important part working and providing services. As for that piece instill have to find the "rolls" I need for the clients. My domain users will be based on the "rolls" of this software. It will help me keep it simple. My goal is to avoid from using real people info for the Domain user account.

    A good pair of taillights are hard to find. All they make now are aftermarket. It would make a starting bed for a race car.

    The 67 went along with the divorce. I wish I could have kept it. It was all I could do to keep the 911 and my boat.

    Reinstalling the OS on my computer. Too many files on the network vs local, not knowing where they are located and so on. So now, everything locally, and only backups on the network server.

    Sounds like a good idea considering some of the issues you've mentioned. ..

    Of course, then you don't have any excuses after that... lol

    Yea, it was fine until I started playing around with programs that relied on fast data transfer that my network can't support. Well, actually it wasn't even my network because it was never saturated. I think it was a packet issue. They can travel much faster through a mobo vs over the network. So now, I'm installing everything on my SSD. And eventually, I will build a new computer with PCIe4 lol. Some day....

    Nice to see your past that phase. I went through that phase about 15 years ago on XP. I thought it cool to have to hard drives and ok mly keep the main os on one and all the program files and Jone directories on another. Royal pain in the back side.

    It's fine for normal stuff like keeping doc's and pictures and so on that you like to watch or view on demand. A gigabit network is fine for that. But, when a program is requesting instant and immediate files, the packets just don't move fast enough.

    Working on another solution for all of this now.
