So the server I had everything hosted on took a shit and died on me. I’m not sure the exact reason. I figured having raid-5 would keep such things from happening but I think the controller card died. About a week before this my entire backup system died and so I lost all my backups. Then my actual server died that held my secondary backups.
Either way I haven’t spent enough time at the data center troubleshooting the issue to recover the data. I sort of need it, kinda. One of these days I’ll have to take the computer home and work on it. We’re replacing everything with VMs and they work just fine, we got hypervisors with 48 procs and 128gigs of ram, 4 vcpu’s and 4gigs of ram missing hardly go noticed. The new server is a VM and hopefully I’ll get a backup system working before things happen again.
I ended up with two new two terabyte drives and discarded the rest of them. Next is a SSD drive for the OS. Then fuck computers, I need more outfits.
Until then.. new stuff will be posted here. The next thing might be related to DNSSEC and how annoying it is and how there are no good tutorials on going in manually and so I’ll have to write down how rollovers work in a quick step by step guide.
