Finding the proper profile solution

Finding the proper profile solution

When working in a Windows and Citrix environment, things can get a little complicated. It’s not super complicated, but just enough when a simple setting change makes all the difference in when a profile is copied locally or to a remote location. Allow me to explain using my history of profiles. Up until virtual desktops were deployed at work, all profiles were local. Anyone who logged onto another machine, had no files, and no appdata. This was perfectly fine since…

5 things I would like to see improved in XenCenter/XenServer

5 things I would like to see improved in XenCenter/XenServer

I have been working with XenServer for about three years now, and I came into the game around 5.5, 5.6, and struggled through the 6.0 conversion. I have been running 6.2 for close to a year now, and It is pretty dang good. We don’t have memory leaks, random vm hangs, and it is just all around better. I only expect XenServer to become better and better. In saying so, I hope that they improve some features that are already…

Yesterday, August 27th, 2014, The SandyNet team rolled out to our new subdivision, Snowberry, to hook up the first fiber to the home customer.

Joseph Kemp was our first customer to obtain SandyNet Fiber to his home.    Upon arriving, we pulled open one of our vaults….

My time at SandyNet and a brief history of SandyNet Fiber

My time at SandyNet and a brief history of SandyNet Fiber

Note: This post was was written at 2am, and probably contains many spelling and grammar errors. I have been with the SandyNet team for over five years now, and even when I went off to college, I was asked to work remotely and take calls after hours. It has been an awesome experience, and I am very lucky to still continue to learn and expand my knowledge by working with this company. SandyNet has changed a lot over the past…

Powered Parachute Training

Powered Parachute Training

This last weekend, 7/26/14 I have the opportunity to get some training on how to operate and fly paraplanes. An awesome experience taught by Mark Martin. This post is just a footnote, instead of a lengthy post about what I did. I have a video and few pictures of my experience. My father and I are setup, and planning on obtaining our sports pilot licenses. With that, we will be able to fly a passenger when operating a two person…

Getac F110 Imaging

Getac F110 Imaging

Recently at work, we obtained 21 new tablets to replace the current CF-29 Toughbooks that were in production. It is currently my job to set up the Getac F110’s. The process has been… Painful. While I was finally able to finally get a Getac to image, I was unable to get it to image through the docking station NIC. Instead I found myself buying a USB to Ethernet adapter. While I am sure there is a proper way to image…

Certified for Tower Climbing and Rescue

Certified for Tower Climbing and Rescue

I have been busy with School. And Work. And other things. But, I recently took two days off from school (bad idea) and went to a training session in Clackamas by Gravitec for getting certified to climb towers. Attending with Legacy Wireless, I spent two full days learning to do’s and don’ts. What type of safety equipment is needed, and how to use it. Both in the classroom and out on a small tower, we practiced rescue and climbing techniques…

Doge App

Doge App

When I have free time, I have been slowly working on an Android live wallpaper. While it is very broken and worthless right now, I plan to eventually have it do something. Right now, it generates random doges and they scroll up the screen. It is still very much a work in progress, but plan to see it on Google Play someday. I hope.

Bancakes

Bancakes

My web server has been operational for about a year now and I never really got around to cleaning out the CSF firewall banned IP’s. It’s not usually a big deal, but I wanted to see when I removed them, if the site would speed up. So I deleted about 450 IP’s from the deny field in hopes that maybe things will run a little better. Here is long, long list of IP’s that were denied. 114.242.87.141 # BFM IP…

Off to college

Off to college

Well after spending a year at community college, I can say that I was very bored. I took only classes I needed, and none that I wanted. I am hoping that, that will change at OSU. I have been living in a house off campus for almost a week now, and been to all of my classes at least once. While I was forced to take CS160, it is at least something, and I hope to get more involved with…
