I am still in shock that the Chicago Cubs won the World Series in Baseball which ended their 108 year drought. Last time the Cubs won the world series, they won it back-to-back. I can expect nothing less this time around. ?
I began my Linux hobby in 1999. I was given a CD of RedHat Linux which I installed on an old computer. At first use, it was slow and buggy and uninstalled in favor of Windows 98. I installed Debian a few months later and discovered I could install a different desktop environment – KDE […]
One of my hobbies is video gaming. In my teen years, I would spend on average of 60-80 hours a week playing either Counter Strike, Team Fortress 2, or any other Valve software title. It was not until I went to college and got a job when my average went to 30-40 hours a week. […]
I am a SysAdmin who likes to code. I would say I know a fair amount of web developing, but do not understand it like a web developer uunderstands it. I think the reverse is true as well – web developers know how to set up a LAMP/LAMP stack, but they do not understand it […]
I see a trend in system administration tasks moving toward the Ruby programming language. Yes, you can still code in Perl, Python, Shell, etc., but Ruby seems to be growing in popularity as a choice in scripting language. It should be – it is certainly easier to type and it has a big community to […]

I messed up on the post this week. It had a previous date when I clicked submit. I wrote an article on the next generation web stack (LEMP) with SSL.
The greatest story ever told is how an Almighty God came down to earth, lived a perfect life, and offered Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world (past, present, and future). This is what the Easter weekend represents. There is a penalty for sin which must be paid. Jesus paid that […]
Sunday is so awesome that cron repeats it! (0,7)
In a fictitious world where I started my own company and developed a LEMP-stack chat application, this is how I would do it in 2016: I would use WebSockets as the protocol in which data is being sent to and from the server. WebSockets has built-in support by nginx (since version 1.3). For caching, I […]
When a dnf or yum process gets interrupted, you may get the below error: Running transaction check Transaction check succeeded. Running transaction test The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction. You can remove cached packages by executing ‘dnf clean packages’. Error: Transaction check error: file /usr/share/doc/avahi-libs/README from install of avahi-libs-0.6.32-0.4.rc.fc23.i686 […]
As an IT worker, I have to re-learn my position every 3 years. This is due to the fact that Microsoft releases a new version (of their Server software, Exchange, office suite, etc.), or there has been a technology shift from one Linux specialty to another. To combat this change and to stay ahead of […]
Most Christians read the Bible every day. Bible reading schedules are either in paper form only or there is a charge in obtaining the digital copy of one. Such was the case for my wife. She liked the McCheyne reading schedule which takes you through the new testament twice and the old once. A digital […]
For those who read my blog, I want to wish a Merry Christmas. It always gives me great joy to remember the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. Not only does Jesus’ life impact so many, but it was his death that payed the price of my sin. I am one of those who believe that […]
We live in the year 2016 – anyone who does not know how to use basic computer functionality (such as email, using a word processor, decyphering between a spreadsheet and database, etc.) should not be allowed to hold public office. Why? Here is my main reason:
