Its called “fractured bone spur tip of olecranon“. It means I’ve got a broken bone in my elbow area. My arm is in a sling and immobilized. Got it while sparring at a karate tournament. Landed hard on my elbow due to a slippery floor. Of course its my right arm, the one I write … Read moreYou think I would learn already
Long ago I pondered Building a business and a pipeline is not the same as building a technology. Transitioning from a cool project to a successful product is far far more than meeting specific technological milestones. Projects, inherently, are un-finished entities. There are missing things.

The NICs would throw various driver exceptions, and kernel panic the machines. It was doing this to our … Read moreFailing 10GbE NICs
Config now comes from some nice and simple json, and it handles multiple machines with aplomb. See the git repository for the latest. The config file example is in there, and you can replicate the n01-ipmi section with more nodes trivially. Coming next is getting config from a trusted web server, along with registering the … Read moreUpdate on IPMI Console Logger
