Instead of the windshield that is.
I found out last night that three of my servers on my home connection were compromised.
So I was up until 12:30 a.m. making the two remaining machines do the stuff that the other ones had been doing. The compromised machines are now off the network and will be reloaded this week with fresh copies of different operating systems and will be re-purposed from what they were doing. Little to no outside contact for those machines.
I wish people would just leave other people alone. It causes so much crap in the world today. We keep forgetting that everything and everyone is connected.
In other news it’s warm enough to ride my bike today but since I’ve had so little sleep I can’t even consider it. I’m sure I’d put the bike down and I don’t want to do that if I can avoid it.
Going to try and get some sleep early tonight so I can be up and running early tomorrow. I need to work hard all day tomorrow to get things under control at that house. Things inside and some of my stuff in the garage. Bringing home a couple of boxes today that I can pack things in to go on E-Bay. (Yet another process that I have to get pushed into motion. Some of that stuff is worth real money but obviously doesn’t do me any good sitting there.)

Crap. Found out that my dad lost his job today. That sucks because he was making good money there too. Looks like they were “playing” him and didn’t intend to keep him past this quarter. He’ll find something I’m sure find something but it’s always tough. And at his age it’s even harder because of the way people treat him during interviews. He might have to color his hair just to find a good position somewhere. That would suck because he’s just started to become more of who is at the core of his being. I can see it shine through and it’s pretty damn great. I hate seeing things that tarnish other people’s shine. :-(
Still looking for something independent myself. Thinking about lots of things. For instance I’m thinking about buying a piece of property downstate that I would let some friends of ours move into and maintain so that my family would have some place to go if it all broke down. That would be nice to have available to me in the background.
Still I wish and hope that I can do more to help. And not just help my father - other people too....
