Anyone running one ?  Had two pcs running esxi with 32 gb memory and another pc running xpenology as the shared storage... also had a pc with  Windows 2019 server running veeam as the backup for all the vms..... now cut down to one host running vms with local ssd storage in an attempt to reduce electricity costs.. running a Cisco vWlc  with 7 Cisco access points about the house/garage to supply Wi-Fi to every corner of the house/garden.. all connected with HP switches with various vlans... works pretty well I have to say...
Album Reviews / Victor

Been enjoying Envy of None which I never thought i wqould judging by the early song  releases so thought I would give Victor another spin which I hadn't listedned to for ages and have say now enjoying this much more than I remember..

Was in Tower Records in London in 96 when I came across this.. the cover looked like Alex Lifeson but nothing on the CD to make a definite ID... just Victor..

Anyway a nice departure from Rush with this album.. quite dark themes, dark lyrics and guitar right in your face from the off... some wonderful solos in some of the tracks Shut Up Shuttin' Up, Strip and Go Naked.
Plenty of synthy stuff going on particularly with the title track and At The end  and big Al doing some talking/singing kinda stuff....

A wonderful melange of tracks on this album..its def. worth checking out
Looking for something to charge phone while out n about.. been checking Amazon and they seem to either not last long ,overheat or just stop working.. anyone using one or could recommend

A remark from jonners about the Rush debut..never owned it or listened to it in its entirety.. just wondering what bands/artists have debut albums that folks reckon are still worth it....????

Think the morons were out in force today

Dogs on stupidly long leads
Walkers taking the whole width of the path
Bloke reversing out of parking place and not noticing me
Woman stepping off pavement onto cycle path and not noticing me

My red/orange jacket must be some kind of invisibility cloak

Out on my route today  and started wondering what others' experiences were.. so for the most part i,m on designated cycle paths/routes so you encounter folks out for walks with dogs with kids etc folk coming towards can for the most part see you coming so tend to get out the way.. it's the folks that can't see you coming that pose the problem... so being the nice person I am will ring my bell many times in some instances to alert them. Some will get out the way others will stare at you like the devil incarnate.. what's ur fucking problem????.. others can't control their fucking dogs and look at you like you're in the wrong..others seem to completely over react like what the hell you doing on a bike on this path...

Anyone else with similar experiences?
