So before I go posting anything about what I want to accomplish during 2017 I should probably stop and look at what I set out to do in 2016. So last year
I posted my resolutions/goals for 2016. So for a quick recap the goals are the first bullets and the secondary bullets are how I felt I did.

So last year about this time we were able to switch our ISP from Time Warner Cable to a local company called Greenlight Networks . To me it wasn't about just getting rid of Time Warner Cable, but rather knowing that the Technology that I was buying was more robust than the Coax service that Time Warner would be providing.

So I saw a few other people posting their resolutions/goals for 2016, so I thought maybe I should. If it is public at least then someone can call me out on not finishing them.

So one of the things that we tried last year and did okay with was a garden, so this Spring we gave it another go. This Spring unfortunately was a bit cooler and wetter than it was last year, but I think all and all we are doing okay. Overall I like the little bit of a challenge as well as knowing that I grew something I am eating.

This year we planted a few different things, so here here is our list and what seems to be going well at this point. The first set are our new attempts;

So for the last few years we have been working on developing the monitoring of our network. When I was first hired I was asked to look into what we might use. We were using What's Up Gold, but it had aged and wasn't being kept up. We were also using MRTG, but not on all of our links. Of course all the usually suspects showed up in all of my Google searches:

  • Nagios
  • Zenoss
  • Cacti
  • Zabbix

Then there were two that I hadn't seen before.

So my Uncle Jay and Aunt Syl after hearing that I wanted to play banjo were kind enough to get me a sweet banjo for Christmas. So I told my Uncle that I would post some videos of me practicing as I got better. I happened to see them over Mother's day and was asked when would I be posting the videos. Well Uncle Jay and Aunt Syl feast your eyes on this Banjo magic!
