Stars Game @ AAC

For the first time in two years we got a chance to take the train into Dallas and catch a Stars game!!! But we lost in pretty spectacular fashion 4 to 1. Oh well, they keep this up and seats will be a lot cheaper than $50 apiece:)

Fedora 33 > 34 Update Complete

The computer updates have started. The new goal is going to move the current physical instance of my Linux server into a VirtualBox VM that will host everything until I can bring up RHEL on the new server hard drives and have it pick up things like web hosting and email.
