  • Learning.png.1234ff9e4d9cc021216dc3c7ed4662c2.pngWelcome to theZAh!

    We have so many passions on a wide range of different things that we have a website to cover all these different areas.  Here you won't find us requiring you to pay out money for information since this is a community website for all of us to enjoy, grow and research.

    What does theZAh Offer?

    We are a community driven site that gets bigger and stronger with more comments and input from the community. Every question and answer may help others looking for something similar. Only rule, treat others as you would like to be treated.

    Learning from others helps us grow together is what theZAh is all about.  Knowledge waste management system is another useful term meaning you have all this knowledge but may forget or unable to retrieve this knowledge when you need it. Sure you'll find it eventually on the internet if you search hard enough but hopefully you'll share and find information here at theZAh.

    We don't make any money but gladly take donations for hosting fee's, website software subscription fee's, beer fund, etc. So if you find something helpful or useful on the site or just want to contribute I appreciate any donation you are willing to share.  You can pick how your donation is spent.

    Categories we are covering at the moment on the site include


    We have years and years of a wide range of technical knowledge that we want to share with you.hosangit_logo.pngThe Tech Side of MyWiseGuys is also referred to as hosang I.T. which focuses on the technology aspects of the site to include website info, F5 LTM, F5 GTM, F5 Viprion, Infoblox and QIP discussions for the DDI world, Networking with the different Cisco technologies and the list goes on and on. We find technology fascinating and it’s always developing and building into something new and different for instance cloud technology like AWS, Azure, Google. We would love to discuss any of these topics with you in our forums.

    Our top DJ has knowledge in the music industry that he wants to share with you for free, no cost to you.

    For anything MUSIC we rely on DJ.  Music whether using Video, Karaoke or providing high quality digital entertainment through a leader of music delivery, you and your event dj.jpegis the number one focus. So many others use what they can get away with for equipment and you can tell when you hear popping noise from bargain cables or you walk away from an event and your ears are ringing like crazy and thats because the speakers are amplifying noise or using a windows laptop that crashes. In 11 years, never happened at a DJ event.



    Our Holy Church is a non-denominational church that focuses on believing is the most important item to focus on, not politics.ohc-01-150x150.jpeg

    Our Reverend grew up catholic and found that he is not a fan of politics that typically follow different faiths so became non-denominational but agrees there is no wrong religion if it helps you maintain your faith

    This is pretty much what it sounds like.  If it takes fuel then you may find interest in this group where we hit Offroad, Street, Water and whatever else.gclogo.png

      First I want to mention I installed Linux Mint 19 on a Mac running Catalina (10.15.5) using Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac Pro Edition and it would not update no matter what we did.  Aptitude repositories would not install no matter what.  After messing with all the suggestions from multiple forums I gave up and went to reliable Ubuntu (the god father of Linux.. lol).  It is always reliable and works no matter if I install it on a laptop, virtual machine or a server.  Reason I don't like Ubuntu is the bloatware..  just seems slower than other distro's but when it always works you wonder why you ever tried anything else.
      When installing Ubuntu 20.04 on the Mac make sure you configure options and ensure Hypervisor is checked under the CPU section or Ubuntu install will just hang with a spinning Ubuntu circle of death but after you wait for everything to get done, it also fails with a Parallels Tools install because Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac does not support Ubuntu 20 and the newest version of Ubuntu it supports at the time of this article is 19.10 so going to try #3 which is download Ubuntu Desktop 19.10 from the archive and try to install that.
      Just as a note, I am seriously considering installing the Arch Linux madjaro which looks totally awesome and I have only read great things about it but to be honest I haven't worked with pac as the software update/installer.  I'm familiar with aptitude for Debian systems and yum installer for Redhat systems but pac would be all new to me so let me get Ubuntu working first then play with something new.

      Here we go..  last week was a rough one with Kate running a fever of 103.8 after her port placement.  Then the horror of going through the Emergency Room at Harper Hutzel to then get admitted to the desired Karmanos.  It was a rough week but what they did worked since Kate had a good weekend as well as Monday and Tuesday.  Now we have two appointments (so far) for Wednesday and Thursday with Wednesday being the big day with Lab work, Dr consultation with Dr. Yang, chemo and then Lumbar Puncture.

      ffmpeg has been around for a long long long time and its still the tool many choose when wanting to convert video and/or audio especially since its free.  Many of the pretty GUI applications that are out there use ffmpeg in the background but you typically will find yourself paying for the simplicity of using a GUI versus command line.
      Here are some instructions on for the command line
      How to reduce the file size of MPEG-4 multimedia format video with ffmpeg
      Before we begin let's first get some statistics about our sample mp4 video file video1-orig.mp4
      $ ffmpeg -i video1-orig.mp4 ... 17015 kb/s, 29.99 fps, 30 tbr, 90k tbn, 180k tbc (default) ...  
      Identify the current file, which in this case the size is 22MB:
      $ ls -hl video1-orig.mp4  -rw-rw-r--. 1 user1 user1 22M Jul 23 10:56 video1-orig.mp4  
      The current bitrate of our mp4 video file is 17015 kb/s based on the first command you ran above (using the -i when you were looking for information about the file). The following linux command will reduce the bit rate of the above MP4 video file by approximately half and save the output as video1-new.mp4:
      $ ffmpeg -i video1-orig.mp4 -b 8507k video1-new.mp4  
      The new size of our mp4 file is:
      $ ls -hl video1-new.mp4  -rw-rw-r--. 1 user1 user1 12M Jul 23 11:14 video1-new.mp4

      This week isn't about the chemo but more about a big Tuesday appointment where Kate will move
      from a PICC line

      to a PORT

      as well as get an Bone Marrow Biopsy / MRD Test.
      What is an MRD Test?
      Measurable or minimal residual disease (MRD) testing is used to see if the cancer treatment is working and to guide further treatment plans. MRD testing is mainly used in blood cancers (leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma), but is being studied in other cancers. It is a type of personalized medicine, because the results can be used to tailor your treatment plan.
      What can the MRD test find?
      This test can find even the smallest amount of cancer cells that may be remaining after treatment. This can:
      Show how well your cancer has responded to the treatment you received. Do a better job of finding out if you are in remission than other tests. Find a cancer recurrence sooner than other tests. MRD tests use highly sensitive methods, including multi-parametric flow cytometry and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). These methods look for any remaining cancer cells that cannot be seen in routine tests. This test can detect even 1 cancer cell among 1 million normal cells.
      MRD testing is also useful in clinical trials for new medicines. MRD can show how well the medicine is working at treating the cancer without having to wait months to see if the cancer returns.
      MRD and ALL
      Part of routine testing in the treatment of pediatric and most adult ALL. Can detect relapse earlier than other tests. This allows for earlier treatment if relapse is suspected. Studies show that MRD is the best way to predict what treatments will be most helpful after the induction phase ALL treatment. MRD can also help identify patients most at risk for ALL relapse. These patients may have the best chance for a cure with a bone marrow transplant. Patients with good MRD response may be able to avoid transplant.

      This is our 2nd week of Chemo Treatment 3 times a week.  This "should be" also our last 3 times a week treatment which Kate is excited about.
