  2. First I have to apologize for the lack of updates I have not been providing for any of your following this. So much is going on in our world that unfortunately the blog is one of the first things that gets lost. So within the last month Kate got a Bone Marrow Biopsy at the beginning of May and just last Wednesday she got the very painful Lumbar Puncture. She has had the Lumbar Punctures before but it didn't whoop her ass like it did this time. She was throw up sick and fevers for about three days but she is doing better now. We have been pretty firm on the not doing the COVID vacc
  3. Kelsey has been one of Kates best friends since she was very young. Kelsey has started a fund raiser which you can see below. Her website is https://KelseyCrafts.com to order and get more information.
  4. Here are the factory settings from a default CentOS 7 box default_profile_centos7.txt
  5. Turns out the dnf has changed the way it deals with proxies. If you’re using a basic proxy authentication then you need to specify it: vi /etc/dnf/dnf.conf # proxy settings proxy=http://proxy.domain.com:3128/ proxy_username=username proxy_password=password proxy_auth_method=basic
  6. We tried so many mattresses. Donating our old mattress that isn't worn out to someone who needs it. Donation Centers: (Salvation Army) - www.satruck.org (Goodwill) - http://www.goodwill.org/ (Donation Town) - http://www.donationtown.org/donation-pick-up.html (Habitat for Humanity) - http://www.habitat.org/restores (Bye Bye Mattress Recycling) - www.byebyemattress.com
  7. This has been a straight up nightmare. My CentOS 7 server has been updating just fine via yum through our proxy and all of a sudden it stopped working. This blog is some troubleshooting I've done to try and figure out the issue. FIRST, validate your repos are correct. This is what I have on my server /etc/yum.repos.d/ -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 191 Sep 15 2015 endpoint.repo -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 152 May 22 2018 Tuleap.repo -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1062 Jun 19 2018 rpmfusion-free-updates-testing.repo -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1002 Jun 19 2018 rpmfusion-free-updates.repo
  8. So Kate received a phone call from her onacologist Dr. Yang mentioning that her Bone Marrow Biopsy and MRD test have come back negative so not finding any sign of cancer but he is still concerned why Kate's body isn't healing. Her platelets are not increasing as they should which is making it difficult to continue the necessary aggressive treatment keeping the cancer dead and gone. He has requested Kate talk to a bone marrow transplant representative to discuss options. Obviously this has Kate very scared and nervous since finding a bone marrow match is very very difficult since many pe

  10. On a mac instead of doing ifconfig you can run networksetup like below to show all your interfaces and the assigned Mac-Address dennis$ networksetup -listallhardwareports Hardware Port: Wi-Fi Device: en0 Ethernet Address: 78:4f:43:8d:54:d8 Hardware Port: Bluetooth PAN Device: en6 Ethernet Address: 78:4f:43:90:0b:f0 Hardware Port: Thunderbolt 1 Device: en1 Ethernet Address: 82:dc:af:e0:cc:01 Hardware Port: Thunderbolt 2 Device: en2 Ethernet Address: 82:dc:af:e0:cc:00 Hardware Port: Thunderbolt 3 Device: en3 Ethernet Address: 82:dc:af:e0:cc:05 Hardware Port: Thunderbolt 4 Device: en4 E
  11. Tried to capture packets for a NAT address ( is NAT Pool) for my VMWare Fusion session. When on my mac I ran the following command I'm getting some weird error messages. dennis$ sudo tcpdump -i any -v network tcpdump: data link type PKTAP tcpdump: listening on any, link-type PKTAP (Apple DLT_PKTAP), capture size 262144 bytes pktap_filter_packet: pcap_add_if_info(en9, 1) failed: pcap_if_info_set_add: pcap_compile_nopcap() failed pktap_filter_packet: pcap_add_if_info(bridge100, 1) failed: pcap_if_info_set_add: pcap_compile_nopcap() failed pktap_filter_packet: p
  12. I use a terminal program on my Mac called zoc by emtec and in comparison to all the other program terminals I have used, its by far the best all around program. With mac I have tried iTerm2 (garbage and very feature less), MacTerm, In your home directory (so I just type cd and press enter which bring me there) I type vi .bash_profile and my bash profile looks like the one below which gives me color. Its really about the PS1 command mainly. # .bash_profile if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then . ~/.bashrc fi # User specific environment and startup programs PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.local/bin:

  14. Okay today, having a bad day. Tried to do an yum update and it locked out my user account. dhosang@usdet1lvdwb001:$ sudo yum update -y Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, product-id, search-disabled-repos Determining fastest mirrors Could not get metalink https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-7&arch=x86_64&infra=stock&content=centos error was 14: curl#22 - "Invalid file descriptor" * base: mirror.dal.nexril.net * centos-sclo-rh: centos.mirrors.tds.net * centos-sclo-sclo: repos.lax.layerhost.com * epel: mirror.arizona.edu * extras: centos.mirrors.tds.net * remi
  15. Last night we decided to cancel Thanksgiving since Kate is not doing so good. Before Kate went to bed I raised the head of the bed up so it resembled a hospital bed. My thought is treat it like heartburn where if you don't elevate yourself you get the stomach acid getting in the back of your throat causing you to vomit. Through the night she got sick only once which is a huge improvement.
  16. Rescheduled post operation appointment for next Tuesday at 8:30am since Kate can't even really stand without getting or feeling awfully sick today. REST, WATER and CRACKERS is Kate's itinerary today (add some TV when her eyes are open to give her something to look at)
  17. Kate got some sleep last night. She has puked a bunch and feels sick to her stomach and we have to go to a post operation checkup today at 11am. Possible solutions: Drink clear or ice-cold drinks. Eat light, bland foods (such as saltine crackers or plain bread). Avoid fried, greasy, or sweet foods. Eat slowly and eat smaller, more frequent meals. Do not mix hot and cold foods. Drink beverages slowly.
  18. Fever is below 102... When she gets peg chemo drug it just really whoops her ass. I read something interesting... a fever will not hurt ya until it reaches 108 at which time it can cause brain damage. I was freaking out about 104 but that’s an acceptable fever. U want the fevers which will tell the brain to fight off any infection.... so they say. keeping a close eye on her. She thinks she is done puking
  19. Ok so her fever now is 104+ she is refusing a Luke warm bath. Since she puked the Tylenol I have her one (I can’t confirm she puked both). We came to middle ground of 10min. If it doesn’t show signs of going down in 10min then she has to take that almighty like warm bath.
  20. just checked its staying around 101.7 Gave her more water and trying to get her to stop shivering. Set a timer to check her temp again in 30min. I warned her, if her temp exceeds 102 it will be luke warm bath time.. which she hates but it does seem to work. Cold wash clothes don't seem to have the positive effect they use to at the beginning.
  21. Fever is up to 101.5, just gave her some Tylenol and she puked it back up.
  22. Kates running a fever (just below 101) but we know its expected reaction after chemo via her port.
  23. No A.L.L. treatments since Week 37 Bloodwork Results Potassium: Bilirubin(Liver Function): White Blood Cells (WBC 4.0-10.0): Hemoglobin (HGB 11.5-16.0): Platelets (PLT 150-500): 30 Transfusions Blood: NO Platelets: NO Procedures Lumbar Puncture: NO BoneMarrow Biopsy: NO Chemo Methotrexate via IV drip (avg __min infusion): NO Vincristine via IV drip (avg 5min infusion): YES Pegasparagus via drip (avg infusion): YES Cyclosphomine: NO Cytara
  24. Yea a long title for something pretty simple So what the heck is the Message Of The Day on CentOS? Well it gives the ability to provide information to users who log into your server. FIRST we have the banner which is defined in your sshd_config sudo vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config Browse or Find Banner and mine looks like this Banner /etc/login.warn So if you open up the banner (/etc/login.warn) it looks pretty straight forward and simple which you can customize that you like ************************************************************* ** NETWORK TEAM JU
  25. So it's been a few days (well almost a week now, wow time flies). Kate is doing really well given the situation. She has a serious bruise on her leg (yea it can gross out a few people). She is trying to walk around more without crutches but she gets the sharp shooting pains as the tendons and muscles find there home on her leg.
  26. Now just at patient discharge.
