My MariaDB Cluster, Finally

I usually do not struggle getting something to work on a server.  I wanted to get a MariaDB 10.1 cluster going for development purposes and to learn more about clusters.  I started following documentation on CentOs7 for about 2 weeks and then gave up.  Then I switched to Ubuntu and struggled for another two weeks.  then this morning I got my three node cluster working.

I basically took parts of my CentOs 7 knowledge and combined it with the Ubuntu knowledge.  Getting the first node up on Ubuntu was easy, I never got it working on CentOs 7.  Getting the other two nodes to join the cluster was hard.  Today I decided to copy the main cluster config to the other nodes and started MariaDB and they joined.

Now I can move on and start my Udemy classes

BTW, I have been working on this project instead of drawing in the morning and evening before and after work.

Home Projects for January 2017

This month I was able to get back to working on my house.  It was very frustrating to be physically limited to working on my house due to my bicycling injury.  I am glad that I am getting back to normal.

January 15 - Making the attic safe to work. I started working on making the platform in the attic above the hall safer to walk on.  I have been working in the area as it is adjacent to the master bathroom.  The existing plywood was un even and not completed supported.  I also had to temporarily remove some of the plywood decking to expose the area where I was installing the new data center and access point.
Garage Attic Platform I have been climbing up these attic ladder stairs for a long time.  I decided to add some plywood at the top where I step every time I go up or down.  the addition of the plywood makes it safer.

Mediacom Status for 2017 Month 01

Last year in October we switched our Internet plan to a higher download limit.  I tried to get ! terabyte of download in October and November, but missed the mark.  This month I went over by 25GB.  I will try each month to get as close to my limit without going over.

SE Linux baby steps

Maybe not a big deal for most, but I figured out what was wrong with my uplod issues.  I had to configure my directories that needed to have files uploaded to them for read write in the SE Linux context.  Here is the command I ran on my Word Press content directories.
chcon -R -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t /var/www/html/wordpress-multi/wp-content/uploads/  Now I can upload pictures to my test site.

Nightmares on Wax - Argha Noah

One of my favorite "Chill" tracks.  I discovered this a few years back while listening to SomaFM Groove Salad.  I have since changed from listening to SomaFM and Pandora to Spotify.  I have had Nightmares on Wax in my playlist for a while, but never this track.  Today I decided to search for it and I added it to My Chill playlist..

I like music with a "intelligent" rap in it.  sometimes it can be 1960's space program communication, or transcendental teachings.  This track has a historical passage which defines the real meaning of a Biblical story, the Waters of Chaos celebration in ancient Egypt.  Take a listen.
