With my new job title of Linux System Administrator (more correctly “Administrateur Systèmes Linux“), there are some new things I have had to learn. One is the wonderful world of Ansible.

However, there is one thing that plagued me, rebooting the system and having it wait to run the next command. This is important for patching up a server then making sure everything came back up alright.

After scouring the web and trying out every post I found. I found a post that I was able to piece together other’s response to get a valid, working, solution.

Over the past many years, I have brought up one of my favorite artists, who also happens to be local to my Home Town. I am of course talking about Danielle Allard, who is preparing for her 3rd CD release, which I am sure will be as successful, if not more than her previous releases. Looking forward to the Release Party.

The Next Chapter is about to begin…

If you asked me 5 years ago what my 5 Year plan was… I would never have guessed I would have gotten this far.

I moved to Quebec on January 1st, 2012, with the hope of starting anew. After 32+ years living in Ontario, I took the bold leap to leave my Province and start a new exciting chapter in my life. But it doesn’t start there. It all started in 1999 when my best friend Eric handed me my first copy of Linux… Corel Linux. It was at this point, just before I started College, that I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a Linux Admin, the guy who sits in the back room, making sure everything is working as it should.

So let’s get this out of the way. I am pissed. Now I do take part of the blame. There are some things I could have and should have done differently, however, even so, it does not change what happened.

The Death of Clef – The Best WordPress Authentication Plugin
Mar201710

It’s a sad day. Well, it was a few days ago when I found out that the best WordPress Authentication Plugin (IMHO), Clef, was calling it quits.

I received an email from Jesse Pollak over at Clef:

I’m writing to inform you that starting today, we’ll be sunsetting the Clef product with a final shutdown date of 6/6 (official blog post here). Everything will remain fully functional and maintained until that date, at which point the mobile apps will cease functioning and be removed from the Google Play and Apple App stores.

5 years on the Island
Jan201702

Although technically it is the 2nd of January, as I just got off work a mear 2 hours ago, it still feels like the 1st to me. That being said, the 1st of January 2017 marks the 5th anniversary of the day I took the biggest risk of my life thus far.

5 years ago, I made the decision to change my life, to start a new, to throw away all the saftey nets, and take a leap of faith. 5 years ago today (yesterday for all of you date and time freaks) marks 5 years from the day I decided to leave behind my life in Ontario, and move to Quebec.
