I had a bit of time, so I created a video on how to enable 2FA on a Windows-based system.  I know, I know, I am a Linux admin, what on earth am I doing talking about Windows?  To be honest, and my fellow Linux Sysadmins will be will give me flack for this, Windows is still a very prevalent platform.  Yes, Linux is better in my opinion (server wise), but there is a place and time for Windows Servers. I am also a trained Windows Server Admin, taking WIndow Nt4 and Windows 2000 back at Algonquin College back in Ontario, and taking the Preparation for Windows Server Administration Certification for WIndows 2012 at Dawson College just a few years back… so although I am a Linux Sysadmin by title at Ubisoft, in reality, I am a Lin./Win. SysAdmin. 😛

It’s been a while since I have posted here, and that not really abnormal.  Life just got… busy I guess.  But now it’s even more hectic.  On June 28th I was diagnosed as a diabetic.  I was given a choice… continue on my path and eventually have to use injections, or, lose 150lbs and hopefully reverse the effects.

I chose the latter, and to help me along and document my progress, I have started a new blog:

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.
