I haven't been able to post much, but I have been reading and following the thread whenever I have the chance. I was wondering, am I the only one who reads this thread backwards to catch up on new posts?

Anyhow, I've been busy updating my servers in the datacenter where I work. It had been four years since my last visit, and I needed to replace a failed hard drive with new SSD drives, as well as update some old cPanel VMs.

All was going well until I forgot the admin password - un-fucking-believable! Panic set in as I never forget passwords or at least have them securely stored somewhere. This hypervisor contained 12 important VMs and our Primary DNS, and after an hour of trying every possible password, websites and webapps started dropping! I knew I knew the password, as I remembered rebooting it a few years back (it had over 1000 days of uptime). It was late, and the stress and pressure were really getting to me - I'm not usually like this, I work well under pressure. In fact, back in high school, I used to complete my assignments the night before and still do better than 95% of the class. Eventually, I managed to crack into the box, change the admin password and booted everything back up. Just the thought of what would have happened, caused this sinking feeling I wouldn't want to have again!

I think I'll pull the plug with working at the next ATH (whenever that may be). While I've always thought that I don't need to work, but rather want to work, the truth is that many people rely on me to show up, causing me to need to work! However, it has all started to really get to me.

As you may know, I work in IT, and the ever-changing landscape is starting to affect me negatively. I used to enjoy it, but now, even small things are starting to bother me - dropping support for "screen"? What the fuck? My muscle memory for ctrl-a-d is ingrained in my fingers! Now they want me to use tmux? That stuff is dreadful - or am I just getting too old for this shit?

CentOS has stopped development of CentOS 8 in favour of CentOS stream, and I'm not sure why. I couldn't be bothered with digesting the information to work out the advantages, etc. How does this affect me? cPanel will drop support for CentOS 7 in June 2024, and I think they've already dropped support for CentOS 8, and will not support any Stream variants. Anyhow, they're pushing for a paid version of CloudLinux, which I was very tempted to use to replace the current setup as I thought there weren't many options.

I was wrong - AlmaLinux and RockyLinux are excellent alternatives. The younger me would have realized this years ago! What I'm noticing is that I'm not doing my due diligence or researching. Has the landscape gotten so big? Am I just getting too tired to learn more, or am I holding onto the past? Or has YouTube Shorts and Instagram rewired my brain to have the attention span of a 10-year-old?


TL;DR - CentOS is now AlmaLinux

I know where your coming from.
Having worked in IT for a number of years the appetite for learning yet another distro or windows install wanes.
Eventually you get to the stage of not giving a cr@p and thats when I got out.
Too many people rely on your skillset to not care so it was time to change my job.
To be fair the size and scope of IT these days is so vast that you need many specialists.
I now enjoy my retirement with more sedate things but still tinker with computers on things that interest me.
Also remember that if you were to drop dead today your position at work would probably be filled within a week.
Life is too short to not enjoy it.

The last few months have taken its toll, both mentally and physically. I feel the under appreciation and the demands from some clients/customers to have things finalized in an unrealistic time frame hasn’t helped!

My dilemma is that I own the business and while some clients are a pain, I still consider them almost family. Some have been with me for almost 20 years, the thought of just dumping them and running, doesn’t sit well.

If I was an employee, I probably would have been relaxing on the beach with @El duderino_, posting “Where Am I?” clues.

But starting to come to terms with the idea of letting it all go! Maybe it’s time to start planning an exit strategy.

I am happy you got out and are enjoying retirement. You are right, life is way too short!


Well you will have to leave it at some point whether willingly or otherwise!
Might as well be willingly.

@thepowerfulHRV
The major BTC bear markets. All time high, to bottom, back to the all time high.

Current bear market shown in black.

I bet this recovery will be closer to 2013 bull run (blue line) for a number of reasons:
1. Price was artificially low due to fake FTX  paper buying.
2. Regulatory clampdown will keep money out of fakebitcoin scams and into $BTC.
3. Inflation is high, and will probably stay high.
4. We are entering a period of rapid loss in trust of fiat currency, banks, and government debt.

...I understand that there is also an automated bank security system that stops some payments (and I noted this right away, this is their control over my money)...

It's not your money if it's in a bank. It's the banks money until they pay you back.

If we start to go into philosophy, then after the rejection of coins made of precious metals, I have no fiat money left under control at all, because just like the bank controls my deposit, the issuer controls the entire amount of money issued by him. Let's say the bank returns my deposit, but the issuer can immediately announce that this type of banknote is no longer valid. So that's how the whole fiat system works. And we know a decentralized alternative to it.

...

and no known price for easter 2010. close we have is bitcoin pizza day for a spring 2010 price I think.

may 22 , 2010

10,000 coins for 1 pizza.

I could get a pizza for 10 dollars in 2011 so 1/10 of a cent would be the may 22, 2010 price.


...

The deal was for two pizzas, so that's roughly 20 dollars.

I'll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day.

...

However, lazlo could have got $41USD for them if he had sold them on the bitcoinmarket exchange on May 18, 2010.

10,000... Thats quite a bit.. you could sell those on https://www.bitcoinmarket.com/ for $41USD right now..
good luck on getting your free pizza.


BitcoinFX says there were private trades of bitcoins to goods before the pizzas. The pizzas were just the first public goods trade.

...

Bitcoins early history on the wiki is truly very patchy TBH, because those wiki pages were created mainly by people after the events. The first trades for goods and/or services were not the now infamous Pizzas! I remember buying US postage stamps from NewLibertyStandard before Laszlo posted the Pizza trade. I suspect that other trades also took place before that time, they were just not made publicly.

...

NewLibertyStandard was selling physical stuff for bitcoins through a shop on his website on Feb 09 2010.

I was court ordered to AA years ago and went up there and called them all a bunch of weak willed pussies and was told I was a disrupting influence and they signed off on my court mandated meetings.

*I was pissed right off the bat when I read the steps and one of them was to accept jesus as my lord and savior and told them there is no way I was going to do that.

we use higher power in GA and the higher power can be anything but yourself.  Ie just admit you are not all powerful.

Well, Satoshi knew what he was doing. But, His enemies (Government, Bank, Elites) didn't understand what he was doing.
They were scared of losing their power over the old financial system. But those enemies didn't know how to defend Bitcoin.

People still don't understand why Bank Officials, Government officials sometimes say weird things about Bitcoin.
Because they are scared of Bitcoin, all their actions failed before and will fail in the future. Bitcoin was one of the bloodless revolutions which gave you the power to handle your money without a 3rd party.

This is the exception of Bitcoin. "You know what you are doing. But your enemy doesn't."
