Post 3490 - Thursday

You call that a storm?

We have been hearing for days about how there was a terrible storm coming. So far, pushing 11pm, we have had some freezing rain, and that's about it. A walk in the park.

I have spent most of the evening working on my next Frank true crime article, as well as a portion of the next media column. A productive evening. Two interviews. Another interview for the true crime piece on Saturday afternoon.  I have promised my editor that my draft of that true crime article will be on his desk when he gets to work on Monday morning. My home office is next to the laundry room, so I figure I can wash clothes while I'm working here, too.

I have had a terrible time with my Plex Media Server over the last day or so. It keeps telling me, and my clients, that certain shows are not available, that the "media wasn't present". That usually points to an unmounted hard drive, but that is not the case. I have split up the TV Shows library into three smaller libraries and am rebuilding the libraries and indexes now. My goodness, what a pain in the rump roast it can be to maintain this stuff. Why doesn't it just work?

I think the problems are related to the new version of Plex that was released and which I installed, several days ago. That is usually the way. You have an application that works just splendidly, and then they release a fancy update. You have to install it because otherwise they will make your current version, the one that works splendidly, stop working at all. So, you install the new version, and it frigs up your mojo. Happens every time.

Frigging computers, man. Hate 'em sometimes.

I think I will turn in. Likely have to drive in to work in the morning through that really heavy snow that hasn't fallen yet.

See you tomorrow.
