Android Music app showing No Folders

The last few days I was unable to listen to my music during my morning runs because the built-in in “Music” app on my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android phone wasn’t showing any of my music, or folders of music available. I didn’t get to spend a lot of time initially because around the same time I broke my screen and had to get it replaced. Once I could finally spend some time seriously troubleshooting, it turns out I had downloaded a .ogg file. I’m not sure exactly how it caused this issue, but where clearing cache and data in the Music app, Media Storage, etc, all of my folders and music magically showed up again after I removed the offending .ogg file.

Windows computers and Adak time & timezones

A few weeks ago, I ran into an issue where computers in Adak were completely wrong after Daylight Savings. Adak is 1 hour behind the rest of Alaska (per Wikipedia, and the client), but was now 2 hours behind.

Nagios check_esxi_hardware CRITICAL: Execution time too long!

Today I ran into a Nagios check that had shown status “UNKNOWN” with output “CRITICAL: Execution time too long!” for the check_esxi_hardware check. The server and ESXi system all seemed to be functioning just fine, and no updates had been applied between it working and the new “UNKNOWN” status.
