Government Stupidity in Action - I call Entergy to have them transfer the power at the new house from the previous owner to me on the closing date. I am informed that I need a power permit from the county.

So I call the county office. They need me to fill out and return an application, a copy of the home inspection, and a certificate from...wait for it....Waste Management.

Remember folks, this is for me to have the power stay connected at the house that has had power since it was built in 1995. Oh, and they want to send out an inspector because he didn't like the photos in my home inspection and that's gonna cost me at least $50.

I'm still not sure what Waste Management has to do with electricity other than every local government agency wanting to get fingers into my wallet. sigh And of course they'll win unless I don't feel like having power.

I may be planning to spend more time on this than I should.

New media server: Core i3 4130T, 8GB HyperX RAM, MSI Z87I AC motherboard, random 160GB spindle drive for the OS, 3x 3TB WD Red HDD in software RAID5 for the media.

All inside a Coolermaster Elite 130 case and running Arch linux. Next up, configuring the wireless AC board to be an access point so it can replace my old router.
