The headline might be a little misleading, but trying to install the Apple OS Sierra Beta led to a series of events that seems to have rendered my MBP inoperable for the moment.
It seems that a number of our fluorescent bulbs went out all at once. In our house, this means 10 or more at once; four or five fixtures with two or four tubes. We had some left in the last bulk puirchase we made, but fell short of filling all of the fixtures with new bulbs.

Five hours of overnight effort and a few more after a little nap, and it seems like the only thing not working is send-mail auth (no one can auth, so no one can send mail). Still working. More to come.
I've been playing with a few load-balancing, caching, and high-availability servers to sit in front of my web servers. This is in part to allow me a little flexibility in my configuration, as well as to give me some protection from hackers, and just some experience with some of the myriad options out there.
