Dad Joke 

A few puns make me numb, but math puns make me number.

Dear Western Digital,

WTH is a "random" software update schedule?

@kev I’m still waiting for the nice weather to come my way. It’s getting warmer here (I’m in New York) but the roads are still dirty. I usually wait until a few heavy rainstorms clear the roads.

One of my goals for the is to self-host my code with a CI/CD stack, setup a pull through cache for Docker images, NPM packages, and Composer packages for my day to day development work.

I'm also planning on setting up an APT cache of Debian since all my servers, virtual machines, and my desktop run Debian.

Maybe someday I'll setup a Steam cache but I'll need to expand my storage significantly for that.

Finally setup my R210 II as a pfSense router/firewall currently behind my WRT1900ACS wireless router since I'm not ready to switch over yet.

There is so much to learn but I was pleasantly surprised by Linode API support for Dynamic DNS.

I am planning on building a small rack cabinet for the but right now it's sitting on a couple storage bins with wood laid underneath.

My lab also consistes of an old MacBook Pro (11,1) and MacBook Air (5,2) which I think will become strictly docker nodes. I run Debian 10 on all of these servers.

I'm still planning pretty heavily my long term goal but right now it's a NAS, Plex, and Nextcloud server for my family.

Update on my : I received the R210 II and R420 a couple weeks ago and have been fiddling with them ever since, mostly on the R420.

iDRAC Enterprise is a fantastic tool and I've been loving Proxmox. This R420 is primarily to replace my current NAS (WD EX2100) so I have ZFS setup with 4x 3TB drives in a RaidZ2.

This is my first time purchasing used HGST drives but all seems well. I do have multiple backups though. My old NAS is a secondary local backup and Backblaze as the offsite.

I've been on the command line a bit too long today. Just typed `ls -l` into DuckDuckGo 😆

@cooper Awesome! I would be very interested in your experience and actual speeds once you start using it.

I'm interested in getting one but don't need it now as I'm in a small town with 400Mbps. I do plan to move out to a more rural area eventually and Starlink looks like the only compelling option.

I believe a turning point for Bitcoin would be when we stop listing its value in USD and instead list the value of USD in Bitcoin. That subtle different defines its importance over other currency in my opinion.

My favorite thing to see when I have the same question...

Starting to convert my homelab into a rack! Bought a Dell R420 for a NAS with Plex and a Dell R210 ii for a pfSense box.

This is an upgrade to my current setup of a WD EX2100 NAS, and old MacBook Pro and Air (both running Debian), and a RaspberryPi 2.

Hey.

You are an amazing human.

I just thought you should know.

@kev "ä" would pronounced "ahh" like at the end of "meta". Just makin' it ryhme like a Boston accent haha

@kev Should have named it "The Meta Lettä" 😆

@cypnk looks like they were actually ready to connect over serial cable! My brother and I used to play Age of Empires over serial.

@jbauer you must relive the glory days! Do you still have an AOL disk with free hours? LOL

@victoria Fantastic piece! This is definitely something I strive to do and be better at each day.
