Moving into a new long term place in 3ish months.
Let's talk about Home Labs & Automation.
I'm going to be building my own Nas server, probably raspi pi 4 powered. This will handle all my storage/archiving needs as well as running my servers.
CoreDNS and/or pi-hole/adguard
Something for media(mainly video streaming) streaming.
portainer w/ misc servers/services
Probably traefik for ingres
Hmmm... more to come.
So I was at one point thinking of self hosting a music server.
Recently I just ended up deciding to simply use syncthing to sync my music library from my pc to my phone since I had about 59gb unused on my phone. Now that's 10gb of 320kbps mp3s.
For music players I'm using cmus and black player.
Black player works well and looks good.
Personally, I have a syncthing folder on my computer and phone that stores them (and syncs any new one added).
Both have passwords/biometrics for login.
My synching folder currently isn't encrypted but I do want to find a way to do that, that doesn't require remembering yet another password. Maybe I'll get a Yubikey for this.
My dad has a PowerBook g4. He heard that Linux could revive old machines, so I helped him get Lubuntu installed on there.
Here's a post I made detailing the process.
So today I learned that theres more checks in place for an HTTP request than there are a bank transfer.
With HTTP first you establish a connection, (as it uses TCP under the hood) then a payload is sent.
A bank transfer doesn't check that the bank account exists before sending it. Very much akin to a physical address, the payload gets sent then when someone realizes that address doesn't exist, the money is sent back.
Why do we do this exactly? Can we not improve this at all?
Been a while since I tooted.
To my metal friends, I think Judas Priest is my favorite "classic metal" band. Firepower being my favorite album, with Painkiller and Screaming for Vengeance coming next.
Screaming for Vengeance is actually the track that exposed me to JP. (Particularly Lee Prisby's cover)
Welp, I just lost a my favorited articles and rss feeds while trying to patch a missing cert file inside of miniflux's build. I wonder if it has a drop db it there or something...
While I'm mildly infuriated (in general and at myself) this time I can properly create a mount point for this container instead of using the ones created by #docker in /var
Ignore my really bad fail with the host machine name :(
