Someone I know calls his unmanaged switch a hub. It drives me crazy!

I'm thinking about replacing my home server with multiple Pi's. One exception is the game server that is only used on weekends. I'm thinking about writing automation to create and destroy a VPS every weekend to keep the monthly cost down. I would need to use and , which I am already versed. The home electricity savings would more than cover the VPS cost.

One hurdle would be the IP of the VPS changing all the time. Hmm....

Looking at the forecast, I guess I'll put Stabil in my gas tank and tuck it into the corner 😭

It's abruptly cold outside these days and darker. It makes me want to subscribe to an MMO as I like to do in this season, yet is right around the corner. Hmm... one month sub maybe?

We’ve had our pet for around a year or so. We got it (him?) when he was a puny juvenile. He is pretty nice size now and looks cool. He is also more curious at us instead of being scared like crazy. He just cocked his head at me and stretched closer to my face. Fun! When we got him, he always ran to the edge of his container and clawed against the glass wall to try getting out and away.
