Nearly completed my homelabs transition from a single docker node to a multi-architecture docker swarm cluster. I have only one container left to pull into the fold. And after that I’d say it’s time for more nodes! Sucks that I’ve gotta get through the workday before I can get back to working on this.

Finally migrated my home server storage over to my NAS. Copying the data over and watching the count fluctuate from 1 hour to 31 days was exciting. And I ended up having to completely rebuild my Nextcloud database anyway because of some lazy config years ago. But it’s nice knowing that all of the data is now protected from drive failures. And no longer stored entirely on a single USB drive 😅

I always make the mistake of trying to do “just one little thing before bed” on my homelab. An hour or so later and I’ve added system and traefik logs to my dashboard via promtail. Haven’t gotten it all prettied up just yet though. I set tonight’s finish line at “it works”.

I’ve spent the last few days refactoring my application from over to . While there are plenty of quirks, my biggest gripe with swift so far is the less than stellar documentation. There is so much that you are expected to know when looking at the documentation and the answers are rarely readily available.

While I can’t share my code, I think there is some value to some of the things I’ve learned along the way and perhaps I’ll do a write up with more detail than the docs provide.

You probably heard about HEY, the email service that claims to fix email. But let me share this service with you: It’s way cooler than HEY. 😉

For folks working in the tech industry, do your employers block you from working on software projects outside of work? Is that a normal thing in the industry?

I’ve got a tool that I made that is completely unrelated to my work but I am worried about sharing it publicly and losing my job. It’s kind of a bummer because I love the community and would like to contribute more.

Ive been running into non-stop issues with latest builds of OS on the Pi 4 running . Just about every 24 hours it becomes completely unresponsive. Finally decided to install the 64-bit image on a card and run that instead. Heres to hoping it is much more reliable.

The only thing I wish I could change about my work is the deployment time. Being online for overnight deployments on a Thursday is tedious.
