Starting to regret trying to test out #Proxmox, "trying" being the operative word being that installation has been a buggy nightmare on both boxes I've attempted to use it on.
#Ubuntu server used to be a nice minimal distro I used happily for years. Installed it for first time in quite a while, the installer is now badly broken and the boot up time took something like 10 minutes. If it hasn't taken me over an hour just to install it through many bugs and crashes I would've given up before the login prompt arrived. Shame they had to ruin it
After months of delay I finally pulled the trigger on upgrading my #homeserver, by which i mean I'm replacing everything but the drives (for now). It arrives fully loaded with 32GB RAM, a first for me. Thought it might be a little decadent but then saw my console log warnings going back months telling me the swap was full so I thought #yolo, i just got through 2020!
#mildlyinteresting observations so far.
People's names in the disc title. Whole series of TV shows in one title with no chapters (grr!).
Seasons of programs where the discs are physically identical to each other, problematic if you remove them from their cases at the same time!
Multi-angle releases, totally forgot about those.
We always had a fire extinguisher and mainline connected fire alarm in the hallway of our apartment, but I just installed two more battery-operated smoke alarms in the lounge, bedroom, and basement.

At 99 kroner each, it's pretty cheap to do and could be life-savers one day!
How well is your home protected from fire?
I've been considering buying a weather station for home use for a while, but now I've found there's at least 2 of them in radio range belonging to my neighbours broadcasting temp, humitidy and rainfall readings. Maybe I just need to get myself a wind sensor then I'll have everything I need! #wx #rtlsdr #rtl_433
Catching up on some 99PI episodes from last year. How did I miss this fabulous episode about Geocities!?

#tfw you destroy 64GB with a snap of the fingers, each time my Raspberry Pi burns out yet another SD card. Probably a GenX/Xennial thing.
