I'm Back

Trying out a new editor called Typora. It is meant to be one of these minimal editors, and so far, it is. But it’s also a little confusing… Mind you, I do not read docs, so that’s probably why I’m confused…

On other notes, still working on the #100daysofhomelab on Twitter. Still running my own ASN, swapped my firewall to a Sophos XG home edition, and I’ve been playing with some other things too. For more random updates, check out my Twitter feed @tiernano. Hopefully, I will start posting stuff here more, eventually…

Its been a while

So, It’s been a few months and I have been busy with random stuff… I started on the #100daysofhomelab challenge and so far have broken a lot of different things. I tweet about it every day so far on Twitter.

I am in the process of building the CloudShed, by converting my old sheds into something more secure, weatherproof and connected to the servers of my home lab.

I got IPv6 working in the house with my own ASN.

I also got a second internet connection in! 2Gb/200Mb/s Fiber to the Home. Very sweet and fast!

So, I’ve been busy…

I really should get back to writing stuff here…

Initial Post

I have been trying to write quick notes about what’s going on in a journal, but 1: I can’t read my handwriting, and 2: It becomes painful to write too much… I do plan on still writing stuff in a journal since I kind of want my handwriting to get better… it’s been a LOT of years since I have had to write anything of any length on paper, but this makes things a little easier for writing quick stuff.

So, as my first post, some quick notes:

  • The mammy has covid… or at least it looks like she does. The antigen test came back positive… Mine came back negative but will do another one tomorrow. My throat is sore, and I have been pretty tired for the last few days… More tests tomorrow.
  • after waiting nearly 6 months, my 2021 Mac Book Pro 16" with M1 Max and 64GB RAM plus 1TB SSD arrived yesterday. It was a BTO and was ordered from the shop back in October… It’s a VERY nice machine. Benchmarks are due on the main site eventually.
  • This site is built with Hugo and written in VS Code. It uses GitHub for storage and Cloudflare Pages for building and hosting.

That’s enough for a first post. More later…
