Not too long ago, I updated our home networking equipment to an Ubiqui setup. However, we recently moved into a new house and I switched to a mesh wifi network. No, the switch was not just to increase wifi coverage throughout the entire house. The real motivator (ironically)… was that I needed a better ethernet connection…
I love the terminal multiplexer, tmux. It adds
functionality to the terminal, such as multiple tabs, pane splitting, and the
ability to detach and re-attach everything later (which is amazing when
ssh). I have been utilizing tmux even more at work, and recently
started to script the start up/configuration a tmux session for each project.
The other day, I decided to write a script to spin up a session for working on my
website… and thought it would be a great tutorial!
Over the past few months, I’ve been considering getting a tablet device for the first time since I was in college. After researching all sorts of options, I had myself convinced that I would likely be picking up a 2018 9.7” iPad at some point. Then I ordered an iPad Pro 10.5” (2017 model). Here’s why.
Last week, I extended the virtual disk of the VM hosting my jenkins server. Shortly after, I increased the maximum disk size of one of the job’s docker containers, maxing out the disk. This meant that I needed to extend the drive… again. If you ever do something twice, it is best to have it documented for the potential third time. So, here we are.
Right before Thanksgiving, one of the hard drives in my server started get noisy… very noisy. Fearing the worst, I did a backup, and shutdown the server until I had time to investigate further… and likely replace the drive. That time came this past week.
