Today, I’m ready to adding two recently obtained 12T spinning disks to r730-03. This host is the work-horse which houses all the main backups and database regression testing. It also hosts my newly-created but not yet-functional graylog jail. I will be following a previous post about adding drives because I don’t want to remember these […]
If it doesn’t belong anywhere, it belongs here.
I’ve been trying to update the website to PHP 8.1, but the WordPress Theme I’ve been using is from 2016 and has not been updated. For now, I’ve tossed in the Neve theme, which means it looks wonky, but the content is available. I’ll fix it up soon.
This is just rough notes for myself.

Home Assistant is not friendly for plain installs. It seems designed for containers or running everything out of pip install. That, in itself, is a disturbing trend I’ve seen on several projects (what? you’re not running a git cloned image?). I’ve seen reports of people running containers etc. However, I want to run this on
Yes, this is blatant bragging. But realistically, this is more a function of my ISP (Verizon FiOS) and my electricity supplier (PECO) than my abilities. To be fair, it is more contingent upon no power failures than anything else. I do have a UPS, but that’s only good for about 10-20 minutes. For August 2021,
This started earlier today and I solved it only just now. It took me a while to find out it was duplicate cron jobs, and even longer to find out why. It started with lockf notifications (if you’ve never heard of lockf before, please read this Twitter thread for examples). In short, one of those

I like boot environments (BE) on FreeBSD. They were especially handy when building the AWS host for FreshPorts, since I had no serial console. I would create a BE saving the current status, then make some changes. I’d mark the current BE as boot once, so I could boot back in the known good BE.
I recently discovered that you can delete all snapshot from a ZFS filesystem with a single command. It came to me via fortune: You can delete a range of ZFS snapshots (a-z) in multiple ways. The following will delete d and all earlier snapshots: zfs destroy mypool/data@%d To delete d and all later snapshots: zfs
