If I had a late start yesterday, I was even more delayed on the third day.
While I am writing blog posts, this is one that I find myself searching for quite often. Be another one to bake into the Ansible template. If you want a wicked awesome login banner, like this one:

The Elitedesk 800 G4 Mini PC is just about 100% built, hardware-wise. I am waiting for the VGA Flex IO port to arrive. Looks like I put it in the cart, but did not press “Buy” for a few days, so, mea culpa.… Read the rest
Learned about the update to History via this YouTube video.
Holy crows, this is a good one! I quickly noticed some expected things missing from the graphs, so I ran back through my device “Locations” and found a bunch of them either not set or not accurately set.… Read the rest

I turned the Nest thermostat, which drives the oil burner, down to 58F and ran around setting the head-units to 66F.… Read the rest

Today, they installed the four head-units, the backer plates for the exterior channels, and the pad for the outdoor compressor. Tomorrow they install the line sets and hopefully the outdoor compressor.… Read the rest
My basement temperature and humidity sensor has been up and running for 2.5 years now with hardly a hiccup at all. But, it is time for an upgrade.
I’ve made some tweaks to the page over the years, but I ‘ve grown less and less happy with the matplotlib implementation.… Read the rest
Really, I used this just as a guide to update the Unifi controller in the Docker container. You could do that a time or two before it gets simple, which it is. Just a new way of doing things, I guess.… Read the rest
