TP-Link is no Cisco: VLAN configuration

On the surface, my TP-Link T2600G-28TS v3 managed switch appears to have everything that I would expect to have for some intermediate networking in the home. Most of my complaints with the device, to date, have been minor, such as the idle time-out having a max of 120 seconds.… Read the rest

Synology NAS VPN Server

It has been a long while since I wrote about VPN servers. This is because of the change of job, and then working from home for over a year because of COVID-19. But I have kept playing with the technology over the years.… Read the rest

The Tale of the Two NAS Boxes

Wow, what a run this was! I got tired of waiting for the WD MyBook or whatever it was called to be back in stock, so I started looking for better solutions. OpenMediaVault was not really getting things done for me.… Read the rest

OneDrive on Linux, Revisited

You may recall that I managed to get OneDrive running on my main Pi with the goal of uninstalling the OneDrive client from the Windows machines and just running everything via a mapped drive to a SAMBA share.

This has been…mostly working.… Read the rest

Everything old is new again! But smaller.

Getting Kodi/DLNA to work with the Roku was a non-starter, and, amazingly, the following morning Jenny asked me how to get podcasts on the Roku.… Read the rest

That’s gonna leave a mark

Tonight after work, I went to the basement and gathered a few tools that I would need in order to bang out the door for the fort. By the time I got to the backyard, however, my plans had been changed.… Read the rest

It’s all over but the shouting

I think, and I could very well be wrong, but I think I am done with the main structure for the fort.

The painter showed up bright and early this morning. She was sober this time, which was a plus. She stained the gangplank, then knocked out the unpainted half of the front wall, then got started on the light blue of the inside.… Read the rest

Gangway for The Mighty Roof!

Or something like that. The hardware for the gangplank came in. As I was heading into The Big Orange Store, I spied that someone posted to Amazon that they used 2x10s for their ramps. Sold.

I managed to hit joist while trying to secure the gangplank to the deck.… Read the rest

A Roof For A Fort

Saturday’s work on the fort was mainly spent gathering supplies at Big Orange. It was insane.

Three walls makes a fort

Or something like that. Three walls up, mainly square, and carriage bolted to the deck. I have the framing plan for the front wall and went to the Home Despot today for materials.

I did not get the two sheets of plywood, as I was not feeling the lashing of said plywood to the roof of Jenny’s Outback.… Read the rest
