First Build in the New Shed
Last week, the power was finally connected to the shed. I’ve not talked about it in a while, but I paid to have it roofed, as I have no business being on a roof. Jenny helped me with painting the structure.… Read the rest

What I Did on My Mid-Summer Vacation: Day 2

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

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

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.

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
