Something to consider when posting hashtags:

For people using screen readers, they know when to separate words either by spaces, or uppercase letters. 'mastoart' will try to be pronounced as one word, whereas 'MastoArt' will be pronounced as 'Masto Art'. It just makes life a little bit easier for those who rely on screen readers to interact with the fediverse :bear_hugs:

STOP TRYING TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF DEBATE ONLINE. no right-thinking person goes onto online to find strangers to "debate" with. real people, ordinary, decent people, have only come online to view gifs of skeletons fucking

Since this isn't well known, the law here requires that if you step foot outside, you must

1. keep watch for the first moose of the day
2. fight it on sight

You may conduct your business before and after the fight, regardless of victory.

And now have a small NFS server set up to support the fairly limited storage needs I have. The NFS server, like Harbor, is set up as a VM separate from the cluster just to ensure that it can boot ahead of the cluster. Harbor still has some trouble when it comes to booting cleanly, but I'm less concerned about image pull errors than I am with volume storage being unavailable.

That's probably it for the night.

Can set up a service and it'll have almost-automatic DNS and TLS -- close to the sort of ideal. With MetalLB, I can also make things like the nginx ingress available to my home network, and Tailscale makes that available to me everywhere.

The only caveat is that it's not internet outage-proof, but since I can replicate my external DNS names into my local DNS servers, it's still pretty good.

At any rate, it's nice to have a place to experiment with things again.

After a year or more, I finally got around to rebuilding my home Kubernetes cluster. Tooling's gotten a lot better in that short of at ime.

Now using Talos Linux for the Kubernetes bits because I only have so much sanity to spare. It's been nice -- throw the ISO in Proxmox, load it up, configure it via API, and then bootstrap once at least the control plane is ready to go.

Threw Harbor, ExternalDNS, Tailscale, and cert-manager in and things are all playing nice.

I let my child watch 30 seconds of tv per day. "Father, may we witness the illusions?" they ask me.

Maybe upgrading curse a whole bunch wasn't the best idea while I'm trying to get everything unlocked again.

Almost gotten my save back to where it was in Vampire Survivors. Beta releases and OS hopping kept rolling it back to whatever Steam had, so I'd get a ways in, switch to another OS, and lose my progress.

what if github reimplements the social stuff they originally launched with to compete with twitter hashtag birdtakes

Currently very difficult to follow anyone on mastodon.social. Hopefully things settle down enough.

The two hardest-working cats, making sure I always have bed sheets to clean. Mostly Tater. Finn is just shadowing him.

Made shrimp alfredo tonight. Feel like it turned out pretty well -- probably the first time I've had three pans going at the same time (shrimp, pasta, and vegetables -- vegetables not pictured because they're just frozen veggies).

taking a fire axe to the side of an idling 18-wheeler to access the luscious truckmeat within

Of course Finn and Tater would choose to sleep on the side of the bed I use. I look forward to the looks of sheer disdain I receive for moving them over so I can sleep.
