It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a year since we visited Papua New Guinea. I’ve been thinking about creating this short film ever since. A couple of months ago, after deciding I had procrastinated long enough, I got started on the project. Here’s the final result: my story of our visit to Normanby Island…a day I’ll never forget.

After adding a second Mac mini to my homelab, I wanted an enclosure that would keep them secure. The last thing I need is for one of them to fall off a shelf.

I decided to go for the MacRack mini from ‪Sonnet‬. Here’s a video unboxing and review:

It’s been a few years since I’ve posted a video rundown of my homelab.  Here’s an update of what I’m using to support my dev projects like Seasonality.

This video took a little longer to post than I intended.  Last month we upgraded to a faster internet connection, and in this video I talk about some hurdles I had to overcome along the way.  Never thought I’d be using a Mac mini as a router!

I added a Mikrotik CRS328 Layer 3 switch to my home office network recently, and just posted a video showing how I’m using it with my network setup.  Check it out:

With work finally easing up a bit, I found some time to edit this video I recorded a few months back. In the video, I go through the process of adding a new disk to a Dell PowerEdge server and using it in VMware ESXi. Then I add a second disk and migrate to a RAID 1, and a third disk to migrate to a RAID 5, expanding the disk capacity along the way. All without rebooting the server.
