Other adventures …

I've mostly ported my homelab across, and took the opportunity to add actual monitoring and actual resiliency. I'll do a post on the janky setup.
I've also (thanks to some kind mastodaoine) gotten set up with restic to some remote storage. I'm glad software like this is still being made …

In among posts about fiddling with electronics and occasional life updates, here's a life update!
My partner (and now fiancee, I guess?) isn't very present on the internet, and escews social media in fairly impressive ways. But, we've been together for close to 15 years, so we decided to make …
