Time Machine is dead, long live Time Machine

Time Machine is the backup utility that’s been built into MacOS since I started using OS X back in 2008. It’s really great and has a wonderful interface, although has some limitations and has never really played nicely with FreeNAS.

A New Year with FreeNAS Up-to-date

Unlike my update at the end of last year, I go into the New Year with FreeNAS up-to-date.  I’m running the latest version (11.2-U1), my jails are all on the latest version of FreeBSD (11.2) and they are mostly running the latest packages.  I’ve even updated the versions of PHP some of them are running.  2019 should be a quiet year!

MediaWiki

It’s been over a month since my last blog – the longest gap since I started blogging 2 years ago.  Yes, it’s been 2 years since I started on this journey of talking to myself 🙂  There are just too many things fighting for my time at present, with my new contract, daughter and dog taking up most of it.

I’ve been looking into potential replacements for the current internet/intranet solutions at work, so decided to have a play with MediaWiki as they are using this for a few things, but could be using it more.
