A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away… Well, maybe not quite that dramatic, but back in 2016 when I started this blog it was talking about installing Linux on an old MacBook Air. That turned out to be elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki, but earlier this year a new version of elementary OS was released – 5 Juno. Time to upgrade?(more…)
Until a few weeks ago, I’d never even heard of Mattermost, although I’ve enjoyed using Slack for a few work and personal projects. In less than a couple of hours, I now have my own Slack-like server, running Mattermost!
This really isn’t the blog I was expecting to be writing when I ordered this WiFi6 router online, but I’m quite pleased with the way things have turned out as I’ve solved my DHCP problem in the previous blog pretty cheaply!
Or should that be FreeNAS and AirPort issues? Given my UPS died less than a couple of weeks ago (I blogged about the new one here), the saying ‘bad things come in threes’ seems pretty relevant for me at the minute!(more…)
You can probably tell from the flurry of blogs, that I’m catching up on a few things I drafted over the last few weeks! The Apple AirPod Pro was my lastest purchase, which I picked up from the Apple store last Thursday (31 October), the day after they were launched!(more…)
My old APC Back-UPS ES – BE700G-UK decided to give up the ghost last weekend, started beeping and switched everything off! I bought it in 2011, so it’s not done too badly, costing me about £10 a year! It was probably a little underpowered for the equipment I had connected anyway, so it was time for an upgrade. Meet my new CyberPower UPS!(more…)
