I like playing around with the latest versions of FreeNAS before they are released, but not by running the latest version on my main server. Oh no! The best way to do this is to create a FreeNAS VM on the FreeNAS server, although after upgrading to 11.1-U4 I was struggling to make this work.
I’m on a bit of a blogging roll and trying to finishing off some of the drafts I’d saved over the past few months! In the middle of April, I was supposed to be getting my Gas and Electricity meters replaced for Smart Meters, but it turns out that most of the Smart Meters that are currently being installed aren’t actually that smart!
Pain is a relative thing, so for some people spending 2-3 days tinkering with FreeNAS after an upgrade might not actually feel that painless, but in the grand scheme of things, it probably took less time than I was expecting before I started. (more…)
At the end of last year, I wrote a blog about our new kitchen here. At the other end of our kitchen is an open plan dining area which was redecorated at the same time. The finishing touch was to replace the dining room lamp, which I didn’t mind but my partner did. We’ve really struggled to find something both of us like and after visiting too many shops, and ordering and returning 3-4 online lights I’d pretty much given up. I then got an e-mail from her suggesting a futuristic looking Philips Hue model, which I’d not even considered considering how much she moans about the Hue GU10’s in the lounge that can only be turned on and off using Alexa! I had to check she was’s joking, but apparently not, so another was ordered online pretty safe in the knowledge that Amazon would take it back without any problems if it didn’t fit in.
