New tools over the Christmas holidays

Over the Christmas holidays, organizing some tools, I realized my screwdriver collection was in pretty poor shape. I can’t even remember the last time I purchased a new screwdriver… I actually think most of them were in a tool-box that my wife had — when we first met. I’ve bought plenty of tools over the years, but new screwdrivers, apparently. So; I ordered some Wera screwdriver sets, and a few other things ..read more

I’ve been thinking about getting some CCTV cameras for a while, and last summer I purchased two Reolink PoE cameras. The footage is stored on a SD card, and uploaded to a local FTP server.

I’ve had a recurring thought, following by some intense Googling — using this Hugo powered site to microblog. The idea has been fueled by two desires; owning my own “microblogging” data — and making it quicker, and easier, to post something on my own domain. Being able to quickly snap a photo with my phone and publish it is not so easy with a static website. So I got the idea of using the Todoist app, and their API to post, build, and publish. This is the story of how I did it, and why it wasn’t a good idea ..read more

I’ve written before about how I deploy this blog using Drone.io. It works well, and does exactly what you’d expect. Lately I’ve started looking into reducing complexity in homelab systems that I use — and using “a Continuous Integration platform for busy development teams” felt a bit overkill for this tiny blog. So I switched to something simple; GNU Make ..read more

I’ve previously implemented a series taxonomy in Hugo, but it only supported a single series per post and used intersect which is kind of slow. Here is my improved implementation of a series taxonomy in Hugo ..read more
