Getting a 1 TB SSD today, to upgrade my game drive which is currently only at 256 (and mostly full already)

We have given up so much functionality for convenience.

I’m starting to think I should have gone with docker-compose over Kubernetes for my homelab, but Kubernetes is just so much fun πŸ™ƒ

Mastonaut is a really nice macOS client. It’s not free but the author has clearly put in the work to make it nice.
