Just finished moving pixelfed.nz and mastodon.nz onto a new server. There was a fair bit of data to move around 😅

I've just decommissioned peertube.nz

There was way too much spam/admin involved for what I got out of it. It's definitely got potential as a platform. However, even with email verification I still had >100 spam accounts created to maybe 2-3 real ones.

Attempting to revive a dead Fossil smartwatch. The charging rings underneath fell off so glued them on but died shortly after

Hooked it up to 'life support' and can see it pulling current so now we wait!

I now have #ZFS on a drive in #Manjaro woohoo!

I actually thought creating a pool and importing it etc, would be way harder. Turns out the hard part was working out a bunch of services needed to be enabled for it to mount on boot. But now it does!
So stoked, single drive for now, but will be mirrored shortly when funds allow. Unfortunately had to replace immediately due to old drive being on its way out.

Just pushed my below-average dipole a little bit higher... Probably the best SNR I have ever seen on 20M.

Should we put mastodon.nz on the glitch-soc fork?



I need to put some time aside to clean the outdoors area of this place. There's been a broken deck chair in the back of the untamed grass forest since I moved in 18 months ago 😂

When your landlord puts off installing a heatpump so you buy a monster heater to keep the place warm.. Average power usage has increased from 11kWh/day to 30kWh/day :/

I wish remote working was more widely accepted. I completely understand some people can't separate work efficiently and can get distracted. But for others it's a dream.

I love it.

I can maintain a healthy routine as well as a noticeable increase in productivity and save so much time and money excluding traffic and parking/fuel costs

Decided. I'll keep it, domain is cheap enough and it's much faster for me than matrix.org

I reeeeeeally need to use my camera more. It's just sitting in a bag ready to go.. not useful sitting in a drawer though

I can't decide whether to keep the domain mtrx.nz and maintain my own matrix server or not. I like maintaining my own data and not adding extra load to matrix.org.. but it's almost more effort than it's worth

Can Spring come back yet? It's a little bit cold and not even at the peak of winter yet

We don't usually get many 4C mornings and I'm realising my heating bill is about to go through the roof

Sooo I bought an iPad mini. Doing my ✈️ Instrument rating and it's easier to use them for Airport charts. Except I didn't want to spend an extra NZ$220~ for the Cellular model just to get GPS. Bought a Garmin GLO2 (Bluetooth GPS) for much cheaper. Let's see how it goes!
