NFS Meets Systemd

Old dog here. Just learned a new trick! Found out today that you can use systemd to mount NFS shares. It was easy. I have a network-wide downloads folder shared to 3 computers. I disabled the NFS mount in fstab, enabled it in systemd and did an fstab bind to put it where it was with the NFS mount. Neat!

A Truly Happy Christmas

This is the first Christmas that our bleneded family has lived under the same roof. I’ve been stessing a little bit. I’m not usually the spiritual type, but tonight felt a little different. At about 12:30 I felt like I should go outside, and I did, only to find it was snowing. Not only was Christmas my mom’s favorite holiday, she also loved snow on the day. So I take it as a sign that I’m doing things the right way when I go outside and see snow on Christmas Eve when I’ve recently made some family moves with regard to Susie and Jameson....

Another Changeup

Back in November I decided to move away from Ghost, and in doing so experimented with Nextjs. I liked the look and feel, but it was super slow to respond, as I was running in develop mode, because I couldn’t get build to work; it just kept throwing errors. So I’m back again today, happily nestled up with Hugo. I think this might be where I stay for the foreseeable future....

Here They Are!

Here it is! The best time of year! The Holiday Season! So I’m not a huge holidays person. Christmas was my mom’s favorite holiday. She went all out with decorating, baking, music. The works. And after she died it was always a hard time for me. When Mason was little, and he believed, it was easier. I enjoyed the season. But then he turned into a teenager and the spirit vanished!...

Jost got news today that a friend of mine is on a ventilator. She has covid. My ex-mother-in-law sent me a message this morning, informing me of this sad, sad news. I’ve known this woman since high school. They took her to the hospital in a helicopter. Admittedly I haven’t spent much time with her, or her husband, who is also a good friend, since the pandemic started. I’ve been a homebody, cautious....

Some Updates

If you noticed, there are some changes around here. I decided to move away from Ghost and try this blog with next.js and markdown. I had to manually recreate all the blog posts, but I think it’s ultimately worth it. I have been less and less impressed by Ghost recently and their move to monetization, as I obviously don’t monetize this beast. And Wordpress is much more easily compromised with plugins....
