At this point I’m reasonably confident that this is the longest I’ve ever gone in my life without crossing an international border…

553 TB written across 13,402 hours, that's… about 11.5 MB/s continuously for like 18 months

Current home infrastructure curse level: Trying to get Ubuntu installed on a machine but I can’t find any USB drives that are big enough, so I’m putting Ubuntu on a VM so I can get PXE boot working. Maybe.

$pharmacy: “Come get your flu shot, appointments available”
Me: “Ooh, when”
$pharmacy: “In a month, other side of town”

i'm considering running my own DNS as well, this will surely end well
