I think the message here is that Hitler doesn’t want to use Kubernetes. So, uh, now I don’t know how I feel about that.

Anybody here have Security+ cert? If so, did you get Network+ first?

yes to the first, no to the second

Yes to the second, no to the first. But I got the network+ so many years ago that it may even be considered another era. Of all my certs the network+ was probably the most valuable applicable knowledge with the least value in the market… wierd.

Security+ was the other way around zero applicable knowledge, but a fundamental job requirement

Folks, do you have any recommendations for NAS with 2 bays and ability to connect via usb-c/thunderbolt3? I have decade old synalogy NAS but it starts to run really slow after few recent OS upgrades and I’m starting to consider a replacement. It would be nice to have ability to install additional software like e.g. pihole or docker so I can drop rpi being online. Also I would be thrilled if I could just insert synalogy formatterd disks and be done with migration but AFAIK synalogy doesn’t offer usb-c connectivity in their products

I’ve put together some of my scripts for creating cloudposse/packages PRs (mainly new apps I want easy/quick access to on any system that are released via github) into its own repo and dropped it out to the world here if anyone is interested: https://github.com/zloeber/ghr-installer. The side benefit of this wrapper is that one off tools which are released on github can be more quickly found and installed regardless if you decide to release it as a full blown packages bundle. Run make install and, assuming you have whiptail installed, one should get prompted for baseline information to get most kinds of releases automatically installed at the most recent release version.

I used it to install minikube and k3sup for example. Most github releases should work well enough I’d think

At the very least this should be handy for the cli tool junkies out there that are having a hard time keeping up with all the new binary releases that seems to have emerged with golang’s rising popularity…

That’s pretty cool - how you can select the package. Does it default to some arch by auto detecting?
