Background It has been 1.5 years since i ditched my Drobo. It broke during the beginning of the pandemic. A year and more has passed. Freenas Its rock stable. At one point, I had 100+ days of zero reboot. I just feel at times, it’s under-utilised. Don’t get me wrong, it is great for being… Continue reading A year with FreeNAS and Unraid
Following up to the last post. Networkchuck released a video on load balancing and got me thinking. Hey! That’s not what I need but the parts on Cloudflare is exactly what I needed! A quick check and it allows 2 important criteria. 1. The cert do not expire quickly or at least auto renew. 2.… Continue reading A better Let’s Encrypt with Namecheap Hosting with Cloudflare

It met the requirement of install and forget, allow me to add harddisk as I go while providing redundancies and allow me to swop out the already installed harddisk when I want to upgrade. As of… Continue reading I’ve ditched Drobo
This is not a C Loop. This is a dream come true for the makers!

Send a Wave. Not an email in future. Very promising. Will sure use it! It’s businesses catching up that’ll be the bitch.

Synctoy is really showing it’s age.
