At least today, I managed to learn a lot. Prior to today, I never had a need to use or logical volume management. So today, I had to learn how to do a Linux install with LVM. Let's just say I am an LVM convert now. I had no idea just how powerful it really is.

@melroy Not anymore. I repurposed my Proxmox server into a NAS with TrueNAS SCALE.

@melroy The LVM stuff I did was at work today. I took a retired Dell R720 to turn into a RHEL 8 test box. It has 4 1TB SAS drives in it. LVM+xfs rocks.

Are there any experts that could offer some points as to how to troubleshoot a cron job not even running? I know I have my crontab successfully setup and that cron is at least trying to call the script but the script never runs.

@melroy Thanks for the article. I ended up discovering the problem was in my script. I changed lines in my script to use absolute paths instead and things started working.

@melroy It definitely is. The only problem is my masto instance is being self-hosted at home. My ISP blocks port 25. I have a VM in the cloud that I could probably dedicate to sending the email but it would end up in spam. 😕

@melroy Thank you again! I didn't consider that I could relay through Gmail.

housepanther OP ,
@housepanther@masto.goblackcat.net avatar

@melroy Question: Is it necessary for me to create self-signed certs for this relay setup?

housepanther OP ,
@housepanther@masto.goblackcat.net avatar

@melroy No apologies are necessary. I got the gmail relay working!

@ashleyspencer @actuallyautistic @bookstodon This is interesting because I am autistic and about to begin working on a technical book.

I'm a little sad this afternoon. Maybe some of it is brought in by sheer exhaustion. I don't know. I'm not looking forward to another lonely weekend. I'll fill some of it up by working on SQL and Salesforce but I really miss the love of a woman.

@melroy Would you mind sharing that kbin docker how-to with me again? I thought I bookmarked the site but I didn't. 😿

I really should not have had a large Dunkin Donuts hot coffee. But damnit, I woke up cold because the temperature swing from the high 70s to the low 60s was enough and now I just made my akathisia worse because caffeine is a strong stimulant.

Has lemmy gotten any better as of late? I am thinking about giving lemmy a try again.

housepanther OP ,
@housepanther@masto.goblackcat.net avatar

@melroy I'll look into it. The last time I tried to get it going, it ended up in an . But that's more of a "me" problem than kbin. Is kbin available as a docker container?

housepanther OP ,
@housepanther@masto.goblackcat.net avatar

@melroy Okay, I'll give it a try again.

@melroy Sleep is a good thing. I need it badly. I've been struggling a bit with insomnia.

housepanther OP ,
@housepanther@masto.goblackcat.net avatar

@melroy Sorry about the tinnitus. That's no fun at all. 😞

housepanther OP ,
@housepanther@masto.goblackcat.net avatar

@melroy I think it has a lot to do with the PTSD symptoms. There's no rhyme or reason to when they wax and wane. Right now the symptoms are in a waxing phase so I tend to get startled out of sleep.

housepanther OP ,
@housepanther@masto.goblackcat.net avatar

@melroy There's no real cure for it. It's just symptom mitigation. Like most mental illness. I would love for their to be a cure one day but there's no profit in cures.
