Recently my home server (a raspberry pi 3 with attached storage) has been encountering disk errors, and finally gave up on booting entirely. That’s probably because I’ve been running it 24/7 and it had a few unexpected reboots. (I should really add a physical shutdown switch someday).
I’ve been running my home server with fail2ban for quite some time, and it works great! So well that usually, there’s no need to think about the fact that it’s constantly under attack from around the globe (the internet is weird). Occasionally it’s fun to take a peek at the logs and see what sorts of things the ssh bruteforce attackers are trying. It looks like they’ve picked up some new tricks since the last time I checked…
I’m currently working on a game where the characters are hand-painted in Krita (an amazing digital painting tool!). I’m then using Spriter (also awesome!) to put together 2d animations. My original workflow for getting the images from Krita to Spriter is very manual and error-prone, so I’ve put together an automated script to do it for me.
TL;DR: If you’re syncing linux computers to your NAS then creating a safepoint to an external drive, that drive needs to be linux-formatted or you’ll get errors.
