Terraform and Ansible – The Dynamic Duo

Intro I've been doing DevOps work for a few months in my day job and it's been an awesome experience. I have most of my experience in doing things kinda "by hand". I would use hypervisor tools and interfaces to create virtual machines, log into those machines, and...

Fedora Silverblue – What Can Blue Do For You

There's a lot of choice in desktop Linux these days. So many distros and so many workflows to choose from. Some light, some heavy. Some traditional, some far-out. However, for the most part they all follow a very similar path. There's the base Linux system, systemd...

Southeast LinuxFest 2019

Southeast LinuxFest 2019

I don’t get out nearly as much as I should. I enjoy going to work and then coming home to just relax. Sometimes I’ll go and fly my drone, but that hasn’t been very often lately. This is something I plan to fix, but that’s a whole different story. So, with the help of...

Too Many Distros – Less Distractions, More Focus

Free and open source software is a great ecosystem. The method of creating software out in the open has enabled many users and vendors alike to expand their influence in a world typically dominated by closed platforms. We see many new projects pop up each day and...

Emotional Attachment and Tech

Love or Lust? Finding our way between the two can be difficult in life. With personal relationships this can be especially tricky, but it also seems to extend to our personal tech. There are people who absolutely love their devices and there are those who just enjoy...

Moving to an iMac

Moving to an iMac

I’ve used Linux for a long time. Since 2001, actually. I’ve dabbled with different platforms over time as well. Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Android, iOS, and Chrome OS. All of these have their own pros and cons, of course. However, in line with my digital decluttering...

Fedora 29 – My Personal Favorite

I’ve spent a fair amount of time with Fedora over the years. Actually, it has been the most used distro of Linux for the nearly 20 years I’ve used the operating system. So, when the time came to test it out for the BigDaddyLinux Live distro challenge, I was pretty...

Digital De-clutter

I've been on a bit of a crusade to de-clutter my digital life. I'm not sure how it ends up happening, but eventually you end up with a load of gadgets, laptops, cables, and hardware. I know some people would think this is a great thing. Look at all the possibilities!...

iPad Pro (2018) Review

So, I mentioned in my previous post about being interested in new ways of computing. Devices like 2-in-1's, Chromebooks, and tablets have promised new ways to do the things we need or want to get things done. I've tried all of these and I can say, without a doubt, the...

Thoughts on a GNU/Linux Tablet

Tablets are interesting devices. They serve as some of the most convenient and effective entertainment and digital consumption methods in our modern society. They are light, yet big enough to not be obnoxious to read on or watch a video on. They also possess excellent...

iPad Pro First Impressions

iPad Pro First Impressions

I've been interested in the future of computing since I was a kid. I've been through the desktop dominance of the 90s and early 2000s, seen the proliferation of laptops in the late 2000s, and the rise of mobile computing in the past decade. I've always been wanting...

Handy Cheat Sheets for Linux

There have been many times where I've wanted to get something done in the terminal but I forgot the options or syntax of a tool at the time. I then proceed to Google the solution which takes time away from working. Thankfully there is a nice tool available as a Snap...

Starting Out

Starting out doing a blog/website feels a bit daunting. However, just like many things in life, the journey is worth it. I'll be talking about Linux, Free and Open Source software, enterprise IT, and anything else that seems neat to me. Feel free to come along for the...
