This video finishes the series I started last year with getting a short-term rental property ready to rent. In this video I go over the networking equipment and the general setup we’re using to offer WiFi for our guests.

The UniFi Dream Machine has been working well for over a year now. Since recording this video, I’ve had to do one remote update of the firmware for a major vulnerability in October, 2023. The update worked without a hitch.

I just posted a video about purchasing an EOS R. While originally intending to jump to the R5, I just couldn’t justify purchasing one at this point.

It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a year since we visited Papua New Guinea. I’ve been thinking about creating this short film ever since.

With work finally easing up a bit, I found some time to edit this video I recorded a few months back. In the video, I go through the process of adding a new disk to a Dell PowerEdge server and using it in VMware ESXi. Then I add a second disk and migrate to a RAID 1, and a third disk to migrate to a RAID 5, expanding the disk capacity along the way. All without rebooting the server.
