Hello! I'm Hamzah. I'm a /#devops engineer in my day job. I live in .
I consider myself a hardcore geek, but these days most of my time is taken up by my three kids and wife.

I'm very interested in automation, and have a small addiction to , and .

When using to configure containers, do you use the anslbe native docker_container, generate a docker-compose file, or generate a systemd unit which executes a docker run, or something else?
I haven't really used Ansible to build containers before. I'm kind of leaning towards generating a docker-compose file, but interested to hear what others do!

A question for the fanboys. My work is going to get me a MacBook Air M1 for me as I'm currently using a Pixelbook as a temporary laptop which isn't ideal. I haven't really used Macs much tbh. I'm just looking at some reviews of it, and it seems the M1 only supports a single external display? is that correct?

Just watched Boss Level. I quite enjoyed it. It's one of those movies you have to kind of turn your brain off, and ignore plot holes. It's a kind of funny, violent, action movie with a lot of silly/snarky lines.

Just curious, are there any ARM based laptops which are comparable to the M1 based MacBooks?

Somehow I can't think of any weekend projects this week. Yesterday I done absolutely nothing, and today so far I haven''t done anything. Kids have a cold, so I'm not going to take them outside.
A bit bored for the first time in a while 😅

My headset microphone is crap, everyone always complains that it's too quiet, even when I have the volume set to the max. So I've started using a wireless lavaliere microphone I got for free a few years ago. Sound is a lot better, but unfortunately it does also pickup my kids making noise in the background.

Here is a question for / users. Is there a way to backup a deb package from an existing system? For example, if the original deb has been removed from all the mirrors somehow, is it possible to re-create it from an existing machine some how?

Is there any graphical friendly backup software for Linux similar to Time Machine? I asked this before, but I can't remember the responses.

I basically want something that knows when it is connected to my home network, and do the backup to my NAS instead of trying to backup when I'm somewhere else, and my NAS isn't available.

I was listening to BBC news this morning. I don't usually, but I was ironing my shirt, and figured why not.
I found it funny how they were getting "tech recruiters" to comment on the outage..... as if they are the industry experts on such matters 🤨

It's a bit annoying that the minio helm chart has been deprecated in favour of the minio-operator.
The operator doesn't support running as an S3 gateway, or NFS gateway.

I wish SMR disks were OK for ZFS. They are so much cheaper than other disks.
