Investing in a Synology has been one of the best tech decisions I’ve made in a long time. I currently have it running Plex (with a host of supporting apps), a Pastebin, a home surveillance system, Homebridge, and a couple smaller things. Highly recommend.
If you’re in the market for some extra disk space, this is a great deal on an 18TB drive. Use it as is or shuck it.
I’ve been going down the rabbit hole of setting up my own little homelab/server. So far, I’ve been able to successfully roll out my own privatebin, video downloader, file uploader, homebridge, and media server. I’m happy with how far I’ve gotten and with how much I’ve learned so far. Docker ftw.
I’m going down the Synology rabbit hole. Ordered a DS423+ with 2 Toshiba N300 10TB drives to start with. I’ve also got some additional RAM and NVMe en route. My primary use will be ChannelsDVR (Plex-like), but I’m sure I’ll find more and more uses for it. Anyone else using one?

Heading back to Broken Bow with some extended family in about 5 weeks.
Anyone using any combination of Plex, Channels, PlayOn, or other variations? Any strategies you use, specifically for streaming shows?
I’m considering releasing a Developer/Designer version of Tiny Theme (Tiniest Theme?) if there’s enough interest. It would be pretty bare with little-to-no CSS or built-in 3rd party plugin support. All styling and dev would be dependent on creating a custom theme on top of it. Any thoughts?
Recent updates to Tiny Theme (1.8.7) include:
- Improved Syntax Styling
- Improved Pagination Config
- Support for Reply on Mastodon
- Added simpler version checking for support cases
- Support for Hugo 0.117*
*Verify that all installed plugins also support Hugo 0.117 before updating to Hugo 0.117.

What’s a good bike for casual use? Basic exercise, family rides, etc. I’m not looking to break the budget, just something reasonable. I’m 6’3” (191 cm).
If anyone stumbles upon the Uno: Show ’em No Mercy game (probably only at Walmart) and would ship it to me, I’d cover all the costs. My son wants it for his birthday and it’s nowhere around here (unavailable for shipping too).

After testing out ≈ 10-12 iPhone 15 Pro Max cases from companies like Apple, Spigen, Nomad, Torras, Totallee, and others…I finally landed on my favorite. It’s a slim leather case with metal buttons and full MagSafe compatibility by Mujjo.

I need a bookmark manager:.
- Simple, cross-platform (Mac, iOS, browser)
- Not just read-it-later
- No (or limited) social aspects
- Simple organization
Pocket, Instapaper, Readwise Reader, Reeder, Matter, M.b bookmarks, Omnivore don’t fit. Pinboard is closest but it’s browser only and dated. Suggestions?
I’m rolling with a simple “Quick Note” shortcut for my iPhone action button right now. Anyone else do something different?
