Recently I restarted my journey towards a self hosted photos system again. This time I was planning on trying it immich. Immich provides a docker compose file to startup their entire stack of 6+ containers, which I wanted to run on unraid that lacks compose in the default configuration. Queue journey to get docker compose capabilities on unraid.Continue reading “Docker Compose on Unraid”
I’ve had a few times now where I can’t grab a new container image to startup due to their rates limits on docker hub. This has been quite annoying, and there is a free plan for double the image pulls. Here is how you can login on unraid and setup the go file so it persists between reboots.Continue reading “Docker Hub Login on Unraid”
With the limited bandwidth of my Comcast network and the various services I run all competing for it, it’s time to turn on some QOS services and rules on my Unifi network. We’ve been seeing problems with voice and video meetings that some standard QOS will hopefully remedy.Continue reading “Enabling Unifi QOS”
unRAID supports multiple notification platforms for keeping you informed about what the server is doing, the only problem is, I don’t use any of those notification platforms. I have however started using ntfy.sh, which has been working well for my home assistant notifications, and is a very simple platform. What I’d like to do is integrate it into unRAID so that I can make use of it there as well.Continue reading “Using ntfy.sh to send unRAID notifications”
One thing you never want to see when you look at the screen for your file server is an error about corrupted data. Let alone after seeing read errors from one of your disks during a parity check. I recently had that sort of fun with my NAS.Continue reading “UnRAID XFS MetaData Corruption”
I recently decided to upgrade one of my printers between prints. This ended up causing problems when the update failed, and left the machine in an incident state. The printer would display that the version number is abnormal, but then the repair attempts it tried also failed, and it refused to print in its software state.Continue reading “Bambu Firmware Failed to Install / Version is Abnormal”
I do small experiments from time to time to try out features or functionality before building them into a project (or project design even). In this case I wanted to try out the IR functionality in WLED for a project that may not have WiFi for access to the full fledged WLED feature set.Continue reading “IR Remote with WLED”
Another day, another type of data to import into CATIA. This time is the classic SVG format used by LightBurn and often edited with InkScape. This is pretty quick but I wanted a bunch of screenshots to make it easy to follow.Continue reading “Getting SVG Data into CATIA”
Unable to Perform Path Operations
If you can’t do boolean operations in InkScape, you may have to un-group the paths. It can’t do path operations on groups, and sometimes InkScape will put a single object into a group. You can combine paths and do boolean operations on them that way, but that is using the path combine tool, you just cannot use the grouping feature.
You can’t use object operations on it for LightBurn to understand it. No use of object clip or mask should be used when creating files for use in LightBurn. You can make use of path difference or intersection to make changes to similar effect when avoiding the object tools.
Working on my docker swarm recently I noticed that my storage was running low. After investigation, I found I had 17GB of usage by my docker registry. I have no need to have that many versions of my custom built containers on hand, so I went through the process of cleaning it up.Continue reading “Cleaning up the docker registry”
