Turns out it's really easy to connect a GitHub Actions runner to a #Tailscale tailnet:

That's handy.

I set out last night to write a quick post about how I'd spent a few hours playing with Gemini over the weekend but decided it was more trouble than it was worth.

Then I spent ~2.5 hours revamping how I had generated the Gemini version of my site and decided that I kind of like it. So maybe I'll keep exploring Geminispace.

You can find my capsule at: gemini://gmi.runtimeterror.dev

(or https://portal.mozz.us/gemini/gmi.runtimeterror.dev/ if you're a normal).

I'll share more details once I work out the CI/CD piece.

Racing car

Attention all drivers in the North Alabama / Tennessee Valley area: it's time to learn to drive better.

Our local car club is hosting our annual Performance Driving School on March 8-10, and you really should come out! It's a fun and educational time for drivers of all experience levels.

I attended the school three years in a row and learned a ton, and I've now been instructing for several more years (and learning even more). Come hang out!

I'm toying with a self-hosted metasearch engine called SearXNG:

I did some tinkering this weekend and implemented dynamically-generated OpenGraph images for my site using only built-in #Hugo functions.

I noticed a weird rhythmic vibration in my steering wheel this morning, but it goes away when I turn down my loud metalcore.

What a marvelous mechanical mystery!

My other project from this weekend was setting up my #HomeAssistant to use the Zigbee Home #Automation integration instead of the deCONZ add-on for managing my Zigbee devices. I really should have made this change ages ago, the ZHA experience is way better than the deCONZ one.

How did I get data from my weather station to show up on my omg.lol page?

I'm glad you asked! This post covers the details:

I did some tinkering with my omg web page (https://jbowdre.lol) this week, and was able to embed data from my #Tempest weather station without putting secrets in the client-side JavaScript.

Here are some quick notes on the setup: https://scribbles.jbowdre.lol/post/near-realtime-weather-on-profile-lol-ku4yq-zr

This was a really fun little project for me, so I'll probably share more technical details on the bigger blog soon.

I dusted off my portable #Vagrant-powered #Salt lab. It's so handy to be able to quickly spin up/down minions of various Linux flavors, right on my Chromebook.

I just migrated one of my SimpleX servers from AWS to GCP so that I wouldn't have to spend ~$5/mo for the IPv4 address on a "free tier" VM.
