My initial problem: I have an elixir project I’m building primarily on linux, but I want it to work on Windows, too, and I’m using bcrypt, which needs nmake to compile on Windows. One must install Visual Studio (VS), but that’s not enough. Your terminal/PowerShell CLI environment won’t know about VS by default. VS includes
Having recently set up netdata at home just to have some stats/performance dashboards for my home servers, I wanted to dig in a little and see if I could collect throughput for my EdgeRouter interfaces. It’s should be possible with the SNMP collector so let’s see!

I imagine a lot of people identifying with her view, yet I find it deeply flawed and misguided.
I’m really liking my Pi-Hole.
Katie gave me a Raspberry Pi Zero W for Christmas, and while it’s also inspired other projects to come down the line, I finally settled on using it for Pi-hole.
