More #LoRa #APRS fun today. I went for a short run with a 100 mW tracker in my running belt, antenna smack against the middle of my back, and my i-gates recorded and gated the whole thing. It pegged all turns, etc. The tracker even has custom smart beaconing settings. Although the distances aren't big, I'm still impressed.

I am finding that the documentation for installing #mastodon via #docker is REALLY scattered, and hard to follow. I am having to piece together one solution from lots of different solutions. I feel like there should be one document that users can rely on.

I find myself backtracking and starting over several times, and i use docker every single day.

Started putting together my #Mastodon instance last night. Running in #Docker . Running into a weird problem (.env.production isn't writing) but shouldn't be too much longer.

I am haven't installed a firewall, as it's a raspberry pi on a local machine that I am going to point the router to, so it feels okay.

The real reason is that when i turn on the firewall, fediverse.local stops responding, and i have to use the IP Address.

I should probably just figure that out.

Run out of valves to power up your grid dip meter, but have a #NanoVNA lying around?

Next thing you know, your grid dip meter has a touchscreen:

The nanoVNA is probably the funnest piece of gear i've bought for the cheapest price in a hundred years.

Hardware to run my new #mastodon and #CastoPod instances was just delivered. I should probably print a case while i am waiting to mess with it. I can't really mess with any of it until after work.

I think i figured out what i am doing for my sites. The name of he entity is Six Degrees of Ohio. I own the domain SixDegreesOfOhio.com. so:

instance: social.SixDegreesOfOhio.com

instance: podcast.SixDegreesOfOhio.com

Now, waiting for that hardware. Supposed to be here Friday.

I am really conflicted about using #AI to generate artwork for a website for my radio show.

My radio show really benefits everyone involved except me. It's like a service for the artists I play, and their fans.

That being said, I have been in this space for the past 25 years or so, and the thought of spending $600 for a logo on something i will never recoup on doesn't sound like a good idea.

So far, i haven't done it yet, but boy do i get tempted.

Still trying to decide if it's worth worrying about importing my toots into an account on a new server, or just letting it go

#mastodon #ServerMigration

@sergio_101@mastodon.social avatar

@smalldog

i REALLY want to preserve because it looks like alot of people find my old posts using hashtag searches, and fire up really interesting conversations about things I mentioned ages ago.

I need to see if the migration process allows users to brings toots over. if so, i'm in.

Thinking about how to handle the audio of my radio show on my new instance.

The show runs every saturday on FM radio, but in the end, i have a pile of audio files to host. They come out weekly, so it's pretty much a podcast.

Should create in instance of or ?

Need to come up with a domain for my upcoming (on friday) #mastodon instance.

It is going to be a vehicle to promote a radio show I host every Saturday night. My show centers around independent music from the north central #Ohio area.

My hope is to attract users interested in submitting music to the show, trading gig among themselves, and promoting local gigs.

Any ideas?

The show is called "Six Degrees of Ohio"

@sergio_101@mastodon.social avatar

@Uair

This is funny, as I got the name from "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon'.. Where, after spending a bunch of years in the ohio music scene, everyone is n degrees separated. In reality, n -> 1 .

As long as the weather cooperates, I’ll be pulling my kids out of school next Monday to drive east into the path of totality during the solar eclipse.

Do you have #eclipse plans?

sergio_101,
@sergio_101@mastodon.social avatar

@Sheril It is a super hot topic here in Ohio. Totality passes over my house!

There are LOTS of naysayers in the crowd, though. During a meeting yesterday, someone mentioned that the weather was going to be bad, so they are moving it south a few miles. I thought that was the greatest thing i've yet heard.

I am taking the day off, and tyring to get a pass to get to the top of the library of our local university.
