Setting up k3s on a single RPi4

Testing out the ability to run some containers on RPi4 and I have a single borrowed device. Most of the tutorials out there describe a multi-node configuration and that’s led to some challenges for me to understand this. First, I started with this tutorial: https://github.com/mhausenblas/kube-rpi This gets you there most of the way, but I […]

The RPi Zero W is…ok…

First of all, I have not returned to using the Chromecast for my Grafana visualization. I didn’t elaborate on this, but my previous post was driven by a change to Grafana visualization that effectively broke the ChromeCast Kiosk server I was using.

Grandstream GXV3610 disassembled

In the interest of completeness I’m posting my pictures here to show what the inside of the GXV3610 looks like. I couldn’t find this anywhere else, so here it is: My goal was to remove the cable from the backside of the ball and run it through the small hole I had already drilled through […]

Logitech 700e security camera disassembly

My 700e security camera failed after a couple years of use.  I got a Grandstream replacement, which I’ll also post about, so I figured it would be good to take the 700e apart and see if I could figure out what went wrong.  Figure it out I did.  And since there’s a lack of documentation […]
