It’s been over 10 months since my last blog post on here, and I decided it was high time for a fresh look at the site. Not to mention I’m on lockdown because of COVID-19. It seemed like as good a time as any to do some spring cleaning both in real life, and online.
Kubernetes has ostensibly become the defacto leader in the container orchestration world. If you want to run a bunch of containers across multiple nodes in a cluster, k8s is the way to go.

v0.44 so I figured I’d just try the new version and see what happens! Will my custom theme make it?
Here’s how I fixed them!
I keep my personal nodes in a bunch of Markdown files inside a Dropbox folder. I’ve used just about every note-taking app there is and ended up settling on this system. It’s served me really well so far.
I have one note at the top level called
scratch.md that I use for quickly writing things down when I’m in a hurry. I decided to speed this up even more with this little shell alias:
