The obligatory blog

In 2019 I made a mistake - I decided to rebuild my home lab. My home lab isn’t the biggest or fanciest lab out there, but it has just enough idiosyncracies, and life has caught up to me enough, that the rebuild process turned into a saga of its own. This wouldn’t have been the first time a rebuild turned into an RPG-level quest, but this time was different - this time I took notes. These are those notes.


I’m just some guy. I’ve been doing Infosec since the first .com boom, which just means I’ve watched my 401k get nuked 3 times (as of this writing…could be more by the time you read this).
