As I mentioned in my previous post, I ran into what I believe are some GPU issues with my Dell 7510. So, like any self-respecting nerd (is that an oxymoron?), I ordered a replacement part from parts-people.com and got to work. Prep Work As with most things these days, you can almost always find some… Continue reading A little maintenance task
Since cycling my cluster nodes is a “fire script and wait” operation, I kicked one off today. I ended up running into an issue that required me to dig a bit into ETCD in RKE2, and could not find direct help, so this is as much my own reference as it is a guide for… Continue reading Tech Tip – Interacting with ETCD in Rancher Kubernetes Engine 2

My GitOps Setup I have a few repositories that I… Continue reading Tech Tip – You should probably lock that up…
As I was upgrading WordPress from 6.2.2 to 6.3.0, I ran into a spot of trouble. Thankfully, ArgoCD rollback was there to save me. It’s a minor upgrade… I use the Bitnami WordPress chart as the template source for Argo to deploy my blog to one of my Kubernetes clusters. Usually, an upgrade is literally… Continue reading Rollback saved my blog!
