  • Container can’t see my files!

    Container can’t see my files!

    Containers are sort of virtual machines, a computer running on a computer. They don’t have access to your actual files, just to what’s available inside their filesystem. In Windows, you mount a USB drive, a disk, or a network location with a drive letter e.g D,E,F. In Linux the system doesn’t begin with a letter,…

  • Invincible – You Can Only Read Once

    Invincible – You Can Only Read Once

    But you should read it. It’s an incredible comic, a masterwork, an example of how comics should be made. At least up until about chapter 110. I wrote this as I read through the chapters. I also used the powers of time travel and hindsight to edit this post, so it’s a bit of a…

  • Comic Scripts

    Comic Scripts

    If you’ve read my blog at all, you know I like comics. Mylar is incredible for managing and automatically metatagging comics. It uses ComicTagger which is great for metagging outside Mylar too, but we still need to use the darn ComicVine API with their absolutely insane rate limits. I’ve made a bunch of scripts to…

    Stuff I use

    I really like it when people make lists of their tools, containers, whatever they generally use day to day. I had no idea TubeArchivist existed until I saw it on awesome-selfhosted. I was talking to one of my best buds about browser extensions, and there were some I had that would be quite useful to…

    I love Invincible, it’s one of the best comics I’ve ever read. Read it or watch the series, there’s very few changes anyway. Do it now, read the rest of this post later. This contains heavy spoilers from the Invincible comics. This is the only time you’re being warned. What is it with us that…

  • Call of Duty 3

    Call of Duty 3

    RPCS3 Emulation has come a long way. Almost every single PS3 game is playable, meaning you can fully finish it without any game breaking bugs. There’s also plenty of upscaling so games can look better than ever. There’s locally tracked trophies, keyboard and mouse compatibility, out of the box compatible with mostly any controller you…

  • Call of Duty

    Call of Duty

    A bit of background I love playing games on max difficulty. It feels like that’s the way the game was intended to be experienced, and at the end of the game I feel much more satisfied on a harder difficulty, and learn a lot more. A great example is the Arkham series. When I started…

  • Volumes and Bind Mounts

    Volumes and Bind Mounts

    Volumes are paths on the host mounted inside the container, allowing for persistent storage. Removing a container does not remove the files in the volume, as they are only mounted to the container upon its startup. There are three types of volumes: All volumes are technically mounts, the difference is that volumes are managed by…
