Looking forward to adding a 4-node RPi CM4 cluster to the homelab next year!

This thing looks like it hits the sweet spot between redundancy and price.

@bryanl Look at the "wake" of the person. Under Qualified / Under Prepared (even if well intentioned) leaves behind a wake of confused actions and bad decisions. People with imposter syndrome feel under qualified, but leave behind a wake of successes over time*.

These seeds are easily saved in:
- text file (encrypt with GPG)
- password manager (not full 2FA, but better than a password alone)

DLT one (Damn Linux Tablet) - keeping an eye on this modular Linux tablet project on Hackaday

hackaday.io/project/164845-dlt

Two system-on-module (SoM) are being evaluated, ideally both will be supported. One has a similar SoC to the Purism Librem 5, the other is a Jetson Nano.

How cool would it be to have a modular tablet chassis, similar to the 24 year-old ATX standard for PCs?
