I’m Tom, a computer network nerd living in Chicago. I cooked up this website in 2020 as an effort to fight pandemic boredom by spending more time writing about the following:

  • Homelabs where I write up some of the things I like on my way-too-overcomplicated home network. Target audience of other network nerds like myself.
  • Ham Radio where I share some experiences that illustrate why this hobby is a perfect fit for anyone interested in technology. Target audience of everyone.
  • Everything Else where you’ll find anything that isn’t homelab or ham radio.

I’ve been motivated to build this space thanks to the amazing content produced by other self-publishing technologists at PacketPushers.net, Duffney.io, network-node.com, voidrealms.com, gns3vault.com and many others not listed here.

Lastly (and perhaps most importantly), all content on this website is strictly the views & opinions of myself, and not that of any organization I am currently affiliated with or have been in the past. If you like what you see, please let the whole world see it here in the comments! If you don’t like something, even better! Tell me what’s grinding your gears either in the comments or contact me via the resources in the about page, would love to hear differing viewpoints about this stuff.

    1. Hi Frank! I don’t think I’ll be doing anything with ProxMox because I don’t have room in the condo for any additional desktop/server hardware 🙁 But I think the Eve-ng cookbook will get you most of the way there. Good luck and happy homelabbing!
