I've just set some goals I want to achieve within the next 1234 days.

For example:
- write a book
- start a podcast
- start a business
- get fit (again) + eat healthy
- blog + guides + forum

I am nervous and excited at the same time.

It is done. was amazing and I still can't believe we did it. Months of planning, many schedules, much support, some speedbumps, but it all worked out well. I have proven my ability to manage a bunch of Type-As and I couldn't be happier. Really it was the speakers and more importantly the attendees who did it for us. We hit 200, but it could have easily been closer to 300. Next year we can and will do better. So proud of everyone involved.

I would appreciate recommendations for VPS provider. Just for small projects for now.

It is time to hit the gym again. I got way to fat.

My new fan just arrived and I love it already. It is quiet and does a great job (Thanks to @jerry again for the recommendation).

I had to do some modifications to the case and the connection and it doesn't look professional in any way, but it works (so far).

Hofstadter's Law states that "It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law."

Hey @jerry how are you doing? The noctua fan just arrived and before I try to do it myself (and destroy it) I wanted to ask you, how did you connect the fan to your Pi4? Have you made your own 3 to 2 pin adapter?

Holy what!

I've been playing a game with my Raspberry Pi 4 all day. Who is going to overheat first, me or the Raspberry?

Side note: I've installed the fan on the outside on purpose so the installed heat sink can stay on the CPU.
