The (much needed) back burner

Some technology projects really test my patience and stamina. Either they’re too advanced for me, or they use badly-documented technology that’s hard to work with. There is sometimes an upside to this frustration: it’s good for me to try things that are difficult or at the limits of my skill set.

But it’s also nice have an easier project on another burner, to turn to when things get too frustrating.

Lately, I’ve been really annoyed with Google Cloud Platform. Almost furious, at times. I frequently need to walk away and decompress. So to take a break, I started setting up a Raspberry Pi to store backups on my home network. The stakes are lower; the problems are easier (for now). It’s nice to step away from the frustrating stuff, at least for a bit.
