Ok. Clearly using the drobo as file server for the docker cluster was a mistake. It just spontaneously stopped responding, killing everything depending on it. Had to power cycle it and it still took ten minutes to bring everything back up. Neat.

@randomgeek ‪I can’t recommend every episode individually, but there are several that hit me pretty hard. Enough that I’d recommend watching it all.‬

The pens use quadruple-A batteries. I can’t get one of them open. ::(
