Hi I'm Anthony. I'm a freelance Houdini / FX artist near Chicago. Big Linux and self-hosting advocate. Check out my work at

It’s time... for another server. I need another one to compliment my r720 on the rack. So many possibilities.

Listen to Bush? Hmmm. No thanks. The world has gone insane.

3 hours to renew a driver’s license is just dumb. Take phone numbers at the door and call them when they are a few spots away , or take a ticket like in a deli and have a big board. Probably a hundred better ways to do this. But by all means let’s trust the system to take care of us...

Anyway, how is your day going?

Thinking about moving my site's videos to an S3 type object storage. Anyone server video from S3 to a wordpress site? I'm wondering how the performance is and if there are any current players available. Seems there are a few but maybe outdated?

Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?

The population that is least affected by Covid is taking the brunt of the lock-downs. And boy is it affecting them and their future.

I just heard my first frog of the season. A lovely sound after a hard winter.

My favorite video for PDG / TOPs in Houdini:

Lot's of good info and I always lose the link so here it is for my future self.

Support this brilliant human:

Podman 3.0 now supports Docker-Compose. Really neat and may finally get me off of Docker. I'm a little late on this one but looks really cool.

My clients have asked what I use for file transfer, since it's not Dropbox. I use and love Seafile for all my transfers. Flexible, fast, and reliable. Plus the file auditing is handy for security.

What in the open internet!? Just opened a link from Reddit that took me to CBS news. The site asked if I wanted to read it on the CBS news app or Chrome... like most crappy news sites do on mobile. But on my desktop... Is this a new thing? Gotta add CBS news to my blocklist.

"But McBean was quite wrong. I’m quite happy to say.
That the Sneetches got really quite smart on that day.
The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches.
And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.
That day, all the Sneetches forgot about stars and whether
They had one, or not, upon thars."
