The final video of Start Page 2.0 project was uploaded on Monday. It didn't take very long at all to get it installed on my Unraid server. I was actually hoping to host the docker image locally, but it was much easier to upload it to Dockerhub …

This week I uploaded the second video to the "Start Page 2.0" project. I feel a little better about it, but I honestly think I'm incredibly boring to watch. I'm hoping over time I loosen up a bit and show the person my family sees every day …
