Drobo files for bankruptcy. What a shame. I remember in college finding out about Drobo and thinking I would buy one someday. Never got to do it. Synology seems a smarter bet these days, and my needs are pretty well met with a few external drives and ZFS replication.

The issue was docker-related and I spent an embarrassingly long time trying to restore the broken db afterwards. No luck.

Good news is I’ve now got automated nightly backups running and it was my own personal instance…so the only person losing data was me.

Time for an , I suppose.

I work as a product manager in the finance space, building cool ways to send and receive money.

I love the outdoors, and get my exercise through road cycling and hiking mainly.

My mastodon instance is self-hosted, and I devote a lot of my time to learning and hosting other services.

I’m a cat dad. A beer lover. Motorcycles are cool.
