Updating The Raspberry Pi Cluster

U

Hullo MicroK8s! Awhile back the Raspberry Pi cluster was born. At the time, the best thing to run seemed to be Rancher Labs K3s. But soon after I installed K3s, Rancher released a new version and with this new version a lot of things changed, and what I had installed was deprecated. I could no longer update packages. Argh! So …. I recently reinstalled the entire cluster using MicroK8s. I...

Now we are going to deploy some pods and a service. The first thing we are going to do is deploy 12 NGINX servers across our cluster. We do this with a manifest file that we deploy on the master node. Manifest: Specification of a...

Raspberry Pi Cluster running K3s – Part I

Let’s build a cluster and run Kubernetes! Part I – Building The Cluster & Installing Kubernetes I was doing some cybersecurity research on YouTube one day when I came across a somewhat related video where a guy built an 8 node Raspberry Pi cluster and got it to run Kubernetes, or K8s as it’s widely know. Well actually this is running K3s, which is basically K8s. I was hooked...

You start by setting up the Wio Terminal software, then you update the Wireless Core RTL8720 firmware and install all related libraries. python3 ambd_flash_tool.py erase python3 ambd_flash_tool.py...

One of my team mates at work started a project group for within my team to experiment with a Clue. This thing is so cool! The idea is to try project together as a group. So far there are 5 of us and I imagine it will grow even larger as word spreads. My Clue arrived today, along with a Wio Terminal which I plan to try several projects with as well. I’ll post updates as they come, including...

Odyssey Blacked Out

O

Just to see how it would look, (and an attempt to make a lame and practical van look cool) I decided to black out my minivan. This van is eventually going to my 18 year old as soon as she has her Driver’s license, which we are waiting on the DMV for, thanks to the lock down. It turned out okay. I did all the work at my parent’s house in the Bay Area. All the badges (removed the...
