    Delay container startup via Docker Compose?

    I'm looking for a simple way to delay or "sleep" a container for a given amount of time via docker compose. All the solutions I've read about wait-for-it/dockerize seem overly convoluted with heathchecks, etc. I just want to delay a container a given number of seconds. Is this not possible...

    Looking for someone with pfSense to Mikrotik (RouterOS) link aggregation experience

    I'm having a hell of a time trying to get traffic to pass over an LACP (though I've tried other bond methods as well) bond I've setup between pfsense and my new Mikrotik CRS354-48G-4S+2Q+RM switch. If I just do a single non LAGG link between pfsense and the switch I can passed tagged VLANs...

    CRS354-48P-4S+2Q+RM Fan Mod?

    I'm wondering if anyone has done a fan mod on this switch. From the STH video review it appears this switch is quite loud and I work about 10 feet away from where this switch would be located if I was to purchase it. However, I only need POE on about 4-6 ports (for now, in the future if I move...

    ASROCK EPYCD8 - BMC Has No Dedicated Option?

    In the BIOS for my EPYCD8 I only see that the BMC is set to Failover and there is no way to change that (it's greyed out and not configurable). Is this indended? I prefer to use dedicated for my IPMI interfaces and not failover.
