@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroBut the whole "get fiber" is a bit confusing. Are you replacing ethernet with MM fiber? 16:30:38
@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroWhat does mikrotik has to do with you "getting fiber"? 16:30:57
@jeffmca:matrix.orgjeffmcaRegardless of whatever else, i'd suggest single mode rather than multi mode16:31:50
@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroMM is way cheaper. Why would you buy SM for your place? Unless you have several acres because SM is rated for 10Km and MM for 500m16:33:06
@jeffmca:matrix.orgjeffmcaThe price difference is minimal anymore. And SM just gives you more options and upgradability.16:34:05
@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroProbably. A couple of years ago bought some ubnt MM SFP modules at 10 bucks, but if you buy the splicer you probably will have a harder time finding MM. Besides that the switch won't care if you use MM or SM 16:38:02
@jeffmca:matrix.orgjeffmcaThe general wisdom is stay away from vendor branded optics. There's basically zero benefit to them and they're a lot more expensive, and they particularly jump the price for SM. In 3rd party optics world, the price premium is non-zero, but also not large.16:40:46
@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroWell, yes. I meant that ubiquity is more of a consumer grade cheap. Then you buy some jumpers of the length you desire. But if you are doing some wiring you probably will need a splicer to patch. 16:42:44
@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroMikrotik is my experience is good value. But you probably can find something cheaper.16:43:39
@jeffmca:matrix.orgjeffmcaYeah, fair enough.16:44:10
@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroNow there is some GPON used for wan, not sure how they play with this kind of equipment. 16:45:03
@jeffmca:matrix.orgjeffmcaGPON is a whole different beast with different equipment. Same type of fiber, tho16:48:24
@ifiguero:matrix.orgifigueroYeah I figured. Something to keep in mind if he think he can just plug the fiber that comes from the provider into his switch. 17:04:45

@rails11326206827:matrix.orgTremorHey guys. I have a small issue with my backups. I'm doing a backup of my media, but I have most of it hard linked to a more structured hierarchy in another location on disk while the source files are there for archive purposes. When making a backup with rclone, it copies the same file "twice" because of the hardlink, causing double the storage usage. What's the best way to mitigate this? Do I need to switch to softlinks?19:43:30

have you looked at -H switch?

@oscar:prutt.partyOscarhello12:36:55
@ttd:matrix.orgKarlis Zemitisomg, sorry wrong chat. 😄 Have a room called Homelab and testing n8n automations 😄12:38:11
@oscar:prutt.partyOscartime to use the internal room id =)12:38:57
@ttd:matrix.orgKarlis Zemitisnaa, just nuked and renamed 🙂12:39:26
@oscar:prutt.partyOscar you really want to use internal room ids in automations, though 12:39:45
@ttd:matrix.orgKarlis ZemitisIt uses IDs at the back end. I can just select from a list of names. 12:55:51

@hashborgir:mozilla.org🍄 HB 🌿 Guys, hi, I just moved to #self-hosting:matrix.org on Matrtix. If you're into that, please join and discuss self hosting stuff. 🙂 I mean more than the homelab stuff. 22:31:43
