I now have my first database up and running (Influxdb). Yesterday, I set up Grafana to plot some of the data in my database. After having trouble with the connection, I eventually had a handful of nice graphs. I’m looking forward to the possibilities for my home dashboard.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
