Done my first Splunk PS now; I'm officially a consultant!
I'm also certified as Professional (above Associate) with both Terraform and Vault now!
I finished the Linux Upskill Challenge! An excellent course. I highly recommend it. As I write this, it's being offered each month, for free, beginning on the first Monday of the month, IIRC. Check out reddit for details.
My Vault HA cluster is up and running: I've then got Grafana running on my main workstation, with a few different dashboards, monitoring Consul, Vault, telemetry from my old laptops themselves, Jitsi, my broadband, etc.
I'm running Jitsi Meet on my Xubuntu server as well. Let me know if you'd like to use it for video conferencing!

I might revive Cockpit. But I'll probably try to get Splunk to serve my monitoring needs, along with Grafana: then it's CPD too.
Multipass is still in the mix, but falling by the wayside. I've picked up Docker now, because docker-splunk is just so simple and powerful. It's jumped my troubleshooting game an order of magnitude!
I'm looking at docker-vault now too, for an upcoming demo.
Oh, and docker-splunk has killed my desire to run any sort of Splunk cluster natively; I've got an All-In-One instance on the LAN, and that's enough, for playing. The Consul Engineering Team have released an official Grafana dashboard, backed by Prometheus. I want to translate this to one backed by InfluxDB; an engineer suggested that translating PromQL to IFQL is fairly straightforward.
I want to start monitoring the expiry dates of all the certificates I'm using in my environment.
Also re Consul, I want to get ACLs working in a professional manner: Also re CPD, I'm considering going for Consul Associate. I'll hold off for a bit, though, as HashiCorp is in the middle of switching exam proctors, as I understand it.

Aaron dead.
World wanderers, we have lost a wise elder.
Hackers for right, we are one down.
Parents all, we have lost a child.
Let us weep.
