A follow up to the dumpster-diving antics presented in the Home Lab 2019 edition! A lot has changed in the Home Lab space in the past two years. Chip shortages, supply line interruptions, storage hoarding, as well as increased popularity in Home labs have made finding great deals on under-valued hardware more difficult than it has been historically. Don't even mention trying to find a GPU for a password cracking lab (actually do mention it, we can still get them). This just means we work harder and dig deeper in the dumpster of used hardware to find the deals! We're going to hit the main pillars for Home Labs (Compute, networking, and storage) and update the best bang for the buck items as well as give upgrade paths to those that have already started their homelab journey. We're also going to discuss some ultra low-power / low-noise options for our friends just getting started or those looking to keep it quiet and simple. This year we're going to focus a bit more on the actual use / functions of homelab as well and dipping a bit into homeprod. Some projects / systems can be set up to make you (and your co-habitants) lives easier, safer, and more enjoyable. After all, keeping the co-habitants happy is sometimes the key to getting more homelab gear! Whether this is the first foray into homelabbing, or you are a seasoned veteran; there will be something for everyone (not to mention some laughs at my expense over some of my more 'out-there' ideas that just didn't quite pan out).
