I am excited to share that I have officially joined the TrueCharts project as a core team member. TrueCharts is a community-driven project that is focused on developing Helm charts and Scale apps for TrueNAS Scale, a popular operating system for network-attached storage. As a member of the core team, I will be working on the incubator train of the project.

The TrueCharts project is dedicated to creating high-quality, production-ready Helm charts and Scale apps that can be used by anyone.

The incubator train is a part of the TrueCharts project that is focused on developing and testing new Helm charts. These charts are not yet considered stable and are subject to change, but they are a great way to test out new applications and provide feedback to the community.

As a core team member, I will be working closely with other developers to build new Scale apps, test and improve existing ones, and provide support to the community. I am excited to be a part of this project because it is an opportunity to contribute to the open-source community, learn new skills, and work with a great group of people.

One of the things that I appreciate about the TrueCharts project is its focus on quality. The team is dedicated to creating high-quality, well-documented Helm charts that are easy to use. They also provide support through our Discord server, where users can ask questions and get help with any issues they may be having.

I am looking forward to continue working on the incubator train and contributing to the TrueCharts project. If you are interested in learning more about the project or want to get involved, I encourage you to check out our website and join our Discord server. It is a great way to get involved in the open-source community and contribute to a project that is making a real difference.

As a member of the gaming community, I am always looking for ways to help improve the quality and stability of online game servers. One way that I have found to be particularly effective is by testing and evaluating game servers and the software that powers them in a self-hosted environment.

The platform we are using for these tests is TrueNAS Scale powered by a community catalog TrueCharts, which has a wide range of game servers available for testing and evaluation. However, there is one major obstacle that we have encountered in our efforts to do this: many of these game servers require a significant amount of money in order to be properly tested and evaluated. This includes the cost of purchasing the games that will be hosted on the servers, as well as any additional software or hardware that may be needed to set up in our self-hosted environment.

This can be a real problem for those of us who are passionate about gaming and want to contribute to the development of stable and reliable game servers, but don't have the financial resources to cover these costs. That's why we are reaching out to ask for your help in raising the funds needed to test and evaluate these game servers and the software that powers them using TrueNAS Scale and TrueCharts as the backbone for the game servers they offer.

Any donations that you can provide will be greatly appreciated and will go a long way towards helping the gaming community create and maintain high-quality game servers that provide a great experience for all players.

So if you believe in the importance of stable and reliable game servers, and want to help ensure that they are available to all, please consider making a donation to support the testing and evaluation of these game servers and the software that powers them in a self-hosted environment using TrueNAS Scale and TrueCharts as the community catalog. Together, we can make a real difference and help bring the best gaming experience to all players.

You can donate directly to Truecharts for the awesome community platform they are and join on the fun to test and evaluate the game servers they offer in the incubator and stable trains.

I am actively working on making the game servers and pushing them to stable with the help of the Truecharts community, so if you like my work and want to see your game server in the stable train, i would not mine getting some coffee for my time too :).

Overall, I am thrilled to be returning to creating and streaming on social media, and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

As a result, I will be shifting my focus to creating content related to IT and HomeLab building. While I am excited about this change and the new opportunities it presents, I also recognize that it may be a bit of a transition for my audience. I want to assure my community that I am still committed to providing high-quality content and engaging with them, even though the subject matter may be different. I am looking forward to exploring this new area and sharing my knowledge and experiences with my audience.
