Quick post to write up how I built a retractable green screen mount on my wall for not much money. I bought a mounting bracket from Amazon that was intended for paper photograph backrounds like this. I didn’t want paper, I wanted muslin for it’s superior light disbursement and durability. I already had a 9’ by 15’ muslin green screen backdrop similar to this one. When the mounting bracket arrived, it said to use a metal rod with a 2” (two inch) inner diameter.

Lately I’ve been on a mission to separate my development environments by project, and by category (personal/work/Gophercon/etc). The writeup on the Gopheracademy blog describes a fun way to create an isolated container-based environment for each project by using LXD on Ubuntu. Last night I wondered to myself if there was a way to get a similar experience by manipulating Windows Subsystem for Linux somehow. That was a rabbit hole of searching, let me tell ya true.
