There is a serious possibility that our team will need to deploy into prod on a Friday because of a regulatory deadline and 3rd parties not being ready.
God help us
I guess it has to be keybase. Keybase chat is now my go-to web based chat.
Using NaCl keys makes life so much easier but you have the choice of using PGP if you need to for encrypting files/text.
Make sure you can RECOVER from your backups.
It's all well and good backing this and that up, but make sure that when the shit really hits the fan you can recover.
I've now 4 days into recovering a raspberry pi that ran:
And serveral other things... I've learnt my lesson4
Managed to make myself look like a fucking moron again today...
Can't mount NFS share, get "permission denied". Huh, that's weird... It's correctly exported.
Well it's correctly exported and rpcinfo -p $HOST times out... Must be firewall rule.
Firewall rule is changed but still no joy "permission denied"... Fuck sake networks, can't you do anything right first time?!!!
Firewall rule is correct I am reliably informed... Go about proving that it's not fucking correct and provide "evidence" to show this, I was a little bit more blunt than was strictly required.
Networks say they will take another look.
I turn NFS logging to verbose for my own interest and notice the line "path/to/directory is not a valid directory".
I, as a moron, had missed a "/" at the start of the path. That's why I still couldn't mount after the firewall change.
Go over and apologise in person and explain how I'm a total idiot.
Ok I give up. I concede. I can't take one more second of trying to get ANY window manager to run under Arch with an Nvidia GPU.
Back to Debian it is...20
I have an irrational fear that I'll be sacked when I come back from a holiday.
I came back from my holiday this morning and within seconds of sitting down I was asked to not login because "we needed a quick chat"... Great start to the week....
(Wasn't sacked btw)1
Ok... I am defeated I don't know what else to try...
Do you guys have any experience with ansible vault? I have my SSH password stored on a vault. It's referenced in my host file like this:
myhost ansible_user=my username
default_pass is stored as a yaml variable in passed.yml that I supply using --extra-vars '@passwd.yml'
When I enter my vault password I get an exception 'non hexadecimal digit found'.
The password is right for the vault, the vault file is in PWD .... I cannot find anything helpful.
Ansible... Why do one simple task manually, when you can do many smaller more complex ones automatically?
Ok... So I've just received 2 lots of 2u Dell PowerEdge 2950s , 6x2TB WD Greens, 6x assorted Seagate drives (misc size) .
Totally. Fucking. Free.
A friend at work use to self host, and doesn't need them anymore , I offered to buy but he wouldn't have it! Friends are the best!6
I stumbled across a game called where you have to control a robot using 8086 assembler. The site looks under construction but it looks interesting!
You can check it out here: https://muchassemblyrequired.com/ga...5
We had a guy come over to talk us through some source code we'd bought and we binded over vim colour schemes. So magical
this.rant == "long";
This is something I feel strongly about, I hope you do too...
I fucking hate it when I hear that people don't care about net neutrality (and I've heard people say it). There is little in this world untouched by shitty corporations encroaching on the little good that is left in this world.
Yes the internet is full of edgy teenagers, incompetent Seniors (both old people and Devs) and god knows what else. But you know what? I pay my money to copy and paste code from SO (we ALL do let's not lie to ourselves) and I'm not paying a special fee to look at this content or that or send this type of text to that kind of person.
Now then to the point... On 14th December 2017 the FCC will vote on whether or not to allow companies like Verizon and - dare I say it - Comcast to charge more to access certain sites or block you access altogether and otherwise control what you say and do.
I for one, say FUCK OFF and I hope you do to. If you can, call or otherwise contact your Congressperson - you can do that here: https://house.gov/representatives/... . If you're not from the US, you can still help! https://www.battleforthenet.com has lots of information on what you can do to help.
I hope you'll all join me in shouting as loud as we can and preventing this moronic idea from going through.
To all my ASMR dudes out here, there is officially C themed ASMR!
How d'yall live without a boss who is an incredibly experienced developer?!
To those who have a corporate dickhead as a boss, you all have my sympathy
To the Devs at OnePlus,
Who ever wrote the code that lets me swap the 'back' and 'show recent apps' buttons so they're like my old phone.... You're a fucking god1
I love Unix, Linux all that shit (macOS can fuck off though). But why WHY WHY does every pissing update have to break something?! Guys I need fucking networking, not even intertubes just basic networking.
Anyway, I've come up with a solution. It is quicker for me to install a new OS and restore files from backup than to fix it, so that's what I do.11
I stumbled across this code golf the other day, I thought I had seen all of the esoteric languages... Then I saw Minecraft...
