Mi Scusi Day 1 - Flying to Darwin

Today we started the journey, flying to Darwin on QANTAS in business class. Woo. Business class is pretty nice, with better food, more room for my wide hips and more leg room - which is nice when you’re a freakishly tall person like I am. Indian-style Chicken Dish, with a double serve of chocolate and snackage. Darwin Airport, welcoming as fk. It’s very clear that folks are being watched while moving around the city, with cameras on every light pole and I’m pretty sure running a surveillance company is a winning ticket in this place.

This week’s been busy, lots of leaving the house. :) Monday kanidm Whoa, I was made a member/owner of the kanidm organisation today. That’s a fair bit of responsibility, and it’s great to have that trust. Kanidm! I did a rolling comp at the range, as part of the many shoots this month to keep my licensing up. I shot good, which isn’t hard when you’re shooting at paper. I started a new range-game to try and concentrate on my hand-eye coordination and slow down between rounds. [Read More]

Monday M1 macbook things - THE FAN TURNED ON. It was weird. Thanks, rust. <3 ADHD Side Quest Chain This one was quite the adventure, so I figured I’d write it down. “The fan under the stairs is ticking” Pull fan out. Ew, that’s real dusty. Pull out vacuum to suck up dust. Oh the extension lead’s stuck, pull that out from under the mat. I need to pee! Do that. [Read More]

Monday threegoldbees.com Redeployed the site, for the first time in a long time because images were missing and it was generally just not playing nice.

Updated the terraform module configuration to AWS’ v4 module syntax. Delicious yak milk. yaleman/sprintf added automagic testing from github_linter. actually fixed up the testing, re-fixed it, after breaking it again. [Read More]

Cloudflare and the Billion Requests

The Email March 2022 Analytics Snapshot We’ve aggregated data from 26 of your Cloudflare sites during the month of March. Cloudflare served 788.57 GB of data, and mitigated 2.04k firewall events. I was like “wow, that’s a lot more data than usu… wait, over a ┬┐BILLION REQUESTS FROM JAPAN!?!?!? For comparison, February 2022’s stats had 183.7 GB of data and 214 million requests from Japan. Ok, that’s still a load of requests, but 4x as much is weird. [Read More]

Tuesday kanidm Fixed an issue with kanidm group list that wasn’t logging because I’d used info!() instead of println!(). Wednesday Realised (after it was pointed out to me by GitHub support) I was super stupid and had set the wrong “uses” string on my actions defintion, and that’s why they were all queuing and being weird. Once I got that working… I continued to be stupid and break things until I just copied the config from something else and it was much less broken. [Read More]
