Terraform, Kubernetes and Github Container Registry Oh My

After much muttering and searching and and then some help from the lovely people on the rands slack, I ended up with a snippet for authenticating my kubernetes cluster to the Github Container Registry using terraform configuration. tl;dr: create a dockerconfigjson-type secret and use it in the image_pull_secrets field Create a secret with the authentication details: resource "kubernetes_secret" "ghcr_auth" { metadata { name = "ghcr-auth" } type = "kubernetes.io/dockerconfigjson" data = { ".

Week in Review 2022-05-29

This week’s been pretty slow, still catching up on work and reading and software updates and dying laptop after my holiday. Woo. Monday Went splat. Started blogging the Ghan trip. Went food shopping. Ugh, did I mention splat. Such tired. Tuesday Great quote. pro·duc·tion| prəˈdəkSH(ə)n | noun A test harness that escaped CI clusters Watched Better Living through Chemistry.

Mi Scusi Day 2 - Darwin City

Friday the 13th, WooOoOoooo. Slept in a bit - we flew in a day early in case there were flight cancellations - thanks, COVID. I went out looking for some breakfast, and by 9am it was already ~30º outside. After toddling around for a while, marvelling at the number of massage parlors and bars promoting their Defence-Force discount, I found a lovely bacon, egg and avocado roll at Monica’s Café - a nice family-run establishment directly across the road from the hotel.

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.

Week in Review 2022-05-08

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.

Week in Review 2022-04-24

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. I removed all the <center></center> HTML randomness, which made Hugo happier. I wish there was a blog engine which was more human and less Wordpress. 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]
