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]

Monday yaleman/fail2ban-importer Rewrote it so I could be sure it might work. More complex, but also simpler.. woo? Tuesday yaleman/github_linter Added a new fix in the github_actions module, adding dependency checking based on the new github action. Wednesday yaleman/github_linter Updated the fix from Tuesday in the github_actions module, removing dependency checking based on the new github action for private repos.

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]

Week in Review 2022-04-03

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]

Recursion Is Fun Is Fun

So I’ve got an AWS Lambda function written in python designed to help auto-merge PRs that @dependabot has submitted. It queries all my github repositories, then auto-merges them based on particular configs. It’s done this way because then I don’t have to remember to configure each and every repository individually, and it does it in two stages: A scheduled execution. This checks to see if it’s scheduled, then invokes the function with parameters specifying the repo to check. [Read More]

Monday Global Rest Day! Assembling all the furniture things. Tuesday Hung out at the Mailroom and set up the internet, they nearly had to break down the little door in the wall where the infrastructure cable was hidden. Thankfully it all went well, and the speed’s good. Later in the night I blocked myself from remote access to the router, awks. As the site-to-site VPN between sites still worked, I got back in through an SSH tunnel via an Access Point, which directed traffic to the router on port 22 from “inside” :success:. [Read More]

2022-03-06 Week in Review

OK, I have to mention it. Fucking Russia. Seriously? Invading Ukraine? Get fucked. You insane pack of fucking morons. I don’t blame the boots on the ground - the’re clearly being treated like mushrooms. 🇺🇦 > 🇷🇺. I only hope as many people as possible get out of this alive. Wednesday I’ve been poking around at this idea in my head for a while, so I started yaleman/memes-api - basically shove images in an S3 bucket and it’ll make a little memes-library. [Read More]
