Blog if you can. Answer your own posts/emails if you find the solution. Writing about what you're doing will help other and probably yourself.

Not easy to track down
@dvl Different requirements, but we need to find or build a really tiny OAuth server. That way, it can be integrated into projects that already run their own authentication, like Mastodon servers, and those accounts can then be used to authenticate in place of big monolithic systems like Google and Facebook.
I know, I know, social media sites shouldn't be the centre of your identity on the 'net, and it's centralising too much power, but the average person needs access to OAuth w/o self-hosting.
This is..... concerning. It has the potential to effect people beyond the borders of the United States, and I have a hard time thinking that impact will be a net positive.

Sometimes I forget about TLS / SSL / x509 certificates have both server and & versions. For me, that applies mostly to private CAs. I use the security/ssl-admin port for that.
Yeah, don't use a server cert when a client cert is called for:
Oh, a vuln package to upgrade.
pkg upgrade foo
Oh, what other hosts have this installed.
I have an SQL query for that.
samdrucker=# select hostswithpackage('py36-urllib3');
First task today: upgrade a server
I like to arrive about 15 minutes before the maintenance window. That gives me time to log into all the services I will need, get the ticket in front of me, open the upgrade instructions, mount the images, etc.
And tweet about it.
I have convinced myself that I have room to add a 2U battery expansion pack for my UPS. I would remove one unused server and move another up. Perhaps 2 hours of work.
I have further convinced myself that tripling my runtime on batteries isn't worth the extra money. It might get used or twice a year. When the power goes off, it's either less than a few minutes or it's going to be hours. It's rarely between 13 minutes and 30 minutes, which is what the extra cost would buy me.
