Day 7: I bought the domain, then spent some time drawing network diagrams to find the gaps in my plan. It turns out that to have multiple locations with , you need a cluster in each location, and then you can use to connect the clusters (much like ). This can also help ensure that data is replicated across physical locations. Kubernetes never ceases to surprise me with cool new features!

Day 6: My friend and I spent waaay too long picking a good domain name for the new site. The name will be revealed once the site is running.

I'm in the middle of the 2nd season of Mr. Robot. I'm not a terminal master, but every time someone uses a computer in this show, it seems very realistic.

Day 5: I took a break from the main project to start learning Ruby so I can later learn Ruby on Rails for a possible future project. A pre-pre-requisite I guess.

Day 4: I deployed a instance to ! I was not able to expose it to the external network yet but I opened up the page in links, the command line browser. Big thanks to andremotz on github for the premade yaml files:

Day 3: I realized that I definitely need kubeadm to easily add nodes to the cluster so I set it up and deployed someone's joke website 👍 . (Side note: last night I had a dream about servers and IP addresses rather than sugar plums dancing 🤔 ) Also Merry Actual Christmas!

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

... Just started setting up my #Librem5 dev kit. Kinda psyched 😎... Thanks @Purism !!! has a doubly-matched donation happening right now, so if you donate $5, they receive $15. Donate now!

Day 2: I deployed a sample nginx server to the cluster and made some ... edits ... to the default nginx page.

Day 1 of the is just over and I got a cluster running on DigitalOcean.

I just switched back to Arch (Manjaro i3) after many years in the Ubuntu-verse (Ubuntu, Mint, Lubuntu+i3) and it's nice to see that Arch packages are way more up to date (nethack 3.6.1), and fewer tarballs are needed (waterfox)! Also yaourt.

@BryanLunduke I just booted the live USB of the new version of freespire. "It seems to run on some form of xubuntu!"

@kev I recently started transitioning away from Google services, then I just found your posts about De-Googling. It's nice to know that there are other people doing this as well! Also it is reassuring to see we independently chose some of the same replacements (NextCloud & DuckDuckGo). I went with ProtonMail for email, though:
