I really need a favicon for my blog. The standard Hugo favicon is getting old.

Look at that pretty season. Its actually a little more golden than the camera shows.
Getting excited to get my smoke on.

Tried multi-tasking, turned stove top to high while was talking on the phone and this happened to the newly seasoned pan. :(

Well today didn't go as plan with restoring the cast iron cookware, but I'm at least one step closer to the finish line. Maybe tomorrow morning I can be done with them all.

On the bright side my smoker is re-seasoned and done. Only thing left is to buy new cooking racks.

Well, smoker is cleaned out and mold free. Just got to clean the cooking racks, heat the smoker up tomorrow (make sure things still work since it electric) then re-season it. Then I can smoke a pork loin for the weekend.

On the cast iron skillet adventure; I still have a crap ton of work left re-seasoning 2 pans, and restoring/re-seasoning the other 4 pans, bacon press, and a kettle.

the salt and lemon half worked wonders cleaning it up.

I forgot to clean my electric cabnit smoker before storing it. Now it's um, well, need a good clean. So, maybe while it's cool outside I'll get it cleaned and re-seasoned today.

For some reason. I'm in a chill Doors and Beatles mood today.

update. Does anyone have experience with configuring Wiki.js?

It's a nice looking wiki that I'm setting up for all our departments, so anyone has to be able to work with it. I'm trying to figure out what's possible in terms of layout and navigation. I've already figured out how to connect it to our FreeIPA server.

I'm looking forward to Thursday or Friday. I may pull out all my cast iron and clean them up and re-season them for I can use em.

Though I'm afraid it may be a lot of work, esp the kettle pot thing and my bacon press.

Today is one of those days when I ignore the Federated timeline.

Operating Fosstodon today is difficult. I think I may need more sleep or coffee, or both.

@Gina forgot to even tag you in this i believe lol.

I just now realized who you are, the non-cat photo threw me off lol. Is it sad I remenber people by their profile picture?

I've been building Flóðgátt, a replacement streaming API server for Mastodon. The goal is to cut RAM usage and make hosting an instance that much cheaper.

So far, we've cut RAM for the streaming server of an empty instance by ~94.2%

The next task is to make sure that lower RAM usage can scale without other issues (e.g., CPU).

To do that, I need a test server with enough connections to see how Flóðgátt performs under load.

That's where y'all come in: can you please follow @codesections ?

Does anyone on the #fediverse have an old/nonfunctional OnePlus One they want to get rid of?

I want to fix mine which has a broken back cover and volume buttons. Sadly they don't make parts for these anymore.

Just a quick and overdue update to the blog if you're interested.

My first hurricane.
