Haven’t done one of these in ages, and the instance is much bigger now. So here is my #introductions post...

I’m Kev and I’m a cyber security guy working in the financial industry for a very large bank. I live in the North West of England in a fairly large town called The Wirral with my fiancΓ©, dog, cat and god knows how many fish.

I’m into walking, motorbikes, tattoos, reading, weight lifting (when time permits), oh yeah, and this thing called #Linux. I’ve also de-googled where possible.

Even though I earn a decent salary I still get stressed by those terrible "We've renewed your X subscription for $X" emails, even when it's less than a coffee πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

Nothing like a bit of Sunday night open sourcery β€” parrot.live has been patched for the event-stream malware vulnerability (which was only via nodemon..) and a small fix made it in!

Anyone here keen on reading through a blog/tutorial on setting up Kubernetes locally with Traefik as a reverse proxy, with trusted wildcard certificates and dnsmasq?

Wow what a twist, I should have read the manga, I did not expect this!

I really want to deploy GitLab to Kubernetes and migrate my current instance over but I have a feeling it's going to be a reasonable amount of effort... And not just an hour of copying the backup in and smooth sailing..

I hope there's an epic fight scene this time (again)

The latest episode of Tokyo Ghoul is really intense!

I’d forgotten how much I love Campari πŸ₯°

when you hit 1k followers Eugen dms you and shows you the secret entrance into the Deep Web version of mastodon, where everything is a hundred times hornier and a hundred times weirder. some people just cant hack it. like Laser, that's why he deleted

Should I get the Pikachu or Eevee version of PokΓ©mon: Let's Go? πŸ€”

is doing an engineering advent calendar this year! We'll be publishing a new blog post every day for the next 24 days!

@hugo This past year I was looking at web IRC options and checked out The Lounge momentarily, but ended up building something from scratch for the-cabin.com just out of simplicity. No background support for web users though… when they leave they leave. I didn’t know how many people would stay connected, so I wasn’t sure if I wanted to deal with that scaling.

🚨 If your #iPhone battery doesn’t hold a charge like it used to, be sure to jump on #Apple’s cheap $29 battery replacement price before it goes back up.

The deal ends after Dec 31 and I think the price goes back up to ~ $50 or 60.

#technology

I'm really impressed with The Lounge web IRC client/bouncer β€” the only thing I'm really missing are push notifications on iOS (Android supports Chrome Push).

It's a shame that Traefik doesn't support TCP passthrough yet (github.com/containous/traefik/)

Checkout The Lounge here: github.com/thelounge/thelounge

Fixed the deployment and now everything works. It’s been a productive Friday πŸ‘Œ

Nothing like playing a little on on public transport πŸ˜‡
