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 fiancé, 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.
This might have been a bad idea... 😋 https://melb.social/media/q68YEndGRaDvSKJYxDI

#Localz is doing an engineering advent calendar this year! We'll be publishing a new blog post every day for the next 24 days!
Check out our first post, "2018 Retrospective: What happened at Localz this year?" by our CEO, Tim Andrew:
@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 https://www.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.
I'm really impressed with The Lounge web IRC client/bouncer — 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 (https://github.com/containous/traefik/issues/10)
