The standard AirPods are convenient but honestly not feasible in most situations (at least for me), like noisy office, or in public like on a train because the noise just bleeds in. If you want to listen you have to turn it up to the point where you’re damaging your hearing ...

When did iOS get on demand VPN connections, so you’re always connected, regardless of network (WiFi or cellular)?

It’s nice not having the VPN disconnect due to inactivity πŸ™Œ

After a lot of pain, I’ve finally upgrade cert-manager to > 0.8 (to appease LetsEncrypt.. Older versions apparently spam their API!)

Bonus: I now have wildcard certificates working! Unfortunately I need to copy the secret to other namespaces, but I’m working on a fix for that..

Last August, the excellent Gitlab forge migrated to Google Cloud : -(

As a direct consequence, the site is no longer accessible from several countries. Indirect consequence: sysadmin and developpers in these same countries can no longer download Gitlab's source code to install it on their servers.

@Framasoft provides a mirror of Gitlab Debian repositories: apt.gitlab.mirror.framasoft.or

Feel free to share the information (in other languages if possible).
