Pinned toot

Hello! I'm Hamzah. I'm a engineer at a large video games company in .
I consider myself a hardcore geek, but these days most of my time is taken up by my son and wife. While I don't really consider myself much of a gamer, I do love the series.
I'm very interested in automation, and have a small addiction to , and

Changed my mail setup to use . I like it, but kinda frustrating losing some flexibility you have with using a DIY /#dovecot setup vs something ready made.

I have backups of everything, except my kubernetes master itself.

I mean, it's not too difficult to rebuild the master, but it would mean basically rebuilding the cluster as all the certificates etc will need to be changed and everything re-deployed.

I tried dd'ing the failed disks to known working disks and hoping that I can bring the array back up that way, but that didn't work either.

Not having a good day today.
Woke up this morning with my lower back aching and feeling stiff.
Then when I switched on my laptop and got ready for work, I noticed two disks had died in one of my home servers (which runs my kubernetes master VM). It's a RAID10 array, and just my luck both of the dead disks were from the same mirror so it's basically screwed.

me and my wife are looking for a new flat to move into. Man it's so difficult right now.
Both my mum and sister is out of the country right now, so we don't have anyone to look after the kids at the moment, and due to virus etc the estate agents don't allow us to bring kids for viewings.

I don't know anything about deep learning, or neural networks, but I got my hands on one of these. I wonder if there is any interesting, ready made projects I can use to play with it for a bit.

Hmm tried to replace 's certificates with certificates signed by my server so I don't get a certificate error. I'm not sure why, but it has severely broken things :(

I'm pretty sure I'm driving the guys at the colo-datacenter crazy.
I just changed a router config option, and now it's inaccessible :(

Was moving some furniture, and managed to do something to my back. 😓

Looks like we are going back into lockdown in the .

Having all sorts of problems with my cluster, and gluster.
I'm going to move it to using iSCSI on a server. I don't think I've ever experienced working well.

VLANs on Mikrotik routers are just too confusing man. It's so easy on literally every other platform.

Watching for the hundreth time today. I'm a huge Khabib fan, but Justin Gaethje is such a cool and classy guy.

Man, sometimes it's so frustrating dealing with datacenter people.
I can't access the Supermicro BMC of a server because their firewall is restricting access to port 443, 5900, and 5901 but they keep blaming it on java.
I completely get that Java can be problematic on older BMCs, but if I can't even reach the required ports, then it's not a java problem! 😡

So excited for . It's all I've been thinking about all week 🤣

Does anyone actually use a browser based editor as their main editor? Eg something like Eclipse Che, or Theia, or VSCode? It seems like a cool concept, but I'm not really sure where it would be useful.
