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 home-assistant.io.

Sigh, it's 00:25 and I broke my GitLab instance. Should I sleep, or should I fix it? Hmmm

I switched to Cinnamon as my desktop environment on my work laptop last week, as Gnome 3 was eating all my RAM and CPU resources.
I've liked it quite a bit so I decided to switch to Cinnamon on my personal laptop too.

I ordered more RAM for my work laptop. So exciting. It should be arriving any minute now.

I wish the app for Android didn't suck. Sync is always hit and miss for me/

Is there a way to override the location where sidekiq/paperclip downloads media temporarily before uploading to S3? At the moment I can see it is writing to /opt/mastodon/ but it means I can't set readOnlyRootFilesystem: true in my sidekiq deployment :(

I wonder when Cinnamon will be getting Wayland support. Looking at the GitHub, most of the devs seem to be anti-Wayland.

I switched my work laptop from Gnome to Cinnamon. I like it so far. Gnome seemed to eat all my RAM with barely anything running, and the gnome-shell process seemed to always use a good amount of CPU. Cinnamon seems to be working a lot better. Less RAM and CPU usage. I know there are even lighter environments, but for various reasons I didn't like them.

This morning we had a car driving down the road slowly with a recording from party. Something like "Vote party for peace and harmony in your community". Honestly sounded like something from a movie about a dystopian future.

In winter, 9AM looks like 9PM. Sunrise isn't till 9:30.

I wish IPv6 networking was easier with Docker. I used to have almost all my services enabled before I started using .

At this rate, I might as well just ban all of 222.186.0.0/16... At thttps://www.abuseipdb.com/user/36501 It's almost all from china!

I enabled on a few of my servers which have publicly exposed. I have configured it to also report to AbuseIPDB. It seems like it is banning the whole of China 😅 So many IPs from China trying to brute force SSH. It's interesting.

My brain feels so foggy today because of this damn cold.
Finding it very difficult to form a thought. It's kind of like when you have an itch that you can't pin-point to scratch. The thought is right there in my head, but I just can't get to it.
