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

At 200 followers I'll open up an ssh server and give ya'll the login and let everyone go ham as it dies from multiple forkbombs and someone running "chmod / 777 && setenforce 0"

Hmm really need more nodes for my home cluster. I tried to deploy the Helm chart, but it was pretty much unusable, mainly because my nodes are formed of very crappy Intel Celeron CPUs which are already over worked.

Any Windows around that can help a clueless Linux out? :( I can't figure out why this isn't working

Following up on this, I installed Windows Server 2019 Evaluation in a VM. Tried to setup Active Directory, and I've already broken it twice. It's been years since I used any form Windows, so it's my first time using Windows Server Core / PowerShell. It's actually kinda nice....
I feel so dirty for saying that 😂

Awesome! CentOS just announced they will release CentOS 8 on 24th of September \o/

So have your playbooks by hand and get ready to deploy a whole load of new boxes :)

#linux #CentOS #RHEL #RHEL8 #CentOS8

I don't know why my anxiety is extremely bad today. :(

Watching the last episode of Hotel Del Luna. Who is cutting onions right now?! I don't want it to end :(

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I might have to setup a Windows Server VM at home, just to play with. I am completely clueless with windows, and to be honest as a SysAdmin I think it's probably useful to know a little bit of how to manage Active Directory etc

If you are waiting for CentOS 8 since RHEL 8 came out in May, you might be interested in why it's still not there:

TL;DR: There was RHEL7.7 which becomes CentOS 7.7 and since CentOS already has tons of active users, it's more important to ship CentOS 7.7 than CentOS 8.

#RHEL #RHEL8 #CentOS #linux #community

Morning my lovelies, it's almost the weekend! Here's your coffee and tea, pick your favourite! ☕ ❤️

And also a follow up on my traefik story, where an upgrade of the go version dropped the defaults for TLS connections down to SSLv3, instead of TLS1.0.

The wonderful team around traefik solved the problem and released a new version within 2 days:

That's how things should work!

#traefik #infosec #security #TLS #SSL

I was so proud when I finished the puzzle in six months, when on the side it said three to four years.

Is anyone actually using for anything?
