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.

Hmm, gitlab.com now uses Cloudflare.

Generally speaking I have no problem with Cloudflare in general, they actually have a valid business value. But adding up to 5 seconds of delay to each time I open gitlab.com doesn't really help gitlab.com to make me a regular visitor.

Trying to configure a few services I'm running to use Keycloak for authentication, but honestly I don't really understand what all the buttons and settings are πŸ˜“

😭 Winning an eBay auction that I no longer want.

This might be a very obvious question.... but when running on , what should worker_processes be set to? As far as I can tell from googling, nginx isn't cgroup aware, so auto wouldn't work.

Does anyone know of an open source WAF appliance that is idiot friendly and potentially with a graphical interface?

I have tried ModSecurity / NAXSI in the past, but tbh I always found they needed a crap load of maintenance all the time.

And most Helm chart's won't work properly as they use Ingress objects too

Hmm using as my ingress can be a bit annoying at times as it uses IngressRoute object instead of the normal Ingress objects. It means things such as the Jaeger Tracing operator can't create Ingress rules automatically

What regular mastodon related maintenance cronjobs do you guys run?

Bought some more smart plugs and flashed them with Tasmota. I plugged my bedroom floor fan into one of them. Now I can switch it on and off from my phone without getting out of bed at night. πŸ˜€
