Hello! I'm Hamzah. I'm a /#devops engineer in my day job. I live in .
I consider myself a hardcore geek, but these days most of my time is taken up by my three kids and wife.

I'm very interested in automation, and have a small addiction to , and .

Is there any other provider that has something similar to Argo Tunnels? Not ngrok.
I know I can just use a VPS and SSH tunnels, but I want something that I don't have to manage the remote side at all.

Here's a quick #DevOps hot take: Not everything needs to be HA. Sometimes it's better to prioritize simple redeployments and DR, especially if it means less overall uptime dependencies in the stack.

UK Politics 

Johnson will say he will keep going after suffering double by-election defeat.

At this point this man is wholly inept or corrupt. I think it is a mix of both - I can't imagine with results like this anyone would want to stay in his role for long.

He must be planted there for some very wealthy elite(s) to do their bidding with Johnson as their vessel.

That, or nobody can quite figure out who to replace Johnson with. They're all shit.

I note that the OED's word of the day has been timed to perfection with the UK Tory party today:


Tories lose two key byelections on same night in Wakefield and Tiverton and Honiton

"The Tory candidate, who had endured a sometimes tricky campaign, locked herself in a room set aside for media interviews at the West Devon count, reportedly refusing to speak to the press."

Wow. #ukpol

I've said elsewhere that Johnson will be gone before Christmas. On this showing, he may not even make it to the end of summer.

Geez, and this is just a recap of the last six months.
I think this is what he means by "keep delivering".

Gosh I wish we could just get rid of this guy already. Though I don't like Keir Starmer either

Boris Johnson vows to 'keep going' after double Tory by-election loss via @YouTube

got rid of and setup . Seems to be working well so far.... nobody has complained anyway 🤣

So annoying when people in a video meeting:
1) Use their laptops mic/speakers so there is a lot of feedback and sound quality is crap
2) don't even mute when they aren't speaking!

In the next release of #Owncast power users will be able to monitor server metrics using their existing Prometheus infrastructure.

Does anyone use ? I'm considering changing from to Blocky because it seems a lot more friendly (it's a single yaml file for configuration!). I don't really use any of the graphing etc features of Pi Hole anyway.
