This is like going on eBay, and buying a Intel Pentium 4 machine, and complaining that Windows 10 doesn't support it, then asking for a refund. It's not really the sellers fault, is it?

I mean, I put the exact model number, so they could easily research it, just as I did when I originally bought them.
And it's just unfair to report it as defective, as now I have to cover the return postage, when in reality in my opinion this is entirely the buyer fault as they didn't research it before buying! If anything, they should cover the postage back to me.

It's rather annoying that if you sell something on eBay, the buyer can report it as defective and you basically HAVE to refund it. I sold a few Intel Neural Compute Sticks on eBay. These are the original NCS sticks, which aren't supported anymore.
Buyer wants a refund because they didn't do any research before buying, and only just discovered that they would have to use an older version of OpenVino in order to use the NCS. That's not really my fault is it?

Hmm I still have this dedicated server until the 24th. What shall I use it for the next 3 days.

Is it weird to get a bit nostalgic when decommissioning a server you've had for a very long time?

Does anyone use nolisting on their domains? Ie set the primary MX that is always unavailable. If so, how much does it delay email?

19:11:04 up 564 days, 23:27, 2 users, load average: 0.14, 0.10, 0.07. Oops.... I forgot to patch this machine for a while it seems.😅

Moved a bunch of things from my rented OVH dedicated server, to my colocated servers in Coventry.
Just have to wait for DNS caches to update everywhere then I can finally get rid of my OVH machine.

Just watched Greenland. Really enjoyed that. I honestly love natural disaster movies. I don't know why, but I just love them.

ElectroBOOM is by far one of my favourite YouTube channels, but this video made me laugh a lot 😂

I think I'm gonna have to get a new Thunderbolt dock. My current Dell TB16 Dock doesn't work with Mac OS X without installing a kernel extension. While that is fine etc, I just don't like the idea that it could break with any OS update.
It's a bit annoying, because I have two TB16 docks. They have a bad reputation, but to be honest I haven't had any issues with them.

My new work laptops arrived in the post today, but I don't know the passwords :(
I have to wait till Tuesday, my official start date to get the passwords. Sigh.

Hmm this is the first time I've used a scanner in Linux.

For our second goal we have something different.. Our teacher and ground asset for SFA has no working laptop anymore! :sad_cat:

Teaching kids at home during COVID cannot be done without a working lapotop!

So we have been looking for a good laptop within a good price range but we need your help...!

Can you spare a few bucks to help out @JonathanMBR for a new working laptop so he can get back teaching kids? ❤️

It's interesting seeing the alerts that is giving. I need to tune the rules that are active, but honestly I don't really know how to choose which rules to enable, or what to do when there is an alert!

I mean, there are so many alerts at the moment. For example I have A LOT of alerts for IPs with a poor reputation. Not really much to do in that case, so do I just disable the rule for poor reputation IPs?

I finally got around to enabling suricata on my router. Figured it would be a good idea since now I finally have some useful traffic going through it now that I have a K8S cluster running behind it.

Yay, kubespray worked without any issues, other than having to reboot the nodes once due to how rpm-ostree installs packages.
Shiny new cluster is running. Using cri-o as well, instead of docker. :)

Kubespray playbook is doing its thing. I'll be quite happy if this works without having to do much troubleshooting.

Finally! got a FCOS VM built. It's an ugly process, but it works for now.
Now to repeat a few more times, and then try kubespray'ing it

I spent all day yesterday trying to get to provision some CoreOS and VMs, but I think I'm going to give up on getting Terraform to generate the ignition files, and injecting them through oVirt. I think the oVirt Ignition support is still a bit buggy.

Instead I'm going to just use terraform to build some blank VMs, and PXE boot them and point them to the ignition scripts.
