it's been quite a long time since i posted anything here on this blog.
i've been playing with gruvbox-css, decided to switch my blog to use it and finally realized it's been almost a year since i posted anything at all.
i don't have anything in particular to post today so i figured it would be good to give a general update since the last time i posted.
i've recently been working on setting up drone ci on the tilde.team machine. however, there's been something strange going on with the networking on there.
last week i did some maintenance on the tilde.team box. probably should have written about it sooner but i didn't make time for it until now.
so you decided to switch from irssi to weechat?
what options do you need to set? what plugins? what scripts?
i'll go over some of the most essential of these, and share my full configs.
after the fiasco earlier this week, i've been taking steps to minimize the impact if tilde.team were to go down. it's still a large spof (single-point-of-failure), but i'm reasonably certain that at least the irc net will remain up and functional in the event of another outage.
we had something of an outage on november 13, 2018 on tilde.team.
i awoke, not suspecting anything to be amiss. as soon as i logged in to check my email and irc mentions, it became clear.
tilde.team was at the least inaccessible, and at the worst, down completely. according the message in my inbox, there hade been an attempted "attack" from my IP.
i just got back from a 10-day backpacking trip to italy and i'd like to share some of the photos i took!
the travel plan was rome -> venice -> florence -> naples -> pompei/vesuvius -> capri -> amalfi
this is the roman forum (with colosseum in the background) as seen from the palatine.
i somehow stumbled upon utterances today at lunch. (i think someone had it forked on their github page).
no matter how i found it, i still decided to add it to my blog here with bashblog. utterances is a commenting system that leverages github issues. so, for example a comment on a post shows up on github like this.
now we just need to figure out if it can be pointed at a gitea instance like tildegit. might be time for a PR!
not sure if this is appropriately tagged, but i didn't feel like making a new one.
i figured i should probably get some notes down about moving off google.
to start, i'll get a list of the things i was able to easily replace:
- gmail => @tilde.team mail
- google drive => syncthing (with a persistent node running on my personal vps)
i'm still using:
- gplay music/youtube
- google maps (open streetmap isn't good enough to replace it)
- google photos - but this is going to be replaced long-term with syncthing
