Pinned toot

If you're doing any "fun" weekend projects for personal ops, and would like to share with the masses, is a great hashtag to follow and toot under.

Be as descriptive or vague as you like, who knows maybe you'll inspire someone else to explore the wild and wooly world of libreops - operations in the open.


- building a SBC powered home appliance
- Drudgery work like syncing backups
- Patching systems (you are patching them, aren't you?)
- poking a remote unit thats gone AWOL

Pinned toot

:flan_wave: Welcome to my

I'm a pretty "run of the mill" geek. I'm an operations engineer by trade and don't talk much about work here unless i'm having one of those days. But work and my hobbies intersect often 😂

You'll find me posting about:

I'm notorious for leaving follow requests on hold. good things come to those who wait. 😉

BPF blows my mind man...

"what if we ran routing lower than userspace?"

Currently shitposting The Princess Bride gifs around work chat like its my job

:flan_popcorn: How are y'all?

Gonna head out into the weekend to grind on some gravel with the steed.

In Flames - Take this life

Have a good weekend y'all. I'll see ya on the next one.

OH: "Every time I dig around in it, I get exhausted and change nothing because the mental overhead of maintaining something I know is low"

I think this is pretty much status quo for the late adopters making the move to containerization / cloud computing.

I think I should get into chaos engineering with my penchant for deleting things and it bringing me great joy to press that confirmation of deletion button.

OH: Ticket updated. Both are bound for the furnaces.

easily the best thing I've seen today. Delete the code! burn the servers!

🤔 More survival crafting games need a tea-brewing mechanic. It's an incredibly useful bushcrafting skill for survival. Making things like nettle tea.

I just think it'd be nice to have a little tea and sammiches picnic in Valheim.

The mead is fine, but my group of players takes that to the drunken vikinger extreme.

is spring cleaning your cloud (*other people's computers/platform) projects something people do?

Just deleted somewhere around 35 unused assets and it feels goooooood.


Are there any occult-bot type accounts on the fediverse? A tarot reading bot? Might b fun.

Anyone else playing Valheim?

I may or may not have fallen into this building challenge for a couple weeks :)

I guess the takeaway here is use better scoped route advertisements and dont just spam /32's

So, you mean to tell me after you reach 100 advertised BGP routes in a cloud router, per region, it just silently flaps and you get WARNs in the log?

it took me three days to find this issue, because redundant routing is amazing. Routes flap? shit just takes another path. Thanks!

Now when two of those paths go down due to the route flap - because apparently BGP is a FIFO pseudo randomized list? (j/k)

OH: "Plunging the stack"

so... if i'm understanding this correctly - application stacks are like toilets?

seems feasible. who else plunges their stack here?
