LR Status

LR will have a planned outage Friday to kick over to the new UPS.

Thanks for you all that help purchase the new UPS!

Every few years a new term is coined within the computer industry—big data, machine learning, agile development, Internet of Things, just to name a few. You'd be forgiven for not knowing them all.

Some of these are new ideas. Some are refinements on existing ideas. Others still are simply notions we've all had for a long time, but now we have a new word to describe said notions.

Which brings us to a topic we cover in depth in this latest issue of Linux Journal: DevOps.

Today's News:
* Collabora Announces xrdesktop
* Arduino Selects Auth0 as Its Identity Management Platform of Choice
* Microway Showcasing Its Data Science WhisperStation at PEARC19
* Blender 2.8 Released KDE Plasma Maintenance Update

LinuxRocks folks LR needs some help.

I need someone who knows about snapshots with qcows. I need to merge them back together. I am thinking that is what is causing out filesystem issues.
Please as this is urgent we need to repair it before the filesystem gets to bad to repair.

The first kernel security update for Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" is now available. The update addresses flaw CVE-2019-13272. The issue affects older versions of as well, so all users should update now.

LR Status update.

Power failure at the data center. When the host booted it hung. Not to much to report past that. A second reboot fixed the issue. Do to me working till 4am I just got around to checking my email and seeing the outage.

Shorter post.

Come join me on telegram for outage reports, status, and just conversations .

Ok folks

I created a LinuxRocks telegram group. Since I use telegram as my primary messenger it is the easiest place to get a hold of me or to ask for updates or anything like that.

When there is a outage feel free to message me to let me know or to ask for status.

Or just come hang out and chat for those telegram users like me.

Anyone know of a telegram bot to monitor a site like LR? We could of got up a bit quicker if I would of checked my email first 😜

Looks like we were hit by a unfortunate power failure today.

So far we raised $142.48 for a new UPS. At the moment I am hoping to raise $300 to ease the cost for a rack mount UPS.

When the firewall sees something it considered a attack it blocks the IP if the attack continues from multiple addresses and blocking does not stop it then it drops the server into a blackhole and only a manual intervention or 24 hours will bring it back up.
Its very common for LR to be attacked that's why we have very aggressive firewalls.

Looks like the firewall dropped us into the blackhole again.....

Unrelated to LR news: I've apparently accidentally created a minimal, custom CRM built mostly on PostgreSQL. Kinda fun to do this sort of thing, would be nice to do more of it. Maybe not CRMs specificially, but internal systems.

Anyone know what the appropriate job title for that sort of span is? Can't really think of much better than "systems hacker". Pretty much every part of the project but the UI.
