About libssh and OpenSSH...

"Before you panic and yank the power cord on your server, know that libssh is not part of OpenSSH. Your Linux box almost certainly uses OpenSSH as the SSH daemon, and that daemon is not vulnerable to this particular problem."


‘Surveillance capitalism has led us into a dystopia’

The BBC will be releasing this short BBC Ideas piece tomorrow morning but you get a sneak peek because you’re on the fediverse ;)

PS. Note to self: learn to stare less intensely at the camera and blink more.

#Fediverse #federation

When deciding what version of the website to deliver, why do so many websites use IP address geolocation instead of the browser locale that the user set? It makes no sense to me.

Is this purely incompetence, a side effect of chem trails, or is it part of a more sinister plot by the reptilian controlled coder boot camp industry?

The support docs on this site are impossible to use. There is no way clear way to change the language.

Had fun toying with the past few days, but one thing I learned is that it’s not the best for my small lab. Still debating between or ol’ trusty .


@thegibson but see, if the AIs get big enough human-generated datasets eventually they will (looks at actually existing AIs) uh start to generate complete nonsense

and then that nonsense will generate its OWN nonsense and then we will finally have a machine more nonsensical than a human!

and then our task as a species will be done


So it looks like HPE is shutting down my R&D lab and merging it with another lab.

Looks like I am going to be looking for work. Anyone know a company hiring for NFV, Openstack,SDN, 5G SDR, Linux work?


My brain went all art deco on me, dunno why. Gonna take a break and regroup.

Finally tested out , liked what I saw, and flashed a RAID controller to IT mode.

Sanity check: My current pool is 3x 2-way mirrors, all 3TB drives. What could I expect by adding extra 2-way mirrors from 4TB drives to the pool? Any performance degradation or quirkiness? Should they be their own pool?


A message from our Tech Team:

Many of #InfoSec folk here on #Fediverse have boosted and favourited our toot about Security Analyst position we have open -- thank you!

And yet we have not received a lot of applications so far.

Don't be shy. Don't let the Impostor Syndrome get to you. You don't need a diploma or dozens of certificates to apply. You won't be wasting our time.

We're hackers like you. We need you.

First node up using the Self-Hosted Engine!

Lessons Learned:
Both the host and the Engine Management VM are going to need an FQDN. Also, if there’s multiple IP addresses assigned to the host, use the IP address of the adapter the VM bridge is going to be created on.

When using NFS for VM storage, the owner of the directory needs to be vdsm, with a UID and GID of 36.

Gonna grab lunch then get back at it!

Anyone have any experience with ? Any negative or good words to say about it?

I’m looking at swapping my lab servers to it, so I can finally get an HA cluster going. Also, it seems to integrate well with , but I’m wondering if anyone has any horrors, praises, or warninsg before I pull the trigger.

Been running RAID10 for so long that I forgot how slow the write speeds are for RAID1. Gonna have to take a nap for this file transfer.

My 5 year old son's warmachine! Fedora 28 with Cinnamon DE. Look at that core count! Don't tell his pops also uses it as a KVM box.


Jamendo is a great place to find new music and for independent artists to share their work. I created some playlists and uploaded some of my own old tunes Hope you find something you like 🤟

Got a couple of weeks between classes, haven’t done a course on in a while, just makes sense to spend the time getting down and dirty with .


Accessibility is important.

It can mean ARIA support, image optimization, non-js browsers, translations, lightweight design for bandwidth limited users, enabling a safe environment for everyone and much more.

I really appreciate your feedback in the development of pixelfed because I want it to be accessible to everyone.

If anyone is getting rid of their boards, I’ll take them off your hands.
