I was wondering why so much of my RAM is in use...

Turns out vagrant is still running two VMs in the background

Playing around with ansible + docker to eventually host my new personal server. Because it will also include an authoritative dns server my local dev environment now looks like this:

A vagrant file, which sets up two VMs and provisions them with ansible. One with the test environment and one with a recusive dns server and a socks5 proxy.
Also a browser.sh script, which creates a new firefox profile, with the socks5 proxy preconfigured and then starts firefox.

It feels slighly over the top...

Btw: The fix was to run an additional recursing dns server in the local test environment, which can connect to the local authoritative dns server.

Yesterday I was messing around with DNS servers and spend around an hour trying to figure out why no public DNS servers could resolve my subdomain, provided by my own authoritative DNS server.

Obviously public DNS servers can't reach my test instance running on my local network...

I made an interesting kotlin dsl thing to match mqtt topics...
It's basically a switch-case using regex.

Anyone remember when Humblebundle had good bundles?

Is anyone here a C++ expert and can explain this line to me?

return ((T (*)(void *, member_prop_t))fid->proxyGetFunc)(obj, memberProp);

C++ is dark magic and I have no idea what I'm doing right now.

So epic games has implemented direct payment options in their fortnite apps, got kicked out of both the google play store and apple app store for violating their policies and is now suing both google and apple?

I just noticed that tusky is now able to not completely cover images with their alt text, so you can actually see them.
Great!

Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

I just had a github repo reach 50 stars.

It's a blender plugin I haven't updated in 4 years and which is probably broken by now...

Hey look: I also got the cool new github badge (like pretty much everyone else...)

wired: using your display name for IPA so people know how to pronounce your name
