@WoodpeckerCI @gitea

I have no delusions though, despite now having this very convenient tool, I am unlikely to ever actually write anything 😋 😴

So I just deployed @WoodpeckerCI alongside my other services and connected it to my @gitea instance.

Made the first little test pipeline which uses to publish a blog from one of the Gitea repos.

I've got to say, Wow! The pipeline creation and syntax is really nice and easy, and it just works.
Love it, hats off to the Woodpecker community. 🤩

Writing a blog post is now as simple as writing the content, and making a git push. 🖋️

To all the projects that can be quickly and easily setup behind an NGINX proxy with an easy to understand config that just works, we love and appreciate you.


If I didn't have half a dozen other services that were already configured and reliant on Keycloak for auth, I would have dropped it entirely part way through.

Finished upgrading my service from v15 > v18. Ie, navigating the breaking change from JBOSS to Quarkus.

Without question one of the absolute worst, most painful software migrations I've ever dealt with. Erratic behaviour, broken proxying, faulty migration tools, and documentation that is flat out wrong in places.

Crazy that a project backed by produced something this pathetic when there are so many amazing (functional!) projects made by single individuals.

Wow, having never looked, I didn't know making custom emojis on your own instance was so incredibly simple.


A question for Fedizens who make
The small team I'm a part of at work (5-6 people) may be getting a new name. I had a stray thought that with the new name it might be fun to have a team logo made by someone who knows what they're doing.
Internal use only, no actual commercial application. Just something for avatars/wallpapers that could also fit on a shoulder patch.
My question is how long does creating something like that take and what would be fair compensation?
Boosts appreciated.

Cryptocurrencies, blockchain, ethereum. 

Just sync a node yourself to answer queries privately?

Sure, but a full archival node is currently 9TB+

And calculating the full state chain in order to determine the content of every smart contract would likely require far more.

That also assumes the app in question is even designed to allow querying custom nodes. For Brave and unstoppable domains, the options are 'Infura' or 'Off'.

Cryptocurrencies, blockchain, ethereum. 

I've been trying to teach myself a bit about blockchains and defi lately. So far I actually like

But every time I stray near ethereum and learn about some smart contract based project, that is where the stupid lives.

Ref the SS and "decentralised" unstoppable domains.

The "decentralised" domains rely on a centralised provider (Infura) to answer queries to the blockchain.

Democratised currency = good, but ethereum projects can **** right off.

When you're worried your little 8 spindle RAIDZ2 array isn't up to the task, but then you realise that's a 'G' not an 'M' 😶

Career opportunity (IT), thread, boosts appreciated. 

Bit late posting this, but I didn't realise it had been listed.

My job is up for grabs! As of Monday in fact. Senior Systems Engineer working in Queenstown, NZ.

High amount of autonomy, the job is less about the company you work for and is all about the clients. And the clients are awesome, and fun. Adventure sports, raceways, eco lodges, video arcades.
Queenstown is a playground filled with fun things to do and plenty of IT work. 1/

Seeing as people are reacting to this post today, a reminder that my job is available. Come live and work here if you like, check my other posts.

🇬🇧 The Belgian government refused to do it, so I had the impact of the proposed next-gen #DataRetention law mapped myself. The whole territory is covered, this 'targeting' is a hoax - it's blanket surveillance in disguise.

@VincentVQ@twitter.com, respect the CJEU!

A roiling sea of anguish, anger, annoyance; raw emotion churning like burning sewage.
"This," The Void said, "is where I put the screams I am given."
"I thought they just went away."
"Eventually. I don't mind storing them here until they fade."
"It's ugly. And beautiful."
