We couldn't go with the trend of the recent Twitter move to Mastodon, because we were already here 👀

But for the newcomers it might still be interesting to hear from their friendly collaborative Markdown editor with the cute logo. 🤗

Hey security friends! After much encouragement, Bitwarden has joined the Fosstodon family 🤗

Framework Laptop - jetzt aus Deutschland bestellbar

Dieses Laptop ist modular und, ähnlich, wie das Fairphone, einfach zu öffnen und zerlegbar. Defekte Teile können einfach ersetzt werden oder gegen leistungsfähigere ausgetauscht werden.

The elections to the Board of Directors of the @gnome Foundation are coming.

Here are my (current director) thoughts on the kind of person we need to help make the Foundation a sustainable and significant contributor to the GNOME Project.

Mhm, I'm kind of tired of talks about container security that chant for "build minimal container images". Does anyone have a case where minimal container images would have prevented a compromise?

And if so: would a minimal "distroful" (e.g. alpine or debian base image) have prevented it, or only a "distroless"/scratch container for static linked builds?

Wie heisst der griechische Gott der Lastverteilung?


Danke, ich bin schon weg.

Finished a short article this weekend about the Zalando postgres-operator and how to deploy it along side with monitoring metrics.

Looked for a comprehensive guide there for a few days and couldn't find one, so I wrote it myself :)

Let's talk a little about the hot subject of the week: #Twitter.

It's obvious why Elon Musk wants to buy it -- he's a raging attention vampire who wants to install himself as Twitter's permanent Main Character.

But it takes two to tango. You can't buy a company unless the people who own it are willing to sell it to you.

So why are Twitter's current owners willing to sell? Let's pop the hood on the company's financials and try to find out. (🧵)

I never stop to be amazed how unstable the linux userspace ABIs are.

It's ridiculous.

In der Süddeutschen Zeitung durfte ich heute in einem Gastbeitrag u.a. erläutern, warum ARD, ZDF und Co ans #Fediverse andocken sollten: #Fernsehrat

@sheogorath Not sure what your needs are, exactly, but I use a ShellyPlug S and wrote a telefgraf config that pulls its data into grafana:

Wir hatten leider verpasst, dass die Instanz zwischendurch weg war, aber wir sind wieder hier! Bis es richtig weiter geht, hier ein Obiter Dictum.

Some follow up on this one. Measurement has now going on for 241 hours (~10 days) and the consumption of one node around 13.7 KW/h on average.

The difference can be explained by the shift in workloads throughout the cluster.

I guess in order to provide better data, I'll soon buy a new "energy monitor"(?), this one is (almost) 20 years old by now, that allows me to scrape metrics that I can correlate directly with the workloads on the host.

Recommendations would be great!

I wonder how this one will end:

Will we figure out, that we could have had RPM Fusion enabled in by default all the time, or will we figure out that we can't have ?

I really hope for the former, it would make things better on many levels. Suddenly one could have functional nvidia drivers (almost) out of the box!

Mhm, I should start to graph my follower stats, there seems to be quite a lot in the past few days 👀

Anyway, welcome fellow followers, it's nice to have you around. 👋

After one week with the I have to say: I'm really happy with this thing.

It works, the fan noise is a bit crazy but something you quickly ignore once you are in-game. Updates are solid and I'm back into gaming again.

While I was cloudgaming before, it's very different to just have a device in hand and not needing to start a VM first.

I haven't tried desktop mode yet, and one has to turn down the graphics on many games to play fluently, but given the screen size that's fine.

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

This is a very interesting analysis on patch management across organisations:

Can be resolved on a category level, when moving towards more modern deployment stacks. However it also tells the story of how real adoption of these stacks looks like. Apparently, not great.

The Open Source Security Podcast talked about it in a bit more detail:

Me in the middle of the night: "How complicated is it to get vulnerability scanning for everything that is deployed in my cluster?"
Me 2 hours later: "It works! But there is this minor issue that currently all images for scanning are downloaded from upstream instead of my local mirrors. Maybe there is a setting for that."
Today: It's merged!
