My spam database

I have decided to create my own curated database of spammers due to the fact that I throughly detest spam and spammers. This database may be used by anyone and there may be some value to my database as it will be somewhat unique -- primarily because I collect the…

Tillix

I have a new favourite terminal which I discovered by chance and it is called Tillix[1] (formerly Terminix). It is nothing but a joy to work with and it saves me a lot of extra work space since it supports what the name suggests; tiling. A lot of other…

A short note for future reference. The example Caddyfile configuration for GitLab provided by the ones maintaining Caddyserver[1] gives you the advice to proxy using TCP rather than to a UNIX socket. I have always found it better vis-à-vis performance to use UNIX sockets wherever applicable. I am sure…

This post serves as a note to myself and I post it here in case I forget how I "solved" the issue. This blog does not run WordPress but I have a lot of other blogs which do run that software and I typically install Automattic's JetPack plugin[1] on…

I was going to deploy an instance of Rocket.Chat on an Alpine Linux (version 3.5.2) powered system, a so-called kernel-based virtual machine to be precise, almost one week ago from today, but I ran into an issue which I had no time to properly debug and/or…

Note: Shutter

My 'custom command' for Shutter[1] is as follows: /usr/bin/shutter -s -e -o 'Screens/%name-%M-%D-%Y_k0nsl.png' I append "k0nsl" at the end due to habit and because when I upload it to a service such as 0x0f.su it will be easier for me…

This is more of a personal note for myself -- rather than a so-called 'mental note' -- on how to enable TUN/TAP for LXC containers. There are two options. One can either edit the configuration found in /etc/pve/lxc, in my case this would be 100.conf. The…

My IRC network

Hello all, This is just a short post — a test post so to speak — after I did some major tweaking on my main reverse proxy, so I'll use this opportunity to promote my IRC network (k0nslIRC): You can join me and the others by connecting to the round-robin irc.k0nsl.…

I've provided a public Dotdeb[1] mirror since early 2014 but I didn't write about it on my primary blog, or on this blog. So here are the instructions on how to use my mirror. You will see that using my mirror, or any Dotdeb mirror, is very simple: You…

This is more of a personal note rather than a blog post for public consumption. In any case, it might be useful for other people too. It's a simple, straightforward way to get TLS/SSL going for a Proxmox VE node[1]. For starters: ./root/certbot/certbot-auto certonly -d node.…
