I passed my AWS Certified Developer -- Associate exam, to celebrate AWS decided to wreck their infrastructure! ;-)

It has been on my wishlist for a while now to create a chessbot for the fediverse in Python. All the components are there; mastodon/fediverse libraries, stockfish and a lib that generates images.
I have a deadline this Wednesday, once that is passed, its time to open Atom again and start scripting. 🙂
I don't know much about the art world, so I looked at some zoom broadcast with a friend of mine. Their pretentiousness was funny and cringe, but I lost my sides when Marina Abramović said: " Covid-19 needs to adapt to us instead of we needing to adapt to Covid-19 "
My sides were launched into orbit. 😂
Updating #mastodon went great! The instructions underneath https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.2.1 paired with https://docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/upgrading/ didn't help much. I ended up redoing portions of the installation process and had to edit the Gemfile.lock. But managed it in the end...
I am not comfortable with any of the technologies used for mastodon. I am happy I managed to get it working again in the first place. 😅
I've been looking into replacing our old saltstack and salt-cloud installation to deploy, provision and manage a fleet of EC2 instances in AWS, and unfortunately I haven't been able to find anything that is just as cheap as salt ( read: free ) that is stable enough. I've looked into Ansible (Tower) and CFengine so far, does anyone has suggestions for me to look into?
Despite elevated infections in the region I visited the two pubs I frequent. Just one more time before they close for at least 4 weeks. It felt like some bitter sweet wake with friends. Knowing well that some may not survive the next 4 weeks making the entire visit a sort of goodbye.
While my spirits was optimistic during this evening, now at home the reality is slowly setting in and there may no coming back from this.
Everything I know is a lie. 😞
Thanks to the Youtube recommendation algorithm I stumbled on this documentary on the UK Sound underground music from the late '80s/early 90's till now, how it progressed over time and its influences.
Having listened to the earlier works in the early 90's it might explain my migration into the D&B scene ~10 years ago was effortless and felt natural.
Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:
- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them
- A few companies are making a lot of damage with the help of governments
- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better
I went to the #ejabberd chat channel and got pointed to https://git.chinwag.org/chinwag/ejabberd-auth-mastodon
This solved all my issues in one go. 🙂
My mastodon user/pass are also the same user/pass for the jabber server! ❤️
Licaon_Kter or Licaon Kter, if you ever read this; thank you!
While this may be funny, I did make me wonder if ones seniority can be determined by the reliance on #StackOverflow (or sources outside the documentation in general for that matter). 🤔
I am trying to have an instance of #ejabberd authenticate against this #mastodon instance using ejabberd external authentication mechanism. The intent is to create and manage users in Mastodon and automatically offer (group)chat functionality via XMPP using the same credentials.
I still need to write the script that does ext.auth, but I figured out that the contents of users.encrypted_password field in the database can be compared using python3's bcrypt.checkpw() function.
So far so good. 🙂
A UNIX and AWS person. Sometimes geeky or lost in thought.
