I do not like the look of my calendar on the first day back at work.


I finished both Castlevania and Persona 5 today, so I'm an emotional mess now. I'll have to wait till tomorrow to start Mass Effect: Legendary Edition.



I took on too big a clean up project and now my floor is covered in old electronics.


I'm on PTO for the next two weeks! Very excited to do anything but work for a little while.


I got my second Pfizer shot today. Can't express how grateful I am to be able to be vaccinated. We need to make sure this is available to everyone, not just certain parts of the world.


I submitted my first port to FreeBSD tonight. Nothing big, just the BIND exporter for Prometheus, but I'm still excited to contribute.


This gets at the most ridiculous part of this Basecamp thing. Both Basecamp and HEY are products that facilitate people communicating, which means political issues are deeply important to the product.

I got a little Dell computer from someone on Craigslist. I put FreeBSD on it and set up a few jails, moved a few of the more stateful things off my Raspberry Pi cluster. It's a great little box and I love it.


The other day the person at the Arby's drive-thru asked if I wanted crinkle fries, as though the curly fries weren't the entire reason I was there in the first place.



Yes! Vaccine appointment booked for tomorrow! Put that Pfizer in me.


Colorado now has COVID vaccines open to the general public but it looks like there aren't any appointments available anywhere near me. Guess I'll have to keep trying.


I finished Gideon the Ninth faster than any book I've read in recent memory. It's really good, gave me many feelings.


I have to write a self-review for work today instead of playing a bunch more Miles Morales, keep me in your thoughts and prayers please.


I think an entire year passed between when I started believing I probably had ADHD and when I made an appointment, and someone helped me make the appointment.

Hey friends, did you know that the Yakuza games are pretty good!?


The PS5 arrived today! I didn't even realize it had shipped yet, but here it is!



I managed to order a PS5 finally! I'm so nervous GameStop is gonna cancel it or something, but hopefully this is it.


I don't really do the evening binges, but the rest of these are definitely a big part of my relationship with food.

Who in recruiting did I anger that caused them to schedule me to do an interview at 9am Monday morning?

(It was probably an automated system but there's nothing funny about that)


I'm content to live in fear of the oven. It has burned me on several occasions.

Scraping Prometheus metrics with Nomad and Consul Connect

Consul Connect is a great way to set up a service mesh, but because it protects services with mutual TLS behind a proxy, it's not immediately clear how to use Prometheus to scrape metrics from services in the mesh. Let's go through exactly what you need to do to expose your service's metrics while keeping the rest of your service protected, and then we can see what you need to do to get Prometheus scraping your instances.

Work today is pushing the limits of my understanding of IP networking. Shit is not working and I have no idea why.


It's just a coincidence that Notion is down two days after I moved Relay.swift's docs off of them, right?


My WebAuthn Vault plugin is working! Registering both TouchID and my YubiKey works, and I can use them to get a Vault token. This is so rad.


Uh oh, looks like I might have tricked myself into writing a WebAuthn auth plugin for Vault.



Yesterday Twitter gave me delightful sea shanty Tiktok and today it gave me bean dad, so that's some serious whiplash.
