I hope they're making a Switch remake for Oracle of Seasons/Ages like they did for Link's Awakening. I would buy that in a heartbeat!

I really enjoyed AoC's puzzle for day 16 this year. Doing a bunch of pattern matching in Elixir to decode binary data is fun, really happy with the solution I ended up with.

The dog is sleeping on my lap, so I'm pinned to the couch. There are worse ways to be.

Once again, I got a new PB for Lost Judgment in today's stream: 2:55:27, under 3 hours for the first time!

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.
