I love Firefox. I’m a Firefox user, and hopefully always will be. Firefox is better than any other browser (plus it’s free and open-source). However, there have been a few technical things that I don’t like.
You can summarize Android 12 as “Extra Dim”, also known as: I upgraded to Android 12 and all I got was this lousy, bright gray dark theme.
The year is 2021, and I need to write a Windows Batch Script to get Helm Post-Renderer working on Windows so I can deploy my application to Kubernetes.
Like many people, I (have to) use Slack to collaborate with team members at work.
These are hard lessons I’ve learned so far.
Out of the box, security with Docker (and Docker Swarm) over the network is bad. Okay, that’s not entirely true. Out of the box when you have no containers started, it’s fine. But after you start a container, and if you publish a port, they are exposed to the outside world by default. And it’s not easy to fix. You need to create a custom Docker firewall with iptables.
There’s not a lot wrong with Ubuntu 20.04. So it’s pretty easy to fix the one thing that’s missing! Hint: Install the Cinnamon Desktop.
When testing Docker and iptables I stumbled upon something interesting. It appears Docker uses the iptables INPUT chain in an undocumented way. Well that’s interesting..
If you’ve ever used Docker, you’ve probably used the latest Docker image tag. This is bad. Do not do this! You will be in a situation where you need to find what version you were actually using. This is how you can find the version of that “latest” image you have running.
Ansible is used to do so many things. And if you already use Ansible for your automation tasks then you already have it ready to go. So why not use Ansible to test network connectivity?
