    lacion got a reaction from throttlemeister in Basic Server for running 2 Seperate virtual machines   
    you definitely very opinionated and against new style of doing things, and you definitely seem to not know about the new tools and observability capabilities we have nowadays.
    almost no one runs untested development code on prod, at least not companies that have a stable product, but that does not mean that they are not running say canary releases, and i can assure you when running canary style deployments they know specifically whats failing, how and who are the users experiencing the failures.
     
    that's totally fine btw, you may be working in environments where containers, moving fast and monitoring everything may not be possible or plausible, but that does not mean there are not people doing it at scale perfectly fine out there.

    will start looking for that, 4u is definitely not an issue i have room for at least 2 4u units.
     
    thanks for the pointer.

    im running a 2080TI driving 3 1440p 100hz ultrawide displays, I think a 2080 could do that easily too.

    lacion got a reaction from mr moose in An Open Letter to Linus Tech Tips from The Passthrough Post   
    it looks like that "open letter" is just a cry for attention. nothing else. 
     
    also, the expectation that in order to make good use of an OSS project one needs to get in contact with the creator? that is the total opposite of what open source is.
     
    I saw the video on floatplane and all I have to say it 100% reflects the use of a guide like that for a normal user. I dabble in projects like this from time to time, and some times I just find a guide and roll with it, most people don't have days or weeks to research all the content of the internet to find the "right" or "perfect" step by step guide.
     
    I totally hate it when the Linux community get angry when something is absolutely horrible to find. information is very outdated in some places and finding the right guide or documentation is very time consuming some times.

    i been playing around with fitting all the parts. this is my last attempt. i ran out of 16mm petg tube, i may order more and try to do 2 90 bends on the tube from the RAD to the GFX and try to get it parallel to the other tube.
     
    next step i will paint the RADs red and the grill leave black. i will also be painting all the fittings red.

    Different points of views. What I may consider toxicity you may find normal behavior. We all have different experiences in life and have different tolerance levels. (for me he being "civilized" in some videos do not make the other more toxic ones better.) 
     
    for the way of it, most of his videos are very scripted but he has a few that are more freeform, and I think that shows up a bit more of the real him.
     
    Again on all of this is just a matter of opinion. I do not know him personally, but I have my educated guess, and that is enough for me to have his content hidden.

    lacion got a reaction from wasab in Science Studio got sued?   
    (warning I'm very biased towards this guys, I don't like him at all) he thrives on controversy and pushes that a lot for views and comments, in YT and Twitter he always piles up with the trolls and blind fans to boost his ego. I guess once you start thriving and pushing controversy this is one of the possible end results. I don't know if he deserves it or if the claims are possible, but this is the game he plays in the end.
     
    he usually acts very arrogantly in his videos, and when someone points something he does not like he starts piling his fans to attack others that do not think the same way, I think in general the community of people he manages is pretty toxic.

    lacion got a reaction from v0nN3umann in Memorizing Programming Languages   
    I work as DevOps/SRE and as such I have to deal with code in a lot of different languages (basically whatever the different teams uses) there are days where I have to make code changes in 4 different languages (python, node, typescript, golang) remembering language specifics at the rate I have to change is almost impossible. 
     
    I would say that knowing where to look to get the answers to your questions doubts is more important than knowing language specifics, also using IDE's with good autocomplete and deep inspection is a must, also I usually keep a few CheatSheets for the common languages I use at hand to be a bit faster.
     
    if you work professionally on a single language the knowledge will get imprinted in your brain the more you work with it, its just the natural learning process. I try not to get to used to a single language as the nature of my job demand me to be "fluid" in whatever gets thrown at me.

    It's more than obvious nowadays that the whole automatic updates model is not providing more security to users, in fact, it may be damaging them, it looks like having vendors close sourcing security or software updates is now a successful vector attack for malicious actors, we need more ways to verify that what we are installing is indeed what were suppose to or actually want to install a mere signature is not enough. waiting for the tech paper by Kaspersky here it looks like the attackers actually took full control of Asus distribution servers and were able to get their hands on the certificate used to sign binaries or at least took control of the servers that were doing the signing.

    I totally see your point there, there is a problem of trust, insecurity generally speaking you should trust no one. so if we updated based on a trusted vendor, we already incurring in insecure practices.
     
    what we need are new validation processes where the updater does not assume something is trusted.

    I was looking at the art of the LOTR movies the other day and got inspired by the Mordor design to build an ITX tower heavily inspired by it.
     
     
    As of know, the theme of the build color wise will be most BLACK with red accents the fittings that will most likely get painted and aged. the front panel will be modded for added airflow for the top fan and the bottom Rad fans also allowing a bit of light shining through.
     
    I'm also going to build custom cables for the motherboard and the GPU using paracord sleeving cables will be black and red.
     
    Parts for the build:
    AMD - Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7 GHz 8-Core Processor
    ASRock - AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard
    Corsair - Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
    Samsung Evo 970 plus NVME m.2 1TB 
    MSI - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB ARMOR Video Card
    Phanteks - ENTHOO EVOLV SHIFT X Mini ITX Tower Case

    Corsair - SF 600 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply
    Corsair - LL120 RGB LED 43.25 CFM 120mm Fan x2
    Corsair - LL140 RGB LED 51.5 CFM 140mm Fan x2
    Corsair Commander PRO
    Corsair RGB Fan LED Hub
    Corsair Lighting Node PRO
     
    for the loop:
    EK-FC1080 GTX Ti TF6 - Acetal+Nickel
    Supremacy EVO
    EK-D5 res-pump combo
    EK-RES Tube 250mm
    EK 16mm Nickel Fittings
    Thermal Take Petg 16mm tubing
    EK Coolstream PE 240mm Rad
    EK Coolstream PE 120mm Rad
    EK Cryofuel Solid RED
     
     
    updates coming soon with the first concept drawings, I will be documenting all the build with photos in this thread and finish it off with a full video. I will skip the usual product box and unboxing photos as this is not sponsored by anyone ? (though that would have been cool) and just go straight to the build.

    as far as I know, there is no easy way to do this with websites. if by services you mean SaaS like cloud providers or API providers, there are ways to do this programmatically.
     
    a known tool to do this is hashicorp's vault.

    there is no solution that's a 100% secure. that's not possible as of today.
     
    the most secure system mostly rely on key rotation, the more frequent key rotation is the more secure the data is, some time key rotation happen partitioned, meaning data is fragmented and encrypted with different keys minimizing exposure in case of a breach. but a breach will always be a scenario in any secure system.

    the new benchmark for hashcat means that now the entire keyspace or every possible combination of upper, lower, numbers, symbols of an 8 character password can be guessed in 2.5 hours using x8 2080 ti´s they now can do more than 100GH/s with a single compute unit, for comparison, a 1080ti can't even do half of that.
     

     
    this now means that is within the realm of possibilities that any attacker that get his hands on any of the big site password leaks can churn you hashed password and get it within in days(or less depending on hardware) if your using a perfectly random password, if you use a name or a word within your password means they pretty much can get it instantly.
     
    so if you have a complex save password of 8 characters or less is now time to go and change it everywhere as is no longer save especially given the latest password leaks (https://www.cnet.com/news/massive-breach-leaks-773-million-emails-21-million-passwords/)
