Kind notes

 Note

#Kubernetes peeps - is there a way to mount a Secrets volume as read-write and allow an application to write to it? I'm migrating code that expects a filesystem to persist secret changes to and am not sure if I'm trying to avoid rewriting too much?

 Note

Is anyone using #gitlab's Auto DevOps with a Maven/Gradle multimodule project? Thinking about maybe giving it a go, with deployment to GKE for ease of management of my services, but wanna find out if its suitable first, and how to pass secrets that would be in an application.properties on the host. Or I guess, do I need to rewire the app instead?

 Note

Nothing like a but of Phaeleh to soothe my soul while doing a stressful shop where it's busy, and there's a tonne of unmasked

 Note

Has anyone managed to use #Wiremock in a Java app and call the handlers without needing an HTTP server before? I've got it using Reflection but would prefer alternatives if possible 😅

 Note

Has anyone written #Java #Cucumber tests using cucumber-picocontainer recently? Looking at how to set up an object for a class that you don't control? Finding I can't easily instantiate it

 Note

Hey #ChefFriends how do you generally manage syncing a cookbook between Supermarket and #Chef Server? Wondered if there's anything currently out there to pull the cookbook and it's dependencies, in the right order to Server?

 Note

Reminder that it's #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham tonight! I hope to see you there at 1730 for some website stuff, and maybe playing around with some of the stuff I mentioned at #TechNott! https://events.indieweb.org/2021/04/homebrew-website-club-nottingham-7uyCl6f2j0vV

 Note

Had a fun bug tonight with the new #ApexLegends "Second Chance" mode that, as I was being respawned, my team was wiped, but me and one teammate still respawned. I couldn't control anything but they could and managed to fight a bit longer even though we were dead 😂

 Note

Thanks to everyone who joined me last night at #TechNott for my talk about the #IndieWeb - you can find the recording of the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFXOZww5mmE - I'll also look at getting it uploaded to Archive.org for longevity!

 Note

Happy #TechNott day all! Looking forward to seeing you later to hear a bit more about what the #IndieWeb is, and the ways you can get involved owning your data and building cool things for yourself https://www.technottingham.com/events/tech-nottingham-april-2021

 Note

Well it's my second lockdown birthday - here's hoping there won't be a third! Come to my website to enjoy the birthday balloons 🥳

 Note

Welp, backlog of webmentions from telegraph.p3k.io means you may see some poorly timed interactions from me - sorry 🙃

 Note

I find it nice seeing folks refreshing my blog on a Sunday night, waiting for my week notes to be there. Well, they are now 🙃

 Note

It's a good thing I'm preparing to reinstall my desktop cause rm -rf * in my home directory is not a fun thing to accidentally do 😳😬

 Note

Hey you, #Jenkins folks! If you're still configuring things in the UI / using Jenkinsfiles but haven't yet gotten around to looking into #JobDSL I've got you covered https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/02/23/getting-started-jobdsl-standardised/

 Note

Welp if I still had that Dogecoin from all those years ago, I'd have 11k today 😥

 Note

It feels odd to suddenly have i.e. replies to tweets be sent ~90 seconds after I post the comment, instead of ~8 minutes later. Turns out that some tweaking of #Netlify settings, reducing some of the size of files on my site, and migrating from Netlify to #Cloudfront with a self-hosted shell #gitlab CI runner makes a big difference!

 Note

Managed to track down what the ~5 minutes of post processing was on my #Netlify site (thanks to the wonderful support from https://community.netlify.com/t/slow-deploy-times/30857/4) - now I wonder how else I can trim the deploy speed to something more reasonable

 Note

Folks who use #cloudfront for regularly changing sites (ie multiple times an hour) how do you handle caching? Is it off? Fine tuned for the content? Always cache invalidate on a publish?

 Note

Feeling especially lazy - does anyone have a good resource for setting up S3 + CloudFront + a custom domain name, with an IAM role that can only read/write to the bucket? My brain wants to outsource the work for this one 🙃

 Note

One of the perks of moving into my #NewHouse was that it'd allow me to go over to Lidl to get warm cookies whenever I wanted. It's been just over a month, and I've done it - starting the day with a warm, gooey cookie and a good cup of tea is the best ways to start a week 🍪🍵

 Note

Has anyone successfully generated Java POJOs from the #Postman #JsonSchema? Using the Maven/Gradle plugin seems to not be able to understand all the different definitions (ie Request) which I kinda don't wanna have to write bindings for myself 🤔

 Note

Tonight I've been investigating a few things for my #Postman API Hack and I've found that Postman's OAuth2 support is pretty awesome - it works very nicely with #Indieauth which is an important part of my hack 😉 I'm also pretty happy with what I'm planning on doing - hoping to get some good progress with the hack itself this weekend, too!

 Note

Last year I wrote https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/12/16/second-appendixaversary/ as a reflection on the rupturing of my #appendix two years ago. I can't believe it's three years on, and I really can't imagine how I would have coped if it were this year

 Note

I'm really surprised #github has only got "merge when this PR succeeds" - at work we've got an internal bot to do this for us but it'll be great when it's part of the platform!

 Note

Well, tonight at #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham I managed to get my staging site using my new #indieauth server, and aside from a couple of hiccups, it works 🎉 now I just need to clean up a few bits and add some logging for debugging, then we're good to go 😱

 Note

As December is a pretty busy month, this week's #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham will be the last of the year - so we're going to look back at the year, and try to see some of the good in it. Note that it's on Thursday, not Wednesday!
