Recently moved a lot of my company's repos over to GitLab. Was tired of having a mixed state of some CI/CD for various projects and multiple different 3rd party services to do all of that. So much more organized and having a company-wide standard practice saves a lot of time when you're ready to release. Moving toward a documented development process for internal and external services

Telegram Loses Bid To Block Russia From Encryption Keys bloomberg.com/news/articles/20 tl;dr they aren't complying. It will be interesting to see what happens here.

Decided to yesterday. I'll probably miss some family stuff but aside from that it was all junk.

Ran a local meetup with mild success. I think my lack of organization showed. I need to be better prepared next time.

Meltdown and Spectre

Bugs in modern computers leak passwords, sensitive data.

Desktop, Laptop, and Cloud computers may be affected by Meltdown. More technically, every Intel processor which implements out-of-order execution is potentially affected; nearly every processor since 1995.

Almost every system is affected by Spectre: Desktops, Laptops, Cloud Servers, Smartphones. All modern processors capable of keeping many instructions in flight are potentially vulnerable.

Feeling like a wizard because I managed to get an umbrella app built and deployed with docker. Multistage kicks ass. Building assets, documentation static files, and release using distillery in separate containers, but one Docker file. Getting the proper config took a while and there were some gotchas. I'll probably write this up as a blog post

Hey friends, I'm looking for a development job in or near Austin, TX, or Remote.

I have experience in Rust, Elixir, Ruby primarily, but I've also worked in Python, Elm, Java, C, and C++, and have knowledge of HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and SQL.

Here's my github: github.com/asonix

If you could boost this around, that would be super cool.

Fun bug fix of the day:

Anyone in my Google Contacts that had a link in their profile was no longer syncing to my device. That was basically anyone I contacted on a daily basis plus a bunch of others. Made me stop and think which numbers were texting me.

So it seemed to me like an issue with the Contacts Android app. I'm betting the SyncAdapter logic is where the issue lies. Having built one myself, it's easy to do. Anyway, better test data must be needed ;)

This week it's tech: 2 me: 0

Google contacts decided I don't need all my contacts to be synced to my phone, just a few is fine. Still no fix yet.

Keyboard and track pad just decided to stop working on the laptop. Luckily a restart fixed this.

Might as well throw an toot on this instance, too

I also like being in the woods on foot or two wheels, making and discovering new music, cooking for my family, tasting tasty foods and beverages, and traveling abroad
