My tor relay's went offline and needed to be rebooted. I noticed they were off when I checked their status on atlas.torproject.org. The hosting provider is cheap/unreliable so I'm not surprised they went offline, though I wonder what I can do to make it less likely or get them to self-recover.

A while ago I installed a MQTT dashboard, but haven't put it to use yet and I wonder that is a good way to monitor server status.

My best guess is it monitors the letsencrypt transparency logs for new certificate registrations.

How did the fedilist.com/ crawler find my activitypub server so fast? How did it find it all?

What are good ways to visualize network activity over time for a collection of servers?

The bridge scan service helped to verify my relay wasn't working and it was when I uncommented the ORPort: bridges.torproject.org/scan

Yay, my tor relay is working (I think). Initially I did not uncomment the ORPort, so the program was running with logs reporting zero connections.

Interesting post about the strange state of data authentication and encryption in Linux distros... encrypting the OS and user data with the same secret doesn't make sense in a multiuser setting. Also asking for credentials from an initrd whose authenticity is not validated is problematic.

I deployed a Go hello-world AWS lambda function. The stumbling block was realizing the 'Handler' is the name of the executable.

Very much need feedback and some help with planning how this would work.
