Just finished testing and deploying my Ansible script for status.kydara.com/

I'm using Vigil. It updates automatically and notifies me if anything goes wrong. This should make maintaining the whole infrastructure much easier, I hope!

forces immediate disconnect in openssh

There should be some kind of heartbeat service by default that pings both ends of the connection every few seconds if there's no other activity going on (such as the user typing something in, or receiving text from the remote server) that terminates connections after a reasonable amount of time, for example 30 seconds. This should of course be overrideable for extremely high latency SSH connections such as satellite Internet uplinks.

I cannot easily put into words how frustrating it is to have an SSH session be terminated remotely (for example, by pulling the plug on the physical server, switching VPNs or deleting a cloud instance), yet the SSH session will simply hang for a while until it eventually realises the remote server is not responding. And the timeout starts counting from the moment you try to type anything into the terminal, so you have to forcefully close the terminal window if you don't want to wait.

"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Cool."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"
"Earth."

I really needed a logo for Kydara. This is what I came up with. Simple and sharp. What do you think?

Hui, and more fancy open source software:

languagetool.org/

Advanced grammar help, sponsored by the European Union, published as free software. And free to use in the basic configuration, with some additional, more business focused tools which are available at a higher price tier.

During these times of quarantines and self-isolation, I'm challenging all my contacts with Apple Watch to a 7-day competition. Send me your iCloud e-mail address or phone number, and I will send you the invitation.

I have been struggling with this for a while, and can't manage to find an explanation or a fix for it. My Alpine machine isn't running crontabs for non-root users. Why does this happen? Also, how can I make a script in root's crontab be run as a different user?

There's a way to unblock a reported user? I would like to follow a user from mastodon.madrid that someone reported and blocked of mastodon.social
