Not going to lie. The GitHub Action cron job that builds the website automatically for me has not worked for weeks. I moved some sites to various services, and DevOps’ish returned to Netlify because of the branch build command granularity. I use Hugo and future dated articles are built when the -F flag is passed. This is very helpful in ensuring the newsletter is done just how I like it.

But, since returning to Netlify, the cron job to build the site at the right time of day has been busted. I finally had to go back in the commit history and copy/pasta all that and replace everything I was doing. It should work. This shows that no matter what, if you know you can look it up, your brain won’t prioritize memorizing it. But, COME ON!!!

Tech layoffs continue across the board: Here’s the latest
Fast Company

How the 1Password CLI Makes DNS Management Easier
Jack Platten, 1Password
I might actually try and get this up and working. “Now I can run dnscontrol push –creds “!op inject -i creds.json” to inject my credentials into my template file, return it on stdout and make the changes to my domains, all without my credentials ever touching the disk. And it works on all my computers, as long as I have both the DNSControl executable as well as the 1Password command-line tool installed.”

Adopting Sigstore Incrementally
Hayden Blauzvern, sigstore
Developers that maintain their own signing keys but want to migrate to Sigstore can first switch to using Cosign to generate a signature over an artifact. Cosign supports importing an existing RSA, ECDSA, or ED25519 PEM-encoded PKCS#1 or PKCS#8 key with cosign import-key-pair --key key.pem, and can sign and verify with cosign sign-blob --key cosign.key artifact-path, and cosign verify-blob --key artifact-path.

Linus Torvalds uses an Arm-powered M2 MacBook Air to release latest Linux kernel
Andrew Cunningham, Ars Technica
“It’s something I’ve been waiting for for a loong [sic] time, and it’s finally reality, thanks to the Asahi team,” Torvalds writes. “We’ve had arm64 hardware around running Linux for a long time, but none of it has really been usable as a development platform until now.”

Docker and the OCI container ecosystem
Jordan Webb, LWN
A container is somewhat like a lightweight virtual machine; it shares a kernel with the host, but in most other ways it appears to be an independent machine to the software running inside of it. The Linux kernel itself has no concept of containers; instead, they are created by using a combination of several kernel features:

  • Bind mounts and overlayfs may be used to construct the root filesystem of the container.
  • Control groups may be used to partition CPU, memory, and I/O resources for the host kernel.
  • Namespaces are used to create an isolated view of the system for processes running inside the container.

Direct host system calls from KVM
Jonathan Corbet, LWN
“As a general rule, virtualization mechanisms are designed to provide strong isolation between a host and the guest systems that it runs. The guests are not trusted, and their ability to access or influence anything outside of their virtual machines must be tightly controlled. So a patch series allowing guests to execute arbitrary system calls in the host context might be expected to be the cause of significantly elevated eyebrows across the net. Andrei Vagin has posted such a series with the expected results.”
