So, in addition to finally deciding to update this page, I also got around to getting into the wonderful world of SSL certs. For a while now, I’ve been using Pi-Hole as my DNS on my home network. I set it up using instructions from Scott Helme to be able to do DNS over HTTPS using Cloudflare DNS.

My Pi-Hole has been running great. There was a section at the bottom of that tutorial to set up HTTPS for the Pi-Hole console. Since my DNS server was working great as a DNS server, I really didn’t care about having the console run as HTTPS. It was internally facing, so there’s no real point in making is secure as it would never see anything outside of my own network.

While I was at work after my shift waiting for our Game night to being (most of my co-workers get off at 5PM while I get off at 1PM) I decided I was going to give this a shot. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m kind of tired, or if it’s because the tutorial for setting up Let’s Encrypt was for Nginx (I’m running lighttpd), but I was having some difficulty getting the certs I needed (turns out it was because my Pi needed to be pointed outside to confirm the cert).

So yea, now my Pi-Hole works over HTTP, which I used instructions from here. I’m not running Ubuntu on my Pi (running Raspbian) but those instructions were for lighttpd. I was able to pull the instructions from Scott Helme to create a cron tab to renew my cert automatically. So as far as I can tell, it should work. I won’t really find for three months.

Open Letter to Donald Trump

So, if this is true, and you’ve spent four weekends out of six in Florida at your winter home, does this mean you really hate your job since you’ve spent approximately one third of your time away from the office?  I mean, I was at a job that I absolutely hated and despised for four years and only took one week of vacation and a few days.  You’ve been at a job six weeks and have taken four weekends off.  I wasn’t aware that there could be more contempt for a job than I had for that one employer.

Stop kidding yourself.  You admitted it just over four years ago.  You’re in the wrong job.  Just step down and do the rest of the world a favor and admit you made a mistake.

Cargressing in Toledo.

2016-02-27So I was out in Toledo today for an Ingress event.  While out there, I decided to do a few missions.  No point in driving two hours to only end up with around two hours work.  Took me about six hours to complete (I got lost a few times trying to find a place to park for some of the portals), but I completed it.

Here’s a picture of me on the campus.  It was a fun day.  Would definitely like to visit Toledo again, there was another Mission Mosaic that looks nice that I wouldn’t mind getting.

Hmmm….

So, I’ve been receiving a lot of email over the past year or so where some guy keeps using my gmail address without the period in it. The way gmail works, if you have i.am.awesome at gmail.com you also have iamawesome at gmail.com and every other variant you can think of with as many periods as you want. I haven’t been able to figure out who this asshole was, because I can’t contact him because the only contact information I have is an email address, and I get the fucking emails.

Until now. I just received a receipt from U-Haul in my email. Not only do I have his home address, I also have his phone number. How responsible should I be with this information, and what would be the best course of action for letting him know to get his own fucking email?

Yay

This should be fun, putting Synergy on Samus, my Raspberry Pi 2. I’m going to need to get a stand for it or find a way to get this so that it’s not sitting on its cables to stand up.

I have a massive headache, and I was hoping not being at work would help it, I was wrong.
