And so it begins, packing everything up to move to a new place. Big issue is Internet, 24/2 is apparently "superfast"...not on my planet. I get 80/20 now with standard FTTC (I'm lucky to live near the cabinet and the exchange).
Pro-tip: Internet is a basic utility, always check before moving (FTTP is coming, 100/100 and higher will "only" take ~7 years).
Work today was a hard fought victory against Traefik (you *WILL* route your dashboard to a customer URL!).
Home time was an unexpected attack by a MariaDB outage and a certbot upgrade taking all the SSL down.
But in the immortal words of the great philosopher Stewie: Victory is mine!
Even got a few snazzy DNS updates done. Nice!

This foetid tripe got dropped through the letterbox today. Baseless propaganda from a multimillionaire hoping for the UK to crash just so people will drink more and he can make more.
Really wish there was more I could do than just rant online. Complain to the ASA? Report it for causing distress? Dunno.
Oh, and pox upon CAMRA for associating with them and tacitly promoting harm on the UK.
Excitement (noun): the ironic form of "dread", often felt by system operators when half the HDDs go "Bye-bye" part way through kernel updates for no apparent reason, leading to multiple VMs going off-line.
Clench (verb): what multiple bodily sphincters do as the BIOS us checked for disc presence and kernel images reinstalled in an attempt to recover the VMs.
Back-up (verb): what is done before anything else goes wrong.
New 50p coin, get yours for 40p, worth 30p...
I found this cat gif hilarious.
Well...that was a fraught upgrade. Node was out of date, Ruby was out of date, Yarn Bundler had a version chance that broke bits. ARGH!
But we are here, rocking 2.6.5 goodness.
I wasn't worried, I have back-ups, but can't wait to shift this lot into Docker!

Your project is stalled and in danger of crashing, do you:
1. Throw more resources at the problem;
2. Arrange an extension/cancellation; or
3. Go on holiday?
This greatly depends on whether or not you're a Westminster MP.
