APOD: 2018 February 13 - Car Orbiting Earth

APOD Image

Last week, a car orbited the Earth. The car, created by humans and robots on the Earth, was launched by the SpaceX Company to demonstrate the ability of its Falcon Heavy Rocket to place spacecraft out in the Solar System. Purposely fashioned to be whimsical, the iconic car was thought a better demonstration object than concrete blocks. A mannequin clad in a spacesuit -- dubbed the Starman -- sits in the driver's seat. The featured image is a frame from a video taken by one of three cameras mounted on the car. These cameras, connected to the car's battery, are now out of power. The car, attached to a second stage booster, soon left Earth orbit and will orbit the Sun between Earth and the asteroid belt indefinitely -- perhaps until billions of years from now when our Sun expands into a Red Giant. If ever recovered, what's left of the car may become a unique window into technologies developed on Earth in the 20th and early 21st centuries.

Been playing with netdata this past weekend. Pretty slick system monitoring that's lightweight on system resources. It doesn't have much for looking at long term history though (at the moment at least). It does send notifications (via email, slack, etc...) which are quite handy. It currently won't replace #monitorix for me though due to the lack of history.

For anyone who using my Searx node:

I've never had any logging active for my node at https://search.jpope.org. Unfortunately, due to abuse by bots, I've had to enable nginx logging to enable fail2ban to do it's thing and block certain IP addresses that are just hammering my node. This has caused issues with it being blocked from scraping various search engines (google, qwant, duckduckgo, etc...).

I will say this much though, even though logging is now enabled, aside from trying to mitigate abuse, I will be doing nothing with the logs aside from letting logrotate compress them daily and delete them after three days.

Just posting this in an effort to be honest and transparent on the public service I run... I'm not happy about having logging active, but the search results have been fucking terrible as of late.

/u/jpope777 on One Year Ago Today The Blues Topped The Hawks 4-1 To Win The 2017 Winter Classic

That whole game for me will likely never be topped as far as hockey games go. My brothers band played during the first intermission (Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats), the band was comped 10 tickets by the NHL which, my family and I got four of. Watched the game from a party suite, and likely never again hold $2k worth of tickets in my hand again. The win by the Notes and the shithawks being fucked was just icing on the cake for me. :)

[PSA] MToD billing

Just a heads up in case someone has a mild freak out moment as I did this morning when I looked at my daily activity on my card.

Noticed a charge from Extreme Ventures LLC on my account, which I certainly didn't recognize. Did a little digging and realized that it's a Discovery Communications company. Prior to this month, the charge would be for 'Motor Trend OnDemand'.

EDIT: 2017-12-28 Just got an email from MToD stating the change, guess I could have waited for 24 hours before digging into the issue.

Email from #Startcom:

Dear customer,

As you are surely aware, the browser makers distrusted StartCom around a year ago and therefore all the end entity certificates newly issued by StartCom are not trusted by default in browsers.

The browsers imposed some conditions in order for the certificates to be re-accepted. While StartCom believes that these conditions have been met, it appears there are still certain difficulties forthcoming. Considering this situation, the owners of StartCom have decided to terminate the company as a Certification Authority as mentioned in Startcom´s website.

StartCom will stop issuing new certificates starting from January 1st, 2018 and will provide only CRL and OCSP services for two more years.

StartCom would like to thank you for your support during this difficult time.

StartCom is contacting some other CAs to provide you with the certificates needed. In case you don´t want us to provide you an alternative, please, contact us at certmaster@startcomca.com

Please let us know if you need any further assistance with the transition process. We deeply apologize for any inconveniences that this may cause.

Best regards,

StartCom Certification Authority

Startcom served me well for many years but, they fucked up and #LetsEncrypt has become so much damn better anyway.
