Symptoms I was doing update on Kubernetes cluster I had not touch in a while when I noticed weird behaviour: the output of get command was incomplete the -o wide option had no effect on the command output Example The get nodes command is incomplete 1 2 3 4 5 ➜ .kube git:(master) ✗ kubectl --kubeconfig dropship-dev-uat get nodes NAME AGE ip-172-20-33-51.ca-central-1.compute.internal 613d ip-172-20-55-121.ca-central-1.compute.internal 628d ip-172-20-85-9.ca-central-1.compute.internal 558d The -o wide has no effect 1 2 3 4 5 ➜ .
Time to make checkpoint number 1 - it is day 11 of 30. So far - out of this 11 days I have 10 days with commits. The missing day was fully dedicated to working on presentation and documentation, that unfortunately ends up Confluence and Google Doc, not in some proper textual format (read: Markdown or RestructuredText) backed by a repository. Stuff that I worked on: some minor updates to resume (added AWS badges, fixed some typos) notes from certification courses + code fragments scripts for automation of documents / ebooks backup from iCloud to local drives Most commits went to documentation / practice code for my project “Many ways to Kubernetes” where I play with building up K8s clusters using different approaches.
This is the scariest thing I have read since spring 2018: https://hackernoon.com/im-harvesting-credit-card-numbers-and-passwords-from-your-site-here-s-how-9a8cb347c5b5 written by @david.gilbertson. It pretty sure what he describes is actually happening, has been happening before he described it and will be happening going on - just obviously not in the named module. The ecosystem of Node modules is so vast and so unstable that considerable number of project do not do enough to catch behaviour like this.
My work in last few years took my away from practical coding towards DevOps. Despite the increased role of IaaC in our DevOps, this often means living in iTerm and AWS console with interaction not being captured in any form. On writing side, lots of my output shifted from code towards writing text in Wiki’s, GoogleDocs and more and more in Slack messages. The code I write are short one-liners or small scripts with very short life span.
Today’s blog of the day is a special one. It does not deal with cloud, DevOps or distributed systems. The theme of the blog is travel, life of digital nomad and observations on life from a perspective of a smart young woman, working as Online English teacher and travelling a lot while doing so - https://bookandtravel.blog/ What makes this blog dear and interesting to me is that it’s author is my daughter Silvia.
