I hope my next laptop has 32GB of RAM
I got a memory exhaustion pop up on my MBP earlier. I blame spotify, chrome, and the 2 VMs I carelessly had running. #fail
Migrated terraform state from a private github repo to a private, encrypted S3 bucket. State infra is bulkheaded from main app and protected with prevent_destroy lifecycle #win #terraform #aws
and the #monitoring even triggered when I took the box down. #win
All done. Downgraded from 8GB of RAM to a more reasonable 2GB of RAM. Went from 4 cores down to one though 😱 #devops #maintenance
It looks like I am a *tad* overprovisioned. brb taking some #downtime to downsize my VM
Also, I have a google analytics snippet on the site. I have never once checked the analytics.
Moving the wiki to #AWS was a different beast. Everything is self-contained in the AMI.
sure an ELB + managed MySQL & redis + redundant frontends are "better" but I'm not sure I need the complexity
Not sure if it is worth the effort to migrate hyperbola to #AWS. Maintenance burden is pretty low. Log in maybe once a month, run an apt upgrade, and do a fresh deploy. Takes less time than a packer/terraform cycle would. #maintenance
Code that is organized in pipelines is easier to grok than code that is organized in trees #functionalprogramming
