Suricata 7 support has now been merged into LibreNMS.


When people complain about kink at pride, IMHO what they are doing is expressing how clueless they are about sexual expression in every day life, media, etc is. What they are complaining about is that it different than what they like and how others must confirm to their interests.


w00t! Getting close to finally finalizing updating Suricata bits for LibreNMS.


So just got called a MAGA troll for pointing out policing in places like Chicago and NYC is racist as fuck and if the politicians don't care about the racist policing they sure as fuck don't care about those same police attacking people in the LGBT community.

Yes... MAGA trolls are so prone for demanding police reform and complaining about racism etc.

Fucking hell, I so can't stand pro-fascist pro-Democratic tools.




So. I got called a "homelab waaior" for having wanting math for load balancing to be fast, efficient, easy to tweak, and predictable. And for pointing out that the math in question is largely integer math and been fairly settled for decades.

Ahhh... yes... the dude who literally specializes in system monitoring could not possibly understand anything about this...

Haha. I must say, this made my day.



I think I've come up with the perfect way to describe AI... "a Markov chain with delusions of grandeur"


So hoppscotch has come out and proved it a great example of what is wrong in the opensource community. Also proving themselves to be massive leeches. The concept of difference between personal and enterprise is bullocks in this sphere and only furthers to fuck over everything from a security stand point.

Sevoris reshared this.

Has me wondering if there is any good open source alternatives to this or if it is time to fork it.

Wow, seriously? Authentication servers for an API system are inherently and always commercial?

Yeah, this looks pretty bad.




W00t! New Borgbackup and DHCP stuff merged into LibreNMS. Need to get around to finishing Suricata now. Thinking of reworking NFS for fun and converging the Linux and FreeBSD bits for it.

Sadly this won't mean the death of Nextcloud Mail as they still can't admit their own home rolled webmail is utter garbage.



So was sitting down and comparing borgbackup and urbackup features when I noticed apparently the peps behind urbackup don't use Github issues or anything else even remotely close to sane. Apparently they use Atlassian Jira for issue reporting. This made the choice easy, borgbackup all the way.

Fuck everything about Atlassian and JIRA, speaking as some one who has had their insanely slow and incompetent SW inflicted upon them before.



So it is looking like BackupPC is sadly dead.

4.4.0 has been a buggy non-functional release for nearly for like 3 years now.



tonights plans... beer and coding... and finding something funny to listen to


Blargs. Looks like I am going to have to do a massive rewrite for Suricata::Monitoring for making the most out of Suricata 7. Wrote it original for 7 and finally having a chance to sit down and look at new stuff for 7 and lots of new stuff to add.


So Ixchel now has Suricata config generation working. Just need to test the Sagan config gen and xeno_build stuff.


W00t! Since App Data got added to LibreNMS, I am now counting 3 items using it I've had nothing to do with. Actually maybe 4. I forget if I did the update for one of them or not or if that was some one else.

That said awesome to see it being used.
