In this episode we talk about AIF-NG and other sideprojects we’ve all been working on.

News

Notes

Starts at 17m50s.

I was drinking water. Paden was drinking water as well. Jthan was drinking a Red Eire from Westminster Brewing Company.

  • I talk about a project I just released, AIF-NG (which is basically Kickstart / preseed for Arch Linux).
    • Python 3 and XML driven
    • Has a configuration file generator
    • Works well with iPXE
    • Announced here and here
    • I mention this article and the python script that automates that is here.
  • Other hosts’ projects rundown! (22m47s)
    • Jthan is working on a total rewrite of the (currently hideous) games.square-r00t.net
    • He’s also working on the hackathon
      • In which he discovers just how much of a PITA AWS is.
    • He also is doing a lot of freelance work
    • Paden is setting up his homelab and network testbed
      • There’s a lot here- too much to type up! I’d recommend listening to the episode and seeing just how many things are on Paden’s TODO.
  • Planned projects (45m16s)
    • Jthan wants to redo his site in flask
      • He also wants to do a gallery for his pottery
      • And backups
    • Paden is working on what he mentioned before, and wants to implement high-availability
      • Also CISCO networking
    • I need to finish setting up the actual dedicated game server configs for the above-mentioned project
      • And I need to give square-r00t.net a facelift
      • And I need to clean up AIF-NG
      • AND I REALLY NEED TO SET UP THE SHOP FOR SYSADMINISTRIVIA

Sysbadministration Award

In this segment, we highlight system administration mistakes. Think of them as the IT equivalent of the Darwin Awards. (53m32s)

Handbrake was compromised (and there’s a personal account of someone that was hit).

Errata

  • The config generator tool for AIF-NG is done and documented (but not documented upstream yet).
  • Jthan mentions Matt; this is his twitter.
  • I mention FreeNAS and pfSense as the only embedded BSDs I know of- I discovered that there’s also OPNsense (an alternative to pfSense) that is the sort of spiritual successor to m0n0wall.
  • I was right. Jthan did, in fact, originally mention that FreeNAS is a storage appliance:

13:49:20< jthan> storage appliances are fucking trash
13:49:21< jthan> is what
13:49:29< jthan> this is why I don’t think I’d ever use FreeNAS

to which I replied: 14:18:55< r00t^2> jthan: then FreeNAS isn’t an appliance either

  • Dang it, Jthan was right – I never gave him a login to the shop beta.

16:07:00 < r00t^2> jthan: what’s your paypal?
