We basically just publish our segment from Radio Statler at HOPE, a talk on “HackOps”.



Starts at 21m32s.

I was drinking water and açai juice. Paden was drinking Diet Dr. Pepper. Jthan was drinking Booker’s Bourbon Blue Knights Batch.

  • Recordings from HOPE!
    • HackOps is taking the “hacker’s approach” towards Operations.
    • I mention the Jargon File. Specifically, the definition of hack as we use it above.
    • Core tenets of HackOps:
      • “Sometimes the/a working solution is an OK solution.”
      • “Sometimes priority precedes prettiness.”
      • Upon showing a written-out plan for the implementation, they should react with “…well, that’s stupid.”

Sysbadministration Award

In this segment, we highlight system administration mistakes. Think of them as the IT equivalent of the Darwin Awards. (1h14m27s)

Abbyy, an OCR software developer, has leaked docs through their exposed MongoDB instance.
