Another personal projects update.

Jthan phrase of the episode: “[something] goes horribly right.”

Just the Tip


Starts at 22m20s.

I was drinking water. Paden was drinking water and Dr. Pepper. Jthan was drinking mountain goat urine (New Belgium Mountain Time Lager, the same as S6E3).

  • Personal projects update
    • Paden created a Docker swarm out of Raspberry Pis (for wikis, home documentation, etc.)
      • He also set up backups
      • He plans on setting up Kerberos and/or LDAP for unified login
    • Jthan has been reworking his personal infra.
      • He has three different services that need MySQL. He consolidated all of them into a single DB server.
      • He also is planning on setting up LDAP (even though he gave me a hard time for it?).
      • He is redoing his backups.
        • And wants to do object-backed storage with Borg.
          • See the errata for further info.
        • And wants to give Wasabi a try.
      • He still thinks (as do I) that AWS pricing can be easily beat by many other providers.
    • I haven’t been able to really work on personal projects. I’ve been too busy with home improvement/repairs and $dayjob.

15 Clams

In this segment, Jthan shares with you a little slice of life. The title is a reference to this video. (2m16s in)

Starts at 51m35s.

Jthan talks about s3gof3r, which streams data to an S3 bucket in parallel.


  • Jthan talked a bunch about this.
    • Not, apparently, this.
  • The stipulations for the SFW episode follow:
    • The first host to break the SFW bet donates 75USD to a charity of their choice
    • The second host to break the bet (if any) donates 50USD to a charity of their choice
    • The last host to break the bet (if any) donates 25USD to a charity of their choice
    • Each further infraction incur an additional 5USD donation per occurrence per host.
    • We’re also doing it inebriated. We’ll do one shot when we start pre-meeting, one shot before our countdown, and one at the beginning of the topic.
  • Jthan wants to donate to ACS.
  • Paden wants to donate to a prostate prevention charity.
  • I’m not sure which charity I’d donate to but probably something to do with children’s health.
  • We also have some game nights coming up.
  • I should have known better; we erroneously attributed the Signal CEO as Travis Goodspeed. The CEO is actually Moxie Marlinspike. (To be fair, I confuse them all the time but Travis is more Wi-Fi security research; Moxie is more general security.)
  • Jthan tested restic again. It’s still, and I quote, ass.
    • It requires a lot of manual repeated fixing.
  • Jthan wants to try Kopia at some point, but we all agree it’s not mature enough yet to take seriously.
  • We mention that turnkey solutions are often anything but.
