Life was not peachy at the Peach Festival

Life was not peachy at the Peach Festival, by .

Not to be a total complaining whiner here, but…

We had a fucking horrible time at the Schnepf Farms Peach Festival. They should rename it The Schnepf Farms Waiting In Lines While Getting Roasted By The Hottest Possible, Earth Scotching, Desert Sun To Pay $22 For Hard Green Peaches While Your Poor Kids Melt Down And Your Spouse Gets Sun Poisoning Festival. Oh and there’s no ATM in sight.

@veganstraightedge you’re right, just placed my order! (^_^)

Securing your GitLab Pages with TLS and Let's Encrypt

By on

GitLab is on a roll!

When they introduced GitLab CI and Runners I was in. I immediately moved my blog’s repository from GitHub to GitLab and set it up to start building with my Node Hugo docker image. I didn’t switch off of my own server, however. That is until, GitLab posted about how to secure your GitLab Pages with TLS and Let's Encrypt.

A couple of nights ago I pointed switched over to GitLab Pages completely. Since I no longer had the benefit of my own nginx server configuration, I needed to put it behind CloudFlare. Now I have compression, expires headers, SSL, and automatic builds whenever I check in.

A Better Windows Command Prompt

By on

Now that I’m using Windows at work I needed a decent terminal. First step was to get Git Bash set up, which has everything I need to get by in a Windows world on a day to day basis. Second step was to figure out how to get tabs. Fortunately this has been done. Scott Hanselman did a little write up on how to get a tabbed terminal with Console2. It’s not ideal, but it does a pretty good job.
