web dev, system administration, recommendations welcome!
anyone know a good resource that concisely explains characteristics of good monitoring/alerting setups for devops/sysadmins? e.g. clear, actionable messages with contextual info, in as few locations/channels as reasonable, high SNR, etc?
i feel like i've read on this topic before but nothing i can find or recall specifically rn, and i think my target audience needs a better writer than me, and/or an appeal to authority, to get the message

Another Friday tool drop from me: https://git.sr.ht/~fincham/sockkit
SockKit is a Python module that makes it easy to make any weird IO in to a SOCKS proxy. Just implement connect(), recv() and send()!
Yes this is part of something bigger coming soon…
Kudos again to my employer Pulse Security (https://pulsesecurity.co.nz/) for facilitating this work.
Ursula K Le Guin, on tech workers:
"Real power goes to waste. Every wizard uses his art against the others, serving the men of greed. What good can any art be used that way? It's wasted. It goes wrong, or it's thrown away. Like slaves' lives. Nobody can be free alone. Not even a mage. All of them working their magic in prison cells, to gain nothing. There's no way to use power for good."

As promised, here's another Friday tool drop. This time it's a Docker build environment to turn popular Python hacker tools (like impacket) in to AppImage bundles so they can be run anywhere. Grab it from https://git.sr.ht/~fincham/tool-bundles.
And thanks again to my lovely employer Pulse Security for facilitating this work!
Just finished porting the remaining modules of my wiki to assembly, removed the old C codebase.
My friend needed a real mode DOS executable to delay for 2 seconds, so here you all go as well: https://human.sova.st/delay.com
Tadaa, a #pinenote showing its own schematics. It seems like the size of the pages of schematics is almost perfect for this.
And I will go, I don’t know where, forever.
