On Mental Health

Who was I trying to impress? I'm no fighter at all right now. I'm barely holding myself from exploding over a little emotion. Why then am I trying to tell myself every time that I should fight?

On Memories

In our digital age, we forgot how to forget. One could refer to the entire and precise chat history of what happened years ago, whether it’s pleasant or disturbing. Sometimes I was even thinking about a device that would record and index what’s happening around precisely, to bridge the gap between digital and real.

Cautiously Happy

The week of Transgender Day of Visibility is going very mixed for me.

This is gonna be hard

I haven’t had much progress on Thursday and Friday. Yet, at the end of the day, I rather do less than be dead-tired.

It’s gonna be a long journey

I feel that the only option I have now is a proper long-term medical solution. Sadly, it will take months, and I will look for counseling in meanwhile to cope with withdrawal. I might be lucky and receive an emergency or bridging prescription.

The Next Day

This all doesn’t look any better. In fact, I feel sad.

I can’t self-medicate anymore

It’s happened on Monday the 23rd of March 2020. An online pharmacy that allowed me to order my HRT without prescription went out of business due to COVID-19.

Motion detection for D-Link DCS-930L Camera

It's not about configuration, and not about integration, so probably it's about hardware support.

Notes about Home Assistant and HomeKit

Well, it's complicated. I run bunch of outdated hardware, and it is not working as smooth as I expected from Apple. So either I need to upgrade, or I have to research and hack a bit.

About Salt

It so happened that I come to Lehi, UT for two days, and colleague of mine said that SaltStack HQ is located just half mile away from Mirantis office. Here I should said, that I used to manage pretty big OpenStack installation using Salt back in Yandex, and right now I'm back to using it in TCPCloud (which was acquired by Mirantis recently). So I decided to come to SaltStack HQ to have a conversation with core people to get the idea which is meant behind all the stuff.

Road to TSDB

People say knowledge is power. If so - a good measurement is a key for obtaining this knowledge. I'm going to find out the way how to measure system of any size. The problem is: docs and blog have no contents around how many resources you need to allocate, just some measurements to extrapolate. My goal is to dig into some of off-the-shelf tools to provide the data on resource planning for your The Measurement System.

Support for SR-IOV

User should be able to deploy compute nodes with dedicated network interface into SR-IOV mode, then create direct-attached port and boot a VM with it.

Support for DPDK

In order to get as close to wire-line speed as possible for virtual machines, we want to install and utilize OVS with DPDK on some compute nodes.

Compacting PKI Token in keystone

PKI tokens was too fat in big clouds, and it was a real PITA. I've replaced it with Fernets, but here is a story behind it.
