I ran into some troubles while deploying my article about setting up InfluxDB and had to do a fair amount of spelunking to find what ended up being a really simple fix. This article aims to collect some pointers to avoid falling into this pit in the future.
I recently set up ZNC on my server, because having an irc bouncer is awesome! This article documents the process I went through to set that up (mostly for my own reference later).
I wanted to get a place set up where I could store some quantified self data. Specifically my blood sugar results, insulin intake and the food I eat (with some nutritional info appended). We’ve been poking at using InfluxDB for a project at work, and I think it is a perfect fit for this use case. This article documents how I got that all set up.
Keeping it POSSE, kinda in reverse.
I wanted to get a place set up where I could quickly deploy basically anything to a subdomain of ryanarana.com and a coworker of mine had the same thought, and he sent me to a gist that he wrote summarizing his setting up of Dokku on DigitalOcean.
After attending the Realtime Conference this weekend, I came home bursting with inspiration to get my online identity reclaimed. There were several talks about this topic, but Amber Case’s The Open Web and the Opportunity of Now sums it up quite nicely. You should watch it!
This is the start of my venture into the Indie Web.
