yah, it's been quiet. People living their lives
ugh the server was getting pounded by spammers this morning.. seems to be mostly Ukraine IPs, which makes sense given the recent Russian spam. I banned a few swaths of Ukrainian subnets..
Another forum I'm on has been mitigating some of their spam by requiring all new users to post in a specific sub-forum that's hidden from non-new members. Not sure if that would do us any good here or if it would help alleviate server traffic.

I have a question for you guys... how would you recommend mounting a first aid kit to a vehicle's interior? We use ours semi-regularly (not just trauma related, but band-aids and such), so I don't want to have it too permanently attached. I tried 'commercial' grade velcro with double-sticky tape; pulled right off. I kind of like the velcro idea, because in a trauma situation, it'd be nice to grab and go. I'm trying to mount it to the vehicle's rear plastic trim area (so it can be accessed from the cab or rear hatch, still allowing the cargo area to be utilized without interference). Any help would be greatly appreciated... I can't seem to come up with any good ideas.
I have kits built already, and the cases have a fabric casing with 2 handles; which is why I was hoping the velcro would work... but the velcro either came off my stitch job ( , prototype, I'll have it professionally done had the other part not failed) or the tape ripped right off the vehicle's interior.
wow.. the IP ranges I banned yesterday appear to have had a dramatic affect on the new accounts being created. I was seeing 300 - 500 new accounts each day (most of them unconfirmed). Since yesterday morning the site has only had 92 new accounts created.
the security engineer role made a nice jump forward today. I was able to tell my current manager that I want to move, and I also found out that the CTO has "ok'd" the change. Next steps are my current and new manager talking about logistics and making sure that both team's needs are met where possible. Me leaving the current team is a pretty big hit against them
That's awesome, congrats! Bummer it will be a hit on your current team, but sometimes that has to happen to move up. Good luck!
I'm in the same position as you. My current manager made it a point to tell me that you have to make moves for yourself and your family, not your team. I completely get not wanting to create extra work for your current team though.
yeah, I don't want to hurt the team, but with the way things are going the team is going to be screwed at some point in this year. We lost one of our key people to another team early this year, and we aren't able to hire anyone new for the time being. If/when I leave, that's half of the team gone and that's the two strongest people on the team. In the mean time, at least one of the remaining guys has been talking about leaving for a while. At this point, if any of us leave it will cause more to leave, because we're not able to replace staff easily right now. I don't know if my current boss will try to replace me or not.. it'll be interesting to see how it goes, if anything. The whole office is going to be very negatively affected if the DevOps team becomes very crippled
But I've been doing this for 2.5 years.. will be three years at the end of this summer. I need to move on and expand my knowledge base more. I like the company and people enough, so moving to a new job within this office seems like a nice way to change things up for a while.
