  1. Distelli

    I decided to give Distelli a try for my website. If you integrate AWS with your Distelli account it will give you the option to spin up EC2 instances with the Distelli agent installed. I decided to test that out and created 2x t2.nano instances. I moved these behind an ELB (though the workflow feature can do this for you) and did a test deployment. It was pretty easy and gives me a good base project to play with.


  2. Using Alfred

    A couple weeks ago I toyed with the idea of using Alfred instead of Keyboard Maestro for snippets and some simple automation. If I can reduce the number of apps I'm running by one, why not? I bought the powerpack for Alfred a long time ago and I setup a workflow named "Start my day" that updates brew, atom, and oh-my-zsh then starts up the apps I use on a typical day at work. When I copied my snippets over I disabled Keyboard Maestro and so far I haven't needed to start it for anything. Looks like I can get by with just Alfred.


  3. CI/CD for my blog

    I've been working on getting a full CI/CD pipeline working for my blog. I think I've finally nailed it and hopefully I'll have the time to write a post about it soon!


  4. The Terrible Thing That Happens

    I just finished reading another bizarro fiction novel from Carlton Mellick III named "The Terrible Thing That Happens". Like his other stories this one has a lot of violence and a little sex thrown in to a post-apocalyptic world where the only source of food is a haunted grocery store. It was a really quick read and while it isn't my favorite of his books I enjoyed it. I loved the cover art by Ed Mironiuk and every time I pick up one of his books I really want to "see" the characters with my own eyes. As unlikely as it is, I think his books would make for some fun TV.


  5. Back to blogging

    I have been playing with some tech that's new to me and I want to start writing about it so that I can share my experiences. Look for some articles on AWS ECS, Docker, Chef, Inspec (really love this stuff!), and much more. My new site is hosted on AWS ECS and it was pretty painless to setup.
