FOSDEM 2019 videos

my old colleague suggested Console oriented services: wttr.in, cheat.sh, rate.sx, super cool.

I always interested in tui stuffs, but never think of using curl and service endpoints to do cool things like this

I'm so pissed on modern websites, they all so damn slow when browsing with my 5-year old laptop.

at first I thought it was the browser, so I installed Midori but found most of sites are broken. then I tried download firefox 28 but found no add-ons available, finally I switched to Pale Moon, it is good

but it's not the browser problem, websites are slow.

actually I'm going full text mode:

update /etc/default/grub:


and run

$ sudo update-grub
$ sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target

also tweak the console fonts:

$ sudo dpkg-recofigure console-setup

then reboot.

once under text mode, sudo service lightdm start will start gui again.

to undo:

update /etc/default/grub



$ sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target

k3s - Lightweight Kubernetes by rancher

single binary to start a k8s, pretty cool, no configurations

it uses sqlite3 instead of etcd, containerd as runner, and seems it supports tls and helm chart as well
