From nginx to traefik (and solving X-Forwarded-For)

I recently switched my home setup from nginx to traefik. I had to get used to the new configuration styles and weird doc style of traefik, but suffice to say, I am happy at the end results. Traefik ships with SNI, allowing me to snoop the connection and prevent unauthorized access to my file server. […]

How do you repent from sin?

How do you repent from sin? How does one get all of their sins forgiven? These questions often fill the minds of those who have sin. Perform a search query on a popular web indexing service and you will find many interpretations of these questions. I was surprised at the results from the Church of […]

TIL: Zoom has captions

The Zoom application has built in AI captions for various languages. It is great for those hard of hearing to read the words that are spoken. In other news, you can select the spoken language to be in Finnish, speak in English, and get wonderfully funny sentences in Finnish.

Who is the author in AI-generated content?

As AI tools are becoming more frequent, many have found interesting use cases. Some are using AI tools to publish children’s books or other creative works primarily done by humans. However, when one publishes a work that was generated by AI, who is the author of the work? Should a notice be included or a […]

Personal Tech Debt

This past week I have been able to traverse down the rabbit hole of personal tech debt. After a week’s work, I think I was able to get to the bottom and give everything an updated timestamp! All kidding aside, here were some of the projects I was able to revisit: Kubernetes Cluster My k8s […]

Speaker Windows

I have been working on a personal project to organize my preaching illustrations. Whereas one could use a tool such as Notion, Evernote, or Obsidian, I have had a desire to keep my data in an easy to use interface. I should not have to spend 10 minutes to find that illustration I need. Plus, […]

What will cause you to change?

“I am right. Therefore, you must change.” This is a common sentiment among anyone who holds an opinion. Major convincing arguments are then given as to reasons why others must change to your point of view. It is proud to assume that you have all of the right answers to everything. To make such a […]

Three goals in Bible Reading

Recently, I evaluated why I take time out of my day to read the Bible. I have heard that the Bible has one singular meaning. If that is true, then reading the Bible through once is sufficient. However, those that promote singular meaning also advocate for daily Bible reading. This seems like a logical fallacy, […]

Link sharing in the blog era

I just remembered how painful it was to share content through a blog to friends. Social media, such as Twitter, solved that issue. I do not want to attempt trying to remember my password (Does the site even exist anymore?) Anyway, I said all of that to say this: I know where both of […]

Extension to make Twitter more usable

After setting up an RSS reader and a bridge to pull in tweets, I no longer access Twitter. If there is interesting content, I click the link on my RSS reader and comment directly without visiting the Twitter homepage. If I were a more regular user of Twitter, I think I would use this extension: […]

Depression and Anxiety

This morning I read from one of the people I follow a short, concise list of comparing Depression and Anxiety. It is quite good to read over, but I think it is quite lacking in its explanation. Primarily limited from the 280 character posts on Twitter. I feel like I have authority to speak on […]


It is very ironic – to me at least – that when I visit on a Chromebook, I am presented with a notification to install Google drive. This is a Chromebook. Google apps are loaded by default. This includes Google drive. I just prefer the web experience over the native file explorer.

2023 – Return to the Syndicated Stone age (RSSa)

The new year has already been dubbed by some in the tech world as the year of RSS, meaning people will ditch social media for the consumption-style RSS feed. It is the same concept of switching from a smartphone to a mobile phone. You might be thinking, “Why would anyone go backwards in technology?” Everyone […]

I think I will keep LastPass

LastPass was recently hacked and the hacker was able to steal keys from a developer which had access to the company’s backup files. In the backup files, the hacker could use the decryption keys he stole from the developer to create something like:,<plaintext_username>,<hashed_password> I can assume my data has been leaked. I am a […]
