Now I know I’ve talked about sitemap.xml before, but quick summary: that’s an XML file that has a list of every (public) URL on your site, to make it easier for crawlers to index your entire site since that list (or, map) lays it out. Well as an XML file, it can take XML style sheets, in a format called XSLT, short for XSL Transformations, short for eXtensible Stylesheet Language. Yes, it’s XML all the way down. But, if you’ve looked at my sitemap, you’ll see I’ve gone and done it. This is how.

Graylog, and the Syslog Protocol, Explained

2021-02-19 9 min read Tech explained Teknikal_Domain Unable to load comment count

So if you’ve tried enterprise log management systems, you’ve likely heard of Syslog. If you haven’t, Syslog, is, well, a protocol designed to allow multiple hosts to send their system logs over the network to some other server where they can be analyzed and stored. It’s another one of those weird UDP protocols, and this one is actually stupid simple, even in both of the commonly used forms! Oh, we’ll also cover the one piece of software that I use that handles Syslog — Graylog, which by itself is also really cool.

You familiar with BitWarden? It’s another one of those password manager services that comes as a browser extension or standalone program, and allows for things like storing TOTP keys, generating new, secure passwords, and all that fun stuff. Except unlike others that I’ve seen, it has one difference: You can self-host an instance. Though, their self-hosted options look a little lacking unless you want to give them money. Well as it happens with an open sourced project, someone decided to create a BitWarden API compatible server, thus creating bitwarden_rs. And this is why it’s cool.

Has anyone noticed that I’ve been giving out URLs of the form tekdmn.me and not teknikaldomain.me? Well, not only did I buy another domain that’s just a shorter version of this one, but it’s also, at the moment, the singular domain I have that’s 100% serverless. How? Cloudflare, obviously.
