Adding Google Charts Integration

Yesterday I posted about Cloudflare’s cache , and if you didn’t notice (or read far enough down), there’s actual pie charts with data in them for visualization.

Yeah, so now I can add the Google Charts API and draw charts on any page that I like, and the best part is that it was surprisingly simple to do that.

Complying With the Latest Security Policies

Modern websites and modern browsers support a wide range of security features to communicate specifically what is and is not allowed to be loaded, executed, or sent over the network. Being the person that I am, I’m going to comply with the latest guidelines and best practices as much as I can.. and it’s a headache.

Improving My Site With Cloudflare Workers and Amazon S3

So as of now, anything much more over 1 MB I’m not going to take up space on all my devices hosting - I’ll just offload it to someone else. And how do I get it back? JavaScript.

No wait, I’m actually serious. As of now, I essentially have Cloudflare as a CDN that’s backed by the Amazon S3 storage service. Posts such as The one about light balance have everything but the featured image… not here anymore.

So I have no doubt, given Cloudflare’s metrics, that plenty have seen this site. They’ve probably also experienced one of the longest load times in existence, default fonts, and broken icons. Well, I just about fixed it. The Problem There were two main problems: The first is that a few directories referenced in the template didn’t exist by default. For example, /fonts when the actual contents are at static/fonts. This has an easy fix, we call that a symlink. Continue reading

The First Non-Apache Webserver

So, I’ve finally done it… I’ve broken free of my Apache-based shackles! To this point, all tdstoragebay.com servers are running Apache httpd as the webserver, with one minor exception: plantuml.tdstoragebay.com runs Tomcat out of necessity: PlantUML is distributed as a WAR file, which requires Tomcat to deploy. That aside, this site here, teknikaldomain.me, is not running Apache. Here, we’re in the realm of the ever-famous Nginx. But Why? Simple: It’s easier, and broadening my experience. Continue reading

For those of you that do not know, haproxy is an amazing little piece of kit that can proxy HTTP and arbitrary TCP connections. It’s also so customizeable that I’m practically using it as my main NAT to my network, and do indeed refer to it internally as the “border gateway.” With one exception (SSH, more on that later), everything that comes into the TD-StorageBay network, yes, that includes this site too, passes through that one process.
