# Graylog, and the Syslog Protocol, Explained

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.

# New Feature: Post Labels

Now you might not see this too much since I plan to use the feature sparingly, categories and tags are both capable of sorting everything to a satisfactory level, but I’m using this thing that I just made to add extra little labels, which have a few cool uses.

# TDNET 2.0: the New Homelab (Part 2)

Part 2 of 2

Now, this is the second part of a two-part post, that one covered the tech and background, and this will be the tour. So, let’s begin, running this one front-to-back.

# TDNET 2.0: the New Homelab (Part 1)

Part 1 of 2

A first for me, this post is going to come in two parts. This one will cover the tech behind everything, and the second will actually be a new network tour. I’ve finally finished one of the biggest, if not the biggest project I’ve undertaken in a while: overhauling pretty much my entire network.

# Self Hosted Password Manager: bitwarden_rs

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.

# Email Filtering With Sieve

Sieve, defined in RFC 5228, is a programming language constructed for the express purpose of filtering email messages. And, fun fact, on a Sieve-enabled server, it can do a lot of work.

# Shortening My URLs With tekdmn.me

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.
