A mention in a podcast and a few comments at work got me interested, just how many ssh login attempts is every single PC, webcam, smartdevice, being subjected to?
A quick check of the fail2ban(1) logs on my home PC and I found that for yesterday alone there are 266 failed login attempts from all over the world. Poking around with a little awk(1) and some shell and I find:
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
