Did my first ever parkrun this morning along the western promenade in Edinburgh. Really busy with hundreds of runners - amazing they can draw so many people every week. Personal best 5K of 24:02 which I'm quite pleased with. Will definitely go back and do more.
Grrr! Another bike chain destroyed by salt. This one only three months old. It never used to be like this - there's been some qualitative or quantitative change in the salt used on the roads in winter. Even more annoying is we've had virtually no snow and little frost so far this year. I am tempted to send the city council a bill.
Finally setup rsnapshot on my work system. Thought I'd lost half a day's work this morning. Getting it going is pretty easy, and this page on the Arch wiki is a nice walkthrough appropriate to any systemd-based Linux https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Rsnapshot
Ok, working without TLS, that's enough for today. Tomorrow I need to hook up a Heath Robinson patchwork of configuration plumbing so my automated test can
1. Generate a self-signed cert
2. Run OpenLDAP in docker using the cert
3. Import the cert to a Java keystore
4. Run the app under test in docker, configured to use the just-generated keystore as its truststore.
Switched my work Arch system to the LTS kernel today as the kernel updates were coming a bit too frequently. Got distracted and rebooted without rebuilding grub.cfg though - bit of a panic but managed to boot from a USB, mount the partition and edit it by hand, which was enough to boot and rebuild it properly. Phew!

any more than software that runs in a VMWare virtual appliance is crossplatform. It's not even significantly lighter weight than doing that.
Taking your platform with you doesn't make your software crossplatform.
