RE: Best Practices - Securing your Windows Server 2016 VM on Vultr
Or do I create a Vultr firewall and restrict login attempts to particular IP address ranges?
RE: Junior Dev destroys PROD DB on first day.
For those not wanting to click a Reddit link:
Today was my first day on the job as a Junior Software Developer and was my first non-internship position after university. Unfortunately i screwed up badly.
I was basically given a document detailing how to setup my local development environment. Which involves run a small script to create my own personal DB instance from some test data. After running the command i was supposed to copy the database url/password/username outputted by the command and configure my dev environment to point to that database. Unfortunately instead of copying the values outputted by the tool, i instead for whatever reason used the values the document had.
Unfortunately apparently those values were actually for the production database (why they are documented in the dev setup guide i have no idea). Then from my understanding that the tests add fake data, and clear existing data between test runs which basically cleared all the data from the production database. Honestly i had no idea what i did and it wasn't about 30 or so minutes after did someone actually figure out/realize what i did.
While what i had done was sinking in. The CTO told me to leave and never come back. He also informed me that apparently legal would need to get involved due to severity of the data loss. I basically offered and pleaded to let me help in someway to redeem my self and i was told that i "completely fucked everything up".
So i left. I kept an eye on slack, and from what i can tell the backups were not restoring and it seemed like the entire dev team was on full on panic mode. I sent a slack message to our CTO explaining my screw up. Only to have my slack account immediately disabled not long after sending the message.
I haven't heard from HR, or anything and i am panicking to high heavens. I just moved across the country for this job, is there anything i can even remotely do to redeem my self in this situation? Can i possibly be sued for this? Should i contact HR directly? I am really confused, and terrified.
RE: Ubiquiti VOIP phone systems
They are Android based IIRC. They look sharp and the pricing isn't bad. I think @scottalanmiller had gotten one to test with previously?
Yeah I think he did but didn't like them. Scott prefers Sangoma and Snom if I remember correctly.
Our experience with Grandstream is that they were insanely cheap and worked okay and died often. If you need something that is going to get beat up and won't last long anyway or is super likely to be stolen, they are great. But over time, you don't save money and they are very obviously a cheaper phone. So it's not like they were "bad", but once Yealink got withing 20% of their price, their point was really gone.
How long ago was that? I have 65 of them working great right now.....
How come Docker isn't used/talked about more?
I have been testing out docker today, and I am pretty impressed.
I have been using portainer.io for a GUI until I learn more about docker, then maybe I can lose the GUI.
I was able to launch nginx, wordpress, MySQL, nextcloud, Unifi Controller, etc all quickly and easily.
Made me wonder, why don't more people here use it? Looks like you can use it with Salt too ;) - https://amplitude.com/blog/2016/03/03/deploying-docker-saltstack/
