New (Old) Look for the Blog

Well, so much for that. After trying poison for a while, I just didn’t like it. I did love the mermaid diagrams though… Oh well. I went back to an oldie but a goodie… papermod. Clean, simple, dark mode. The only thing it was missing was those damn mermaid diagrams. Of course, that was easy enough to add.

New Look for the Blog

Another day, another template… this time I’m trying out poison. One of the neat things with this template is the incorporation of Mermaid diagrams sequenceDiagram participant Alice participant Kamailio participant Bob Alice->>Kamailio: INVITE Kamailio->>Alice: 100 Trying Kamailio->>Bob: INVITE Bob->>Kamailio: 180 Ringing Kamailio->>Alice: 180 Ringing Bob->>Kamailio: 200 OK Kamailio->>Alice: 200 OK Alice->>Kamailio: ACK Kamailio->>Bob: ACK Alice->>Kamailio: BYE Kamailio->>Bob: BYE Bob->>Kamailio: 200 OK Kamailio->>Alice: 200 OK Seems like a pretty awesome feature for someone who blogs a bit about SIP, no?...

I Have Left Twitter

I’ve learned a few things from Michael White throughout the time we’ve been friends. The most important being to make a mantra of Happy Wife. Happy Life. When I first joined twitter in 2008, it was a fun way to socialize with people from all over the globe. Twitter was gaining popularity within the open source telecom world and many of us would share posts, opinions, photos, whatever. The length of the tweet was perfect for sharing short thoughts and back then, there weren’t a ton of people on the platform....

Git Repo with Custom SSH Key

I love git. Love it. I’ll save my love for Gitea for another day (TL;DR: Gitea is awesome). Anyway, a lot of git repositories allow you to use ssh keys as authentication. This is a great thing, but of course, sometimes can be difficult to manage if lets say one repo for work uses one key and one that you use for a side project uses a different ssh key....

Moving to Hugo

After spending many years on Wordpress, I’ve decided to make a change in the software running this site. First of all, I have absolutely nothing against wordpress. I’ve used wordpress for well over 15 years at this point. There’s a simple reason why so much of the web is powered by wordpress – it’s clean, easy to run/maintain, and there’s great templates available. You can literally get started in 5 minutes....

Kamailio World (online) 2020

This has been a really different year. After attending ITEXPO back in February, I was looking forward to a great visit to Berlin for Kamailio World. Attending conferences is one of my favorite parts of working with open source VoIP software, like Kamailio, and to not have these personal connections to community is definitely offsetting. After the in-person conference was cancelled, a virtual Kamailio World was held this past September 2-3 to celebrate the 19th birthday of Kamailio....

Any day now…

Been a fun Summer and early Fall, and although our trip to Europe should have included alcohol, we made the best of it. Yes, we’re both a little bigger than when we made the announcement, but as the due date rapidly nears… we remain excited for what shall come. Yeni “enjoying” some Pad Thai
