Various things I am interested in on a semi-regular basis.

After 3 years of using Hexo as my Content Management System for VulpineCitrus, I have finally decided to adopt a more complex system.

I have been looking for decent CMS software for two years, as Hexo had become more of a technical debt than a software I could realistically keep maintaining in s...

I like messing things up in networks. Sending weird packets into the wild and seeing what happens is quite funny, especially when something breaks, but, sometimes even, when nothing does. I like hacking in the primary sense of the word: messing around and using stuff that was not intended for that p...

I have been using Rust on and off for the past five years or so, first picking it up around the time release 1.0 dropped. I then seriously learned the language in 2019, and, thanks to coding events such as Advent of Code, found a reason to make (arguably) beautiful code that trained me to make...

This post is mostly a story about my new VM server setup. However, it features a fun twist that reminds me how important it is to consider the layers upon layers of added security tools that exist in Linux that could interfere with a normal setup.

The Context

Around a month and a half ago I got...

This year, like the last, I participated in Advent of Code, an online event where a new algorithmics puzzle is unlocked every day of december before and on the 25th. For each day, the same puzzle idea yields two small exercises, one typically easier than the other.

I chose Rust, like last year...

I have recently had the pleasure to acquire a new piece of equipment for one of the servers that I manage in one of our university clubs. Long story short, we were on the verge of a bottleneck happening in our infrastructure at the network interface of the aforementionned server, and decided to inve...

The monitoring stack in my home network depends on a lot of pieces of software all configured to be up and ready every time I have to reboot the gateway (a 8GiB Raspberry Pi 4). One piece of software who, for a while, did not play nice was Prometheus.

(For those just looking for my answer, it's...

I'm coming close to a year of VulpineCitrus being up and running, and over the course of a year it has been a tremendously useful tool for me to deploy so many services that have changed my (and to an extent others') daily routines. It has also been a great way to learn a lot of technological solu...

A few days ago, I launched a website called “Vulpine Citrus”, meant to act as my front end with the rest of the world. Before that, I used to run a lot of my personal services on a server shared with a friend. After I bought my domain name, and VPS, I decided to begin moving my services onto my new...

This is the official launch of Vulpine Citrus, my own personal web site! Whenever I find something interesting to talk about, or want to show a cool thing I’ve learned, it will end up here.

A few years ago, my journey into coding led me to the dark alleys of GNU Assembly. I quickly realized that the difficulties of Assembly made it almost impossible for me to use it in my daily coding life.

When it takes you three hours to reimplement strlen correctly, and you're used to processi...
