681 Days

By Adrian | June 8, 2022

Wow, its been a while….. 681 days since my last post. What the hell happened? I’ve been slack. I’ve wanted to keep up the blogging and documenting cool open source stuff but its been a hectic few years. You know, pandemic and such. So heres a little recap of my life since the last post.

  • Kept up the routine of my 12Km New Years hike up a mountain (twice)
  • Sold my house just before the COVID-19 pandemic went into full swing and Melbourne got locked down for what seemed like an eternity
  • Moved house
  • Bought a block of land
  • Designed a floorplan for a new house
  • Had said house built
  • Moved house again
  • Worked a few security incidents at work
  • Learnt a lot about Splunk Phantom and SOAR
  • Started building a new homelab
  • Built a NAS using a few ODROIDS, and glusterfs
  • Played around a fair bit with Home Assistant, ESP32 devices and Grafana

Doesnt seem like a lot to squeeze in during that time. Looking back, I have no idea where the time went and I haven’t nearly done enough stuff with Open Source Security tools, or TheHive during this time.

While I started to draft up a few entries, I just never seemed to finish or polish them off and now i’m almost certain they are outdated.

Hoping this little update can give me the inspiration, I mean the kick in the pants to get into things again.

Stay tuned. Hopefully it wont be another 681 days.
