TL;DR Mid 2018 I switched my blog from Wordpress to Hugo. Main reason was performance and that I can use Asciidoctor to write the posts. What happened the last 18 months? I stayed with the theme I selected 2018, but I tweaked it a little bit. So I added lunr to implement searching, changed all scripts and fonts from CDN to local (privacy and tracking), updated Bootstrap 3 to 4. Working with Bootstrap was quite fun, I haven’t done a lot of HTML or CSS the last years, but the grid and css classes from Bootstrap are working without checking each change on all browsers and are responsive.
Table of Contents Find IP addresses in your network Port Scan First curl Browser and Intercept Proxy Add "Copy curl command" Test SSH Login Login as alice Get root In my spare time I like doing CTF (Capture the flag) or solving machines posted at Vulnhub. This time I started Christmas vacation with Me and My Girlfriend: 1. Extracting and importing into Vmware Workstation was straight forward, after the start we need to find the ip address of the vulnerable machine. Find IP addresses in your network One way is to use netdiscover, but then you need to enable promiscious mode for the physical network adapter.
Table of Contents Wizards Create profiles manually Installation Create ICEC Highlights database Sidebar, Touchpoint, Invite Invite with new Layout Social Sidebar I used the last day before holiday for a first installation of HCL Connections 6.5 on a test system. Wizards dbWizard.sh creates all databases for the core Connections products. I found a folder icec in Wizards/connections.sql, but tried the installation of Connections without it first. I could remember, that the installation of Connections 6.0 CR4 or CR5 didn’t run successfully, when the XCC/ICEC database was missing.
First linkdump 2019, it was a busy year until now, with a lot of new topics and tools. Here is a short list of posts and articles I have read the last weeks. A quite interesting tool (basic css) for quick web pages: kognise/water.css Devops In Devops we do a lot of scripting, often with bash. Here is a good article on pitfalls.

For GPN19 I prepared a second talk on Documentation with any Editor. The talk was based on a previous one from Froscon 13, but the pipeline tooling changed. This time there was a technical issue during the recording and so there are only the slides available, but you can still watch the video of the Froscon talk: Froscon 13: Documentation with any Editor All scripts and the complete pipeline definition can be found in the GPN19-documentation Gitlab Repository. tl;dr I use Asciidoctor for documentation for years. It’s just easy to write, has more options than Markdown and I create all kinds of output for colleagues, customers or the web, just from one source.
