VSHN.timer #190: Talking to Machines

10. Jul 2023

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk to different machines and see what they have to say.

1. Remember how Google used to index the web for you to find what you needed for the past 25 years? Well, as it happened in the past with many things made by Google, apparently this is no longer the case.


2. Linus Torvalds is the new master of SEO, as the Google search “cold dark place filled with sadness and despair” points to… the Linux Kernel GitHub repository.


3. Have you ever noticed those “.well-known” folders on the root of your website, in particular when requesting for SSL certificates? Ishan explains all you need to know about them.


4. A recent Reddit post showcased a series of artistic QR codes created with Stable Diffusion. But now the Stable Diffusion community has figured out how to make QR codes without custom models.


5. The most annoying-slash-funny thing to have appeared on the web lately is the obnoxious Password Game, and it has become more viral than, say, Grumpy Cat and Taylor Swift dancing “Say So” together on TikTok.


How far have you been able to go in the Password Game? Are you still using Google? Would you like to share some ChatGPT prompts tips and tricks with our readers? Get in touch with us, and see you next week for another edition of VSHN.timer.
