3/28 – I found a good article that walks through the steps for deploying an ingress controller in Kubernetes to terminate SSL and forward the connection to my container running node.js. I’m going to work on this this weekend and update the blog! https://dgkanatsios.com/2017/07/07/using-ssl-for-a-service-hosted-on-a-kubernetes-cluster/ 3/31 – Ok, this article above is for creating internal/test certificates.

Through my work at Microsoft, I recently became interested in a technology paradigm called containers and then I fell in love with a particular implementation of it called Kubernetes. This new found love was very intriguing, but there is a lot about it that I don’t yet know. Over the past 18 years, I’ve used […]
While it’s great to browse for the music you want, sometimes you want some suggestions – and that is why i have the various album covers on the music page. However, since redesigning the site, I hadn’t wired it up to actually show you the album… Well, that has changed! Now, you can click any […]
it was about a year ago that my friend, Shawn, sugggested that i have a dark theme for my site…and i remember saying, “what?!?!” Well, i reluctantly made an optional dark theme for the site – but I didn’t use it. then, over the past year, I started seeing dark mode in more and more […]
today i turn 38! and dreaddontdie turns 18! i thought I’d spend most of the day working on the site and being creative. the big thing i plan to work on today is adding full album streaming – instead of the song by song that is there today. Update: it’s done! for those who don’t […]
With the holiday break coming up, I’m looking excited about having some time to work on the site. I have plans to update some things behind the scenes (moving the site to containers running on kubernetes) and add/improve features for photos and music. Stay tuned!
I’ve started working on redesigning and rebuilding dreaddontdie music… my music site that I built years ago to stream music from my personal 90Gb library. It will take some time to bring back all the features that I had before, but I’m looking forward to making the new one better than before.
The homepage for dreaddontdie.com was designed to be very visual and give you a quick snapshot of my photo collection. However, it lacked the ability to look at a single photo in a larger view if you found one that was interesting. Well, that has changed! Click on any photo on the homepage and it […]
Like, real news…on the site now. I’m pulling RSS feeds from google news, the verge, arstechnica and other places to new “news” section here on dreaddontdie.com.
Notice anything new?! Probably not…but now the entire site is running on Node.js! Along with the new Node.js backend, I revamped the development and deployment processes: Using Visual Studio Code for Mac as my editor (instead of Visual Studio Community Edition on Windows) Bitbucket.org for code repository (instead of keeping it local on my Windows […]
dreaddontdie has always been an website written on .NET and hosted on Windows. That is about to change. I’m moving the site over to node.js. I want to do this for a few reasons: I use a Mac on a daily basis and I run a Windows VM for .NET development. I want a native […]
In addition to displaying random images from a collection on the homepage, it now changes a random photo on the page every 10 seconds to another image from the collection. First, I created the timer and it will call the changeImg function every 10 seconds (10000 milliseconds): var myTimer = setInterval(changeImg, 10000); Then I get […]
I just added a feature to the site that randomly places the background images on the home page…instead of the same image appearing in the same spot all the time. It was something I wanted to add for a while and I’m so happy to have it. for the technical folks, it is all done […]
Most people are familiar with the term “writers block” and I feel that extends to the entire field of creative people. I’ve found that hitting a bug during software development can either push you to work on it non-stop or it can push you away from the project altogether for a period of time due to […]
