Post sources for SysAdmin work!
This looks like an interesting host: https://prgmr.com/xen/
Testing IPv6 functionality: http://ready.chair6.net/
Apparently my DNS does not support IPv6, any reccomendations for DNS with IPv6 support?

I learned today that systemd will log stdout and stderr for any process that it manages. This is handled via journalctl, and can be used for things like server logs in place of writing a per-application logging solution.

So meltdown and spectre look pretty terrible. I hope that Intel gets hit with a class-action lawsuit over this. Hilariously I'm running Ubuntu 17.04 on my server so I won't even get a patch. Based on my understanding this won't be a huge deal on my server, but from now on I'll be sticking to LTS releases. I was planning to upgrade when 18.04 comes out, so I guess that I'll just wait until April. This way I don't need to upgrade twice in two months.
