Still chugging along

Thought better add a post as proof of life after not posting anything for a while. Still chugging along just don’t have much interesting to say at the moment. Things done over the last few weeks include:

  • Avoiding adding duplicate users to a system with very similar names, probably spelling mistakes, using soundex in mariadb and levenshtein distances.
  • Splitting chat over two servers for improved resilience.
  • Altering database storage when syncing after server nearly filled up its disk with logs.
  • Adding timings log to Coldfusion/Lucee site to try and identify whats causing occasional mystery slowdowns.
  • Rescuing an abandoned WordPress install that had been neglected and fallen over.
  • Hardening DMARC policies after someone tried to impersonate shop owners emails.
  • Adding customer feedback gathering to a site so they can gather customers views of them.
