Don't use VPN services.

No, seriously, don't. You're probably reading this because you've asked what VPN service to use, and this is the answer.

Note: The content in this post does not apply to using VPN for their intended purpose; that is, as a virtual private (internal) network. It only applies to using it as a glorified proxy, which is what every third-party "VPN provider" does.

  • A Turkish translation can be found here, contributed by agyild.
  • There's also this article about VPN services, which is honestly better written (and has more cat pictures!) than my article.

One-line Tree in Python

Using Python's built-in defaultdict we can easily define a tree data structure:

def tree(): return defaultdict(tree)

That's it!

Traduzione in italiano dell'Hacker Manifesto
View La Coscienza di un Hacker
Questa è una traduzione in italiano del celebre Hacker Manifesto. Tutte quelle
esistenti contengono grossolani errori, perlopiù dovuti ad una carente
comprensione della materia e del periodo, o in ogni caso sono poco fedeli al
contenuto e allo spirito dell'originale. Mi auguro che questa mia traduzione non
soffra degli stessi problemi. Sail strong.

Automatically generate ansible tags of the same name for each role in a playbook
View auto_tags.py
"""
This module implements an Ansible plugin that is triggered at the start of a playbook.
The plugin dynamically generates a tag for each role. Each tag has the same name as its role.
The advantage of this is that it saves you some boilerplate, because you don't have to wrap
all tasks of a role in an additional block and assign a tag to that.
Additionally, it works automatically when you add new roles to your playbook.
Usage is exactly the same as without this plugin:
