Upgrading my MTBs rear disc from 160 mm to 203 mm

Personal

Turns out my cycling style when on an MTB is quite intense on the rear brakes, so much that after only 130 km of using my new bike, the rear discs were already showing signs of overheating while the front ones were still shiny and with the original silver color.     Why only resize […]

A finales de los años 50 del siglo XX, la entonces denominada “Diputación Provincial de Gipuzkoa” construyó un “Parador de Turismo” en el monte Jaizkibel, en terrenos cedidos por el Ayuntamiento de Hondarribia, según Proyecto del arquitecto provincial José María Muñoz Baroja, de 1958. Todo era parte de un esfuerzo para incentivar la recuperación económica en […]




Host-based routing with Alibaba Cloud Kubernetes (ACK)

Software Engineering

When creating a multi-deployment platform in Kubernetes, you will quickly realise how many LoadBalancer-type Services you deployed. This is usually not a problem with a self-built, self-hosted Cluster, as you manage how things gets created. The problem appears when you use managed Kubernetes solutions like Alibaba Cloud ACK, as it will create an SLB (Server […]


Testing the Alibaba Cloud Elastic Desktop Service (EDS)

Software Engineering

Thanks to being an MVP I became one of the first to test this VDI product called EDS back in February. I was such an early adopter that at the beginning I couldn’t even write a post about this, as I first needed to help Alibaba Cloud’s EDS Product Developer to test several points of the […]



Travelling Internationally While COVID-19

Personal

2020 wasn’t a normal year. Period. Australian fires, Kobe Bryant’s death, COVID-19, a massive monkey brawl in Thailand… But, yes, specially COVID-19.     Covid-19 has brought world’s aviation and tourism industries to their knees, travel restrictions are everywhere and people around the world are in lockdowns.

How And Why I Built A Remote Business

Espero os sea […]


Best Practices Dealing With Large Docker Images in Alibaba Cloud Kubernetes

Software Engineering

All applications starts in the same way, usually with a simple deployment made up of a tiny and organised Docker Container which is built and deployed within minutes. As your business grows, that tiny Docker Container doesn’t rely on a small Image anymore, and the assets built in it, the compiled code and all those […]


Lower the latency of your application in China with EIP & BGP Pro

Software Engineering

The usual problem for companies with some sort of presence in China is the platform speed for their end users located in the Mainland, this stems from the complexities deriving out the views on how the Internet should work according the Chinese authorities. Why is this? For a big part, China’s view of the internet is […]


About How A Single Character Broke Alibaba Cloud’s Container Registry

Software Engineering

You load the site… it doesn’t work. You check the console… some weird error. You examine the code… nothing specially wrong. The debugging nightmare begins! This post starts with something “too” common in programming, am I right? Yes, I am :D There is just too many cases where production breaks “just because” and turns out is […]


Adding visibility to inter-VPC connections with Alibaba Cloud Firewall Enterprise

Software Engineering

In the last article I talked about the product called Cloud Firewall, the FaaS (Firewall as a Service) from Alibaba Cloud, a great alternative and a must-go in terms of capabilities, pricing and low maintenance. And that is precisely why I’m not going to talk now about that, smart! This article will focus on one […]
