Reverse proxy self-hosted services with HTTPS, Wildcard DNS, and Wildcard SSL certificate, without port forwarding and tunneled from a VPS.

Introduction Even though most of my services are hosted in Virtual Private Servers (VSP) or even dedicated servers around, which are placed in environments that are designed for providing services publicly (data centers, networks, and providers), I enjoy self-hosting some services at home, from a Synology (but this could be any computer, including a Raspberry Pi). The advantages in terms of...

SIGSOFT open science policies are live!

As previously announced, I have been developing open science policies under the SIGSOFT open science initiative for some time now. I am glad to announce that the policies are live and publicly available. The policies are self-contained and structured in a way that, with a couple search-and-replace operations, they are ready for use with any software engineering and computer science venue...

Free tools to test self-hosted Internet services

Whenever I evaluate a candidate for a new server provider, migrate to one, or explore new services, I use a series of freely available online tools for many test. I have noticed that I tend to forget some of these tools or their website. So, I collected them once and for all on this page, for future reference. Server reachability and global availability. ping.pe Pings and conducts mtr tests, with...

Effectiveness of Open Science Policies at ESEC/FSE 2019

Introduction For those who don’t know me, I have been advocating for open science (open access, open data, and open source) practices in software engineering research for many years now. Sometimes I could push my role into a more practical, hands-on one, and I could help developing better tools or platforms towards openness. Other times, my passion has been recognized to put me into more...

ineed.coffee is tracking free

Over the last years, there has been an ever increasing interest in Internet Privacy to counteract the worryingly demand  by Internet companies to track users and their behavior, often for advertising purposes. I joined the movement and, while I do not consider myself as a privacy advocate, I do provide my fair share of recommendations to family and friends. Something that was bugging me for some...

mbpfan moved to linux-on-mac organization

I have just moved mbpfan to the linux-on-mac Github organization. That means that I am formally not the owner of mbpfan anymore. That is fine, though! As explained in issue #194: I started this project back in 2012 as a way to fix some annoyances I was having with GNU/Linux on a MacBook Pro and as a way to refresh my knowledge of C. It turned out I was not the only one annoyed with the situation...

[Explained] Foundations for Open Scholarship Strategy Development

Together with a large group (32) of researchers belonging to all disciplines, we formed a committee to draft a proposal for strategies to develop open scholarship (like open science but broader to include all disciplines) at individual, group, and national level, and short, mid, and long-term. The document was developed as a response to some criticisms to the open science movement that, as a...
