Yesterday I created an instance of Jenkins on Docker so that I could package up all the pre-requisites for the HPE Automation Tools plugin. I need to do this periodically due to the fact that my Jenkins instance at work isn’t connected to the internet and I occasionally need to download new and updated plugins.
I built Jenkins yesterday and presumably used one of my “disposable” passwords for the admin account in this Jenkins instance. I tried “password”, “admin”, “password1” and a few others but I couldn’t remember the password that I set only yesterday !
I decided that I needed to “hack” Jenkins. This was easier said than done because although I found the location for the password in the config files, the password is hashed out (unsurprisingly).
Rather than remove the password entirely and risk breaking Jenkins, I had a mooch about in some other config files.
By changing the <useSecurity> flag to false and restarting Jenkins,I can avoid the password prompt altogether.
My son came home from school today to show me a funny Trump-related website. Apparently it’s all the rage at school. The website lets you blow a Trumpet in Donald Trump’s face. There’s a trumpet noise and a funny animation of the President-elect’s hair blowing. I can see why this is popular in schools and (probably) workplaces…. it’s disrespectful and childishly funny.
The site (trumpdonald.org) has been developed by a Swedish Ad Agency called Animal and it’s obviously captured the world’s imagination in the last day or so. Their website hit counter is at over 100 million hits and I just had a look at the site, only to see a HTTP 503 (Service Unavailable) error.
These (earlier) images are from the Daily Telegraph. In their article which was published on 7th November the site had 9 million “Trumps” (hits)
The site has more than 100 million hits now (10th November) and the counter is still rocketing upwards, have a look if the site’s not melted yet under load…..
