    I'm just fucked off... All it looks like they've done is push through the same shit they had spent weeks and months bickering over.

    I'm done with it, the country is run by scum who don't know what an actual days work is like.

    This is something I put together - https://i.imgur.com/3AhpgUC.png

    This just shows how fucking out of touch they are. I understand it is set by the IPSA, but who are these?

    Looking at page 9 of their annual report (http://www.theipsa.org.uk/media/184891/annual-report-and-accounts-2017-2018.pdf) it looks like a load of fluff, but also, from a quick CTRL+F through the document I can't see them ever state a reason for a pay increase.

    Looking through the previous ones I also can't see any justification for increasing MP wages when the general population is seeing their own decrease. I don't believe they should ever lose money, but they should have retained the same spending power and not had an increase in spending power when the people they're representing are losing it.

    They take the general public for a ride, and they eat it all up. I stood in the voting booth this general election and hated every. single. person. There is no one that truly represents what I stand for, and I don't understand why everyone goes along with these people that clearly don't have your interests at heart.

    I honestly am just fed up with the human race and life tbh. I'm just going to turn to drugs, at least that makes me forget about the downward spiral the human race seems to be taking.

    Don't read too much (any, personally) or watch any videos as you'll spoil the surprise for yourself but it's the most fun I've had in a while.

    As the internet consolidated, it moved toward homogeneity and passivity, and the internet’s once-vibrant art communities became casualties in social media’s rapid, obliterative rise.

    I think you can take the word art out of that sentence and it shows what the internet is becoming. I just find it so.... dull nowadays, it felt a bit like the wild west before, you'd stumble on a site, or a forum and just find some crazy stuff, now it's all there in one place.

    I fight constantly to not start typing old.reddi before I catch myself, it's purely years of habit. When I do eventually go on there I just get angry after a few posts and comments.

    I hate to say but I was making such a rookie mistake.

    I wasn't including profile::linux::base::pam within my base.pp file:

    # This class is applied as a baseline to every Linux server
    class profile::linux::base {
      include profile::linux::base::bash
      include profile::linux::base::ntp
      include profile::puppet_agent
      include profile::linux::base::sssd
      include profile::linux::base::nsswitch
      include profile::linux::base::pam
    }
    

    As soon as I added this in I could see some of the manual changes I made to the files get updated with the default values, after uncommenting my hiera values everything fell into place. Can't believe I missed it, tried everything else I could think of before.

    Hi guys,

    I'm really stumped and looking for a nudge in the right direction for how to utilise the ghoneycutt/pam module in puppet. Relatively new to this but got what I'd like to think as most the basics down.

    I've configured a few things using modules such as NTP, SSSD and NSSWITCH but I'm just stuck on how I can use this module and pull info from Hiera into it.

    So, lets start with

    .yaml file:

    
            ### nsswitch.conf authentication configuration
    
            nsswitch::passwd:     'files sss'
    
            nsswitch::shadow:     'files sss'
    
    
    

    And then looking at the nsswitch.pp file:

    
            ### nsswitch.config setup
    
            class profile::linux::base::nsswitch {
    
            # Get heira values
    
              class { 'nsswitch':
    
                passwd    => [lookup('nsswitch::passwd')],
    
                shadow    => [lookup('nsswitch::shadow')],
    
    
    

    Simple enough to call the values I want and works how I want, now I'm trying to do the same type of thing for PAM using the ghoneycutt/pam module and there doesn't seem to be much info on how to use it, or it's just not sinking in for me.

    Some of my PAM Heira values:

            pam::pam_auth_lines:
              - '# Managed by Hiera key pam::pam_auth_lines'
              - 'auth        required      pam_env.so'
              - 'auth        sufficient    pam_fprintd.so'
              - 'auth        sufficient    pam_unix.so nullok try_first_pass'
              - 'auth        requisite     pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 500 quiet'
              - 'auth        sufficient    pam_sss.so use_first_pass'
              - 'auth        required      pam_deny.so'
            pam::pam_account_lines:
              - '# Managed by Hiera key pam::pam_account_lines'
              - 'account     required      pam_unix.so'
              - 'account     sufficient    pam_localuser.so'
              - 'account     sufficient    pam_succeed_if.so uid < 500 quiet'
              - 'account     [default=bad success=ok user_unknown=ignore] pam_sss.so'
              - 'account     required      pam_permit.so'
            pam::pam_password_lines:
              - '# Managed by Hiera key pam::pam_password_lines'
              - 'password    requisite     pam_cracklib.so try_first_pass retry=3 type='
              - 'password    sufficient    pam_unix.so sha512 shadow nullok try_first_pass use_authtok'
              - 'password    sufficient    pam_sss.so use_authtok'
              - 'password    required      pam_deny.so'
    

    Some things I've tried:

    1:

            class profile::linux::base::pam {
              # resources
              class { 'pam':
                password-auth-ac  => [
                  lookup('pam::pam_auth_lines')],
                  lookup('pam::pam_account_lines')],
                  lookup('pam::pam_password_lines')],
                  lookup('pam::pam_session_lines')],
               }
    
    

    2:

    
    	
    	      passwd  => [
    	
    	      lookup('pam::pam_auth_lines'),
    	
    	      lookup('pam::pam_account_lines'),
    	
    	      lookup('pam::pam_password_lines'),
    	
    	      lookup('pam::pam_session_lines'),
    	
    	      ],
    	
    	  }
    
    
            include ::pam
    
    	class profile::linux::base::pam {
    	
    	  # resources
    	
    	    include ::pam
    
    	         lookup('pam::pam_auth_lines')
    	
    	}
    
    
    

    I've tried a few other ways and can't get it to work as I want it to. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    For android I've been playing Age Of Civilisation for the last 2 years, it's insanely addictive, easy to learn but hard to master.

    Also recently have been playing mini metro, it costs £1 but its honestly so good, you've got to link metro stations together and deal with capacity, sounds simple but it's very addictive. Art style is nice and also very polished. You can also get it on steam as well.

    From what I understand American companies still had to have things in place for EU residents, I know there was some smaller American news sites that I wouldn't have access to due to GDPR. If it is the case and applies to article 11 and 13 then I can see a lot of small to mid companies just blocking access for ease instead of trying to work around it.

    Edit - Did a quick look and found this:

    Under Article 3 of the GDPR, your company is subject to the new law if it processes personal data of an individual residing in the EU when the data is accessed.

    I know this relates to personal data but I can see them using the same type of wording for copyright material.

    Commercial sites and apps where users can post material must make “best efforts” to preemptively buy licences for anything that users may possibly upload

    If what is really said in that article is true then and it eventually passes into EU law then it's some dark days ahead.

    One thing I didn't see is how it effects websites hosted outside of the EU. Will it be a GDPR style thing where everyone has to abide by it or just if you're hosting within the EU?
