My original plan for 2022 was to work a bit less, but I failed for the simple reason that I forgot to mark “free” time in the calendar. Stupid. Be that as it may, it was mostly quite a good year for me, with a definite non-work-highlight being a three-week holiday with my offspring in the Spring.

I did quite a bit of DNS work and trainings, and gave a few Ansible trainings, and in between I wrote the odd blogticle:

This year marked my tenth Ansible anniversary, and we created an Ansible reference sheet. I learned about using a lookup plugin for Ansible module_defaults, and jotted down some notes on Ansible local facts on Windows nodes. As you might know, I’m a fan of local facts, and we began collecting ideas for using local facts.

On the DNS side, the pièce de résistance was writing about DNSSEC signing with an offline KSK, and because I get the question occasionally, about DNSSEC with NLnetLabs’ LDNS and NSD.

We also looked at a bit of history in DNSSEC “key tag” or “key ID”?, and for good measure I made a fool of myself in Red means Kaputt: when DNSSEC turns into a treasure hunt.

I’m looking forward to what 2023 has to offer. We’ll see. Wir werden sehen. Veremos. On verra bien.
