So it’s been some time since I wrote a blog. As I was figuring out what my next blog is, how could I ignore ChatGPT, BARD and the AI excitement that it has brought about (or re-awakened among many of us). And then there is GitHub’s Copilot and AWS CodeWhisperer! Code assistants that can make us slightly more efficient developers.
I have used (still use) a commercial VPN service (for those few occasions I am outside and need some extra security). But I have always wanted to standup my own VPN server to have a bit more confidence that my activity logs are not being watched (worse sold or hacked) by a 3rd party VPN provider. Punted this for a long time, but found the perfect opportunity to do that today while waiting for some car repairs at an auto service center.
