CatOps Digest 2023-02-19
What was on CatOps in the last couple of weeks…
Long time no news. Sorry for that. Yet, I have an excuse this time. I‘ve been to the FOSDEM and Configuration Management Camp conferences in Belgium.
You can read my notes here on Substack on in my blog.
Also, it was a Cats’ Day recently. You can find some cat photos in this thread on our Telegram channel, and of course I encourage you to send your cat’s photos as well!
Charities featured in these weeks were:
UA Responders - tactical medicine and medical equipment.
Musicians Defend Ukraine - they cover various requests, which usually come from AFU fighters directly.
Long Hands of Territorial Defence - a project by Come Back Alive foundation. You can still support Chernihiv oblast there!
A vulnerability was discovered in both iOS and MacOS. Please, upgrade your Apple devices if you have any.

Cheers, folks, and see you next time!
