Neptune by Hashnode

 It's a blogging platform -- As you know (Well, as you know now), I have been looking for places to export all of this to another platform, one with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and modern editing capabilities that is actually maintained by its owners. Check it out here on Product Hunt.

You use Markdown to write; As someone who is used to the highlighter and change stylistic appearances way of things, it's a bit of a change. I'm not sure I've used markdown more than 4 or 5 times in my career -- 8 times in my life.

Grammarly is built in;

Technically, they're right.

Similarly to Notion, we can type "/" for commands to appear.

I can't format text the way I like to.

The image may not show up on the final product as I used the hyperlink of the image hosted here.

Ideally, this text 'new and SEO improved!' would be directly under the image and smaller, as a caption. Notion can do that. 

One thing Notion cannot do that Neptune can (or will be able to, as of this writing, it's in alpha preview) -- Is generating outilnes and summaries of your article with AI;

I have seen a program that can do something similar (And I don't recall the name) -- So I see this as a tool, not a replacement. I still have to do the research, write it, and make it understandable to you!



There's an 'Insert HTML' button, and I'm not sure what's wrong; The ⅰ bubble does not work yet.

This is what happens after I hit preview.

I love the variety of embeds they have!

What are they? Well, a gist is a code snippet. The rest? We'll find out!

How do you use the SEO options? When you get ready to publish, scroll down this pop-up pane;

I think it's a very good start! The built in SEO and ability to connect to a domain for free are great. While I can't style some parts of my post as I'd like (Mainly centering text), that's a very minor complaint. The AI parts have potential.

Neptune seems very based upon being a platform for programmers; There's an option to hide posts from the Hashnode Community and post it on your blog only. I Don't know how the SEO will work in that case, but SEO is based on the wider web and searching through engines, so I don't imagine it will affect your ranks adversely.

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H

Using Terraform and AWS Cloud9

Wanted to try Cloud9 but didn't feel like making an EC2 instance in the GUI. So I made a Terraform file instead, remade a default VPC, and it took 20 minutes of troubleshooting. #AWS — Morgan (@runtcpip) February 1, 2022     👉🏾 Find the Notion page of this post here , if it's easier for you. It certainly looks nicer!   Setup: An EC2 instance A reference to the default VPC, which I had to remake, as I had deleted mine.    Downloading Terraform into Cloud9: Instructions here . Done and Done. Now, How About Using It? The kicker (or blessing) is that Cloud9 doesn't auto save, like I’ve set my VSCode up to do. Had to do a lot of manual saving, but it wasn’t a struggle. The lock file is created, but I don't see it in my file system to the left until resources have been pushed, so I made a simple bucket to try it out. Because this instance is attached to my AWS account, I suppose anything I make within this will be as well. Let's see! Does Every Terraform Command
