Brandon: SSL Support
You may have noticed that now the main domain supports SSL.

Hooray for Let's Encrypt

Let me know if you run into any problems.

Brandon: Hosting
So my current webhost is shutting down their US data center, so I'm going to be moving all of this over to a VPS setup.

If you're seeing this then at least vent is over on the new setup.

Steve: I'll have to figure out what access you and Kyle need, since I'm setting it all up myself it's not quite a pushbutton process.

Brandon: Deletes fixed
Deletes are fixed.

Also, Steve, I set up a git repo on bitbucket for the vent source. Let me know if you need to make further fixes since I'm so lazy.

Brandon: Email Problems
Apparently emails aren't getting sent from this host.

So, uh, I'll try and fix that one of these days.

Brandon: Jenkins as a CI Server
Why do people use Jenkins? It's a steaming pile of crap that is lacking basic features that every CI system should have.

Jenkins does not have templates, something that would be very useful for a CI system when you have a lot of projects that are built and tested in nearly the same way.

The plugin system is a mess and poorly documented. One plugin may not play nice with another one.

The UI is atrocious and has not been updated in years.

It doesn't use a database to store test results or run results, so seeing metrics of jobs is a royal pain.

I lost the battle for using JetBrains TeamCity product because, aside from templating, there was nothing that TeamCity could do that Jenkins couldn't.

I should have fought harder. There more I use this system the more I wonder how large organizations use it.

I have a feeling that they don't. They pay for a system that doesn't require babysitting all the time.

I will cease ranting now.
