Harden up

September 16, 2018

It hasn't been much of a year for blogging for me. Changing jobs and a few other things have taken my mind elsewhere, but this post is about a different kind of hardening up.

I've added a bunch of security related headers to the site to tighten things up a bit. I don't suspect this site would be much of a tempting target to anyone, e commerce, form… and reader free as it is, but you never know, & every bit helps. You can see this rake's progress over the course of one evening by way of encouragement in your own site hardening efforts.

One side effect of all this is embedded gists are gone. Restricting the source of javascript files to include github didn't seem meaningful. The links are still there though of course.

Update November 2023: Over these last ten years the code's gone from being code on my blog, to links to gists, to embedded gists, back to links to gists, & finally back to code on my blog. The circle of life.
