• ## 64. Accessing Kubernetes services through Wireguard

I figured out how to access Kubernetes services on my cluster without the need for kubectl port-forward or an ingress. It can all be done with Linux routing tables, and Wireguard makes this trivial to set up.

• ## 54. NixOS 21.11 and nftables

NixOS 21.11 switched to the nf_tables backend for iptables. Let’s see what this means, and what new things we can and cannot do.
