Ran into this again – zyoper losing credentials – and something breaks in the Python dependencies.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/sbin/registercloudguest”, line 42, in <module>
import cloudregister.registerutils as utils
File “/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/cloudregister/registerutils.py”, line 32, in <module>
from lxml import etree
ImportError: /usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/lxml/etree.cpython-36m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so: undefined symbol: PyFPE_jbuf
Fix is to download the “old” Python library (here for this specific example) – and wedge it in. Then do the usual zypper up.
rpm –force –nodeps libpython3_6m1_0-3.6.10-lp152.3.7.x86_64.rpm
More a personal note. Regular website sizing (normal traffic, fronted with CloudFlare and Azure) compared with active use (voting/ballots and interaction).
The website is all WordPress on LAMP – so RAM and disk writes are key for the voting.
Normal use: B2ms – 2 vCPU, 8GB RAM
Surge use: E16s_v3 – 16 vCPU, 128GB RAM
Planning around this – and it’s a few extra dollars per month.

New Year and weekend – entering the New Year with some hope that the multiple vaccines will slow and eventually eradicate the pandemic. All signs from the US are that distribution is being botched.
Weekend numbers from The Seattle Times – cases have decreased (yay!) and deaths seem to have peaked. Hospital beds are >85% utilised which is a big concern.
Thursday – looking back at the first year of Coronavirus: 83M reported, positive cases, 1.8M deaths. That curve isn’t slowing down. Data from JHU
US data shows a more pronounced jump since November. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year…
Wednesday – vaccination is slow in the US.
Tuesday – When the history of Covid and 2020-202? is written, there will be a lot said about how the US responded. Reading today that 40M+ Americans are behind in mortgage, car and credit card payments. Those payments all become due in mid 2021.
Monday – Already writing about 2021 – soon this will be a full year of working from home, school from home. The disruption to normal life has been immense. The loss of life, livelihoods and the elimination of societal norms will be here for a long time. UK, US and around the globe new cases are reaching new peaks. 41,385 new positive cases in the UK, NHS warns of collapse.
Christmas and Weekend – The UK mutation is everywhere; reported by the UK because of good virus genomics teams. Some delays in reporting new numbers because of Christmas and the weekend – but Washington State continues to look bleak. Graphics from The Seattle Times.
Thursday – Call for whole of England to move into Tier 4 immediately. Almost 40k daily cases in the UK. Lots of breaking the travel ban happening.
Wednesday – 1M vaccines given in US so far.
Tuesday – UK positive cases up by 18k!
Monday – slight dip in WA case numbers – which is encouraging. Massive spikes in the UK. More vaccines arriving.
