My name's Chris. I'm a native Texan but I've lived in the United Kingdom for something like 27 years.

I currently run my own company as a consultant (freelance) DevOps engineer and cloud architect. I've been deeply interested in tech most of my life so that's what brought me to this particular server. 馃

Aside from tech, I've got an allotment garden to grow flowers, veg, and fruit in; love to take pictures with my current Canon 80D, and help run a charity.

My "life backlog" is bordering on critical mass. I have 3 PS5 games bought but not played. I need to pay my self-assessment taxes. Need to get my broken tooth fixed. I have a massive backlog of podcasts to listen to. The allotment has abnormally high levels of weeds. Got to mow the daughter's lawn. I STILL have an adult electrical kit to play with, a Lego ECO 1 to build, and a huge F-111 model to put together. The balcony needs to be de-spidered too. Not. Enough. Hours. In. The. Days.

Just inadvertently hit my caps lock, then ran CAL. A sideways calendar? WTF? Is it just a Mac thing or is that in Linux too?

Today I'm working through a list of 110 AWS S3 buckets for my client.

Ones not controlled with Terraform need to be imported, ones not encrypted at rest WILL be, logging needs to be enabled on all that serve as websites, and nothing really needs public access but they need to be analysed to see how they're being accessed.

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme - and a bee of course. I have a 1400 year old Welsh legend on my right arm. Today I got an old song on the other arm.

Excuse me whist I pick my jaw up off the floor. 馃嚞馃嚙

Things could change with the public vote but what a change from previous years! And a great show all around!

My side hobby for a few years now: screen-shotting my colleague's pets when they appear in online meetings.
