software hacker who loves diving into code and creating way too many side projects. day job is writing open source software, mainly for cloud infrastructure projects.
on a personal level, i love music, listening to and making. some of my absolute favs: grateful dead, frank zappa, phish. i also do a fair bit of online gaming.
i'm exploring mastodon as my social media journey continues. i really dig the social and technological implications of mastodon and want to join the community =)

shout out to my fellow kubernauts!

we recently merged a feature that was nearly 3 years in the making, and we learned some interesting things about using client-go with dynamically generated informer caches along the way.

i wrote this blog to help share some of the hard fought knowledge

already a bunch of my favorite albums are erased from history, spotify denies they existed

I'm not here to work 40 hours a week to increase the GDP of the country or increase stock prices.

I'm here to spend nights staring at the 100 billion stars of the Milky Way. I'm here to watch thunderstorms unleash their majestic power. I'm here to watch sunsets and sunrises. I'm here to feel the cool breeze on a summer's day. I'm here to learn and to understand. I'm here as a way for the universe to contemplate itself.

Fine, here's my insightful take on manhood:

How to tell if you're a man: Does it make you happy to think of yourself as one? If you're not sure, try it out. Take as much time as you need. Much love to you on this journey.

How to be a man: Think of yourself as one. If you feel safe doing so, tell other people.

How to be a good man: Be a good person while thinking of yourself as a man.

Some people get "hangry" when they don't eat. Well I get "hexistentially depressed"

Retro computing programming language stuff 

A fun project I've done some thought on is a small JavaScript-like REPL for the Atari 800, like interacting with old BASIC or LOGO.

The 6502 CPU and its surrounding machine are very limited to modern eyes :) but I think it's possible to make a workable toy implementation.

RAM constraints are key, as is the lack of { curly braces } in the ATASCII character set. ;)

happy friday folks

you might have seen this phrase "T shaped developer" going around recently. i'm not sure how much stock i put into the theory, but on that note i propose the "U shaped developer" (of which i am a proponent).

This is glorious. These are rotary LTE cell phones, USB-C charged, with mechanical ringers.

The fediverse today trying to explain to newcomers where they are.

The "Moonshine Imperial Pils" is the result of a collaboration brew between the Buddelship Brewery, Hamburg and the Mashsee Brewery, Hannover.

The addition "Midnight Brew" reveals that this beer was created at night. It was brewed at the Union Brauerei (Brewery) in Bremen. So it is the best northern German beer collaboration.🍻

Although "Imperial" stands for a stronger hopping and a higher alcohol content, it it still tastes fruity with a sparkling drinkability.😋

I am old. I grew up in times of the real threats of the Cold War. Which is why I can somehow deal with the current situation. But I know that younger people are overwhelmed because they never experienced those times. I’m here to help. My DMs are open. Ask your questions.
