Yesterday I switched to Bitwarden as a password manager, and I cannot say how exciting it is to be able to use a Terminal to retrieve my credentials. Gotta love being given a JSON response to parse with jq!

Putting a space in front of your Linux commands when SSHing into a box so your coworkers can't see your stupidity in the history is totally not something I would do.

I bought a Nintendo Switch last week and it has been so much fun playing new games! Any recommendations on fun ones to try?

Yesterday in the office kitchen I reduced 3 milk cartons to 1 with one of the developers present. We joked that I was doing a 3-way git merge. We snorted and sniggered and I think this is what telling dad jokes feels like.

A huge part of my workplace work with embedded C, and I've finally used this as an excuse to start learning it. Kernighan & Ritchie write so well in their book!

Squashing commits with git is so satisfying.

Today I demonstrated Puppet to my team and how I'm using it to look after our infra. So nice to share what I'm doing and have proper feedback between developers, testers and ops.

I see a lot of people that use private browsing on the phones, and always wonder if they realise that it only impacts the local history.

@queenofhaiku going all in! Nice, I'm thinking about it. Cool to see someone already is!

@OTheB I've heard a lot of nice things about that phone. Do you think it will replace the other phones on the market?

@ashenaardvark trust it only slightly more? I wondered about disabling the drivers instead of having a sticker..

People that cover webcams with stickers and such. Good thinking, but do you do the same to your phones? If so, why or why not?

Here's a tip or 3 for all you 'DevOps', SRE, Ops, Infra folk:
- update your shit
- reboot your shit
- don't recreate the wheel just for your shit
- document the shit
- automate your shit
- share knowledge about your shit
- git that shit

Today's Telegram hack: send YouTube videos to yourself, and you can play them in a pop out player, with or without the screen on!

Biggest frustration right now is people calling git repos 'gits'. No. Simply no.
