My hot take on is that the license change is good actually. They should get to make money too, and charging large corporations only for the optional GUI part of docker is about the most reasonable way to do it.

It's funny -- when No Man's Sky came out, I played it for *hours* and *hours* and loved exploring planets and zipping around from place to place. When I reinstalled it some months back, I couldn't figure out how to do anything any more. It's almost impossible to refuel as a noob.

A lot of folks say it got richer and better, but to me it abandoned the clean, beautiful game it started as and became something complex and disappointing.

"Healthy Homes" is a joke
- Rain pipe dripping on concrete next to the house, instead of in to the garden? That's a Healthy Homes violation.

Gosh dang sysadmins standing in the way of the continuous deployment future
🤬

These "but commutes are good actually!" articles are really cheesing me off. They all boil down to people enjoying dedicated break time where they have no work or personal responsibilities. You don't need a commute for that, you need boundaries.

I deployed www.geonet.org.nz today!
I have a cool job. 🤓

Shout out to @aurynn who gave a talk at VUW about devops that gave me direction to my current role at gns on geonet.
I'm reflecting on 5 yrs in full time work supporting web development with those ideas.

Anyone know of a cool branded water bottle?
The office kitchen is a bit far away.
Or should I load up a plain one with stickers?
