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?

Oh my goodness, someone just pointed out that NFTs are exactly the same as the "name a star"/"buy a piece of the moon" scam and suddenly it all makes sense.

The real fault for NFTs lies with GPG itself. If they had actually made public key cryptography accessible, you could just sell a fucking private key and be done with it.

But no, we need to burn the whole world down so rich people can launder money

Gtfs was new to me.
But it's exciting to have standards and reference implementations to compare with!

Applied and accepted for a new job. Really hard to leave my current role and actually resign.
3yrs is a good amount of time to really understand what an organisation is capable of.
I'm only on my third job.

This is the single greatest triumph of technology over itself, boost if you agree.
