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

A really surprising portion of the technology we call "AI" is just "sub-minimum wage piecework workers" twitter.com/zenalbatross/statu

I'm only just realising my idea for a rust app has an implementation as a python program

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.

Medium has really improved features for writing blogs on their platform. It’s too bad then that reading posts on Medium still doesn’t feel like reading a blog. It feels like reading advertisements.

Hopefully all this code gets ripped out this year.
Work needs better health checks than pingdom alerts.

Okay now functional tests pass. I had to issue a certificate to the web environment in order to pass a health check so the app sends an email to generate a service desk ticket.

Working on broken code for three weeks.
Finally got to manual functional testing and I just keep hitting unexpected environment configuration. Even between test runs. I'm going mad.

Running the branch in the test environment confirmed my suspicion.

The bug was subtle
Each server has a base.pp class
Only one server has nagios on it with a nagios.pp class
The pull request removed all use of the export syntax @@
Most of the changes were in nagios.pp which is fine.
However removing @@ from the nagios_file resource in base.pp meant puppet tried to create nagios config files in the whole fleet.
