Job lookin, tech, Boosts welcome 

After losing my job to covid last March I've had a hell of a time trying to find tech work. I gave up for a bit and did some bike wrenching but it's not making ends meet so I'm back on the job lookin train.

I have 18 years experience, mostly in systems administration, mostly in windows, but my experience is really all over the place. I've worked for government, university, fortune 100, small firms, consulting, data analysis, information security, kind of a Jane of All Trades. I have an associates degree and a bachelor's degree, and nine certifications that are still mostly relevant, one of which is the MCITP.

What I'm most proud of is my ability to figure stuff out. I'm real clever. I'm also able to communicate with non technical staff as well as super nerds.

So what's up, fediverse. You got any jobs?

ยซIf people could understand what computing was about, the iPhone would not be a bad thing. But because people donโ€™t understand what computing is about, they think they have it in the iPhone, and that illusion is as bad as the illusion that Guitar Hero is the same as a real guitar. Thatโ€™s the simple long and the short of it.ยป โ€” Alan Kay


I've been using org-mode lately. Today, I tabbed on an ifdef'd block of C++ code to make it fold away. It didn't work, obviously.

So I idly googled it and sure enough, Emacs will do that.

M-x hide-ifdef-mode, BTW and the keybindings are different from org-mode.

Just found out that Aphex Twin, famous owner of the biggest synthesizer collection in Cornwall, also makes music

Learning that people suffering from the storm and blackout in Texas were using the guide in our book Recipes for Disaster to build a rocketstove with which to heat food and water, we've put the directions online here in their entirety:
