Pinned toot

I don't think I ever did a proper . I'm a 34yo British bloke, married to a wonderful woman and we have a 14 day old baby boy, a 9yo pupper and a 5yo cat. I'm a Network engineer scratching my way further into network security. I've been been on the Fediverse since ran on Laconica (a long time ago). I'm a licenced op and I dabble in hobby electronics and photography. I am also slowly learning German and getting into gardening to keep these bones moving.

maybe it's just me but buying car batteries seems a lot more complicated than I expected

After seeing someone carrying a full TRAY of lemsip drinks, I really don't want to be here today.. 😷

Can any experts advise what kind of write performance bonus one can expect migrating from RAID50 to RAID10?

Wondering if it's that the more tired I am, the more I need punctuation to parse a toot

Now on 9, my app menu button has disguised itself as a Google search bar, but the secret is you have to swipe it, not tap it or you get something else.
Seriously Google, just stop, it was done, you're beyond diminishing returns now.

On my annual church visit for the chrimbo carols up in the loft with the pigeons. I guess that makes me closer to God to make up for the other 364 days.

Made some good progress with getting my head around using JSON APIs with Python. Pretty pleased in spite of hitting a wall with a probable bug in the API service I'm using

Home broadband connection is still not ready and my mobile provider as been down all day. So I've been forced offline all day. Only managed to get my emails when I found some sweet sweet free WiFi at the local supermarket. It was tense until then, real tense. I think I may have a problem.

Day 4 of the month and I'm already 1/3rd of the way through my mobile data allowance. This does not project well..

Won't have Internet at the new house for a while but I was getting uncomfortable with the lack of WiFi so I had to set up a network, mostly for the familiar warm feeling of being bathed in 2.4GHz microwaves

Bracing myself for my 2nd moving day in the last 7 months, starting tomorrow. This time it isn't all happening between the naptimes of a 3 week old baby so that's something at least.

Been to the United States once in my entire life, and now I'm apparently in a class action lawsuit against the airlines there. I suppose I got the full USA experience I was hoping for.

running freebsd-update now I'd forgotten how much of a pain major version upgrades are. MERGE ALL OF THE FILES!!!

I'm not buying any of it either, I'll probably just make my annual Wikipedia donation instead

I probably should've killed my email price-drop alerts before black friday, my inbox is being carpet-bombed.

Finally got around to watching the Joe Rogan-Elon Musk interview. He's probably done a lot more crazy shit since this was filmed too.

One can dream that eventually it gets called off as a bad idea, the tension dragging Sterling down is released and suddenly becomes a new gold rush and we can all go off on a well-needed holiday abroad for pennies

Need to work but the news is like working next to an active slow-motion train crash
