@monorail ugh. Computers were better before files came along.

Push your workers *past* the brink of exhaustion with this big ass fan!

Actually, I did eventually manage to tease some Very Cool And Useful Information out of 200 million rows of noise and this does give me some satisfaction.

I'm glad that I brought an ethos of data collection to this company, but I'm not super loving my new 9-5 of running SQL right now.

TIL that gzip's header has a 32-bit size limitation, leading to incorrect reporting of compression ratio/uncompressed size for files > 4Gb. The recommended workaround is (ridiculously) to just use "zcat file.gz | wc -c". Given the header format has an arbitrary size "extra fields" section, this seems pretty egregious.

Today it really *was* my router that needed to be rebooted 😞

Top 10 active instances of the network statuses and have seen 9453/4916 currently alive instances. We can see at the house glittered like real silver pennies. Hansel, stretch out your eyes open? Next year.

"ls" because typing is boring and tab completion doesn't exist.

"k8s" because idiots.

Change my mind.

I wish my mail client collected stats over how many emails I'd laboriously drafted and then just decided "Nah".

@sixohsix tomorrow I'm starting a corporate consulting company called "do the business better" and I'm looking forward to retiring this time next year.

LinkedIn is a fascinating social network.

In all social networks (all interactions everywhere, really) you put on a "face". You assume an identity in your communications.

LinkedIn is a place where everyone pretends that work is super fun all the time and as long as you try your hardest, you will succeed.

People announce that they lost their job as an "opportunity to be hired". They only share brainy content, like a video from the World Economic Forum about global poverty, with an attitude of "ah yes, we just need to do the business better and we will solve this."

Not really blaming others, though. I assume the exact same persona when I have to interact on LinkedIn.

It's just weird, though.

@urbanfuzzy maybe I should reconsider making executive team payrises one of our KPI's.....

I wrote the salaries of our executive team on the whiteboard to keep our morale up.
