Random thought: I really wish the scheduling feature in PagerDuty was better. Ended up making a spreadsheet to make sure we had coverage and no one was on call too much, which I wouldn’t mind doing but then there’s no way to just say “screw the automatic schedule, I’ll do it myself with this group of people”.
Docker for Mac & Parallels on the M1 Air are both surprisingly good even for first preview versions.
They highlight how much I want >16GB machines to be available though before I can justify one as a work machine. (Work usage would be mostly for on call, so cloud consoles & maybe pushing git commits, but sometimes being able to run our 3musketeers tasks is rather useful)
I miss spending time in San Francisco. I think, until seeing it on YouTube yesterday, that I hadn’t realised how much seeing the view out of a car on the ride into the city felt like going home.
It’s never been home, although in a way it was (I spent a lot of time there for work).
I’m not at that job anymore, so even without the current situation I don’t know when I’d be able to get there again. Or even if it would feel the same way without the people I’m used to seeing.

The Slow, Troubling Death of the Autopsy
Fascinating read. Part of me wishes this had been an option for my mother when she passed away (18 months after a cancer diagnosis). Mostly because maybe it would help care for others at their end of life.
