“Attempted delivery - Unable to gain access”

No you didn’t.

There are no lockable doors between the street and my first floor apartment. None of the other delivery drivers have this problem.

Oh well, guess I’ll see if it shows up tomorrow.

@aurynn I spent my weekend working out how to do persistent volumes with k8s on a bare metal (well, VMs on proxmox) cluster.

I have a strange idea of fun.

Went to doctor. Left with 5 tests / appointments to do. Oh good :/

On the plus side I’ve had the flu vaccine. On the negative side either that or the lack of sleep or the sun on the way to/from the doctors has left me feeling like crap. Shame there isn’t room on my desk to nap with my cat.

@simon_w 😂

(I use —force-with-lease on branches I know aren’t checked out elsewhere. Last time was today when something evolved from “hack on in one day” to “actually let’s ship this” and needed actual jira tickets in the commit messages)

@simon_w or the multiple failed CI runs with commit messages that gradually include more swear words.

@leigh cloudformation JSON is responsible for way too many purchases to make myself feel better.

From Twitter, “tell me why you went in to your field in 5 words or less”:

I like buying computers.


You know things are going well when you get a bunch of errors in assembly.

All I want is fish, but dependencies are fun.


Not actually sure what the 7th thing was. Maybe it didn’t exist?

Anyway, my phones are now delightfully new colours (work fine is now encased in “tangerine”, personal phone in “linen”)

3/7 deliveries have arrived, all I want is today to be over so I can play with them all.

@leigh the Lenovo website, and the pricing that I’ve learnt to ignore and just click and then wait for checkout to find out the price, is rage inducing.

@leigh I was really looking forward to training to events in Melbourne this year, I’m more bummed out about that than maybe the events themselves.

(Although maybe next year it’ll be viable to train to pyconau and I’ll be the happiest if a little tired volunteer)

@sitharus I have 6 things coming through auspost... I’m wondering if it’ll be one person or 6

@sitharus I have exciting deliveries coming today!

Also a psychiatrist appointment, when I have to say “yeah, I should have called the CBT person, but (and then trail off)”

@aurynn thankfully all subsequent packer builds today have not had this :/

My week started with opening a support case with AWS to find out why one of my packer builds (amazon Linux 2) got docker 19.something instead of the 18.something specified in the install command.

I’d like to go back to my weekend :/

Cat picture because I’m just not ready for the weekend to be over and having to do work again tomorrow.

Turns out Ikea sells a photo frame that perfectly fits the post cards available at the Apple Park Visitor Center :D

Playing around with Qubes, with an actual install.

It’s surprisingly usable (although I haven’t yet tried to get my yubikey for web / gpg (for git/ssh) running.
