@leigh 🤣 (Banggood themselves seem ok for the couple of things I’ve ordered, but their use of Aramex in Sydney has a negative impact on the experiences I have had)

@patrick I'll hopefully have a TestFlight together for it, once I have a working alpha

@aurynn I will gladly beta test this one day

(I want to say “I will contribute code to this” because I really want a good one to exist but my swift isn’t great and spoons and all but ... I’d still like to help somehow)

The birds are safe (they know she is there and will move away if she gets any closer), but this is just one reason why my adorable killing machine is an indoor only killing machine. (Where the only thing she can kill is the carpet by vomiting up hairballs every now and then)


Oh hey, it’s that time of day when I feel nauseous for no apparent reason that might be a symptom of something but might just be not eating enough before taking my Ritalin this morning.

Outside is warm and very smokey, and it’s only September.

(All hazard reduction burns I believe, but the air quality is awful)

The last two days, running a pyconline au stream vs today playing mario kart with the niece & nephew.

@sitharus 🤞🏻 it goes smoothly

(I’m sorry. That’s ... bad.)

Ok, I get that I asked something a little silly, but what on earth is an s byte?


Tickets for Hamilton in Sydney next year acquired.

Hey person who keeps trying to use my email address on Tinder: please stop. I’m going to keep clicking the “wasn’t me, remove this address” button each time I get the verification email.

Hopefully not a sign of how today is going to go: click join on a zoom call, computer kernel panics.

I spent yesterday writing a small file uploaded “app” to allow uploading large files to Azure Storage, but without needing to proxy the files being uploaded.

Turns out this is fairly straightforward to do, but finding out how was definitely not the best experience. Figuring out how to use generateBlobSASQueryParameters is probably the best example. (I ended up reading the source code - the docs, even the types... nope.)


@aurynn I want to do both of these things.

Except I also want to build a k8s cluster and help do video things for pyconline and edit the video I’ve already shot and spend more time reading and
... (how did I not figure out I had adhd until last year?!)

@aurynn typo :( I meant cdk.

It’s .... alpha I think. But maybe you can steal some inspiration from it 😀


@aurynn have you played around with pulumi or the terraform-cdo?

My involvement at conferences is primarily as a volunteer, but: same deal.

I’m likely not going to have the influence to change lineups, but I will not stand by and do nothing, so the least I can do then is withdraw my free labour.

If you don’t know me, and don’t want to trust me with details - please feel free to reach out through a mutual you trust instead, I will trust them and not require they pass on any information you don’t want them to.


I want to find an internal IT ops person who cares as much about endpoint security and simplifying the user experience as I do.

MDM? DEP? Security Guides? Compliance?
