My mum had an amazing sense for gift giving. Always managed to find presents people would really enjoy.
Yesterday was my niece’s 5th birthday. Got here some goo/slime and a unicorn slap bracelet, both of which were big hits.
Times like this I really really miss my mum. It’s been 11 years. Today isn’t a significant date or anything. It just.. hurts.
@sitharus it takes one person on my team an hour or so to bring up a new account in our org (with SSO & roles assigned & our normal GuardDuty etc).
(Though prioritising means that people do typically have to wait a few days, but it’s not that frequent)
Off work for 2 days and get back to 189 unread emails.
My team are great but if they could be a little less productive so I don’t have to spend as much time catching up on what happened that’d be… great isn’t exactly the word I’m looking for. (Mostly it’s catching up on if any of it now requires my action, I can trust that the things done are correct)
@ewenmcneill that’s how I read it 😀
Frustratingly I have no idea how I’m going to fit in a trip between now and July now (between family commitments here, work commitments around other weekends) so it really couldn’t have come at a worse time for me.

Damn them! 😀
@car I was setting up a netgear wifi thingy recently and I was annoyed it didn’t have a “seriously, if I forget this I’ll do a factory reset” option.
(I’ve done two of those and had use TFTP to recover a failed firmware update, so uh… yeah this is going to recycling I think)
@platypus I failed one by saying “ask (appropriate internal team)” (can’t recall if that was HR/Ethics/manager now, maybe I should have paid more attention 😂)
@simon_w I have wanted this for long enough I’m now betting I’ll get it by changing the firewall I use to something else
@ewenmcneill I think so.
I know a few people in Sydney decided to get together at a pub afterwards... Unfortunately my brain was “You didn’t warn me about this. Too hard. Traffic. Too many people.” so I didn’t go along.
