I like Kubernetes more than I like most people.

It's not so much that I dislike people, I'm just not crazy about coming into contact with them.

Looks like I'll teach virtualisation next semester. Woot.

I got some nice bronze wood screws the other day and I may be a little too pleased about that.

I took a couple of days off work and now there is fresh primer on my boat's cabin top!

Ok, I think that yak is well and truly shaved. What do I do now? Maybe get a coffee?

This weekend I successfully glued bits of wood onto my boat, but it still needs more bits!

My boat plans today mostly involve gluing bits of wood to other bits of wood.

I'm feeling kind of burned on on tech, but I can't really think of anything else to do for a living.

This is looking like a good weekend for painting my boat. I'm pleased with this.

For reference, this is approximately one boat's worth of paint.

Currently I'm stripping all the paint, making small repairs to the hull and deck, and preparing to repaint.

The boat was built in Canada, probably in the 1950s. Her original design is a Sea Bird yawl, ca. 1910, but she was heavily modified sometime in the 1970s.

I found this boat for sale. As you can tell from the picture, she needs work. But the hull was sound and the price was right.

Some background: I grew up sailing and have always loved boats, but for... reasons have not owned one for some time. Last year I resolved to change that.

I'd like to share a little bit about my boat and ongoing refit project, so here goes. If boats are not your thing, sorry!

I've been a lot less interested in social media since I got my boat. In other news, the boat project is going well!
