Get excited! The linux.conf.au 2021 Call for Sessions & Call for Miniconfs are open from now until 6th Nov 2020.

Our theme centres around a question many of us have been asking ourselves in 2020: "So what’s next?”.

If you have ideas or developments you’d like to share with the open source community at linux.conf.au 2021 in Jan, we’d love to hear from you.

Guess who baited the twitter moderation bots and is now locked out of their twitter account?

Me, temporarily forgetting about Mastodon's content-warning system:

hmm, I wonder why Mastodon has a button for morse code...

good afternoon and chag sameach, ye island of cloud(s?).

I find it quite ironic that the recommended way to thaw frozen fish is to put it back in water.

I watched about four and a half minutes of a Half-Life 2 speedrun (the video was three gameplay devs watching the speedrun, which I thought might be very interesting) but it's made me feel so sick that its been 6 hours since I turned it off and my head still doesn't feel right :(

I still find it astounding that a Tesla charged from the electricity grid emits about 45-55% more CO2 overall than my camry hybrid pumped full of petrol.

Australia is so incredibly backwards.

OH MY GOODNESS I THINK I JUST FOUND A MAGIC CHECKBOX IN FINAL CUT PRO THAT TURNS OFF ALL THE LINE NOISE ON MY PYCONLINE RECORDING

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I supposed this is what I get for trying to use very high-end equipment with zero training

Full of emotions after the season finale and series finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Such a fitting send-off to such great characters.

So long, Coulson, Skye, et al... it's been a good journey.

I have literally nothing left to cut out of my pycon talk, but if I say it fast enough I can _just_ come in 20 seconds under the time limit...

I passed the practical, now I have to wait for UTAS to see if I've passed the theory component...

I'm kinda nervous ahead of my amateur radio exam tomorrow... I haven't actually sat a proper exam in about 7 years. 😶 😣

that feeling when you've been working on some code for ages and the last piece clicks into place and the whole thing just works.

now I just need to add some more unit tests to this thing...

if it takes them 15 business days, they must be utterly _swamped_ with requests... geez

My talk proposal was accepted at pyconlineau, so now I have to actually write it, and likely record and edit it as well... 😅

Somehow 8MB of runtime process memory during the build of one code repository has been replaced with garbage data and strings from another code repository and I am completely at a loss as to how this has happened.

Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination. Bug fixes before new features.
