(re) #introduction post!
I'm a 40-something sysadmin working for a software company. I grew up in a small Australian town and, after a couple of decades living in Sydney, have recently moved back to the country with my wife and son.
I like to make things - knitting, programming, building hardware, woodworking. Jack of a wide variety of trades, and pretty ordinary at most of them.
Known to toot about all of that.
I was disappointed with this lentil dahl when I made it the other night. Kinda bland. But with some time to chill and a little bit of sriracha it's pretty dang good.
Actually, to be fair about the worst my toddler will do these days is pretend it's a telephone; have a long conversation about his daycare and going for a ride in the car, before poking it saying "doot doot doot".
I could dig out my 3DS and play it on that. But kinda concerned about my 3DS getting toddlered. He's pretty adventurous that way.
Looking up all of those Dragonforce covers while logged in to my work google acct a little while ago has done strange and terrible things to the algorithm. Now it's recommending this.
Every now and then I remember that David Hasselhoff did a cover of Jump in my Car. Those are good days.
(In my defence, we do test short-term backups on a regular basis, although that could use some work. The problem I'm discovering now is my rotation / retention wasn't working properly, so instead of a year's worth of backups I have, uh, a lot less than that.)
