Northern English bearded geek who cooks, eats and bores people about cars. Same handle in lots of places. My work related tags are #DevOps #SRE I guess. mostly I debug #AWS shenanigans and try to figure out why bits of the internet are broken.

Which are the best UK supermarket olives?
My friend just told me of a genius idea: her friend & partner have a secret signal for when they have guests. If one of them makes themselves a hot drink in a specific mug, that means ‘I grow weary of company, please help guests out of the door.’
People where deal with #windows machines and IT support, my neighbours laptop is full of guff. What's the equivalent of Spybot Search & Destroy these days?
Love this - it's like somebody took lots of good bits of Produgy songs and jammed them together https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0q86XjkUMjo&t=131s
I find the details of almost everything, but especially other people's jobs, fascinating.
Not job related but this morning I fell down a hole of the history of a member image I've seen forever and not really understood https://knowyourmeme.com/editorials/guides/who-is-soyjack-the-meme-and-wojak-character-explained
MDN, CSS-Tricks, A Book Apart, etc. it really feels like the center is falling out of the web industry.

#GoodMorning everyone. Happy St David's Day! Here, some little daffodils, by the church. It's raining now. I have a packet of Hula Hoops for second breakfast, and a cup of tea, of course.
Somebody stumbles over a blog post of mine from 2011, and thanks me by email for its content.
Such sad news - I thought he was doing well as we’d just watched their recent series this week. Great to see him back out on the bike. RIP Dave
Good morning, Fediverse!
By Thursday morning the ache of swimming on Tuesday nighrbl has really bedded in. Just in time for swimming tonight. There is also a Sunday class, which I am considering but I would probably then ache all week. And smell of chlorine 24/7
#Nissan are shutting down the app for controlling heat & charging from all #NissanLeaf cars pre 2016. Will anyone build a third party replacement? https://www.disneyplus.com/en-gb/series/the-dropout/5C0gjGwyRTeZ
i have things to write but you know what needs cleaning? the oven. how can I possibly live with a dirty oven.
During the Great Depression, the U.S. government did something extraordinary: it created the America Eats Project, sending writers around the country to document American eating. An archive of recipes, community cookbooks and more
I'm currently pushing the idea that our component library's tests should be a separate package (in a monorepo), so we're testing the real built version of the library, and also the package.json exports.
Folks are a little uncomfortable that the component's tests are in a different folder to the implementation.
Is there a solution to this that isn't… very hacky?
Kitchen looks like an abattoir. blood everywhere because i sliced into my finger cutting into the bread to make a tomato & crisp sandwich.
Sandwich tastes a bit iron-y but on the plus side i won't get anemia

#PrideMonth is a rough time for me. I know I belong in the #LGBTQ+ community, it's inclusive for all, but I've experienced a lot of Asian hate/racism from within the community in the past. It should be better now since there's more awareness of Anti-Asian hate, but Pride Month triggers past trauma and it's hard to let it go.
When I came out to my friends, I lost most of them. Afterwards, I tried using gay apps to connect with people. The amount of fetishization that happened from within, not to mention descriptions of "no femmes, fats, or asians", I grew incredibly depressed. I hated my body and my ethnicity. It wasn't until I met my amazing partner that he pulled me out of self-deprecation and helped me raise my self-esteem/self-worth. I started embracing my ethnicity, personality, and differences. I'm much happier now.
I want to remind people to be open. Racism/prejudice/hate can come from places one might not expect. You never know what experiences one has been through either.
