Dublin 15, Ireland. Nobody wants to read what I write once they’ve read what I’ve written. I assuredly will write it. I also post occasionally about coding, bird-feeding, photos of things, cycling, and drawing (once in a while).

I architect and develop web systems to move data for a very big non-commercial organisation. I'd love to make something that improves the world for everyone though. Maybe one day?

Steve Jobs might have been a bollocks, but he knew how to rock a keynote. They usually had some skin in the game, and you knew it when you were watching it.

Federighi has just introduced Android OS, having huffed a lot of sugar.

[Weirdly anodyne voice that could be generated by an LLM] This is. A. dreadful keynote. To endure. I think that they. Don't get out. Enough.

Me: Now, having done the meetings, I shall cycle in this wonderful Summer's afternoon! After a 7 week hiatus, the ear operation and all that, I can't wait!

The Irish Weather: Hahahahahah. Go on, try it

I tried to combine the Linda McCartney vegetarian meatballs with a risen flatbread for dinner, but I think the jury will convict

I didn’t have a problem with the size of the ballot for the Euro parliament election, once I laid it out on the floor and got everyone into teams to help me fill it out

Soon to be former Prime Minister Rishi Sunak seems to be doing the UK election from start to finish in the style of classic British slapstick comedy, and for his dedication to the bit I must applaud him.

John Cullen over on Bluesky spent the day installing Linux on an old laptop. It seems to have been absolute hell and he’s moderately technical but he succeeded eventually. He’s happy now, if scarred by the experience.

Reminds me of getting Linux going on my Mac in 1997, but now there’s USB and flash drives.

I’m in the hospital waiting for my six week ear check-up. Bandages out, find out what’s happening in there. Resigned to bad news, but nervous all the same.

Good news! Eardrum repaired! No hearing aids for another few months although I’m impatient for them now.

Going to lift some heavy things as a treat. Can fly too, but still no swimming for another two months. Audio isn’t great, but the surgeon did fire in some gunk to help with healing and I guess the ear has to adjust to not being plugged too.

Fine Gael Councillor candidate Steve O’Reilly has today both posted and had hand-delivered the same grovelling appeal letter to give him my no. 1 vote, highlighted in yellow on the page and a patronising graphic on the other side to show how to do this. He should get a free seat just for effort.

Sorry, it’s not identical, but it contains the same elements and a remix of the text. Fine Gael thinks this guy is the next big thing.

For anyone doing your Leaving Cert today, good luck. My only advice to you is don't forget that you're doing your Leaving Cert today.

When you're dreaming in two decades from now about showing up five minutes before it finishes in your underpants, you'll thank me.

WHY ARE LOCAL ELECTION CANDIDATES RUNNING ON WHERE THEY STAND ON IMMIGRATION, YOU GET TO DECIDE THE PARKS BUDGET AND ZONING, NOT PASSPORT CONTROL

(This is rhetorical, Ireland has lost its marbles)

Stealing a reply from elsewhere: The number one local issue in Dublin 15 has become immigration, for people who are barely allowed to get a look in on how the parks are looked after. The dividing line between MEP and local candidate has blurred heavily.

A few years ago, I wrote code to solve problems. Now, I operate JIRA and move tickets around, which is something I enjoy a lot less but somehow get paid more to do.

My ear, which will have all the bandaging and whatnot extracted on Thursday morning, is itchy as hell. I want to scrub it with a toothbrush or something.

There's something in the molecular structure of grill toasties which makes them an essential dietary requirement. I know this because I like them a lot.

I'm squinting and trying to make out... Has landlord Marc Godart perjured himself in High Court? Is he arrogantly walking himself into several contempts of court simultaneously? And routing rent via the bank account of another person?

This could get interesting.

Me: So Internet, how can I connect to a SCSI device with USB? Can I get an adapter?

Internet: Haha, yes!

Me: Ok, what is the adapter? Where can I get one?

Internet: Yes...

Susanne Delaney is running for a subdivision of Fingal County Council. She intends to control the borders of Blanchardstown and Mulhuddart. We must be ever vigilant of Castleknock!
