Just spent my morning obsessing about my SSH key management and making a pretty diagram with mermaid to show the flow of access across my systems and virtual machines.

I probably have twice as many unpublished blog posts in my drafts folder than I do published posts this year.

Most of them are nearly complete, I'm just too pedantic to post them until I've edited them to death.

Don't get me wrong, I really like some serious computer talk now an then, but I'm so f***ing glad there are nerds from more and more passions/hobbies/professions here. Makes the fediverse more of the diverse network it should be.

The framework for doing this automated end-to-end testing of games is open source here: github.com/RedpointGames/GameT

Been feeling the fantasy theme lately. John Howe, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

For ez reading, here's a toot thread of all the games i've made so far!

Starting with my first game, GAY FOREST SIMULATOR 2015! You collect firewood so you can have a lovely night with your girlfriend. Very short, simple, not much to it, really was just an experiment to try stuff out. Cute tho.

Just a normal guy living in #Arizona. I enjoy #gameing, listening to podcasts, #chiptune music, and #metal music. Also passionate about #FLOSS and #Linux in particular.

I work in the semiconductor industry. I have some unique insights in the inner workings of this strange industry.

Hey do you notice how there isn't a single ad or piece of sponsored content anywhere on this website? Isn't it great? It's great.

Here's the bad news: this website is NOT free. Since we're not paying a corporation with our private information or advertisers with our eyeballs, we need to pay directly the people who are running the servers and banning nazis.

Do what you can, folks.

Spent some time continuing my Ansible project.

This time, I figured out how to actually write and use the inventory/hosts file to specify which of my machines (or in this case VMs) the playbooks should play on.

I haven't really found any good documentation on how best to organize hosts, playbooks, and roles.

Ansible seems a little too liberal in how I architect my playbooks repo. There's so many different places to hide variables, and the concept of host/playbook/role isn't well defined.

I realized last night why I've been fighting this massive headache and sense of dizziness the last two days.

I spent two weeks at 2,000 feet, and just came home to 8,500 and thought I could just keep up the same level of physical activity.

Oof, I guess not.

Recent pet peeves: It's not a podcast if I can't subscribe to it with my podcast tuner - i.e. an RSS poller that downloads MP3s from enclosures.

It's not a podcast if it's locked into a platform app. A YouTube video is not a podcast. A Twitch stream is not a podcast. Those all might be "periodic timeshiftable subcription" things but they're not podcasts

I'm the lone SE in a family of civil engineers. Leadership ranks in the civil realm seemed to be folks pushing into retirement with decades of experience under their belts who really brought younger engineers under their wings to show them the ropes through their first five to ten years of their careers.

That just doesn't seem to be a thing SEs get to experience.

Sitting in on interviews at work today. My team is "older" than the "Facebook" average (mid-thirties). But it seems like we have to struggle to find anyone past forty to interview, and I've yet to interview someone in their fifties.

I would love to have some mentor with some great war stories.

For a long while, my thought process was, if an app could be done in a browser, then I'd take the website over the native app.

Lately, I've been thinking that it would be nice to see the WWW shift back to being a protocol for sharing marked-up documents.

And all the apps go native using protocols and stacks designed for their specific use cases.

Uninstalling MySql from is like trying to rid a Windows PC of an anti-virus program. The damn thing just won't go away.

So we ran from the "normal" people and their status games into our nerd caves, where computers don't mind us speaking to them in a very direct way. And made the Internet, so that we can talk to other nerds like us.

But then it turned out there's money in being able to talk to computers. And because of that, those people we ran from are trying to invade our little hiding place.

There's a long but good blog post by @maradydd that helped me understand it medium.com/@maradydd/when-nerd
