If you care to know, I am child free. I don’t have nor want nor can have children. This world seems to be in a death spiral so I am glad not to have to worry about my progeny and their environment.
I do my best as a steward of our world, but I am one man and corporations are hell bent on making a profit and gutting our ecosystem.
@mattmark And finally, I really don’t like my job anymore. I have been trying to escape it since 2016, but because I don’t have a college degree, it seems that I have no hope of escaping.
If you scan my library, and peek into my git repos, I’m worth more than any recognize. Sure, I get paid well and I have no children so it’s not all terrible but I want a job that is 9-5 and only requires me after hours because I choose to do so — like learning, etc.
@mattmark Second, this is a rough year. Yeah, 536 CE was a really bad year but this one takes the cake in my lifetime. A pandemic, wildfires on America’s west coast, murder hornets from Asia, Australia is likely still recovering from their blazes, America is infested with literal Nazis — and IMPOTUS is complicit.
I am also an active follower of @mwlucas and his books; I feel like I have all of the IT Mastery books so I'm eager to put that knowledge to work for someone.
Is anyone interested in hiring a technologist with a strong networking background with BigIP, Juniper, OpenBSD pf? I also have a lot of experience with scripting languages, such as Python, Perl, BASH, and PowerShell
If interested, you can DM me. I'm from the midwest region in the US.
In either case, I really need to get out of my current role; there have been a lot of "left field" passes, which seem out of the blue so it's made the environment seem hostile and definitely articulates failings within the teams. And I don't like it; it's caused some strife on two cases, which could've been better avoided with better communication.
Well, my interview with Amazon for a Technology Support position seemed to have gone off well enough. I'm esp. jazzed when I can correct questions from the interviewer (e.g. what is 184.108.40.206/16 [when it should be 169.254.0.0/16).
I haven't heard of an offer yet, and I'm weighing the pros and cons of this position should they pursue me for their team.
This may be insensitive. And I know it’ll be unpopular.
“COVID-19, America’s Chernobyl.” Mark my words, with cases like Florida’s beaches, NOLA Bourbon Street, and slow reactions — trying to scoop a few bucks, the undocumented case count is going to explode.
I am hopeful that most Americans are smart and mindful of their day-to-day activities, hygiene and their hands.
Stay safe. Wash your hands, for 20s correctly. Any air travel or freeway (inter-state) business, be extra precautious.
Tonight, I am watching: “Elizabeth,” with Cate Blanchett, Geoffery Rush, Daniel Craig, and Christopher Eccleston. The Director of Photography did a bad job, but the Costume, Set, and Plot are good.
Okay. The thing about this film is that it really illustrates the treachery that Bishops can have; they’re conniving and scheming in this.
Also, I am saddened about how shrouded I am. I named three big actors and one big actress; there are others women. The film is a beach head of stardom.
Just a space heater for the cats to lay, sit, stand, meow on
