For a variety of reasons, I usually miss Morning Edition. Particularly since I no longer commute, I have difficulty finding time to listen to the entire two-hour show. On Wednesday, NPR introduces a podcast that might help.
Up First will be a ten-minute recap of the day’s top stories, released weekdays at 6am, and hosted by the same three who bring us Morning Edition. I’m very excited about its potential to fill a gap in my morning updates.
I spent the weekend experimenting with new open-source projects that will either supplant hosted services, or improve my sysops experience.
This is not an uncommon way for me to spend a weekend, as https://ethitter.com/2017/01/replacing-slack-ifttt-and-zapier/ and the whole of https://ethitter.com/category/vps-adventures/ demonstrate.
Once they’ve “stuck,” I’ll post something at ethitter.com about these latest discoveries.
Any time I start thinking that I know what I’m doing as a sysadmin, I remind myself that
sudo reboot is, too often, how I “fix” things.
That feeling when you’ve been coding so long that words like succeed don’t seem like they’re spelled correctly.
