Bit late posting this, but I didn't realise it had been listed.

My job is up for grabs! As of Monday in fact. Senior Systems Engineer working in Queenstown, NZ.

High amount of autonomy, the job is less about the company you work for and is all about the clients. And the clients are awesome, and fun. Adventure sports, raceways, eco lodges, video arcades.
Queenstown is a playground filled with fun things to do and plenty of IT work. 1/

Seeing as people are reacting to this post today, a reminder that my job is available. Come live and work here if you like, check my other posts.

🇬🇧 The Belgian government refused to do it, so I had the impact of the proposed next-gen #DataRetention law mapped myself. The whole territory is covered, this 'targeting' is a hoax - it's blanket surveillance in disguise.

@VincentVQ@twitter.com, respect the CJEU!

🔌 harmonised fast-charging technology
🔌 unbundling of sale of chargers

A roiling sea of anguish, anger, annoyance; raw emotion churning like burning sewage.
"This," The Void said, "is where I put the screams I am given."
"I thought they just went away."
"Eventually. I don't mind storing them here until they fade."
"It's ugly. And beautiful."
"Yes."

Another year, another event where they act like they've invented something they didn't. This year it's "Passkeys", apple's made-up word for a biometrically secured token. Aka something you've been able to purchase from for quite some time. Plus, you know, webauthn as a standard is ~5-6 years old.

Sound like a familiar story? Here's a web comic from a decade ago that I think about often:

Any Python dev out there willing to help @fdroidorg to get rid of this nasty little bug?

gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidserver

(a little background: when screenshots for apps are provided via fastlane, and the author decides to rename/remove some, the renamed/removed "originals" are kept and there's currently no way getting rid of them but making "more screenshots", which is not always feasible). 4 years it waits to be fixed now…

Made some additions to the Nginx config. Done for the sake of Nextcloud performance, but now it feels like everything else it proxies is snappier too. May just be in my head 🤷‍♂️

Related to my previous post/thread:

Occasionally you'll get support requests like: "Hey, can we swing a GoPro 200+ meters and keep it streaming over WiFi?"

To which the correct response is: "Let's tune the AP, strap it to a brick, and find out."

If you're a kiwi and have been thinking you should move to Queenstown, or if you're in another country and have been thinking you should move to NZ to safely watch the apocalypse from afar: Correct, you should. Moving here is one of the best things I ever did. Now you can too because this sweet job is available.

I'm neither leaving the area or the company, but moving to an internal-facing role. I will miss the clients and the field work.

So, this thing happened in my country recently:

For some reason the city hall maintenance team decided to ASPHALT THE INTERSECTION of a road with THE RAILWAY LINE

I've enjoyed Half-as-Interesting's videos for some time, but the amount of condescending sass regarding luxury car owners in this latest video really had me laughing.
