I just realised my intro went when my instance crashed all those months ago.
My day job is a senior #networkengineer working on some very large and strange computer networks.
I always find the perfect art to parody for a tech book cover about a month after commissioning the art. This would be *perfect* for #snmpmastery.
Haven't figured out the title yet, old Ivan Aivazovsky did not less than 6,000 paintings. But daaamn.
"Common perception is that wrapping SNMP inside TLS combines the disadvantages of SNMP with the disadvantages of running a certificate authority." #snmpmastery
TFW you need #coffee its terrible weather outside and the only (admittedly mediocre) cafe is closed.
a few days ago I released a Python library that wraps a machine learning model for spelling English words and sounding them out, even if those words aren't in the CMU Pronouncing Dictionary: https://pincelate.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ I'm still working on some of the documentation, but since I just gave a talk about it at SLSA, I thought I'd mention it here too!
Have you heard the Legend of the Headless Biker?
No, not that one. Not that one either; geez there are a lot of careless people on the roads - those aren't LEGENDS, just bad news you've heard.
No I speak of the biker who lost their head in a demonic bet.
They were lucky that was all they lost; they retained their soul but forever haunt the highways, riding free, ignoring speed-limits and helmet laws.
Best bet she ever lost, actually.
Apple and Google are credited with the Emoji 1.0 specification.
U+1F491 is defined as "COUPLE WITH HEART" in Unicode 6.0 and is depicted by two circles with crescent-shaped eyes and pressed lips.
Unicode 6.0 was released in 2010. Emoji 1.0 was released in 2015.
Or in timeline form:
5 years: U+1F491 exists as two people kissing with a heart over them. they do not have races, ages, or genders.
1 year: Apple and Google make U+1F491 into a heterosexual white adult couple
3 years: Apple and Google add the ability to make them a heterosexual black adult couple
now: Apple announces that you are now permitted to depict a third gender
Amazing who you find during a lunchtime walk.
I found an oldish sci-fi book with old sci-fi short stories in it. While I have had the book for many years, it's been a while since previous readings.
The stories written in the late 60s were pretty good and still hold up 50 years later.
Currently reading the highest treason by Randall Garrett in this anthology.
