It’s Been a Little While Every time I have a blog I am always really bad at posting to it consistently. Actually, a lot has changed in recent months so I thought I’d do a little brain dump. Funkwhale Thanks to the guys at Funkwhale I’m finally getting involved properly with a software project. To date I’ve provided a couple of new (extremely simple) features and bugfixes, as well as leading a large project to restructure the documentation and provide a slew of new user guides.
Making a difference It feels good to actually have a positive impact on something. One of my biggest gripes about working in support is that you are - as a support agent - inevitably the face of disappoinment and/or failure at some point. The job is time and attention demanding, and sometimes you simply have to tell someone that things they want are not possible. This is devastating for morale.
Mixed Messages Okay, so I’m slightly reneging on my earlier post by writing about computers again, but trust me when I say this one is as much personal as it is technical. Back in t’ day It seems so bizarre to me that people are taken aback by my not having a Facebook account. Or a Twitter account. Or anything that they have bar email. I’ll add you on Facebook.
And Now For Something Completely Different I’ve been writing posts on this website for a little while now, mostly relating to my technological exploits and sysadmin misadventures. While this is a big part of my life at the moment, it’s not the only thing I do. I’m going to try and write a bit more about non-technology things just to try to encourage myself to focus on other things alongside computers.
