I feel like having your home searched based on the Espionage Act is bad

I see mentions of conservative dating apps popping up in the tech news and the like. I give them a month after their launch before their hacked and/or the data is leaked. I remember the Ashley Madison database. I was always surprised by the number of folks at work (old job) their used their work email address to register for access.

I tested negative for COVID-19 last night after two tests in the previous 10 days stating otherwise. I'm feeling better, though I have a bit of "COVID fog" and a lingering headache. Once in a while I still have a coughing fit. I don't care what others say, it's not like the flu and it's not a joke. Wear a mask and get vaccinated.

Yes. I am wearing my Star Trek: Voyager era communicator on my shirt on Zoom calls today. I'm doing things the Janeway.

Fellow geeks: the U.S. based telecom I work for is looking for a Sr. Python Engineer to join the SDN Orchestration team. It's a 100% work from home position. DM for more details if interested. This position is not on my team, but of the same org in the company.

We have a big software migration planned for this coming weekend, so of course the database teams want to use this week to move databases from on-prem to cloud servers. This last run of UAT is quite interesting.

It's been 10 years, but I still miss the show "Happy Endings". It was not a "Friends" knock off, it was better.

Some lightning shots from tonight's storm. Gusts at nearby Davis-Monthan AFB at 41 knots, at Tucson Int'l, 52 kts.

Amazon buying iRobot is concerning; that's a lot of interior scanning data now accessible by Amazon.

One of the biggest benefits of working from home, NAP TIME

Interesting. I moved from a Debian or Ubuntu based distro on my ThinkPad T460s to the latest version of Fedora and now I have no trackpad troubles at all. Everything works as expected.

Oh my goodness, I just realized I spelled "too" wrong and now I'm going to lose sleep over it tonight. Perhaps by writing this toot this will help remove it from my thought processes.

Linux friends: what's your favorite email client? Should I just stick to my webmail client? I try to like Thunderbird but I feel like it tries to hard to be like Outlook Express.

I knew those elevators were too crowded. Just tested positive for COVID. Luckily I don’t feel as bad as I did the last time around.

Giving Fedora 36 a try today. I'm very impressed with how polished it is. Things are working right out of the box and I don't feel the need to change the theme to something else. I did change the default font, I just don't like the look of Cantrell. Otherwise it's been a delight thus far.

RIP Nichelle Nichols. Thank you for enchanting us as Uhura and for letting us be your captive audience for so long.

This location on Disney property is still running the older MATRA software and terminals. I approve.
