My main reason for supporting them is the latter; raising awareness of software freedom, choice and that we must fight back when these are limited.

Three out of Ten
2015-03-03T23:17:41Z via Puma To: Public
So far this year, I've finished 3 books out of my 10 for Goodreads' 2015 Reading Challenge:
- Confident Ruby (Avdi Grimm)
- Practical Object-Oriented Design In Ruby (Sandi Metz)
- Street Cat Bob (James Bowen)
Yes, they're two non-fiction and one cop-out, but it's much better than last year! Next up, probably Gone Girl (Gillian Flynn) as it seems to be more like what the challenge should be!

I suspect someone moved the dead rat from my neighbour's garden to my driveway, as I don't think it moved itself. Thankfully there's only one.

Nice of EE / Orange to silently push new firmware to my router but screw the settings so it breaks my DHCP & remote access. Cheers.

Time and a Half

In work (for the past hour) for a deployment, passing the time in-between stages to fiddle with my VPS set-up Chef config. My desktop at home doesn't quite have the performance; I suspect my work laptop is better because of the 64-bit processor and/or it's virtualisation features.
NWRUG February 2015
The journey was a bit of an effort though; a 1850-1945 and last 2210-2315 train makes we wonder how much interest a Liverpool meet had after someone created a Twitter account and asked. Maybe if NWRUG would vary the city to cover more of the northwest… * plots * They are asking for more ideas, too…
Preston 1-3 Man Utd
2015-02-16T22:15:15Z via Puma To: Public
At the risk of calling Wayne Rooney a diving cheat, it didn't look like the goalkeeper touched him in that challenge, instead he seemed to trip over his own trailing foot.
Still, I'd only have put money on Preston winning if they went 2-0 up.

Today's purchase of Melissa Cole's Let Me Tell You About Beer made all the better by the dedication 😄

Roses are expensive,
Violets are too,
This card was on offer,
Happy Christmas to you.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I've got a knife,
Get in the van.
Roses are red,
Gender is performative,

A colleague, thankfully there's no-one by that name…

Today I experimented a little with Vagrant, creating a box that, on provision, downloads and installs the CNTLM proxy (allows Linux boxes to talk with a Windows proxy) and updates the installed software. It felt quite clean.
We could bridge the gap between the infrastructure team building a server somehow and running scripts to install stuff and tweak things, then giving it to us to set up web apps. It'd be good to have the whole set-up process in one place.

I'm not into the robotics side of AI, and if you're into sci-fi or any of this stuff properly then you'd be forgiven for thinking it's very dumbed down, but as it focuses on the people Ex Machina was a great watch for both of us this afternoon. She was a bit freaked out by the more-human-than-humans thing, and the ending that I won't reveal!
