Week Notes 23#41

  • Had a nice Tuesday evening at Canal House with Tulio, Tushar, Danillo and Lewis, catching up after many years, and nice to see everyone
    • Was cool to hear my blog posts are still solving problems for the org πŸ€“
  • Morph came in the living room for a bit on Saturday night while Cookie had a chew, which was nice, but didn't really get much cuddles
  • A last-minute three day weekend as my parents were going to come up on Friday, but then didn't get a chance to as the weather was pretty naff. Had a good catch up on the phone instead
  • Thinking of setting up my NAS again - largely after listening to The beginning of the end of physical media - and because there's a few programmes that I can't watch easily any more, but that I've ripped from DVDs
  • Announced the upcoming v2 release for oapi-codegen, and finalised the code changes - looking forward to having it live, and getting a blog post out about some of the things we've done to reduce the sprawl of the dependencies
  • Making steps towards a 4 day week, with my day off being for Open Source πŸ‘€πŸ€‘
  • Worked on an interesting piece of work looking at vCluster and how we can use it to reduce the number of EKS clusters we're using
  • Got Chapati Junction for the first time in ages and it was very good πŸ˜‹
  • Had a good call with OpsLevel to demo their platform for incident management, and to get an idea of what I'd need to do to integrate DMD into it
  • Almost applied to YCombinator - for no reason other than seeing someone post about it being the deadline that day. I say almost, I considered it and didn't because I couldn't be arsed to even look at the application form, let alone spend precious executive function on it
  • But I did make some good progress on some work towards setting up the infrastructure for dependency-management-data at work
  • Had a couple of post-surgery checkups for Cookie, and she got the all clear from the vets
    • But she's had to have her ring on today to stop her from licking too much where she had surgery πŸ˜…
  • Feeling much better about my talk at TechMids this coming Friday
    • Listened to my article version of the talk on a walk on Saturday as a way to refresh the content in my head and work out what's needing updates, which fortunately didn't need too much changing, just a few things adding for what I've shipped since then πŸ‘πŸΌ
    • Made a couple of tweaks to the accompanying blog post, and need to make a couple of tweaks to the slides and do some run-throughs but looking forward to it
  • Had a contribution to one of my (much smaller) projects as part of Hacktoberfest, which was very unexpected!
  • We've put the heating on for the first time this autumn, it's been very chilly this weekend
  • Saw OpenSauced's app went live so set up my user account and played around with a few dashboards for oapi-codegen
  • Had a nice post during the week about my talk at DDD
  • Got approval to post my on-call compensation so glad to have that live, and it got cross-posted to Hacker News but didn't do very well (which is fair, it's not that spicy)
  • Been a bit out-of-sync with our Goustos this week with me not around on Tuesday, and then having Chapati Junction for our Friday night (which was Thursday)
  • Didn't finish Wordle on Tuesday 😭 My first missed game in > 400 days!
  • Had a bit of a catch-up with Gareth, and looking forward for another one this coming week
  • Unions came up a lot this week with folks I was talking to πŸ‘€
  • Lost internet on Wednesday during my only meeting of the day πŸ˜… Very annoying but luckily wasn't back too long after
  • Hit 9999+ articles in my Wallabag "to read" list 🫠
  • Blogumented renovate-graph and Renovate's local platform, which ended up flagging a couple of issues, and was a bit slow to write as I ended up choosing a rather large repo to test with πŸ˜… Also was a bit overwhelmed trying to post it, but also wanting the bug reports raised upstream too
  • Went for a Sunday Roast today at The Railway, Lowdham πŸ˜‹
  • Morph's food arrived and as I was filling up his container with it, he was meowing at the door of the conservatory to be let in 😹
  • Spent some time looking at how to get the version of the Go compiler used by a given binary blogumented, and spent some time doing the same for Rust, but it looks like there's no way to check with Rust, at least without digging into .debug_info


  • Apex Legends as usual
    • Had a tonne of frustrating crashes with Apex yesterday
  • Bowser's Fury, completing the story mode and then done a bit of the extra stars, but not bothered about getting 100% as I've already done that before


  • Loki
  • Beckham
  • Scrubs
  • Futurama
  • One Piece
    • Binged it 🫣
  • Kim's Convenience
    • As we wanted another nice programme like Schitt's Creek πŸ₯°
  • Game Changers (on YouTube)
