I'm Shaun. I live in Sydney, Australia.
During the day I do cloud computing projects for large enterprises.
After hours I love tech, travel, architecture, good food+wine, and getting out and about on my motorcycle.
I have a 12 year old #cat named Sybil who I adore.
I've recently taken an interest in a POSSE approach to my content, and finally got around to setting up my own Mastodon instance.
I post less than I should on my web site at https://shaun.net/
As I settle into 2020, I've decided to take a #POSSE "Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere" approach to my content under #IndieWeb principles where content will be published on my own site first and then syndicated or linked to elsewhere.
I've written some thoughts at https://shaun.net/notes/taking-back-control-of-my-content/
I put together a little write-up of my trip down Putty Road on the weekend.
A few months ago I built a replacement for the 1194 speaking clock that closed down in Australia.
Before now I've only published the numbers informally on social media, but I finally got around to putting a little write-up on my website:
I still need to write-up the technical details, but hopefully I'll get around to that soon.
In September, Telstra shutdown the 1194 Australian talking clock after 66 years.
To keep a bit of Australian phone history alive I've recreated it. Naturally it's on extension 1194 internally, but I've also pointed numbers to it covering timezones across Australia:
02 9099 4494 – Sydney/Melbourne/etc
07 3667 9594 – Brisbane
08 6244 3294 – Perth
08 7078 7794 – Adelaide
08 7918 0808 – Darwin
That was a fun little project!
Going on my list of favourite games! #DeathStranding
It is proven! I am ewing on Keybase: https://keybase.io/ewing/sigchain#67ea6cce5098b4d97ce657d257bc2950fd86b76e7c382d1991e4a995a3fa69260f
Reading with some amusement how the luddites in the Australian government think they can get telcos to retain MAC addresses of all devices.
If only they knew how IP works. Good luck getting the MAC of any device behind my router.
I do cloud stuff. Love tech, travel, architecture, good food+wine & exploring NSW on my motorcycle. 🏳️🌈
