Pinned toot

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 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 shaun.net/

"It's 6:30. Why aren't you up yet?" as Sybil leaps up from the floor onto my stomach and I wake up winded.

After reading 2600 on and off since I was about 11 years old (I'm 35 now) I finally bought a digital subscription with the backlog included.

It has provided weeks of reading and I'm only up to 1996!

Three months ago I was in a pretty bad motorcycle accident.

I've finally gotten off crutches and am now back on the road again. Words cannot describe how good it feels.

Still a bit of a journey ahead before I'm fixed, but at least my life is returning to normal.

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.

Onboard B19. My first time on a new Waratah Series 2. Still has that “new train smell”.

‪Sitting home alone in the dark and the light for the phone in the home office comes on.‬

‪I jumped with thoughts of that old urban legend where the murderer calls from within the house.‬

‪Turns out someone just dialed the direct number for the handset by mistake.‬

The best thing about work from home days is having Sybil the sitting next to you.

She has fancy beds but this old towel is her favourite.

You are home. Why haven’t you fed me yet? I’m just going to sit here and glare at you until you do so.

Looking forward to trying out Visual Studio 2019 shortly.

‪A little bit foggy out west but looks like it’s going to be a glorious day in Sydney!‬

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

Finally got around to deploying my own instance of Mastodon!
