I’ve recently had a few pings on Twitter from folks asking me how I write–everything from general questions to specific questions about Leanpub.
Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ’19:
As your elders continue to fail you in taking even common-sense steps toward limiting pollution, preventing atmospheric breakdown, and mitigating the effects of over seven and a half billion people living on one planet, the scientific benefits of sunscreen are going to become more useful in protecting your skin at least into your thirties.
The rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience, but I will dispense this advice now.
If you know me, then you know I love Disney, and especially Disney Parks. I just do. And anyone who loves Disney Parks likes nothing (except Disney Parks) as much as reading about Disney Parks. I follow several websites – MousePlanet, Theme Park Insider, WDW Magic, and more. One site I’ve valued for years has been WDW News Today. They do a ton of great photo updates, and usually have many articles posted throughout the day. Definitely helped feed my habit.
But man, they’ve about ruined their website.
At which point do you stop automating repeatable tasks? As in, what tasks aren’t worth automating? My boss wants me to automate all SQL Server database repeatable tasks.
TI’ve been trying to improve my tumultuous relationship with food, and that’s involved eating a little bit, more frequently, and cutting back on the amount of starches I eat. It’s been a huge help. One of the biggest helpers – because I’m all about “don’t have to think about it” – has been the Sargento Balanced Break packs. They’re pre-measured for me, are easy to carry, and come in convenient three-packs that cost a whopping $5. They also create a lot of plastic waste, which sucks.
Time for a fix.
In the last month or so I have not seen any questions to you, so I’ve decided to drop you a line. 🙂 I like your idea of spreading knowledge to the people around you – I’m referring mostly to the colleagues, when I say people.
So here comes the question: have you ever been in a situation, where you wanted to share knowledge, but the people around you show no interest – either because of seniority or age difference, and they just do the things in ‘their way’?
What did/would you do?
Yeah, that’s a tough one.
Looks like DevOps Camp will be happening in July this year, and you can get all the details you might need, as well as sign up.
You might be wondering what Camp is all about.
Speedometers are fascinating devices. At least, the old mechanical ones used to be.
I’ve recently had a few folks ask something along the lines of, “how do you care for yourself, personally, and deal with the stress from work?”
It’s actually kind of a simple answer, but it comes in a few parts.
I love writing. It relaxes me, I can do it from anywhere, and it’s fun. Since 2001, I’ve written technology books – literally dozens of them – and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. But I’ve always wanted to branch out and tell stories.
Carpe diem, right? Why wait? I mean, worse case I suck at it, right?
