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.
Good question. BTW, if you have a question, use the “HMU” menu link to hit me up.
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.

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?
We live in a world where new tech is bring introduced all the time. How do you tell which ones are right for you to spend time learning about, adopting, and using? Here’s a simple list, and new tech pretty much has to check off 3 or more of these in order to have a shot at staying with us.
I get a ton of questions from folks related to “career navigation.” That is, how do you “set yourself up” for whatever’s next in your career, and how do you even decide what that is?
Let me start with this:
