Piata Mare in the beautiful old city of Sibiu. I have only been here one time. But we spent 3 days. This is a wonderful city, fantastic food and great people.

It is about 5 hours from Brasov by train. And the journey is breathtaking!

I HAVE FOUND THE BEST CAT PICTURE EVER (Obviously, not counting the ones of my kitten)

I love the Rust programming language (even the turbofish...) But man alive, in 35 years' of software development I have *never* worked with worse documented libraries/frameworks. And bearing in mind I've developed for QNX Neutrino and Symbian in my time, that's saying a lot...

Successful working from home is all about investing in the right tools for the job. Which is why I’m currently contemplating buying a coffee grinder that’s worth about twice as much as my computer… 🤔

I love this low detail cat model Wikipedia used to try to explain how cats land on their feet.

This is how we feel about being back at work today... 😕

I've given up arguing with her now. This is it. Our new working accommodation.

Legitimately outstanding album.

Don't bother trying to convince me I'm wrong

I actually had a productive weekend for a change 😃

So, Google fired their star AI ethics researcher Dr. Timnit Gebru after she tried to publish a paper demonstrating that Google’s BERT natural language model is unethically biased along gender and racial lines and not fit for use. It sounds like Google squashed the paper because it found the contents “objectionable”, and is claiming that Gebru chose to resign instead of being fired.

Note to self:

Remember to do `copy running-config startup-config` to persist your network switch settings.

*Particularly* remember to do this if you have a cat that's decided the network switch is her favourite place to sleep, and may be prone to quietly rebooting the network switch at a moment's notice.

Otherwise you may just spend two days debugging mysterious network problems before discovering kitty raised an old switch config from the dead... Sigh.

So, according to Spotify, this was the song that got me through 2020...

Seems legit.

La mulți ani România, țara cel mai frumoasă din lumea.
