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.

Good news: Ubisoft released a patch for Watch Dogs: Legion.

Bad news: It doesn't replace the truly horrendous "I iz from London innit, pwoppa nawty, brrrap, innit" dialogue that makes Dick Van Dyke's performance in Mary Poppins look like a model of accuracy and cultural sensitivity.

Peleș Castle, Romania.

One of my favourite places on Earth, Peleș Castle near Sinaia, in Romania. Only a couple of hours from Bucuresti by train, Peleș is one of those places that looks even better in real life than its photos.

Ilford HP5+ film.
