Hmm... a refurbished, I'm sorry "renewed", IPhone Xr seems like would be the obvious way to go, except I get a 10% veterans discount which brings the price difference for new from $150 to $90, breaking that all important $100 mental barrier. Now is $90 worth an official charger, headphones and no scratches out of the box?
Anybody out there used https://github.com/ContainerSolutions/helm-convert or anything similar to unpack helm charts into something more kustomize friendly? Hashicorp seems to really like helm and we're pretty well standardized on kustomize.
Been using ChromeOS for a bit and figured I share some thoughts on it. https://sharitt.com/2020/03/22/thoughts-on-chromeos.html
Had a drive in my zpool die and I almost bit the bullet on doing my long planned storage upgrade with all new disks, but I found an extra disk in the closet of the proper size, so I guess I'll wait to drop a few hundred bucks another day. The warranty on the bad drive expired in 2013, so I guess I got enough life out it. I think my drives have an average age of 8 years, so the upgrade will probably come soon enough.
So after a year and a half working from home, there's a lot of good to take away from it, but I've noticed one big downside. I just don't want to sit at my desk when I get done with work. Which means any hobbies or personal projects get seriously curtailed. So now my work laptop is at a table on the other side of my office and I guess we'll see how that works out.
Every time I use my work Macbook as a laptop(as opposed hooked up to my KVM at my desk) I always want to use is as a touch screen. I think I've just gotten so used to most non-Macbook having touch screens nowadays it's something I take for granted in any slightly premium feeling laptop. While it's not a primary input method, have a touch screen on a laptop just feels so natural and I wish Apple would catch up.
I had an interesting experience with a Verizon CS rep yesterday and I'm pretty sure he fucked up my account out of anger. I already have pretty low expectations of Verizon support and they failed even those. https://sharitt.com/2020/02/20/a-tale-of-terrible-customer-service.html
The recruiter spam I get for short term contract work is annoying enough, but the ones that take the time to point out that they know you have a current job seem more annoying. They're basically saying "You seem to have have a salaried job with benefits, do you want to leave it for my crappy 3 month contract with no benefits?"
