Brought it home on a very wet day in-between the bands of showers that were moving over. I almost made it home dry, but the sky opened up a few blocks from home 🌧️

Super excited about my new-to-me transportation for around town 😀

Wow, lots of drama at Freenode: gist.github.com/joepie91/df80d

Haven't regularly used IRC in a while, but Freenode was always my goto network.

The FOSDEM 2021 CfP is now open and there will be a devroom. The CfP closes on 22 Dec, so if you have an idea for a talk, submit it now! mariadb.org/fosdem2021cfp/

The rest of the talks of this mini-conf are also really good and can be found on the MariaDB Foundation's YouTube page: youtube.com/c/MariaDBFoundatio

Slides are here, but they're pretty useless without the video of me speaking (I try not to do wall-of-text slides that I'm just reading if I can help it): speakerdeck.com/dbart/building

My "Building MariaDB" talk went "live" at 8:00AM US Eastern time on YouTube. Weird sitting there watching and being an attendee at my own talk. It's on YouTube here: youtu.be/aqlP72dDAFY

Day 7 of being more grateful. Today is the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US. Historically this is a day to spend with extended family. Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents when I was younger. Parents, Brothers, Sisters, Nephews, and Nieces now. I miss you guys, grateful you're safe and wish we could be together, hopefully next year.

Day 6 of trying to have more gratitude for things. Today I'm grateful that of the people I work directly with, they have all, afaik, been able to stay healthy. Esp my manager, who has just returned to work after undergoing chemo for the last few months. 🎉

Getting set up to record a short presentation for a virtual conference this morning. It's all a bit precarious, and the workbench ended up having quite the mess on it due to everything I was moving around
