So today's my 20 year anniversary at my current job (I remember the date because it was my dad's birthday). They used to make a big thing about significant anniversaries. But today? Not even an email.

Had the first outage of last night:-( Good news is that the the monitoring and alerting triggered. Bad news is that it happened just after I went to bed and I put my phone on Do Not Disturb overnight. Hopefully no-one too inconvenienced. Root cause was the system running out of memory trying to index a ginormous .cbr file. Needless to say some changes already made to prevent a repeat, and more changes planned.

First toot. Completely new to the fediverse. Looks promising from what I've seen so far. Anyway, day job is a digital architect, but I do a bit of full stack dev on the side, and have an MSc in AI from before it was trendy. Also been a Linux user since 1995.
