Pinned toot

Hello! I'm Hamzah. I'm a engineer at a large video games company in .
I consider myself a hardcore geek, but these days most of my time is taken up by my son and wife. While I don't really consider myself much of a gamer, I do love the series.
I'm very interested in automation, and have a small addiction to , and

Having all sorts of problems with my cluster, and gluster.
I'm going to move it to using iSCSI on a server. I don't think I've ever experienced working well.

VLANs on Mikrotik routers are just too confusing man. It's so easy on literally every other platform.

Watching for the hundreth time today. I'm a huge Khabib fan, but Justin Gaethje is such a cool and classy guy.

Man, sometimes it's so frustrating dealing with datacenter people.
I can't access the Supermicro BMC of a server because their firewall is restricting access to port 443, 5900, and 5901 but they keep blaming it on java.
I completely get that Java can be problematic on older BMCs, but if I can't even reach the required ports, then it's not a java problem! 😡

So excited for . It's all I've been thinking about all week 🤣

Does anyone actually use a browser based editor as their main editor? Eg something like Eclipse Che, or Theia, or VSCode? It seems like a cool concept, but I'm not really sure where it would be useful.

Today, I bought a coffee with oil in it. This is absolutely disgusting. How could people have this.

I find health and safety training so funny sometimes, because they suggest strange things that nobody does.

I have loved these since I was a kid. When I was a kid it seemed to be available in a lot more shops, but these days it seems to only be available in shops that have a "American" section.

Hmmm I've been using LineageOS on my old, spare phone for the past week, and I really like it but I'm very split between using using it on my main phone.

My main phone is a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. There isn't "official" LineageOS for it yet, but even if there was, I'm very split if I want to flash it or not. On one hand I really like being de-googled, and how light LineageOS feels, but on the other hand, I do actually like Samsung's customisations and apps etc.

I finally managed to compile LineageOS for my old phone (Mi A1). Only took two weeks. The build time itself didn't take very long, but I ran into a number of silly issues while trying to setup my build environment..
It's basically the same as the nightly build from the Lineage website, but it's kinda cool that I compiled it myself.

I bought a box of Duplo blocks for my three year old son. He already had a Duplo fire truck and train, now hes really happy that he has a lot more blocks.
My one year old wants to join in too, but he doesn't really know how to!
