It was pointed out recently that I haven’t written anything here in almost a full year… well, as you might expect a fair bit has changed:
Firstly, I bought a house and moved ~400 miles. There was a lot to this decision, clearly. I don’t speak a word without thinking through the repercussions, so something of this magnitude was carefully considered.
My two oldest offspring (the ones living with me full time) have graduated high school, and moved on to their own lives, mostly.
It’s been a while, but I haven’t found anything interesting to write about lately. Until last week, when I got this message in Mattermost PM from our CTO guy:
“I’m about to create a ticket that I think will be fun for you (and its something strategic we need within the next several weeks). Go start looking at Terraform”
I’d already looked at Terraform some two years ago when I was evaluating automation tools for use at the day gig, things to help with the increasing tedium of recurring tasks on a growing number of systems in various locations around the world.
