I get so many casual mentions of ticket numbers in our discussions and I keep hacking old URLs for tickets to look them up, or clicking through JIRA boards and views to navigate to the proper ticket, only to have them pull up in a sidebar in JIRA requiring more clicks to get to a […]
Caveat… this is likely not the option you want to pursue for a small to medium scale Minecraft server… Lightsail will be more cost-effective due to the amount of data transfer involved. Also, this is partly an exercise it navigating Amazon Linux as a largely Ubuntu user. Purchase a Domain I’m going through Namecheap for […]

Who else is doing Advent of Code 2019? I’m using it to try to solve problems in Ruby without actually looking up syntax (looking at you, inject) and getting some practice using MiniTestinstead of RSpec which I use 99% of the time. Day 2 was kind of fun to be able to implement a tiny virtual […]
