My name is David and I use he/him pronouns. If you tell me your pronouns then I will use them. If your pronouns change then I'll do my best to get them right; please correct me if I use the wrong ones so that I can correct my usage.

Here is kilowatt 2 foxtrot india. Please copy 59 in Wyoming

Apparently some people in a community I'm part of consider it an infringement on their freedom to ask people what pronouns to use (but asking for a name isn't)

I don't get it.

Job lookin, tech, Boosts welcome 

After losing my job to covid last March I've had a hell of a time trying to find tech work. I gave up for a bit and did some bike wrenching but it's not making ends meet so I'm back on the job lookin train.

I have 18 years experience, mostly in systems administration, mostly in windows, but my experience is really all over the place. I've worked for government, university, fortune 100, small firms, consulting, data analysis, information security, kind of a Jane of All Trades. I have an associates degree and a bachelor's degree, and nine certifications that are still mostly relevant, one of which is the MCITP.

What I'm most proud of is my ability to figure stuff out. I'm real clever. I'm also able to communicate with non technical staff as well as super nerds.

So what's up, fediverse. You got any jobs?

Just finished S05 last night.

Goddamn but Dominique Tipper is amazing.

Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.

Texas! If you have no heat then layer up. Air is a great insulator.

Tee shirt, hoodie, jacket, blanket.

Why do people at work keep calling me a full stack developer?

I haven't written a single line of code in over 2 years.

This morning I'm earwormed by an advertising jingle that Dubonnet used in the US radio market in the 1970s.

No step on snek!

The Snake River starts in Yellowstone and runs through Grand Teton National Park along the base of the Tetons. It's a little cold for swimming or floating this time of year though!
