Hey Mastodon, ich bin auf der Suche nach einem neuen Job als Site Reliability Enigneer o.ä. (Titel egal, Inhalt ist mir wichtig).

Ich baue und betreibe gerne automatisierte und skalierbare Infrastruktur, aktuell auf Basis von Kubernetes, das muss aber nicht der Hauptbestandteil sein.

Eine 32,5h-Woche (35h verhandelbar) und die Möglichkeit, komplett Remote arbeiten zu können, sind Voraussetzung.

Wenn ihr etwas spannendes kennt oder selbst dort arbeitet, freue ich mich über Hinweise.

About six hours on the sides and eight hours on the shelves in terms of pure time working on it, plus getting them here, then getting the shelves to my grandparents' house and back again. (Sanding sixteen boards is much more comfortable outdoors and with tools than doing it by hand at home)

"Unreasonable amounts of time" here means sanding every surface at least three times, then applying oil/colour and repeating where necessary. The side parts in particular are, uhm, not an ideal shape for sanding and oiling.

A better look at the colours:

Pretty proud of this one, despite sinking unreasonable amounts of time into it. Lookatit 🌈

(My new desk will arrive today and is going to stand in front of it)

49/ Orconomics by J. Zachary Pike. Super fun fantasy satire – reminded me a lot of Pratchett, in a D&D-ish world. Managed to be often fun, mostly interesting, and occasionally genuinely hearbreaking.

I use it so much, especially when people mention songs or link to music videos and I'm not in the mood to open youtube.

The shortcut that I'm most surprised by (and most thankful for) is that C-l in Spotify opens and focuses the search. And it continues to do so in their latest "New UI, Try To Find Stuff" update.

Just typo'd "they/them" as "thy/them", and 😍

48/ Catfishing on CatNet by Naomi Kritzer. Excellent YA about a friendly AI that really only wants to look at cat pictures (and help their friends).

47/ The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. Basically Achilles fanfiction. A bit better than I make it sound but not *that* much better. Reading this so soon after War Music was not a good idea.

Bad Internet means I can only post photos on twitter, sorry about that

46/ The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow. Coming-of-age portal fantasy. Nice, but not my cup of tea.

45/ The Bone Ships by R. J. Barker. Proof that worldbuilding-focused fiction is not restricted to sci-fi. Enjoyed this a lot, though – an extremely well-built naval fantasy world, with ships and sea dragons and all kinds of great stuff.

44/ One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews. The Innkeeper series with more of an ensemble cast. Not bad, but worse than the previous books, I'm probably going to stop reading here.

43/ Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews. More fantastical innkeeper stories. This time – intergalactic diplomacy edition. Enjoyable comfort read.
