Quick Update

If you clean the vacuum cleaner, you become the vacuum cleaner…

Green Point Park
  • Week of 22-28 July.
  • Monday, breakfast with Mia, school run, gym, office, quick catch up with Paul, random tinkering while listening to some Stephan Bodzin.
  • Looks like my naming for the rebooted 27 / Geek Dinners stuck. Scenius Dinners. Scenius.co.za. 2nd one in the series is happening in the coming week.
  • Do-nothing scripting: the key to gradual automation.
  • Tuesday, work, very rainy day, meeting in Newlands, office, a beer at Strolla with Anton, dinner at Anton’s with Georg, time well spent.
  • Jacques and I have not talked in about two months.
  • Top 5 movies: Aliens, When Harry Met Sally, Spirited Away, V for Vendetta, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. This will probably have changed by next week, but Mia asked me recently, so I made a quick list.
  • Mouthwash before or after you brush your teeth? I like before, because I like the taste of toothpaste more than the mouthwash taste.
  • Wednesday, work, catch up with Justin at Newport Deli, gym, Green Point park walk, promenade walk, roast lamb and veg dinner at Georg’s with a very pleasant bottle of cinsaut.
  • Be the person you needed when you were younger.
  • Thursday, ZA Open Networking workshop at the Victoria Junction hotel, seared tuna at Beluga with the open networking geeks, fun day, deep nerding.
  • Jacques and Marietjie’s daughter was born on 25 July, Elze van der Merwe, 3.3 kg.
  • Listen to fs.blog: Cracking the Code of Love
  • Friday, office, promenade walk, nap, Georg’s birthday drinks at Van Hunks with Al, Adrian and Ryan – we have plans to build power stations.
  • Happy birthday Georg!
  • Ryan introduced me to The Red Dragon (drink): Fiery Dragon Ginger Beer and whiskey, pretty good.
  • Saturday, back to Van Hunks, watched the SA vs NZ rugby with Georg and Ryan, took a walk, Royale Burger, Moro gelato, epic nap, Rockpool with Georg, watched Paper Towns – not bad.
  • Sunday, up early, tea and backups, installed Debian 10 on a server, extended sunset podcast promenade walk.
  • You run Debian right?
  • Tune of the week: The Cardigans – I Need Some Fine Wine And You, You Need To Be Nicer

Have a fun week, crazy kids.
