Last year I started a journey to find a better work/life balance that I will write more about. In just over 6 months previously impossible opportunities have become reality. Volunteering at a fun run, chaperoning a field trip, joining Alex’s Cub Scout journey as den leader… and today being able to just sit and watch Abby’s glow run. Today I am grateful for the support from my wife and those at my employer who made this possible.

Abby’s 3rd swim 🏊‍♀️ meet. First one I’m helping out with a minor task.

Separate out the routing and wireless components so you can upgrade/replace individually. I’m a fan of the Ubiquiti UniFi AC Pro access points and security gateways personally. https://twitter.com/patrickrhone/status/1205195301826551808

  1. Because how can engineers build IPv6 support into our products if they can’t use it?
  2. Because it was FUN!
  3. Because it’s better to be trained and ready than scrambling when it’s too late 🤔

I love it. Exactly right. And if your enterprise network has had IPv6 for a while, remember it might have been deployed by someone learning - so there’s opportunity to improve a situation - but only if you learn now twitter.com/joenevill…

I currently have 4 inflatables staked and roped in my yard. A “lamp post” with Christmas themed arrow signs, a Mickey Mouse with a candy cane, a Santa with a countdown clock, and Darth Vader. Only one of them has remained upright against the weather the last 2 nights.

It’s not Santa.

This was the computer that started everything for me. My parents later bought us an Acorn Electron (baby brother to the Beeb) which I loved. Played so many games after transcribing them from Electron User magazine! twitter.com/russty_ru…

This Globe Telecom ad hit me right in the feels. Well done.

Getting hungry. Thanks in advance, troop 25!

I no longer feel the need to see movies at midnight on their release. I’d be very content to see Rise it Skywalker any time the opening week. However, I have a tradition of taking my kids and (American) nephews to the movies over the holidays - so I have limited time to pre-watch

I love this time of year.

Tonight our cub scout pack (with the assistance of the scout troop) helped to stock our town’s cupboard of kindness. Helpful scouts, proud scout parent :)

Having seen so many stories about Apple Watch warning people about impending heart issues especially during the research phase they went through… im signing up for Apple research app and looking at what trials are interesting.

I’m very proud of Akamai’s Enterprise team. I’m also very proud of the cross functional internal adoption team.

.@Forrester named @Akamai a Zero Trust Leader, citing workload security, people/workforce security, #ZeroTrust vision and strategy, and more.

Sometimes we even traceroute (mtr) to them too! https://twitter.com/noIPv6/status/1187622314822684672

This mirrors my thoughts exactly. Why would you trust a VPN provider (and their providers) more than your own provider? Outsourcing privacy seems like a pretty big failure point. Make sure all your traffic is encrypted, push for eSNI and ditch the 3rd parties?

I’m no longer getting Microsoft tech support scams. Now I’m getting Apple ones. Nomorobo on my landline is catching them but not before my phone rings :(

Ready for #WALvFRA ? Not if you haven’t watched this yet
