  • My Theories about Raised by Wolves

    After finishing the sixth episode in season 2 of Raised by Wolves – The Tree, I have some theories on what might be going one. So far everything has been a collection of mysteries and exploration. But, after seeing how the sea creatures interacted with Tempest and her baby, the result of contact with a […]

  • How to save on your Google Cloud Storage bill

    I use Google Cloud to host a static website. I deploy that particular website to App Engine via a Cloud Build process. To run the Cloud Build process I use two separate triggers – one for the main branch and one for the developer branch of a Git repository. Cloud Build provides convenience because it […]

  • Have a listen to the Serverless Programming episode from the Fragmented podcast

    The Serverless Programing episode from the Fragmented podcast is an excellent episode on starting and selling projects as a side or a hobby activity. It does not encompass everything, but it offers a good mindset on how to look at the success or failure of side projects. In addition, the episode talks about serverless architecture and how […]

  • Snow’s back

    Snow, snow, let it snow 🌨️ …. As long as there are no high winds and super low temperatures 🌬️🥶 I wish I could go skiing or snowboarding. I have not had the opportunity to do so since 2002!

  • First orchid flower for 2020

    First orchid bloom for this year. I have another plant currently budding. Should be blooming in a few weeks.

  • You served me well

    Time to say goodbye to my old laptop. I have had it for six or seven-year, and it has served me well. A few years back the hard drive controller started to exhibit issues, e.g. it did not always boot because it could not find the hard drive. Other times it worked fine, but any […]

    A good summary resource on naming conventions for system resources (servers, DNS, labels, etc.) in your network infrastructure. Be it your own data center or in someone else’s, i.e. the Cloud. Cloud Naming Convention
