After too many years, I’m finally building myself a NAS: network-attached storage, a device for backing up files, photos, and all the data that is otherwise in the cloud. Say goodbye, FANGs, I’m going self-hosted.
Dee updated her CV and started looking for work in London today too — she applied for eight different roles, a nice start! (I took her out for dinner afterwards to congratulate her :-D.) The way I figure it, if she lands a role and we have to move I can just tell my work and they’ll have to relocate me to the London office!
Dinner was nice, and afterwards we sat and read our books and chatted idly. I’ve just started William Gibson’s “Neuromancer” — a classic by all accounts, and I can’t believe I’ve never read it before! It reads like a Shadowrun novel, but I’m pretty sure it pre-dates the game (and thus was a major inspiration for it, at the very least). I bought the book yesterday and I’m already half-way through it, despite the fact that I’m also reading Born On A Blue Day. More about that later, I think.
