• The Week #199

    • πŸ– We had a BBQ with a couple of friends at friend's house nearby and it was a lot of fun. They've got a large chunk of land (probably what would fit 6 or so Japanese houses?) so they actually had a nice chunk of grass out back. They're close enough that I was able to load up a wagon and pull our contributions. On the menu was chicken tacos (corn + flour), roast beef, onions pulled directly from the garden, and craft beer and more. Excellent fun and good conversation.
    • πŸƒ I got two runs in last week, which rather happy about. The running itself isn't the hard part, but rather finding / making the time. Even a 30 minute run takes an hour when you factor in changing, showering, and a short warm up walk. Technically I have the time shortly after I wake up most days, but it's not quite hot enough outside to necessitate 5am runs.Β 
    • πŸŽ‰ Episode 16 of Inside Octopus Energy podcast is focused on Kraken. Worth mentioning on this blog because it includes a few couple of shout outs to my team in Japan for the AI / LLM product work we've done over the past couple of years. Always nice to get shout outs from the top.

    This is a bit of old news for someone who's been following this since the original Linux powering Munich experiments in the early 2000's.

    While native apps are arguably better for data entry heavy apps and everything's a web app these days, that everything's a web app today makes it easier for end users to run any OS. That said, it also means you can no longer do whatever you want with the "documents" produced by the app because they live in a database in their data center.
