Cataclysm server is now up and updated

A #rgrd visitor informed me that my Cataclysm server had failed. It turns out that Whales, the developer of Cataclysm, has stopped maintaining his repository in a state that won’t compile. Luckily, there are many forks! I chose to switch my scripts over to point at DarklingWolf’s mod, CataclysmDDA, primarily because that’s what the internet told me to do. The website for the mod is located here, and here’s the information about the SSH setup.

Happy surviving!


New year, new job

My new employers!

I’m now a sales engineer at AppNeta, and I’ve written about the experience of my first few weeks on the company blog. Probably my favorite thing about the job is not mentioned in that post. Originally I was told that I might see more like a 90-10 or 80-20 breakdown of time doing sales to time engineering. I’ve actually been able to do much better than that! I’ve already worked on instrumentation for Drupal, Solr, and Varnish and I’ll be working on Twisted instrumentation next week at the Boston Python meetup. A lot of that work is far off from production, but some has already been merged into master! :D

I’m still a little mystified, though, by the way they play music (incl. dubstep!) on the sales floor. Oh well, maybe that will change when we move to a new building…
