For the longest time I have been using the most excellent Dracula Theme but I recently discovered the Nord theme and have switched to it.


Switched from 1Password to BitWarden

Posted on Sun 20 May 2018 in Programs

Today I switch from 1Password to BitWarden. Now that I don't have a personal Mac anymore I wanted a password manager that would work on Linux. BitWarden has desktop clients for Windows, Mac, and Linux. They also have mobile clients for OSX and Android.

Their plugins work on all browsers including Microsft Edge which 1Password has never worked on.

Everything is also open source!


Goodbye EnergySavvy...Hello Oracle!

Posted on Sat 19 May 2018 in Misc

I was with EnergySavvy for almost four years but in April I decided to leave and pursue an opportunity at Oracle. I am working with a bunch of folks that used to work at Amazon.com around the time I was let go.

At some level it feels like a redemption.

Oracle is doing some really interesting things in the bare metal cloud space. I am working on the IO team and we manage Chef for the rest of the organization.

Due to Chef I am learning Ruby.


10 months and no social media

Just over 10 months ago I deleted all my social media accounts. I have not missed them at all.


Nier Automata

Posted on Sat 27 May 2017 in Games

Recently finished my third play through of Nier Automata and I am pretty sure this will be my game of the year. The story is great, the combat fluid and fast, the levels well designed and there are plenty of weapons and upgrades. I played it on a PS4 so I didn't run into any of the PC port issues. I am also glad I avoided spoilers (other than to play it more than once). There are two main characters: 2B, a female android, and 9S, a male android. You start playing as 2B. On the second play through you get to control 9S and see the game from a different perspective. On the third play through you get an entirely different game all together and a new female android, A2, is introduced. There are 26 possible endings of which five are "real" endings. The other 21 endings basically occur at different points in the game when it expects you to do something but you don't. I highly recommend this game to anyone.
