Welcome

Interests

Linux and Free software

I'm a long-time Linux user, and I currently administer over 100 Ubuntu and CentOS systems in our company: servers as well as laptops and thin clients sharing multi-user resources. Most of this using Ansible.

Specialty coffee

Living in Colombia, it's a matter of pride to seek out the best local roasters, and I'm constantly exploring coffee from new regions and farms. My favorite method of brewing is espresso, but I also enjoy the sweetness that the Chemex brings to the cup.

Podcasts

A large part of the audio that I listen to througout the day is podcasts, for over ten years now; I'm currently subscribed to about 30 feeds. A recent favorite: Note to self.

Cooking

We renovated our apartment's kitchen, and we've been enjoying cooking and baking much more than before. Our most used appliance is the combination slow cooker/rice maker/ pressure cooker from InstantPot.

Travel

We've started getting more serious about traveling abroad at least twice a year. Having the right gear helps a lot, so we both now use Tom Bihn carry-on bags: no checked luggage means a lot less headaches. We also upgraded to what is possibly the best travel camera ever: The Sony RX-100 III.

Why just four seasons? Ancient Japan had 72 microseasons

Spring. Summer. Fall. Winter. Boring. Ancient Japan had 72 microseasons each lasting about five days. They each have wonderfully evocative names like "Spring Winds Thaw the Ice" and "The Maple and Ivy Turn Yellow." We just finished “The Bear Retreats to its Den,” and this microseason 64, falling immediately after the solstice, is called "The Common Heal-All Sprouts. (more…)
