Non-work banter and water cooler conversation

A place for non-work-related flimflam, faffing, hodge-podge or jibber-jabber you’d prefer to keep out of more focused work-related channels.

Now if we could just get more companies to offer a tier with pricing somewhere between free and “your firstborn child.”

Open Source Is at a Crossroads

The cracks are beginning to show in this global ecosystem, as many projects lack the basic funding to sustain the software that literally runs the world.

Hello fellow Cloud Engineers, I been trying to connect two cloud providers AWS and GCP and found this documentation https://cloud.google.com/network-connectivity/docs/vpn/how-to/creating-ha-vpn

I already config and set it up. And the result was good, connection both instances are pinging. Now, I’m trying to stream my database in aws to GCP ( BigQuery ) and I found this example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMo6Zgkvt40 on the 2:31 of the video, I saw that he created a profile that connected to the AWS and this is the part I stuck, Question is do you have guys an example how to connect it? I’m trying to setup AWS RDS MYSQL? I appreciate your help.

The sale was conducted under a prearranged 10b5-1 trading plan, which allows company insiders to set up a predetermined plan to sell stocks at a time when they are not in possession of material non-public information.

As HashiCorp’s Chief Marketing Officer Marc Holmes cashes in on his shares, investors might be curious about the company’s financial health and market performance. HashiCorp’s recent metrics from InvestingPro shed light on its current standing. With a market capitalization of $6.61 billion, the company holds a notable position in its sector. Despite a negative P/E ratio of -33.36, reflecting challenges in profitability over the last twelve months, HashiCorp boasts an impressive gross profit margin of 81.46%, indicating strong control over its cost of goods sold relative to its revenue, which stands at $583.14 million for the same period.

Most of the top executives at just about all companies have automatic share sales to avoid insider trading issues. Armon, Dave, Mitchell, Navam, etc, etc will often show up in these reports. This AI generated article also ignores the fact that he’s technically selling these shares at a “loss” because the IBM purchase price is $35/share.

If you’re going to grasp at straws, at least find sound ones.

I appreciate the career advice, but I’ve gotten this far without it.

I’ve worked for the US Air Force, a number of smaller software firms (one that became much larger–HashiCorp), a union, a technology consultancy firm and Hewlett-Packard. I’ve grown in many ways from all of them. I didn’t think I’d like Hewlett-Packard, but working for them gave me a much greater scale of responsibilities I’d get from smaller firms. I was the principle Solutions Engineer for all of Asia Pacific for a particular product line and learned a tremendous amount from doing that.

Maybe more importantly is that I’ve seen a number of shifts in the last 28 years I’ve worked in tech and if there’s anything I’ve learned it’s that nothing is static. Being able to adjust to change and do so with value to the industry is far more important than chasing “shiny new things”. The projects, products and processes will inevitably change. Knowing what brings true value to organizations is far more important to me than being a foot soldier in short term skirmishes.

Thanks for the replies. I know where you are from. You’ve got all my respects for what you’ve done for your country. Recent years, I said too many “You don’t see what I see”. I always appreciate the persons who opened my eyes. It is just the time I feel I need to stand up to show the supports to the people who are confused or not certain of what is happening :)
