edit: oh yeah, also started keeping quails recently not sure if you're allowed to where you are, but they're 1% maintenance (check water every 2nd day, shake feeder while there, check for eggs) but quite nice to have around cause they're beautifully coloured and sound like mini chickens



Australia has parties called bush doofs where everyone drives ~2 hours away from the city into the bush for a 2-3 day event and setup lasers/stages/bands/fires/etc with huge speaker arrays that you can hear pretty easy when you start getting within ~5-10km of it they're *technically* illegal, but just goes to show you can already get away with that just 2 hours from the city without getting busted. It's pretty easy to be alone here if you want
I actually picked BMXing back up a few weeks ago. But with a screwed up body not too smart to do freestyle like I used to. Unfortunately kids have been grounded the past 2 weeks so no riding.

I did the first proper honey harvest from my hive yesterday, ended up getting ~11kg :O stoked! And we only took 5 frames (there's 2 boxes with 8 frames each as well as the brood box). Next harvest should be 1/2 each box so 8 frames total, based off this one I'm expecting a yield of 18kg+

The vid below is one frame, and there's two sides per frame.

Neat. I had a great-uncle who kept bees. Every time we went to visit he would give us a quart of fresh raw honey, always with a chunk of comb in it. Nothing beats honey like that.

I'd like to do something like that but I'm highly allergic to bees

So, for those curious... a certain companies special yearly event is most likely July 15th to the 22nd... Just a heads up for those that like that special time of year when they can get goodies at a steeeeep discount.

No, I can't name said company, nor state anything, NDA and all that good jaz, but it typically happens around that time of year. >.>

Was pretty great. We get free food, including fruit, hot drinks, soft drinks, etc. Got a bit of swag in the form of a branded hoodie and some polos.

Team is great. The job is much more technical than my last, which I like. Lots of scrub-tier vendor training to do over the next few weeks, but should be interesting enough. Was doing some Palo Alto today after my general induction and introduction to the ticketing and case management systems.

Third day of new job. Getting used to the ticketing system, policies, etc. Been going through the course content of the Palo Alto 110, in prep for my 210 at the end of June. Also got an AeroHive training course at the start of June which will be more my thing, so I've been going through their troubleshooting guides and getting used to their product lines. If anyone knows Palo Alto, Aerohive, Gemalto, or SafeNet, you'll probably get bugged by me sooner or later
