Last 20 minutes at work for 2022 before my bus arrives and I am out of stuff to clean out, might as well try this microblogging thing.
Professionally speaking (non-job stuff will get its own post before the end of the year), 2022 went a lot less badly than I was expecting around this time last year. Sure there were all-nighters (somehow almost lost my voice at the end of one debugging sprint that lasted several days, I later learned about a thing called "psychogenic aphonia") and sure the LHC shutting down for about a month messed up all our plans... But other than that, seeing the product of about a decade worth of sweat from countless people all come together and work in unison as well as it did, was a great surprise, and relief. There was one last bug I wanted to fix before YETS but haven't managed, it will have to wait a couple of weeks. Until then, I'll repeat the yearly futile excercise of trying to fit into a handful of days about one year's worth of projects I keep trying to find the time and energy to work on.
