About Me

I am employed as a software engineer by a high performance media trader. There, I use Python, C++, Go, and AWS.

I like parsimonious code, with simple interfaces and excellent documentation. I'm not interested in enterprise, boiler-plate, or cookie-cutter nonsense. I oppose cruft and obfuscation. My favourite languages are C, Go and Python. I wish I was better at Haskell.

comment why is Linux Mint/Ubuntu killing my CPUs?
It'll be a driver or VM software issue. Try installing it natively with a dual boot to get fully immersed into Linux.

comment Can I make SSH fail when a port forwarding fails?
The case I'm trying to avoid is that a port forward already exists, and a warning is given. I think this script will treat an existing binding to the port as success, rather than failure.
