Oof a lot of incidents this week! Tiring but I think I’m good at making calls with this stuff and I don’t really get stressed about them. “Nobody dies if the FT goes down” is my mantra. One of the issues was a pretty nasty XSS attack which was quite a fun one to fix.
We were also onboarding an engineer who’s bootcamping with our team. By the end of week one he’s contributed a decent amount and got a good taste of all the different work our team does 💪
Four days to go before some time off 🎉 I’ll be writing weeknotes from Tokyo this time next week!
On Friday we visited Tammy and Marcus and ordered almost every item from the Taco menu to share and rate. Turns out the tacos are the worst bit? It was a fun evening, we played Priorities which is quite a fun party game, I might buy a copy.
Because we’re away quite a lot over the next few months, we’ve been doing family visits. On Saturday we went to see Charlotte’s nephew who’s 3 months old now, he’s very chill and very cute.
On Sunday my mum and brother popped over and we spent the whole day together. Lots of chatting, lots of eating, and a couple of games. It was lovely.
Later on Jenn came over and then refused to leave, which is why I’m writing these at 22:30. Rude 💛
