Transiting Debris around a White Dwarf
Back in 2015, Andrew Vanderburg (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) and colleagues published their findings about the white dwarf WD 1145+017, located in Virgo about 570 light years from Earth. The researchers were working with data from the rejuvenated K2 mission, which revealed that light from the star was periodically dimmed by a series of objects. The rocky bodies responsible were, the paper suggested, disintegrating, leaving traces of calcium, iron and aluminium on the white dwarf’s surface.

Two weeks ago, my landline stopped ringing
Any time my landline rang, I knew exactly who'd be calling. It was either going to be my mother, because she refuses to let go of the landline (in the same way she refuses to let go of DVD movies, putting walnuts in brownies, and birthday cards with a cheque inside), or it would be a charity-donation call, usually Diabetes Australia (but I'd just tell them I only donated to Kidney Health Australia.

The world’s worst boss | Seth's Blog
The world’s worst boss
That would be you.

Even if you’re not self-employed, your boss is you. You manage your career, your day, your responses. You manage how you sell your services and your education and the way you talk to yourself.

Odds are, you’re doing it poorly.

If you had a manager that talked to you the way you talked to you, you’d quit. If you had a boss that wasted as much of your time as you do, they’d fire her. If an organization developed its employees as poorly as you are developing yourself, it would soon go under.

I’m amazed at how often people choose to fail when they go out on their own or when they end up in one of those rare jobs that encourages one to set an agenda and manage themselves. Faced with the freedom to excel, they falter and hesitate and stall and ultimately punt.

We are surprised when someone self-directed arrives on the scene. Someone who figures out a way to work from home and then turns that into a two-year journey, laptop in hand, as they explore the world while doing their job. We are shocked that someone uses evenings and weekends to get a second education or start a useful new side business. And we’re envious when we encounter someone who has managed to bootstrap themselves into happiness, as if that’s rare or even uncalled for.

There are few good books on being a good manager. Fewer still on managing yourself. It’s hard to think of a more essential thing to learn.

Telstra Essential Plus review: Essentially good value | finder.com.au
The latest rebranded Alcatel phone to arrive with a quick coat of Telstra paint is the Telstra Essential Plus. It's a slightly reworked Alcatel 1, which means it joins the very small family of phones running Android Oreo Go here in Australia. It's also only $99 outright, which means it's extremely affordable.

Google Cloud Platform - The Good, Bad, and Ugly (It's Mostly Good) - Deps
Deps is a private, hosted, Maven repository. While building it I had a critical decision to make - Where to host it? I evaluated many different hosting services but decided on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). I’ve been using it in pre-production and then production for over a year and a half now. I haven’t seen too many experience reports on Google Cloud, so I wanted to share how I’ve found it, what went well, and what still needs improving.
