So I did start a project, to write a puppet-dashboard, it is functionally complete, but the next step is to allow me to raise alerts based on failing runs of puppet - in real-time.
(i.e. Now that I have a dashboard I wish to not use it. I want to be alerted to failures, without having to remember to go look for them. Something puppet-dashboard can't do ..)
In other news a while back I slipped in a casual note about having a brain scan done, here in sunny Helsinki.
One of the cool things about that experience, in addition to being told I wasn't going to drop dead that particular day, was that the radiologist told me that I could pay €25 to get a copy of my brain data in DICOM format.
I've not yet played with this very much, but I couldn't resist a brief animation:
- See my brain.
- Not the best quality, or the best detail, but damn. It is my brain.
- I shall do better with more experimentation I think.
- After I posted it my wife, a doctor, corrected me: That wasn't a gif of my brain, instead it was a gif of my skull. D'oh!
