packetcat reads 2022 Week 38 – Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Pages: 522
Purchased from: Kobo

A mystery thriller with a side of trauma. This book was a very intense read in certain areas and definitely needs some trigger warnings for sexual assault and physical violence. That said, I enjoyed reading this quite a bit. I love the main character and the magical world that the author has created here. I’ve put the second book in my wishlist for later.

Okay so, I finished this book in one five hour sitting on Monday. I haven’t finished a book in one sitting in years. This book is really good. Excellent characters, both alien and human with each alien species having very unique points of view and experiences.

Interactions between the Wayfarer’s characters which are the majority of this book’s contents are very well written and by the end of it I felt really connected with the characters. I may have cried a bit at multiple points in the book.

If you are a sci-fi fan, put this one in your queue, trust me you won’t regret it.

Notes from my server upgrades to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Almost two years after I wrote my notes from my server upgrades to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS I am here again to write about my upgrades to the current LTS which is 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish).

As is good practice for such upgrades I waited till the .1 release of the LTS was out to rule out any initial issues from the release. This time around I staggered out and planned out the upgrades over multiple weekends and I left the most difficult servers for last. I also kept notes of all the various issues/quirks I encountered when I did upgrades inside my Obsidian vault.

So let’s get into it.

Pages: 303
Purchased from: Kobo

Essentially a story of a honest guy making the best of the very complicated situations he gets put in. The world here is based on Addison’s other novel The Goblin Emperor and it is a very interesting fantasy world with intriguing characters, weird religious practices and apparently a huge culture of drinking tea which I personally appreciate.

This was a short and comfortable read, I am looking forward to reading The Goblin Emperor at some point in the feature.
