https://vimeo.com/71278954 - The future of programming circa 1974, given in a talk in 2014. TL;DW we are still programming like it's 1974.

Sysadmin

http://blog.petersobot.com/pipes-and-filters - A really simple introduction to what is going on in a unix pipe. Good to remind yourself of the basics sometimes.

https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/ - I have been watching hours or Paul Sellers videos. He has such a great presenting style. Just watching him work is a pleasure. It's all hand tools as well so it a much more relaxed pace. I am seriously concierding treating myself to one of his courses.
