Great news for people with huge faces

Now that I'm gluten-free, going to birthdays with my kids that serve pizza, Chick-fil-a nuggets, and cake is pretty much torture.

I love to complain about Comcast when something's wrong, but I just realized my service has been working pretty great for the past year or so 👍

The "bigint" data type was invented by a British programmer and stands for "big, isn't it?"

I love the fact that I genuinely learn things when I’m interviewing candidates. It’s easy since I’m newer to frontend than some of them, but I hope I can keep up that attitude as I get more experience.

Also I recommend an interview approach where the interviewer can learn things

Me: “I wish git would give me the change history for just part of a file.”

Me: “The timestamp is June, it looks like maybe it’s an old version of the book.”
Also me: “Wait today is *June 2019* already!?!?” t.co/ibR2dv6nFa

(That was just for the pun; I always hate troubleshooting datetime errors) t.co/1GiFNCHrtn

Usually I don’t mind troubleshooting datetime errors but yesterday it wasn’t the right time

Just had a York Peppermint Patty followed by a bacon-flavored beef jerky; ask me nothing
