This weekend I've been reading heavily up on , SSL, socket programming in , SMAP, and a lot of thought on other stuff. Brain feels fuzzy right now.

Spent a large portion of my spare time the last couple weeks working on a BHAG-scale project which has required me to learn and read a *lot*. Great opportunities if I succeed. So excited.

Too early for details right now. While I don't know if I will succeed, but even if I don't, it would be the most satisfying failure of my life. :D

Somewhere in the desert I saw the brightest rainbow I'd ever seen, glaring its bright colors vividly and insistently.

"Open Source" is dead, people. Time to move on. #proprietarysoftware is "open" now. #nsa back doors don't preclude "open"

Microsoft is "open"

Everyone is "open"

Pure #openwashing

Time to talk about #freesw instead.

Just found and bought a copy of 'The Linux Command Line'. For my 13-year old son.

Whenever I read "skeleton crew" I imagine a necromancer employed to raise up a small crew and manage them for the duration.

It took me playing with mods to realize that Bugenhagen is riding on a ball. All my life I thought he was just a floaty, bulbous dude.

Wonderful video about differing personalities: "What's Your Type? Jean Kummerow TED"

Once I was watching Tek Jr splash around at swim lessons. A woman commented to her friend that she was there with her son, but wouldn't allow her daughter to swim because "you know how the water makes girls fat."

Wait, you mean her little daughter can never splash around in cool water on a hot day with her brother because Mom is insane?

So of course I butted in conversationally: "oh, were you a swimmer?"

Well. If you ever need to start World War III, ask me for details.

All these developers going nuts about Windows getting the Linux kernel built in, when Linux has had the Linux kernel built in this whole time...

🤷‍♂️
