Managed to get another 3 weeks of groceries in the trunk of the Miata. Didn't even have to use the parcel shelf!

That much weight completely changed the character of the car though.

Being on the internet is a lot like talking with the fae. Giving your true name will give power over you, and you should be wary of any strangers offering you gifts.


Has the GOP forgotten that like, we're all literally in the process of paying their salaries this month?

Flylo's 1983 will always be a perfect track, for me.

We've been getting by ok for the last year, but not so ok that I could just go to the grocery store and buy whatever I wanted. I finally have a stable enough source of income to afford little treats like kombucha again and fucking all of society is collapsing in on itself and we still have to carefully ration food.

Fuck this, and fuck hoarders.

fucking hell, joe biden shouldn't have ever been on anyone's radar as a presidential candidate in 2020, how did we get here (I don't need answers, I already know. I need enough coffee ice cream that I can just eat until I die)

resident evil spoilers? 

Every morning as my brain boots up for the day the horrors of our current reality slot in one by one, like classic macos kernel extensions

...ate several meals, took a shower, IMed a bunch of people, started refactoring some code, couldn't concentrate, watched youtube for a couple hours, made a pot of Thai coffee, read 5 chapters of Moby Dick, browsed reddit, wallowed in existential despair, /got over it/, listened to a couple of albums...

In the time it took Digital Ocean to respond to my ticket asking to be approved for higher tier droplets, I:

Spun up a new test environment on a Google Compute VM

Ran several tests

Got a full night's sleep

Had a conversation with my boss about hosting our own server for this application

Compiled test benchmarks for both systems and wrote a report about why even if we could use the higher DO tiers, Google Compute is probably better for us, but we should just use our own machine anyway.
