TIL you can buy a commercial soft serve ice cream maker for less than $1500, do with that what you will.

OK, FFI in PHP 7.4 is super cool. I'm working on a [redacted] using Go compiled with buildmode=c-shared. I think I can do something really cool with this.

Dammit @scalzi@twitter.com knocks it out of the park again with The Last Emperox; what a great ending to the series!

So uh… @scalzi@twitter.com, when's the next book coming out? I don't care what it is, I'm already willing to buy it.

Thanks for political message in your acknowledgements πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

My projector added 3D video support which was quite exciting till I realized I have no 3D content.

I own one 3D Blu-ray, and I'm only half sure my PS4 can play it to anything but PSVR.

I also have XB1S/Apple TV, and I think I can load VLC on the projector.


How did I not pick up on Portal vibes from super hot before. Tempted to pick this up for PSVR (currently playing on XB1)

Me: oh goody, my gout flare up is starting to subside, I might be able to move around today

My gout:

Between the snow in May on the East coast and the fricken Murder Hornets on the West… Mother Nature is doing a better job enforcing stay at home than 45 😩

This is why you never ever ever use unprofessional language in tests. You might just send it out to your entire production user base. Oops πŸ™Š /cc @Hiya@twitter.com @brent_@twitter.com

Meditated for the first time in a long time tonight. I gave myself 10 minutes to just stop, & do nothing. It was good.

If you are new to meditation, I recommend @Headspace@twitter.com, they have a completely free 10 day basics routine that is a great intro. πŸ’š

My child (8) has learned the sad trombone but NOT the correct application of said trombone.

Me: let's play a game!
8: wah wah wah waaaaaaaaaah

Oh shit, maybe he DOES understand it?!

I have the best friends. The kind of friends who leave care packages in my garage.

Specifically a narrowband LTE dev kit from @twilio@twitter.com, which had the sim, board, battery, a bunch of sensors (GPS, range, temperature/humidity), and more!

Thanks @dead_lugosi@twitter.com! πŸ’–

Taking an impromptu nap due to exhaustion from existential dread is henceforth know as a Coronap.

My week:

Monday: feels like Monday ΰ² _ΰ² 
Tues-Thurs: feels like Friday… fuck why isn't it Friday?
Fri: feels like Monday ΰ² _ΰ² 
Sat-Sun: feels like Sunday aka feels like Monday tomorrow ΰ² _ΰ² 

I've worked from home for 10 years and the days still blur.

I have lived in this house for four years and not a day has gone by that this hasn't pissed me off. What would posses someone to put the decorative floor tile… thing off center from the door?! Can anyone give even a plausible sounding explanation for the sake of my sanity?

Hey twitter, I ran into a situation today where I'm trying to replace a particular cereal bowl. It's just supermarket bought so I thought it would be trivial. It doesn't even EXIST in google, so, now I'm curious:

What do you own that can't be found on google images?


Also, the subtlety in the common typo causing capital P pillow instead of "a pillow" when it's actually a proper noun, is what makes this even funnier to me. I… should probably sleep.
