Confession: I don't like Boba because I'm terrified I'm going to choke to death on a ball. Sucking non-liquids through straws seems like a terrible idea in general.

Look, I know lots of y'all are hating on the Cats trailer, but can we please keep things in perspective and just take a moment to be thankful it's not a live-action remake of The Aristocats?

I really hate the new Drafts section addition in @SlackHQ@twitter.com; at least *duplicate* the channel/DM into it, so it's where I expect it when I don't know/remember I have a draft. I'd prefer an indicator in place however. Can I turn this off?!

So I was listening to my personal radio station on Apple Music and there was a great song that I didn't know so I hearted it JUST as it finished playing...Β and now I can't find it anywhere. The History doesn't show it,Β what the heck?! I am so mad rn!

(FTR: every time I publicly tweet it finally prompts a response from @FanaticsSupport@twitter.com in DM. Of course, they still can't fix their shit, so whatever.) twitter.com/dshafik/status/114

Ugh, I give up, I guess @Fanatics@twitter.com/@overwatchleague/@VancouverTitans doesn't want my money. What useless support. :/

I reset my iPhone home screen without thinking what it REALLY meant and now I can't find my most used apps.

Luckily I have eleventy-billion accidental screenshots of it, so I can reconstruct it.

- Diversity is a must. I want to work with URMs, BIPoC, LGBTQ+, folks with disabilities, and all ages, and companies who put in the work to make that happen. I want to see these folks in leadership, as well as being my peers. Transparency around pay would be amazing.

3/3

- I believe that leadership is different from management. I'm looking for great leadership, or you'll empower me to help create it. You pick :)
- Customer success is the only benchmark that matters. Customers can be users, or anyone who depends on your work (incl. internal).

Some clarifications:

- I'm also looking for alternative roles inside Akamai :)
- Open source is a requirement. I want to work with, contribute to, and open up projects, by default, not the other way around.
- I want to be an enabler. I want to remove friction from others.

After 8 years it's time to leave the travel life behind. I'm looking for a lower-travel role in DevRel leadership, Senior DevRel or Engineering (PHP/Golang/etc.)

I'm a polyglot/educator that loves to work on Dev Tools & educating folks on cool tech. Remote/~Seattle. DMs open :)

Realistic Alternatives to Inbox Zero:

Inbox Nero - burn it all down to the ground

Inbox Hero - highest score wins

Guess which one I'm playing.

Browser folks/HTTP client folks I have a quandary: if a request is made to example.ORG, with a Host:example.COM header, should cookies for example.ORG or example.COM be sent? Or neither/both? /cc @yoavweiss@twitter.com

The one thing I vehemently hate in the go code style...Β is the indentation (or lack thereof) for labels. That'll teach me for using goto I suppose! :(

Me: how do I define a variable in Golang again?

*12hrs later*

Also Me: yeah, I definitely feel like I'm proficient in Golang, seamlessly switching from another language like a pro.

Current status: trying out zsh as it will be the new default shell in macOS Catalina. My bash prompt has grown too slow and I have no idea how to fix it. :|

Oh, and @BriannaWu@twitter.com, proof that Permanent Residents can donate… you may not be my representative but you definitely represent the America I want to be part of πŸ’–

Got a personal call from @BriannaWu@twitter.com today, I was busy (and walking) but still wanted to take the time to wish her luck, and we chatted a little about immigration and other issues, even though I can't vote!

Then I got a follow up email, wishing me luck on my citizenship πŸ™ŒπŸΌβ€οΈ

OK, these so called mixed berry Cepacol/Strepsil cough drops taste fucking awful. I guess when the alternative taste is *coughing my lungs out* it's tolerable... but barely. Also, they're so strong on the numbing that I can't feel my face anymore.
