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.

P.S.
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.

Suggestions?

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?

Alternative: YOU'RE NOT MY REAL MOM

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.

This racist thing with GOP trying to call COVID-19 the Chinese Virus and now the Wuhan Virus to try and blame China for their own inaction… honestly, I'm just surprised none of these bigoted fucks has called it the Oriental Virus yet. Maybe that's next? independent.co.uk/news/coronav
