Also, if you are unable to afford this right now due to Corona and *gestures wildly* the world, DM me and I'll donate for an extra 25 trees and 0.5t of CO2 offset on your behalf this month ❀️ (up to 1000 trees)

Y'all if you're not offsetting your carbon using @Ecologi_hq@twitter.com you are really doing yourself, your community, and humanity a disservice. You may also be assisting evil alien carbon based life forms that wants to invade us.

It's like ~$5/month per adult: ecologi.com/?r=5d6b348c8b6b940

TIL that in `try…catch…finally` block, a return in the `finally` block supersedes a return in the `catch` block (though both are evaluated!).

This example is pulled straight from the manual: 3v4l.org/bVglD

Who knew?!

Shortcuts app for iOS is really a game changer. I'm automating so many things now.

I just created an automation that runs when I lay my phone down on the charging pad that will automatically turn on my @sleepcycle@twitter.com alarm based on my first meeting, or just analysis for weekend. 😍

Shit, @snipeyhead@twitter.com is stalking my tweets tonight… uhhhh what do I do?! Quick I need to think of something funny to say!

Hey Snipe! πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ’–

Me: I want some Riesen, I wonder if Amazon has them…

Also me: I guess I have to order 17 bags now…

Me: I have too many books to read in my backlog

Also me: Ooooh, free book! *Send to my Kindle*

Progressives: ACAB

Biden: I've picked the cop as my running mate.

Well done picking the worst possible choice to unite and better the party. There were multiple better choices, not the least of which is Warren. 🀬

I can't even with this nonsense. Killer Raccoons! 2! Dark Christmas in the Dark: trailers.apple.com/trailers/in (I'm still not sure whether I just watched the best or worst trailer ever…)

Last week I plugged my cable box in for the first time since November. I'm not saying I can live without cable (I need internet, and many shows I watch using my cable subscription, just on AppleTV), but I do think I can live without a cable box quite easily β€” less hardware = good

I have a google alert set up on my name from years back, and 999 times out of 1000 it's someone pirating one of my books, which is almost always useless to me, BUT, every now and then... it captures my tweets syncing to mastodon. πŸ™ƒ

I've run out of fucks when it comes to trying to separating my politics from my professional image: this stuff is too important and too integral to who I am and who I would want to work for/with anyway. So, I moved it to my personal blog: daveyshafik.com/archives/70712 2/2

I was going to tweet the link to a blog post I wrote after the 2016 election because I feel like it's still saying things I want to say, but I had published it on Medium because I wanted to keep my own blog politics free. However, as you might be able to tell from Twitter 1/2

I have definitely reached the no-I'm-not-turning-on-my-webcam-for-this-meeting hair style now :/
