Despite whatever you might think about folks who work on tech spilling forth an utterance of curses - know that it is an essential verbal component to data witchery. Often used along with the somatic components, (🖕 is one you may be familiar with), the words weave a fine spell, in hopes it may be used to coax the device or process in question into obedience, or face banishment to oblivion.

i can't wait for the vaccines to be almost opened up to the general public and then suddenly the price goes up to $20k and the supply dries up so there's a permanent underclass of the unvaccinated

in previous years I felt like all of my PTO had to be saved for vacations away from home. due to covid, I can finally use them how I've wanted: get a whole week to stay at home and do house/garden stuff.

What's the best way to get started with Matrix, if I don't want to host my own server? Anyone got recommendations for clients and servers and the like?

having been close to one kind of addict or another my entire life, it's clear that when discussing addiction, moral valence of the addict's behavior should have a seat at the table, but not the biggest or frontmost seat. there are biological differences at work here.

that being said, I struggle intensely with it because when someone is in active Addict Mind, I reflexively become scornful at the drop of a hat, because of how I grew up. it's not helpful and I keep it in check but it's hard.

Good morning all. It’s Friday. Get it done. Have some fun. Time for the ceremonial coffee.

I'm wearing my new second hand upcycled robe/thing! 😍
It's made from old carpets.

I want to write a post about my thoughts, my emotions right now. I want to share a moment with you, reach out and connect for a second. But I don't have time. Because dinner. So this must be it.

We're getting to the point of the day where I'm feeling completely done with work. The bad part of this is that I haven't really accomplished anything at all.

Think for a moment about how many people needed to be ok with the way the Sonic movie was heading in order for you to see that trailer.

There is now a quality coffee maker with decent beans less than 20' from my desk. Either my productivity is about to increase or I'm my blood is going to vibrate out of my body.

To anyone whose Xamarin environments were broken by the XCode 10 update:

Make sure you open XCode and let it finalize its installation. It will install some stuff even after the Mac Store update is finished.

Also make sure you update Visual Studio for Mac. The Stable channel is working for me, but there's a "XCode 10 Preview" branch that might have additional changes if Stable isn't doing it for you.

It's official. I can think of no other thing more stressful than having to run someone else's D&D character through a 1-on-1 duel he might very well lose.

And the duel is to the death.

And you got him into the duel.
