Like sewing, the basics of programming really aren't that hard, though it's easy to feel out of your depth when you're first starting. And the advanced capabilities can seem like straight up magic, even to otherwise accomplished craftspeople.

But there's no requirement that everyone be a tailor or a professional seamster! Any sewing you know is valuable. Same with programming: there's no requirement you be an expert -- any amount of programming you know is valuble. Even if it's just the "sewing on buttons" of using Excel formulas or writing a simple script.

Anyone use Manyverse (or any of the scuttlebutt things)?

Have been in zoom meetings on my couch with my M1 MBP for almost an hour. There are no fans running, my computer is not hot, and my battery indicator is still 93%.

WHAT SORCERY IS THIS

TFW when you microwave your coffee and your mug gets hot but your coffee is still cold

rant about missing force touch on iphone 

Seriously, how did they screw up this feature so badly. Text selection with Haptic Touch isn’t just basically unusable; it’s totally, completely, 100% unusable.

It makes me wish I still had my iPhone XS every time I try to edit text on my phone.

HAPTIC KEYBOARD CONTROL IS 1,000,000x WORSE THAN FORCE TOUCH KEYBOARD CONTROL WHY DID APPLE KILL ITS BEST SECRET FEATURE I’D KILL FOR IT BACK AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH

I have an iOS Shortcut that shares my Wordle score with everyone in a contacts group. About 1 in 5 times it doesn’t send to the last person in the group. Anyone know anything about that?

sound of music; nazis 

You wouldn’t think watching The Sound Of Music would be terrifying, but Nazis are terrifying.

After weeks of 90° temps, today feels like the perfect winery day.

It’s always nice to walk into a place where the entire staff is properly masked.

Fortunately I was able to cancel the purchase, so I'm not wasting $300 on stupid.

I haven't been able to find my car key for over a month. BMW wants almost $500 to replace it. I found one online for just under $300. My wife and I have been joking that as soon as I get a new one we'll find the missing one.

I bought the key yesterday.

She found my key today.

Reminds me of the Petworth Reading Room, may it’s memory resist in peace. 🍸

Ok. St. Vincent’s in DC. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

6 stars. I can do that here, right?

Make sure you hit the bar upstairs. Delicious live jazz. Tasty, tasty cocktails.

There’s an air conditioning vent under our kitchen sink, and I can’t tell you how much I absolutely HATE cold air blowing on just my feet.

Why. Why did society choose to ban plastic straws and not plastic carry-out containers or bags. WHY. DRINKING FROM A PAPER STRAW IS HORRIBLE. WHY.

Ah, scattered storm season.

Weather service at 4 pm: there is 0% chance of rain.

Weather service at 4:30 pm: deluge starting soon!
