You: I think the coffee maker is broken.
Me: Boost the confinement beam.
You: What? That's not...
Me: Transfer auxiliary power to shields.
You: You can't just say random-
Me: Run a level three diagnostic on the deflector array.
You: (sobbing) Stop...
Me: Make it so.

Also managed to do 25km of bike and 5km of walking today.

I read conditions for a governmental tender, and I see that this institution went under some major trauma in the past:

- They require 90% documentation coverage;
- Conditions explicitly forbid deleting comments before giving them the code (what kind of people even do that);
- Cyclomatic complexity less than 20 (once again: what kind of people);

Is there science fiction that predicted antivaxers?

Not like, people rejecting cures and embracing disease because they have deeply-held religious objections or w/e, but people rejecting cures and embracing disease because they just kind of don't trust anything and/or get spun up about extremely unlikely pet theories.

Also one of side project got a big milestone, client will launch pilot study using my code. Hope it will work all right.

Talk I'm co-authoring just got accepted for . I'm super-happy.

Today was total dumpster fire. Our partner was critical to testing part of payment functionality (getting alipay accounts outside China is like, not easy).

And what is the best time to test it than Friday?

All went well though.

Becky Chambers' "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" is the warmest, most wholesome sci-fi I've read in a long time. It feels like if Firefly and Star Trek: TNG had a baby.

It follows a tiny, ramshackle starship with a crew that's roughly half human, half alien. The alien species are well fleshed out; in fact, a big focus of the book is the crewmembers learning to navigate each other's cultures and love each other despite their differences. Grabbing the sequels ASAP.
