Am I the only one who thinks Kotlin is a secret Russian plot to spy on all Android users? Have you ever looked at the compiler output for backdoors? Just me? /puts on third tinfoil hat

Love having to roll back my production changes because of out-of-control Rollbar errors, a problem that was likely introduced when I made changes requested by the reviewer of my pull request. Le sigh.

pounding headache and I should probably not be working but I really can't not work so this is definitely going to be a fun and not at all tortuous afternoon.

Its underlying dystopian futurism serves as a bleak warning to future generations.

I'm dead serious. It asks questions about the nature of man and the evolution of technology vis a vis an argument of fate vs. destiny. Truly Brian Johnson's masterpiece.

Take: "Who Made Who" is AC/DC's deepest, most ponderous and articulate lyrical achievement.

Working from home today instead of coworking 'cuz I have a dentist appointment this afternoon. Requesting thoughts/vibes for my mental health, I always struggle with the loneliness/isolation.

us politics 

I'm on the board of directors for my state democratic party - got elected to it as part of a "slate" of progressive reformers trying to fix/rebuild the party from the inside. Got a nasty email this morning from the "leader" of the "insurrection" about our poor attendance at the county committee meeting this weekend. I was at my son's FIRST robotics competition so fuck that guy. I'm checked out of politics at this point. I've been broken. It's pointless.

i have almost nothing to work on at work right now and that plus monday is a recipe for me feeling mopey and sad.

The real reason Gargron opens or closes is to manipulate the invite prices on the mastosoc invite black market.

There's not enough caffeine in the world to fight this depression-induced hopeless exhaustion on this rainy overcast day. zzzzzzz

It's weird that I evolved from a morning person to a night person. I thought you were supposed to become more of a morning person the older you got, but I seem to have done just the opposite. Instead of the early hours being my most productive, I can no longer get out of my own way. And I have a hard time making myself stop in the evening. I used to be the other way around. Happened gradually over the course of 5-10 years maybe?


Woke up this morning wanting to start an early-Pink Floyd cover band. Doing songs like Matilda Mother and See Emily Play and whatnot. I think that’d be fun af and the bar for technical musical talent isn’t that high. Plus I’d get to wear an ascot.

Would love to find a Firefox addon that always opened a specific site (in my case, my local newspaper to get around the "X articles per month" paywall) in Private Browsing mode, particularly when coming from outside the browser (in my case, clicking a link in my email client). Or I suppose I could just not be a cheapskate freeloader and pay for the content.
