had dinner with the folks last night before the restrictions on gatherings of >2 people come in

Dad makes a comment along the lines of "well it's a capitalist system - it's inherently unstable"

now I don't know if Dad's slowly drifting left or he's gone full ecofascist????

leftypol gripe 

some users tested a website I've been building for a volunteer org today

none of them had any major complaints - we found like 2 bugs and there's a few other things to do before pushing to prod

but given that I have like..no UX training/knowledge and everyone seemed to think that the UX was good, I'm pretty fuckin stoked.

"hey that's weird behaviour, I wonder why it's happening"
*open up code*
"oh"

well, that's an easy fix

love 2 find a work item where the only information other than the title is the acceptance criteria:

- Bug fixed
- Unit test

One of the many good things about having my parents dog over for the day while my gf and I wfh:

She (a cat-lover) is becoming more on-board with getting a dog.

the more I learn about COM, the more I'm amazed that 90s Windows worked /at all/.

Starting to appreciate how awful DLL hell was, given I'm too young to really have experienced it

love to start the day with a "Operation Failed. [-10004] Internal Error (Impossible)"

"If we view ourselves as besieged victims who need to go into hiding, then we will cultivate fear and hoarding. If we view ourselves as a community working hard to protect the most vulnerable among us, then we will cultivate courage and helping. Mindset matters."

Nice to be able to play something with my gf, though
