#introductions are a thing I guess
Hi I'm James, I live in San Francisco (but am trying to move to Oakland) and have worked for a series of startups and write software and build systems and do operations. I have pet #rabbits that I'll probably toot pictures of. You can find my (non-micro) blog at https://www.roguelazer.com.

I jinxed it. Comcast is refusing to let me do a self service install and the next appointment that I can be here for is a month away. No internet for me. Too bad they have a total monopoly on anything faster than 1.5 Mbps.
I just had a legitimately great phone support experience with Comcast... I think the tech was more knowledgable than every major telco tech I've ever talked to... It must be the end times!
Speaking of fiction involving robots, you should play The Talos Principle if you enjoy puzzle games or robots. It's finally out for Xbox so you can play it on all the major platforms.
Ugh it's that time of year when I need to figure out how to renew the APNS certificates for our MDM provider.
is this some kind of sex thing?
Sent quote requests to a half-dozen window companies to put in double-paned low-e windows at the new house. Might as well try to do all the projects up front. Anyone have a favorite kind of window?
