#WestWing S5E19 is darkly ironic in retrospect. Now all of those newsrooms are owned by about five companies, and the line about displaced tech workers having to "work at some video rental joint"... really didn't age well.
Here’s a weird error message that occurred after updating to #macOS 10.15.2…
We have this bug at work where a certain piece of closed-source software assumes a 1472-byte UDP payload will never be fragmented and thus breaks in IPv6. There's only one instance of the constant 0x5c0 in the binary. What are the odds that everything would break terribly if I just replace that 0x5c0 with a 0x5ac in the binary?
I always forget that the default #Kafka partition assigner for consumer groups is braindead and that changing to StickyAssignor or RoundRobinAssignor should be the first step in any project.
So, now that #rust 1.39 is out, what are everyone's favorite stable-only, non-actix web frameworks to use as demos for the new async/await stuff?
Is #wireguard totally broken on iOS 13.2 for anyone else? Other clients still work fine, but all upgraded iOS devices hang forever connecting...
Zipcar feels like it’s gotten a lot worse over the last few years: https://www.roguelazer.com/2019/10/zipcar/

I bought some Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW earbuds recently and, if anyone is looking for Bluetooth earbuds to use with an iOS device, I'd highly recommend them. Great audio quality (they support AAC which is the top thing to look for in Bluetooth audio devices to use with iOS), crazy-long battery life, reasonably comfortable, and they block most of the BART screech without giving me an ANC headache.
