Pinned toot

Hello all! I'm Russ. I'm based in Western New York state. I like Linux, use Vim occasionally, and mostly program for the web at work. I recently lost 140 pounds and I try to hit the gym three times a week. I'm all about self improvement! Have a good day!

Our code, which is in git, hallowed be thy semicolons. Thy work be done, in prod as it is in local. Give us this day our daily error messages. And forgive us our commits, as we forgive those who ask us for more features. And lead us not into technical debt, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the DOM, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Stallman.

I'm at the hospital. My dad may have had a stroke. His wife, my stepmom, is holding his hand right now. It's a sad Valentine's day here. I feel like I'm on a roller coaster moving down a steep hill. Please be kind to the people you love, and tell them you love them, every chance you get.

I have a love hate relationship with emails from websites regarding security alerts. On the one hand, I appreciate like hell the one time, one time, that I've gotten one of those emails (out of the probable hundreds of times) that it was a successful hack of an account of mine. Every other time has been an annoyance, and this last time, Netflix decided to send an email to my wife detailing that I tried logging in while working from home. Thank you Netflix.

If you need me, I'll be in the dog house.

well, well, well, if it isn't the consequences of my own actions

I don't know how I got this far: loving Rick & Morty but eschewing Dr. Who. I'm finishing up watching the episode 1 from "Doctor Who Season 1" on Amazon and it's pretty not bad.

People can change.

Why arguments against a 70% marginal tax rate for income over $10 million is absurd (look at all that money they'd STILL have):

Thinking on starting a cult of personality. First thing, I have to get a personality.

Yes, you married a nerd. Yes, I just described a touchscreen as sexy. Deal with it.

Every time I solve a puzzle in TIS-100 it makes the young programmer in my heart feel alive again.

Days since the string "weiner" has been inadvertently pushed to prod:


The recent decision to allow the offshore developer free reign to create new solutions in the cloud has lead to resentment among the local developers stuck utilizing a terrible VPS provider... and all I gotta say is...

Color scheme preferences are like coffee preferences, and about as important in the grand scheme of things:

It doesn't matter if it's light or dark, just don't get bitter over the small stuff and everything will be fine.
