Hi there if you are in America I suggest you ASAP contact your congressperson and ask them to oppose the CASE act, a weird copyright bill being voted on tomorrow

Short version: Now in addition to normal courts plus the DMCA there'd be this new weird copyright quasi-court. By my read if notice is served and you don't respond within 60 days you could get hit with a $15,000 fine as default judgement. Sounds really easy to abuse.

This was one very unhappy idler pulley. It has now been replaced with a happier one. :)

I’ve gotten spoiled by SSDs and had managed to forget how slow spinning disks are.

How to tell a true friend: they strip the tracking identifiers and amp junk from a url before sharing it with you.

Wow my autocorrect was on a roll this morning.

I would love to see a Big Lebowski spinoff center on Walter Sobachek. I would totally watch that.

I'm not terribly motivated this morning so I have been half assing my work tasks while unsubscribing from promotional emails.

I took the day off today because I have more comp time and PTO[1] than I know what to do with. I’m making great use of Do Not Disturb on my phone so far.

[1] This could be because I never really remember to put PTO into the system for approval. :P

While not my mood today, this probably fits for some of you. :borglove: Stay strong.

Update: Against my cynical guesses, this is turning out fantastic. My wife loves it and has taken to Trello like a fish to water. Highly recommended!

I swear to god if I hear "Because that's the way we have always done it" again I'm going to start screaming.

I've adopted Kanban for personal tasks. I'm also inviting my wife to participate.

This should be fun.

Nifty, I live in the richest city in the US. I'm glad the Census Bureau could tell me that. The huge premium on *everything* wasn't an indicator. /s

Tried to change the oil on my Jeep today since it has 243k miles and I haven't changed the oil in ~20k miles. I was stymied by the oil drain plug, which made me feel lame until my lovely wife was kind enough to drive it to the oil change place, where they had to spend five minutes with an air impact wrench getting it off. =)

New task for the list: Setup inline oiler on the compressor so I can use my air impact wrench.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
