SPLAT! this is particularly interesting to me as i've been studying up on collisions in gamedev lately

Was on a rare excursion yesterday and saw this 8 track tape in package at a bus stop. I didn’t grab it—because I generally don’t grab things I find at bus stops—but I wonder what this thing’s story was

So I woke up in the middle of the night and tapped this into my obsidian daily journal:

  • aliens put something weird on the moon because they think it looks hilarious but we don’t get the joke

I am on-call at work. My pager went off. I forgot that I'd given it the sound of a train crossing bell because I was very anxious I'd miss it.

Well, I certainly didn't miss it when it went off today. Not sure my choice did much to address my anxiety.

@lori Yeah, I really miss those days of batteries. I even used to sometimes keep a charged spare in my bag on trips

@goran The last one I tried to replace in a MacBook Pro was all glued in and took a few hours to get free. Maybe they're easier lately? ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Pro+1

I couldn't imagine doing this sort of parts-swap for anything Apple these days. Though, to be fair, I guess I did just read that ifixit gave them a 7 out of 10 for repairability on the new iPhone 14

Just replaced the battery in my wife's 2015-era Dell XPS 13" laptop for the 3rd time. This a) is annoying but b) I had a replacement overnight and c) it took 2 small screwdrivers and 15 minutes to replace it. So, not too bad. I'm mainly concerned about when they stop making batteries for this machine. It's a nice little laptop, except for the nose-cam

My impression is that it's an Oregon-appropriate substitute for a speedsuit ala Dr. Venture venturebrothers.fandom.com/wik

Today's thought: is a loose fit denim bib overall the right fashion choice for me this fall?

Immediately after I posted this, Cosmo (in the middle) got up onto a bookshelf and knocked over a plastic pumpkin
