The design of the goblins in the Spiderwick Chronicles are so good. I would feel so handsome and confident if I looked like this: (Description: a drawing of a toadish goblin, facing forward and wearing a scarf.) #GoblinWeek2021

@cypnk Must've stolen my credit card because I just got off the phone and someone's made $3,000 of fraudulent purchases for cabin blueprints and survival supplies.😆​

Oh, got an e-mail saying the gas station is closed because someone hauling a horse trailer couldn't stop coming down and the hill and drove into it...

And an e-mail from the post master saying there's no mail today. Truck couldn't get up from Phoenix.

... guess it's a bit icy out there.

Been working with the Geolocation API the last couple of weeks...

... and no wonder every site under the sun pops up trying to authenticate it. This API is way to easy to use for the amount of personal data that it gives up.

It shouldn't be so easy...

I have committed or seen all of these sins committed in the wild.

  • Big module of "lib" containing all the crap no one could bother organizing
  • Just naming something "Manager" or "Handler"
  • Naming variables "$data," because that's informative.
  • I may have once worked on a team named after an Anime mecha that combines into a bigger mecha...
  • I once saw a "Core" team created to work entirely on abstractions and library code for the other two "product" teams. They were all layed off the next quarter.

Before reading the article, I'd really been considering upgrading to a nice ergonomic stool... but it really put the dots together for me that maybe I don't need to throw hundreds of dollars down and my cheapo solution is actually much better for me.

This was a nice listen over the dishes tonight. The thing that struck out at me was the comment on how backed chairs cause back pain.

The only time I ever had lower back pain from work was when I worked at an office and sat in a very nice ergonomic chair.

Growing up, I had so many relatives complaining about back pain and going through endless fancy ergonomic chairs. I always thought it was just inevitable and yet other than that short office stint, I've never had back pain.

I keep hearing that Docker is dead. What is replacing it that would work well for a single host?

Pour him another...

And into thee Ed tub he goes.

This is okay, probably would’ve liked it better if i hadn’t just watched Touch of Evil which had everything I want in a noir.
