I swear these shots are the two seconds right before a truly epic fight scene between us and the quarantine zombie horde.

Anyways we're married now.

Look out zombies.

We are *trying* to teach the dogs how to dance but they're just not cooperating

I mean all code bites you on the ass eventually, but clever code has so many teeth.

Me, a couple minutes ago: “this library is cool and kind of clever, which should have been my first warning sign. Universal rule of code: if it’s clever, it *will* bite you on the ass sooner or later.”

One last day of marathon onboarding for my replacement. Nokia's making sure to get every last dollar of value out of my contract, that's for sure.

Not complaining TBH beyond generic "ugh people." Thinking how barebones my start was, and glad to make someone else's better.

WELCOME TO DEVOPS WITH BRIAN

Another FOUR HOUR pairing session today. Final one tomorrow. That's eight days total. Thirty two hours of making word noises with my mouth meat.

broke it down and i have not talked this much for this many days since running the daily vampire sessions a few decades ago

I don't know the folks who run Spotify. I don't know what drives them. But from everything I've seen from them ever, I would've been downright shocked if they chose Neil Young over Joe Rogan.

Hell I have to go out of my way to find music there. It's MTV all over again.

Little tourist moments in . Graffiti at the statue's base caught my eye so I looked it up and <bigstockphoto.com/image-204062> says "ORSOVA ROMANIA - 09.01.2017: Danubia statue the monument of the victims of the communist system" though its tag's a bit more pointed.

I got 13 repos on my Gitea and ten of them are alternate versions of my blog.

Introvert vs extrovert is insufficient. I dislike interacting with unfamiliar humans. Downright anxiety, right?

But I've been doing infodumps with my replacement 4h daily all week. Loved it. Scheduled more for next week.

First to say "ambivert" has to clean the whiteboard.

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.
