(I mean, that's not what I said to them but I sure as hell would like to!)

Our client is questioning the architecture of this distributed system we're building for them, and I'm like, "Bitch, it took me three weeks of intense thought, and I cracked my skull open coming up with that design."

I wonder what Bill Gates' day-to-day life looks like ๐Ÿค”

My office is about five blocks away from the venue and I can't concentrate.

*groan* This is the day I promised I'd go back to the gym, so here I go, I guess.

@arturovm Nice reminder in your toot. Sometimes the image you want is found in the photo frame. In printing or editing, a simple crop can make something amazing.

@arturovm Yes! It is a tough thing. Stick with it though. Similarly landscapes can be the same way, your eyes see one thing, but the camera fails to capture it. Yup, I just took a picture of rocks and grass. Damn it.

After seeing William Eggleston and Martin Parr's work, I've been inspired to try more ambitious shots of mundane things, but I'm failing miserably :(

@arturovm big problem nowadays: too much distraction. Maybe we should have kept dial-up modems where you were either online or offline.

Sometimes I wish writing code was a more analog profession so I could have neat desk with all sorts of fancy office supplies in pastel colors.

I made myself sit down and write for half an hour. I intended to write for an hour but I wasted half of that on Twitter. Still, I believe this is a win for my self-discipline, so, yay?
