Current status: humming Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie" to mock a friend.

VINCENT: It's the little differences. I mean, they got the same shit over there we got here, but, it's just, a little different.

JULES: Example?

VINCENT: Alright, well, you can walk into a movie theater in Amsterdam and buy a beer. And I don't mean in a paper cup. I'm takin' 'bout a glass of beer. You know when they get high in Paris?

JULES: 420?

VINCENT: No man they got the metric system there, they wouldn't know what the fuck a 420 is.

JULES: When do they get high then?


Rode 14 miles round trip today to buy ladybugs for my garden! Hopefully some will stick around for a while.

The most frustrating aspect of this project is that not only is the protocol undocumented, but every implementation seems to ignore the framing it itself finds in the messages it sends.

I'm tearing apart a protocol for an LED sign from the early 2000s, because the only software for it available now is a super convoluted WCF library and a frankly abominable Perl script.

I intend to have a library at the end of this that can actually be understood.

Also, if you get the chance, do play around with a Symon NetBrite, but realize that they're awful.

Sometimes you can tell when A Decision has been made, without knowing why or how, but just from observed responses.

My, there's been a bunch of issues opened with DHCPv6 in the last few days.

I suspect I just cleaned that heat pump filter for the first time ever.


Also we're getting another, better air filter for in here.

Well, pancetta was a whole other ordeal. I was ideally looking for about 5mm thick slices, and getting the poor dude there was… a process.

I liked the guy though, would definitely order from again.

The first challenge was selecting a cheese to slice. See, normally Kroger-brand would be significantly cheaper than Boar's Head, but due to conflicting sales they were the same price. A short internal debate raged on about which to select. He decided, since I was looking for my American at the deli counter and not individually wrapped, I probably preferred non-GMO type stuff, so I should take the Boar's Head.

The deli counter this afternoon was an adventure. The dude who helped me was very nice, but… kinda spacey. I had two things I wanted to get; American cheese and pancetta, and, well, each one was quite unusual in its own right.

Took a relaxing morning to make biscuits and sausage. I gotta work on the recipe for the biscuits a bit though.

I'm more than a little frustrated today with Google's decisions made around the use of vendor extensions in DHCP to denote a metered network.

I'm sorta frustrated with vendor extensions generally, TBH. This was not a well-designed part of the spec.

I'm interested to see how this goes; I might have overcrowded slightly, but I can always top up the soil, and worst case some of the extra Calendula can go.

I am so about to buy some _plants_. I haven't had access to full sun this good in ages.

"Can you tell me where to find hope?"
The witch thought. "Find? Why would you... Right. If you need to find hope, you will find it in other people."
"Is that so strange? To want to find hope?"
"No. No, it's not. But the people you find hope in? They make it. Hope is made."

My ten days to vacate the old apartment are almost up. My fitness tracker informs me that I have walked at least 15000 steps each day I've been moving, and my phone informs me that I have spent 13h less on it than the week prior.

So… that's a 200m apartment move in numbers, I guess.
