Your life must be pretty nice if your biggest problem involves how much you hate Slack's new logo.

Things that keep raising their price while somehow getting incrementally worse:

- Amazon Prime
- Netflix

As long as people keep paying for it, companies will think that they can get away with it.

We have two milkweed plants in our yard and the amount of butterflies we have during the spring and summer months can only be described as magical.

me: has the majority of his wife's christmas presents purchased before the end of november

also me: waits until christmas eve to start wrapping gifts

Two days off, then one day on, then six days off, then one day on, then one day off.

TBH, I'm looking forward to this (self-thrown) monkey wrench aimed directly at my end-of-year productivity. Just wish I had two more 2018 vacation days to burn.

Somee of the keys on my MacBook are doing that thing where they double up or don'tt reegister a keypress at all. Makes me feeel like I can't fuucking type anymor.

Went to upgrade my work MacBook to 10.14.2 and am running into the black screen of death.

Fuck me. It has not been a good week for running updates.

Doing my best to stay true to my word. Now that 5.0.x has had a bugfix release — last week's security release doesn't count — I've upgraded all of my sites.

Managed to whitescreen my personal site while upgrading from 4.9.9 to 5.0.2.

Turns out that it was a plugin problem (and not a core problem) but holy shit did I get irrationally spicy about it for a minute...

Feeling pretty accomplished after I managed to find a plaintext file (898MB) that made BBEdit choke.

To be clear, I'm not one of those anti-Gutenberg babies. I'm excited for the future of the platform.

But I also feel like 5.0 was rushed just so Matt could call it "shipped" during his State of the Word address. I'd rather wait two weeks for 5.0.1, see how things are, and then upgrade.

Held off on updating to 5.0 on all of my personal sites until after 5.0.1 drops. It's the first time in years that I'm not on the latest and greatest within minutes of the release.

I backed a hardware project (open source USB-C FIDO2 keys) on Kickstarter that funded at the end of October. All signs currently point to me having it before the end of 2018.

I have never experienced such a quick turnaround on a Kickstarter project before. Massive respect to the folks in charge of Solo.
