Pinned toot

Fellow nerds: I'm starting to work on a project that involves highlighting weird and fun WP plugins.

If you have a favorite that you'd like to share, take a few seconds and let me know about it!

Me, switching back to my 60% keyboard after spending the past month on a tenkeyless:

P.S. I know that MP3s are already iPhone friendly, but my preferred audiobook app on iOS (Bound) doesn't seem to like the way the chapters in "Little Brother" are all split up.

Wow. As soon as I sent that toot, a jock busted through our front door, ran into my office, and gave me a wedgie. 😮

Recompiling ffmpeg with AAC support on my personal machine so I can use m4b-tool to make iPhone friendly audiobooks out of Doctorow's "Little Brother" Kickstarter rewards.

That thing where your wife is walking on the treadmill to the beat of the song you're listening to on your headphones and you can kind of hear her doing it.

My betting strategy:

1. Always bet on the Tacos.
2. Always bet against the Firefighters.
3. Always bet on the Shoe Thieves.
4. Bet on the underdogs for every other game.
5. Max your bets (with Snake Oil) as much as you can.
6. ...
7. Profit!

Stay 72° and Infinite, my friends.

Best possible outcome from Oracle v Google is I'm never able to write code ever again and I just stop using computers.

How is David Lee Roth's "Crazy from the Heat" not available as an audiobook? Dude _loves_ the sound of his own voice...

Infinite Detail has got me listening to 90’s jungle. No regrets.

Yesterday I exercised, ate mindfully, and drank plenty of water. Kind of a rough morning at work, but not the worst day.

Then, I went and watched that stupid US presidential debate while making dinner.

As best as I can figure, my cortisol levels spiked *so much* from watching that my fasting blood sugar this morning was ~10 points higher (!) than it normally is. 😖

It would appear that Lunchclub invite spam is the new LinkedIn invite spam... 🤨

I just hope this doesn't throw me off of my current rhythm.

Not trying to flex, but I've blasted through *a dozen* audiobooks in just under six weeks.

Alright, alright... Maybe I'm trying to flex _a little bit_. 😄

Fortunately, the book (Infinite Detail) is engaging enough to justify the more intentional listen.

While my anglophile ears enjoy audiobooks where the reader has an English accent, I feel like I have to listen at a slower speed (1.5X vs my usual 2–2.5X) in order to not miss anything.

Honestly? I don't hate it.

In fact, I hope they keep the pastels as the default. It's rather soothing.

I wouldn't go putting a production site on it rn, but I am very interested in playing with it.
