My desktop computer locked up while I was doing system updates and I had to reboot and now it has no kernel to load and I need to boot from a LiveCD to fix it, but my laptop doesn't have a disk drive to burn a LiveCD and I have no USB keys so I have to go buy one and hope I can get EFI to boot from it and this is really not how I imagined my weekend starting 🙃
Some random personal #SkyTrain stats
Since 2015-02-15, I've logged 3572 rides on SkyTrain vehicles.
As of today, I've ridden all 150 of the Mark I vehicles, all 260 of the first-gen and 348 of the second-gen Mark II vehicles, and 31/60 of the Mark III vehicles.
My most frequent ride is apparently 213, followed by 233 (which is my favourite first-gen Mark II train because of the LED headlights).
“Why I have a problem with React the library and spend a lot of time talking to my therapist”

HTML spec is optimistic as ever.
