you know how a coupla years back, just as the Outage Machine was really starting to hum, there was this orthogonal push to stop tweeting about your lunch, because nobody cares about your sandwich? that was the thing I loved best about Twitter: people sharing their most mundane, their most regular experiences. It's like a warm blanket, mercifully free of judgement and outrage. I'm no Buddhist, but I really dig the concept of the sacredness of the every day.

I had grilled cheese with bacon, btw.

discovered a technical limitation that means a design i wrote six months ago, implemented, and was getting ready to release needs to be completely rethought and I'm not sure I have the mana.

I gotta stop listening to The The at work.

New Coffee Bean Day is my second favourite day, after New Sheets On The Bed Day.

I've had an OSS project in production for 21 years. the current version is a django/googlemaps heroku app. I spent the evening upgrading it after 4yrs of uptime.

I have no idea who uses it, or how often -- I have no analytics on it whatsoever -- but 4yrs ago when it had problems (google maps deprecated v1) I got an email from a user, and got another one yesterday.

By many measures it is not high-quality software. But after 21 years people still notice when it is offline, and that's not bad.

happy to have the chemex back in rotation. It was at the back of the cabinet so long I forgot I still had it!

Steranko's run on Nick Fury is so good. look at this stuff.

I have defeated you, market! all your filthy treasures are mine!

was supposed to go to the farmer's market but Ballard Seafood Festival is coincident so I just noped right out of there.

the Last Jedi was approximately as good as some of the other Star Wars movies.

The party escaped Hell! And they actually succeeded a divine intervention roll at level 4. Which I'm sure will have no negative repercussions, having beseeched a trickster god for help.


fuel, courtesy @epu. look at that color.

please, my dog, he's very algorithmically stitched together.

good morning my little monophonic remasters

good morning my little lost alternate takes

Added the timeline I'm tracking for the D&D campaign to the website. BBEG activities redacted, naturally. >:)
