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.
Here's a new #introduction for new visitors... Show more
Hello! I do Ops at Amazon, but don't hold it against me. I'm married to the best person I know and have 4yr old twin boys I'm teaching to be empathetic, careful and considered members of society and also D&D.
I dig music. I drink coffee. I play games. I have a greyhound, Rufus; he's a lovable idiot. I have a golden apple tattoo and a fishbones tattoo and one made of unicode characters and so far I've resisted getting more. So far.
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!
By the by, 1950s Nick Fury is absurd.
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. #DND
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
