When Harley is trying to say “ho ho ho” it is wise to confirm that she has not acquired a machine gun.

I loathe horror but I also rather enjoy sff fiction where the protagonist is left utterly emotionally scourged. Go figure.

Oh look, the new Seth Dickinson book is out. Hello.

Wanted: The Odyssey or Beowulf recited with the same metre and rhythm as Run-DMC “It’s Like That”

Coals are lighting up to smoke some beans, and then later, some chicken.

Lamda does Scheduled Execution, but that's cron, not delayed execution.
SQS could almost be bent into shape with Message Visibility, but it would need something else on the end to handle cancellation. And there's a ceiling on the delay, five minutes I think.
But if I had to build this thing myself, that's might be how I'd do it, because I don't want to have to work with Quartz.

I want a cloudshit, Delayed Execution As A Service.

Invoke a function (Lambda or whatever) with payload X but it doesn't actually get run until after Y ms. Receive back an id Z, which can be used to cancel the execution if needed.

It's basically for an escalation system - unless an ACK is received after a few minutes, escalate alert to the next recipient. Right now there are workers polling to see if they need to do anything, which is sub-optimal.

I know, it's good, legitimate science.

But still, I wonder.

Was the decision to give the octopi molly made while on molly?

Stupid idea - database migrations powered by git diff. All tables have to be defined as files in a repo as CREATE TABLE statements
To create migrations it runs `git diff master..`. Any new rows are added to the migration as `alter table add` statements. Any changed rows are alter column statements, etc. Such a dumb idea that I've already created the git repo for my joke implementation.

I may have to go to the sea so I can throw my copies of MarioKart into it

Kids vs Trains - which will be the primary vector for the human-eradicating plague, you decide.

So I’m hearing that the takeaway from the shuttering of Google Reader was “Gee I hope Google doesn’t do this to me again”

So....basically someone has found a way to make money off their bong water.

Been planning the meal for November 9th for months now. It requires three days of prep.

Mandatory offsite has been booked for Nov 7th-9th.

Might have to resign.

Just once. Just one single solitary time.

I would like to spell remuneration correctly the first time and yes, I typed 'renumeration' just then as well.


My favourite part of this is the older girl labelling as "dime-store feminism" what is basically mainstream feminism today.

I’m going to book an appointment with my GP just so I can say “Says you, Doctor Man!” when he tells me I need to see a physio about this pain in my elbow every time I pick up my fry pan.

At home, watching To All the Boys I’ve Loved, and getting dog hair off my coat. Rock on!!🤘
