Andy Weir released a new , Hail Mary! My to-read list is long enough now to last me to the end of the year :-)

The Martian was a 10 for me, and Artemis was about 9 or 8. Very excited about the new one!

Just cracked a why-the-hell-doesnt-it-work-its-EXACTLY-the-same-as-that-other-thing-that-does-work problem. Of course it wasn't "exactly" the same. Was fighting it since last week.

P.S. K8s should never happened to us. Damn youngsters following trends and fads just because some BigCos do.

I am of course not talking about people who hasn't done it yet but are about to, or have some legitimate concerns. I'm talking about those who just don't want to do it on principle.

CNN says the White House is discussing a new plan to expand domestic, warrantless surveillance of Americans—by paying private companies to infiltrate and report on the private social media groups of those it categorizes as "suspected extremists." t.co/RRkvoSgYyA

They gave me a *free snack* at the site! I did not expect such a service.

But the important part is getting that vaccine, of course.

Finally made some time to implement UI for assigning categories to my groceries. It's rudimentary and hideous, but now I can add some actual color!

And now comes the time for my kid to take part in the development process, as I promised her she's going to help me choose the palette :-)

Stumbled upon a dev tool touting editing code with "real-time collaboration" as a… feature. So I wonder, if I'm supposed to "collaborate" while writing code then when am I supposed to think?
