Sony helpfully e-mailed me to tell me how many hours I spent playing video games last year. (Not enough, because I still had time to keep up with the news.)

Should have let that Red Leicester breathe. Oh well, I'll just have to eat more of it.

Whew, got my big project and all its subcomponents building successfully with Maven (and passing all tests). This was the third time I'd attempted the switch from ANT, first time I'd had the time and clear head to succeed.

Redditor explains new Intel bug: "You're in a VR game as a busty asian girl and you're locked in a room with bill cosby and matt lauer. You have to run backwards while slapping their hands away which normally isn't a problem because your hand slapping skills are level asian, but intel allows speculative execution on branch prediction, which means both of them turn into vishnu-like 8 arm cosby and lauers with arms that appear and disappear into the ether. Long story short your tits aren't safe."

A parakeet's hearing is sensitive enough to detect cling film being removed from leftover lasagna from two rooms away.

It's been a terrible year in so many ways, but the Cernovich Reddit AMA has restored a little of my hope for humanity.

Now the parakeet's trying to use the printer to buy postage from stamps.com. Good luck getting the password right, you little flocker!

Yesterday in Elite: Dangerous I made the 80 minute run to Hutton Orbital. My wife still can't believe I play this game.

I now know more than I ever wanted to know about OAuth2, OpenID Connect and OmniAuth… but I wrestled the damn thing into submission.
