I'm waking up to ash and dust,
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust.
I'm breathing in the chemicals...

Using my day off to run errands. One haircut later, I feel human again!

I just sat down to tinker on the piano for the first time in years. I got ten seconds in and the dog started whining. 😥

reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)

"Okay, here's 'license' and 'registration'. 'We're sorry, officer! We won't do it again!'"
Karen Walker is the best role model...

Question for the Fediverse: if you were visiting someone's personal blog, how offended would you be if that person were to use Google Analytics? What if they were using Matomo (formerly Piwik)? I'm curious to see how much my website is actually viewed, but I want to respect peoples' privacy.

That bullshit isn't even tribal knowledge, if literally only one person knows how to do something.

Actual conversation today:

Me: "Is there documentation anywhere on how to do XYZ?"
Coworker: "Yes."
Me: "Where is it?"
Coworker: "In my head."

THAT'S NOT FREAKING DOCUMENTATION.

Today marks five years since I first came out!

Developers: DOCUMENT. YOUR. CODE.

Not just the classes, but also the overarching concepts.

I just found out that I have to redo a bunch of code at work, because I assumed a file would be parsed as it's first read in, instead of being passed to its final destination and THEN parsed.
