Unless you have a very good reason not to, or are publicly known anyway, there is really no need for you to use your real name or photo online.

Back in the 90s when i first discovered the internet, this was common knowledge. Nobody used their real name on forums or share personal information without considering the consequences. Those few who did were promptly told that's a bad idea.

It seems somehow we unlearned this, right when corporations started monetizing that information.

If there's one thing I learned to fear about my coworkers, it's when they play League of Legends. First time actually seeing a match and them just storming through an ARAM match with Nunu is terrifying.

And thanks to this week, now I know what these words mean.

AAAAAAAAA

Why is that git gem so popular? It equates to calling Git a bunch of times from a shell script. github.com/ruby-git/ruby-git/b

At least Rugged uses libgit2, a real library meant for this kind of stuff.

Ooooh. That reply means now my text editor can send email too.

You can tell that people are old when they remember Digimon existed.

Squid in are about as dumb as they come. Can't even keep themselves hydrated with 8 glasses of water a day.

Back before this update, they were crafty and rare enough that ink was an uncommon material. Now it's just washing up on the shore.

Hopefully this will please the guy who claimed I had put up a "Cloudwall" because I decided to use CloudFlare. t.co/gbG4mbh0py

Here's the whole intro for Gemfire.
I like this concept, and the wizard crew.

Things rocx Thought He'd Never Say #1: "Make XMPP Great Againβ„’"

Yeah it's probably about time to migrate to a new instance where companies who would "increase their social presence" by even joining MySpace aren't polluting the timeline with their soulless garbage.

TIL: Handling errors like a "try-catch" block is done with the function condition-case and a "finally" with unwind-protect.

condition-case letting you specify which errors to execute alternatives based on seems pointless as there's only so few errors that exist. Not like people use define-error anyway. Meh. Better to have the feature than not.

RIP my GPA. The funeral will be held somewhere in December on break.

After today, it is safe to say I will never be a so-called "business analyst". No way will I have the skills or the desire for it.

Something must be up with my music tastes because Texan jams are starting to pile up in my playlist.

CoΓ―ncidence? Naaaaah.

Big confession: I've never heard Gangnam Style nor Despacito in their entirety because my ears fill with blood a few seconds in to the song.

How do these music suggestion engines go from some bluesy new classic rock to doom metal in zero to one point between?

And why does said doom metal need to last ten minutes per song?

Whenever you feel like you're not getting any work done, remember the time you caught your boss/supervisor on the Cookie Clicker.

"For freeing me from this lamp, you now have three wishes. Use them wisely."

"Uh uh uh I wish for a million dol-"

"Whoa buddy I just gave you the wishes. Didn't say I would grant them."

One nice thing about hurricanes pounding the coastline is that we're far enough inland that the weather is clearer for a few days.
