‪Listening to Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash via Bluetooth headphones and an iPhone in the middle of the mass of humanity that is Penn Station gives it an entirely new dimensions.

This Lyft driver has SXM 126 Urban View on the radio and its all about getting African Americans to vote. So patriotic, so moving, I never hear this side... (where are my tissues)

"So this is the fabled magical library of Anorankh-Lar?"
"So what books about magic do you have?"
"None, that I know."
"But the library can move in space and time?"
"As far as I am aware, no."
"Then how is it magical?"
"It is a library."

Why does Apple voice recognition correctly transcribe your words until you hit the end button then all the words change to something else that make no grammatical sense? I mean it got it right the first time, but you know it Has to try to be better and as a result screws it up. Then I have to spend more time editing then it would if I had just typed it out to begin with.

So wait is @golemproject just AirBnB for video cards? Thats either insanely stupid or brilliant.

Especially when one of the Florecent lights is blinking in time to the music.

Hearing 80s Punk and New Wave on the supermarket Musac really kind of freaks me out.

Pet Peeve: super advanced technology allows high def video conference calls over the Internet, and people turn off their cameras.

Red Sox in the World Series is one of the very very few times I watch actual live TV. As a result I only got the absolute basic cable TV package with my Internet. Concast almost forces you to get TV. Like $10 a month cheaper to get a package with TV than without. However, the low-end package does not include HD channels. Because you know, they’re still in 1998 or some shit. So I end up having to pirate an HD stream over the Internet, and I am still forced to listen to Joe Buck.

So Google has Mr Rogers pimping the Pixel3. Mr Rogers. Not only are they evil they have no shame. None at all.

Do Lyft drivers prefer Max Tip or 5 ⭐️ in other words if you are a bad driver which one do I ding? Your cash or your reputation?

Me: Why does Rider never pick up pup poop?
Wife: The pups can drive cars, they can use a toilet.

@Savagejen wunderground is owned by theweatherchannel which is owned by IBM. For weather stations get Davis.

looking for a POE to WiFi bridge in a wall wart form factor, ideally with 2 POE ports. Does such a beast exist?

My furnace just died, looks like it blew a 5 amp blade fuse. Where the hell am I going to get one of those on a Sunday?

Bought a new cable modem, Comcast transferred me through 4 different people to activate it. They haven’t hung up on me yet though.

‪If you haven’t been following developments with Hurricane Michael this one is going to be bad, for very high values of bad. Only the 5th extreme wind warning from NWS, ever, super low pressure that’s still falling, crazy high surge.‬ From a weather hobbyist perspective this is awesome but if you’re anywhere near it get the fuck out.
