Pinned toot

Today I had to do the "numbers geek" portion of my job. I gallantly supported my team as they explained to our clients that:

1. 63% of 12 is less than 12.

2. 4 is more than 3.

Sadly, this is my life, and not actually a joke.

when I first ran D&D, my grandmother, who had bought fully into the IT'S SATANISM hype, insisted on sitting and watching the first session

about an hour in, she threw her hands up and yelled 'THIS IS JUST MATH' and stormed off

@gdorn and @pinkprius inspired me to make a vegan pizza. This was probably my best crust ever, and it was my first attempt at "sausage." Overall, it exceeded expectations. I'll also express thanks to my partner who made a last minute suggestion that saved the sausage after I'd failed and given up on it.

Allegiant Airlines interprets a friend asking them to send me a copy of an itinerary as my consent to be on every one of their marketing email lists (of which there are 15). Not cool!

Easy meal tonight. I roasted some veggies and put them in a bowl over wold rice with some white beans. Then topped the whole mess with pine nuts and balsamic.

Stopped off for Greek food on my way home last night. Large group at the next table is having a heated disagreement about someone. Then:

Man: That woman is a saint!
Woman: Yes. But she's been excommunicated.

What have I become that I receive this as a legitimate work-related email and barely flinch?

Most of you are probably just starting your weekends, but I'm ending mine and heading off to work.

On Mondays, when most of the world is just starting their week and I'm halfway through it sounds like a good idea to take Thursdays and Fridays off. I feel even better on Wednesdays when my weekend is just starting.

But Saturdays sure suck.

Enjoy your weekend everybody!

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

What's going on at home today?

1. The house is filled with a light haze.
2. I gave my partner an impromptu lesson about the smoke point of various cooking oils.

Something great about working on weekends in that people often bring in food from whatever they've been doing with their families.

Today one of my team brought in homemade salsa, homemade guacamole, AND homemade tortilla chips. She made her own chips. And they are amazing.

I know some of the folks I follow have recently changed instances.

Have any tips to share about things that caught you off guard?

Or has anyone written a guide?

Am I making this more complicated than I should?
