My family, without any prior warning, assigned my birthday this year a unicorn theme. All other things being equal, we made a good time of it. 🦄 🎈

I pushed a Docker container today.

I’m a devops professional now

“Our impression is that many developers never understood it was happening; in many cases, changes to third-party JavaScript embedded on websites introduced link decoration without web developers’ knowledge.” Yikes.

Me: Oh my goodness, it’s the incredibly rare temparate Atlanta day. I think I have to open my windows and enjoy it!

Leaf blowers: Think again, jackass.

We cancel and un-cancel so many people on a — not daily, hourly — over shreds of information no more or less substantive than single lines of throwaway quotation in a blog from god-knows-where and I’m just so exhausted by all of it. I can’t keep up.

Things normal people do a few glasses of wine in: Watch Netflix, laugh, DT their friends
Things I do: Theorycraft the API design of a Slack client I have no intent of actually making

What if Netflix remade 1985’s seminal Clue, and it was multi-path like Bandersnatch, but didn’t give the viewer the choice and seamlessly randomized the path? 📽😈

PA: “Unfortunately, a passenger traveling with us has a peanut allergy, so we will not serving peanuts on this flight.”
Guy in preboarding lane, wasting zero time: “Ugh. Just leave ‘em.”

Wild how much more compelling a stance can be when it isn’t written with the diction of a slighted 15-year-old in the MacRumors comments section.

Indie devs looking to project all their complaints onto this should find a more “indie” horse to back. 🙃

“Look at us, we’re basically paupers! Father could only afford to buy one podcast network this year!”

I was excited to hear about “Everyday Carry” as a class of product because it sounded like something I’d like, but then dismayed as it turned out to mostly be dudes who are into non-regulation camo patterns and hiding knives everywhere.

“This can’t be used for real web dev, it doesn’t use annotations like Spring!”

Me, flatly, doing my best Gene Wilder: Oh gosh. The humanity. Oh golly. How dare they. Who can save us from this
