Yes! Vaccine appointment booked for tomorrow! Put that Pfizer in me.


Colorado now has COVID vaccines open to the general public but it looks like there aren't any appointments available anywhere near me. Guess I'll have to keep trying.


I finished Gideon the Ninth faster than any book I've read in recent memory. It's really good, gave me many feelings.


I have to write a self-review for work today instead of playing a bunch more Miles Morales, keep me in your thoughts and prayers please.


I think an entire year passed between when I started believing I probably had ADHD and when I made an appointment, and someone helped me make the appointment.

Hey friends, did you know that the Yakuza games are pretty good!?


The PS5 arrived today! I didn't even realize it had shipped yet, but here it is!



I managed to order a PS5 finally! I'm so nervous GameStop is gonna cancel it or something, but hopefully this is it.


I don't really do the evening binges, but the rest of these are definitely a big part of my relationship with food.

Who in recruiting did I anger that caused them to schedule me to do an interview at 9am Monday morning?

(It was probably an automated system but there's nothing funny about that)


I'm content to live in fear of the oven. It has burned me on several occasions.

Scraping Prometheus metrics with Nomad and Consul Connect

Consul Connect is a great way to set up a service mesh, but because it protects services with mutual TLS behind a proxy, it's not immediately clear how to use Prometheus to scrape metrics from services in the mesh. Let's go through exactly what you need to do to expose your service's metrics while keeping the rest of your service protected, and then we can see what you need to do to get Prometheus scraping your instances.

Work today is pushing the limits of my understanding of IP networking. Shit is not working and I have no idea why.


It's just a coincidence that Notion is down two days after I moved Relay.swift's docs off of them, right?


My WebAuthn Vault plugin is working! Registering both TouchID and my YubiKey works, and I can use them to get a Vault token. This is so rad.


Uh oh, looks like I might have tricked myself into writing a WebAuthn auth plugin for Vault.



Yesterday Twitter gave me delightful sea shanty Tiktok and today it gave me bean dad, so that's some serious whiplash.


I've spent like 8 hours today playing Horizon: Zero Dawn and I don't even really want to stop.


My reMarkable tablet arrived today which was 4 days earlier than it was supposed to!


Now that iOS 14 and friends have been out for a while, I've released v1.0.0 of Relay.swift, which removes support for iOS 13, macOS 10.15, etc. By doing so, I got to fix some bugs (thanks to StateObject) and improve the APIs so they mesh better with the rest of SwiftUI.


Love to be walking around Freeside and a random thug comes to attack me and see Veronica just deck him so hard he dies on the spot.



Yay! I finished Advent of Code with Rust, a language I was learning as I went along. And it worked: I definitely know Rust much better than I did before. I'm no expert, but I could start a project in it now without being totally overwhelmed, and that's pretty cool!


All I want for Christmas is to read everyone's stories of their family Christmas drama.


I would very much like an offshoot of The Adventure Zone but it's Sydney DMing for Teylor, Rileigh, and Tommy.



After this week, I'll be off work for two straight weeks. It would be so choice if I could somehow get myself a PS5 before then.
