We’re getting a big-ass couch for the new house and I’m very excited about it.


This is my new best argument for why Fahrenheit is the better scale for weather temperatures.


All my stuff is in boxes but the truck isn’t loading up until tomorrow. Feels like I’m living in a big hotel room that looks like my house.


This is possible in many message-passing languages, including Objective-C. I once took advantage of this to bridge Mocha BDD-style tests from Node into XCTest for reporting (by defining test methods with long names with spaces).


I should have mentioned that the new house is not here in Austin, it’s in Littleton, CO! Finally making it back to the Denver area after several years away. It’s exciting!


Today is packing day! Gonna have a lot of stuff in boxes by the end of the day. And last night I cooked the last meal I’ll ever cook in Austin.



We’re so close to closing on this house; tomorrow it will be over. It’s been one of the most stressful things I’ve ever done, but at least once it’s done I can…focus on the other incredibly stressful events in my life.



I am quickly falling in love with Notion for getting my everything organized. I’ve never seen a tool like it before.


If I manage to get through this home-buying process without crumbling from stress, I’ll be able to do anything!



Just figured out that my email server’s reverse DNS was not right, so all my email interactions with Craigslist to try to sell things have been getting rejected. Oof.


Y’all were right: Russian Doll is really cool but that code review scene is a joke. A sick, sick joke.


I’m beyond excited about the Link’s Awakening remake for Switch. That game is very special to me. The footage they showed looks great!



I’m a huge sucker for good theme music, and The Adventure Zone’s Amnesty theme music is just incredible. It just hooks me every single time.


Bezos vs. National Enquirer is just Hogan/Thiel vs. Gawker 2.0. Just like last time, both sides are awful.


I was just about to get up and tidy up a bit, and then the dog cuddled up real close to me so I guess that task is gonna need to be pushed out a week.



Apparently today is the day that Ubuntu, Terraform, and vSphere decide they don’t like each other anymore, and I have to figure out how to make them get along.


I think I’m constantly confusing Rob Delaney and John Mulaney when I read their names.


Everyday I wish there was an established AWS-level cloud provider for macOS VMs, but I know if there was they would probably have a single-digit number of serious customers so I get it.


Adding Honeycomb events to the blogging engine since now there’s a free community edition. I really like Honeycomb and use it for work, but I was sad I couldn’t justify using it for side projects (it’s definitely priced more for real products).


Switched back to zsh yesterday and set up the Pure prompt. I really like it! My favorite thing is that apparently it does some of its work async, which means it doesn’t cause the prompt to lag for some Git information.


Told my wife I was gonna watch the Netflix Fyre Festival documentary and she was very upset that it wasn’t called Dumpster Fyre.
