I tried to play Bloodborne today. I haven’t gotten too far: I’m very bad at it. But we did make Stanos, the unholy genetic combo of Thanos and Stan Lee. So that’s fun.

I added a reading list page to my website. I’m going to try to keep it up to date with what I’m reading and planning to read. I think it’s cool to have a timeline of this motivating me to read more.

Ordered some sweet Gatsby swag from their store the other day. Excited for it to get here! Sad they were out of the socks, which look awesome, though.

If Marzipan gets me a macOS Messages app with feature parity with the iOS version, I’m all for it! That would be enough.

Every Slack workspace needs a #dogs channel. It should be there by default tbh.

Just diagnosed an issue with the WiFi router where the 2.4GHz network was down, but 5GHz was fine. So the printer and the thermostat couldn’t connect but everything else was fine. No idea how it got messed up that way; the router just got misconfigured somehow.

I think I might be incapable of going to sleep at a time that would actually feel good the next day. My brain apparently starts churning at 10:30 and won’t stop wanting to do things.

Jack is considering taking away literally the only remaining good thing about Twitter.

Just finished watching The O.A. part 1, and I am so full of questions!

I have this urge to make more websites with Gatsby but I don’t have any real reason to do so.

I wonder if this year will be the year where I can resist installing the iOS beta on my phone.

Is there a central list of tech conferences that is indexed by location? I’d love to go to lots of local conferences (I don’t like traveling) but I’m not sure how to discover them other than organically.

I’m excited to be attending DevOpsDays Denver in two weeks! This will actually be the first tech conference I’ve been to where I wasn’t working, so I can actually just attend the event.

I set up Forestry.io as a CMS for my site. It’s very slick, and has very nice support for structured editing of my page content through its Front Matter Templates. Thanks to David Hollis for mentioning it to me (even though he doesn’t use the CMS).

I totally agree: the presence of dogs makes a workplace less inclusive. I have dogs, and love dogs, but a workplace needs to feel safe and comfortable for the people in it, and dogs can easily prevent that.

Aunt Hilda is the best character on Sabrina and nobody can convince me otherwise.

I finally did it: all of Travis CI’s internal services for running macOS builds are running on Kubernetes.

I feel like doing some learning today. What are your favorite cloud or DevOps related talks?

This makes me so mad because filing taxes is a huge source of stress for me (and surely many others) and it’s so unnecessary!

I nearly made a $15,000 error in my taxes this year! It shouldn’t even be possible to do that.

Oh no I finished all the important work on the new website and now I don’t know what to do with myself.

I’m finally doing my taxes, so it’s that time of year to remember that it’s Intuit’s lobbying that has kept the tax code so complicated that you need TurboTax to be able to file your return.

I redid my website this past week using Gatsby and deploying to Netlify. It’s going to be much easier to iterate and improve on it now. I’m very excited about this change!

When do I get a tell-all story on why Westworld S2 was such a mess?

Has anyone tried combining Typography.js and Tailwind? Tailwind’s base styles (resets) cancel out Typography, but without them all the sizes for things are out of whack.

I spilled my coffee on my foot this morning so today is off to a real good start!

The fact that NPM is still hiring after laying people off says an awful lot. They need people, just not “those people.” 🙄

Just migrated from my own email server to FastMail. I probably should have done this a while ago.
