Just to be 100% clear: "Full Stack" is bullshit. It means you're looking to pay someone once for two jobs, and/or it means you want someone mediocre at both. Back end and front end are very different types of skills, and it's damned near impossible to specialize in both while staying current on new developments. If someone _can_ do it, you should be paying them well north of 200.

Once again seriously considering having the nat box block twitter between 19:00 and 08:00.

Vimes gave up. The man had a point. The man had a whole sword. "Different strokes for different folks," he said.

"I find the one at shoulder height generally suffices," said Ahmed.

Outside of work, I think I've written maybe a dozen lines of code in the past six months.

Have I complained about the spiders in Satisfactory yet?

It's got an 'arachnophobia mode', which replaces the spider visuals with giant glitchy cat heads.

This, it turns out, is no less creepy. It is possible I have a tendency to scream when they appear and start coming at me.

Current status: laying in bed with a monster headache, and trying to bribe my coworkers to expedite deprecating a feature I don’t want to have to fix later.

A lot of the people I follow on TikTok are telling people to follow them on Instagram, in case TikTok gets blocked in the US. Problem is, I would literally rather use Chinese spyware than anything owned by Facebook.

Probably doesn’t say anything good that I’d rather trust authoritarians over capitalists.

So, it's said the trump regime is looking at banning tiktok. Because it's chinese spyware, _of course_, not because tiktokers made him look foolish, no, don't be silly.

I'm kinda torn. I, personally, don't care what data they're stealing of mine, but at the same time if it DOES get banned, I'll get back at least three hours a day.

disappointed to discover that motherfucker dot com does not redirect to samuel l jackson's website.

Don't look it up, it's not worth it.

What does it say about the state of the world when you log into a new Kindle app and the first book displayed is the us army counterinsurgency field manual?

not going out, so not spending as much money, so have a money reserve, so can spend it on expensive things (toy robot, robot vacuum).... so of course those things get more expensive and go out of stock.

Why does cause have to have effect?!?

I still struggle with figuring out when to give up on sleep and do something then trying again later. So instead I lay here, occasionally picking up the phone to poke at it.

I realize I’m not really on-call, just shadowing, but I still feel like I can’t take the sleepy drugs, so good morning insomnia.

Hm. Stomach is still unhappy, but doesn't hurt as much. Still, concerning.

My stomach hurts and I am not happy about it.

...I don’t know why I added the second part; seems like it would be obvious, either from what I actually said or from the fact that /I/ said it...

Aaaaand that's enough internet for the day. Time to find something healthier to do with my time. Like heroin, or autotrepanation, or lifting heavy objects.

I found my Sony MDR-V600s, and my Boostaroo, but it just can't drive them to the levels I'm looking for, and starts to distort towards the loud end as it is. Sad.

I have two polycarbonate chair mats, next to each other on the floor. I need to roll across the joint regularly. At the moment, I have them gaffe taped together, but I know that’s not going to last. What’s the best thing to use that will be more resilient on the long run?

Tiktok’s Following page is just showing me ancient videos I’ve already seen. I think there’s been ONE video from the past week so far. Good, that means I can put the phone down and go to sleep.
