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.

If you don't provide an rss feed, you're not a news site, you're an advertising site.

My only problem with the singular they is _calling_ it "singular they". People don't _use_ it as a singular. People get confused when you start saying "they is" instead of "they are" and such. It's just a plural 'they' that points to a set with one member.

Wait, I'm confused. Why are the kids freaking out that an actress played ... two different roles in two different properties?

Monday: A hundred emails an hour, "Buy from us buy from us!"

Tuesday: A hundred emails an hour, "Donate to us donate to us!"

Neither is appreciated.
Esp when it's from places I give money regularly.

My brain continues to be somewhat uncooperative in the "doing work on my non-paid projects" front, but I'm managing to make _some_ progress. A lot of it is yak-adjacent or worse, but it's still _progress_.

I added an actual spec! And almost have CI working via github actions. Yay.

Lesson: Don't let your babies grow up to be software developers. We're not healthy in the head.

At a guess, I think I've worked about 12-14 hours over the past four days, because I keep tweaking this script I've been working on and rerunning it. I'm pretty sure I'm done with all the functional bits and now just need to tweak some params for performance.

Kinda want to take tomorrow off tho.

psychoanalyzing myself based on what was probably about a half second realtime of dream (about three minutes or so dreamtime), and not liking the results overmuch.

So this evening, I discovered you can run VS code as a web service. And now I've paired my old razor orochi to my iPad, and will be playing around with writing code on it tomorrow.

Ok, we know the Enterprise D had cetacean ops, but I get never showing it. Very expensive. But why couldn’t Lower Decks have done it? Better give us something in S2.

That was really f'ing delicious and I want another but I would _die_.

Unrelated: Discovered I already _own_ an IP-controllable IR blaster, that I bought ages ago. It didn't work out for my purpose then and has been in storage since. Found it while clearing out another bin today. Will see if it still works later.

Breakfast: Leftover turkey, salt-crusted hasselback potatoes, and gravy. Lunch: Peanut-butter-chocolate pie.

Dinner: Turkey-mashed-potato-gravy bowl and a bottle of grape soda.

Oh, shit, I forgot the bit that came after it. Damn.

"You can't say things like that."
"Can't I? Says who?"
"Just about everyone you're going to meet for the rest of your life."

I love that bit.

So, it looks like there are no decent mail clients that work the way I want. Which means I can either suffer a new shitty experience, or pay to get rid of my current shitty experience. Yay.

This show has the single best opening scene of any Star Trek series ever.

I have given notice I may be skipping dinner, and crawled in to bed with some purple-flavored water, and I’m going to rewatch ST:LD from the start.

[has some sugar, just in case it's a very fast crash and the cgm is lagging]
