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.

Watching imy2 covers on yt -> they sing Lucky Star -> there was a movie I liked that it wasn't the kind of movie I usually like, with a madonna song on the soundtrack -> imdb -> scroll scroll scroll -> With Honors, 1994, w/ Brendan Fraser, five years before The Mummy.

Today's accomplishments: Breakfast out of the house (sitdown). Lunch out of the house (drivethru). Music stuff as previously posted. Got voice control of my bed working again, rewriting the script to be ruby instead of python. Win.

oh, I can connect plex to last.fm, that's nice. [clicky]

I created a Plex playlist, filtered to unrated music tracks played in the last 2 months, called "You should be able to rate these".

Just logged into my last.fm account for the first time in... ten years, apparently. 31,063 scrobbles, last one dated 9 Aug 2011.

Cancelling my Amazon Music Unlimited subscription, since the walls on that particular garden are too high. There's _no_ way to extract liked track data, etc. I can get better features from Youtube Music.

So now I have an extremely expensive rock sitting on my desk. And all the oh-so-helpful instructions on the internet for creating installation media ASSUME YOU HAVE A WINDOWS MACHINE TO USE. Fucking useless.

Cool. My basically-brand-new Alienware locked up, had to be power-cycled, and then wouldn't boot without crashing immediately. Tried to restore, failed. Tried to reset, failed. Tried to reinstall, failed.

Coming up on five weeks since I got my nails done, and I've had to glue two back on so far. Should I just let them fall off and get new ones, or prioritize getting fills this weekend, and only replace the two that've failed?

antivax fud on work slack, boy howdy am I filled with rage.

"Are you an AMC stockholder? Let us know and get an initial FREE large popcorn." Way to play to the moment, if after a rather corporate-standard delay.

Got an email from tt.fm that they're finally open. Go thru signup, only to find that you need an apple music or spotify subscription. So, guess I won't finish signing up right now. ::(

My polycarbonate chair mat, with the "will never crack" promise, has cracked extremely badly and is stabbing me with sharp bits. Guess it's time to buy another.

@tithonium ... never mind just saw your next toot.

"petrologic" is technically incorrect, as it's of or relating to the study of rocks, but probably close enough.

"lithic avicide" doesn't taste right, if you understand me.

What's an adjective for "of or pertaining to rocks"? I'm looking for a word to fit before 'avicide', to make a comment about the phase "kill two birds with one stone"

. o O ( Why do I feel weird? Ohhh, right, took my.. sleep medicine early. And double. Riiiiight. )

$604 for wraparound prescription sunglasses is extravagant and wasteful, right?
