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.

It came out even better than I expected. Now to see if I can successfully eat it. ::/

Trying the breakfast plan for lunch. Let’s see how much I regret it.

I found my nail files!

Two weeks. TWO WEEKS. My nails are a MESS.

AND my blood sugar is low, so I need to eat _something_ but the idea of eating _anything_ is _extremely_ unappealing.

I had Plans for breakfast. I knew exactly what I was going to make, how I was going to make it...

Woke up to a rebellious stomach, which scuttled the plan instantly. Yay.

I did a lot today, tho it doesn’t feel much like it.

Except physically. Physically, it feels very much like I did a lot today. Ow.

The upstairs neighbors seem to be extremely clumsy, as well.

I really REALLY need to spend some time this summer finishing the new, command-line version of ENIAC, and include a bit to generate the fail2ban jail.local config. I just added a bit to generate caddy/apache configs last night, for the migration to Geminga.

Well, figured out why offsite dns wasn't working when onsite was down. Fucking fail2ban had banned both offsite servers!

I need to find a better tool.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to make sure you reload the dns zones _before_ you start up caddy on the new server, or you've just buggered yourself for an hour by slamming into the ratelimit. [sigh]

Rather surprised to discover it's apparently been a year since my appendectomy?

Time is truly made up.

Woke up with my back hurting even more than yesterday. Took the day off work, then a muscle relaxant, and have lost about four hours to watching TikTok.

Would really like to accomplish something, anything, but vertical is for other people right now.

Given the state of my back, I think my unpacking plans are shot for the day. Maybe I should see if sitting up is viable, and play video games. At least then, I could drown out some of the noise.

At present, I categorize “considering going to the movie theater” under “suicidal ideation”, but the idea of getting out of the apartment for a few hours is certainly appealing right this moment.

Got up, emptied and reloaded the dishwasher, and washed my skillet in prep for making breakfast. By the time I was done my back hurt so much I’ve gone back to bed. Fuck breakfast. Also, fuck spines.

It’s bad enough I might be forced to go up there and inquire.

I literally do not have the words to express /how much/ I don’t want to do that.
