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.

The night before an early morning appointment, when you need to get up two hours earlier than usual, is exactly when you want to have digestive problems that prevent sleep.

Evidence seems to be mounting for gastroparesis. ::/

A badly timed coincidence of circumstances has left me extremely sad today, to an extreme that cannot be tempered by any amount of linen sheets. Music isn’t doing anything either, so far.

[makes quiet comfy contented noises while completely failing to go to sleep]

It’s a good thing I forget about this so quickly, or I’d spend a literally obscene amount of money on new sheets every month.

Seriously, I’m sorry to harp on this, but as nice as linen sheets are, _brand new linen sheets_ are a special kind of ecstasy. Worth selling one’s immortal soul to humans for.

When I was a young man, I sort of scoffed at Odin‘s obsession with linen (see Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul).

I. Was. So. Foolish.

This message brought to you by my brand new dark slate linen sheets from Cultiver.

I realize the mythbusters part isn’t really news, but it was news to me.

Poking around at Discovery+ and am not impressed so far: * firetv app sucks, * crash test world not in catalog, * they tried to reboot mythbusters and failed horribly.

Ways not to discovered there's a greasy mess on the counter:

Half an hour after laying your ipad in it.

IOW, my fully automated luxury space communism is going to need more and more robots to support the needs of all my people, and I'm just like "no problem, time to make room for more robot production zones" instead of "maybe keep lots of L3 and fewer L4 and even fewer L5..."

I just realized that the _way_ I'm playing Autonauts kinda broadcasts my commie thinking. I'm building out level 4 housing, and I'm building exactly as many units as I have level 3, despite the fact that it costs a LOT more to support them. >

Had the opposite of an earworm this morning. A snippet of lyrics popped into my head, and by the time I could google it to figure out what the song was, it was gone. So I've been listening to various services all day trying to figure out wtf it was.

No, YOU have no comprehension of when you are and forgot it was a work holiday.

I am fully prepared for the age of intelligent robots. I already scold my roomba when it does something wrong, and I'm constantly telling the toilet not to be so needy.

I bought Autonauts 23 days ago and have played for 208 hours so far.

That's an average of 9 hours per day.

I have not played it every day.

Google has let me down: Does anybody know how Rihanna reacted to Holland's performance of Umbrella?

It’s a lot of machine just to stab somebody. And it’s not even lethal.
