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.

Watching a tv show recorded off broadcast... from April.

The world was a weird place back then.

I just referred to something as "firedog fine". as in, "It's fine. Firedog fine, but fine."

I realize this is my own fault. I was lazy, and used my personal email to create test accounts, instead of using a throwaway-email service.

But you should never have to mark your own employer as spam.

Can anybody suggest a good podcatcher that works on ios and macos, syncs between them, AND supports video? Downcast is not working out (the sync is flaky at best, ineffective most of the time).

"Then how can you explain that I can read your thoughts?"
"My thoughts are hard to miss."
"And why is that?"
"Psychically, I'm very well endowed."
"I'll bet you are."

This movie is _so bad_.

I’m really quite enjoying this guy’s content. vm.tiktok.com/J2EHYTR/

I’ll never need to start my own YouTube/podcast/24 hour news network now, I can just point to him.

Ok, I'm going away for - with any luck - the rest of the day. One last repost of the remaining copies of This is How You Lose the Time War.

Any that are still unclaimed tomorrow, I will return.

Updating my various budget spreadsheets and realizing just how much money I spend on "strangers on the internet"...

I was going to spend the weekend reading. Y'know, make some progress on my TBR pile. So far today I've been reading twitter, and have bought 4 new books and 8 new audiobooks, not counting the give-aways. sigh.

When someone is hosting your dns or web or email for you, it's polite to let them know when you're letting a domain expire, so they can stop hosting it.

Realized another mistake and switch to a v3 tool. 500 seconds to find 'martian'. still working on 'tithonium' and 'convivius'.

Sorry, that was inaccurate, wasn't it? 8 core, with hyperthreading or whatever, so linux says 16.

Just stopped myself from some excellent stupidity: Running eschalot with a 9-character prefix on Lich (dual core arm). Running it on Vela (16-core i9) instead, so maybe it'll finish some time this year.

I should have said people have to tag me when they redeem or something. Ah well.

If they're all gone in the morning (I don't see how they couldn't be) I'll see if anybody has a better idea for distribution, and if not just post the rest.

Ok, that seems like some people think it's a good idea. What's the right way to do this? Just buy them and post the links? I've seen that done, but it feels vaguely problematic. Make people DM or reply and DM the links back to the first N?

I am very VERY faintly intoxicated at the moment, and considering taking steps to remove the adverbs, but social distancing rules limit the ways you can take advantage of it at the moment. /shrug
