While I was banging on that box for the kids room I remembered when I was young and learning how to hammer I left some dents in the wood, as you do. Someone told me it was Irish moulding. That didn’t make any sense to me until like yesterday and then I realized how ridiculous it was.


Maybe they all had better things to do than nail up fancy house decorations eh?

I changed a few passwords today and I'm constantly forgetting and having to look them up. Now I feel old.

I can't remember if I shared this gem of a design so I'll share it again. It's a web form asking for a zip code in a drop down.

To its mild credit, it was a local site and there was a small range of acceptable zip codes but still.

KCMO has zero chill on this etax filing. I hope they get a sense of pride and accomplishment from having settled this account up.

Today I bought a box from ikea, painted it, altered it, mounted it on some spare brackets and then zip tied it to the top bunk so my kid has a shelf for her alarm clock.

This is the *best* interactive explanation of Fourier Transforms I've ever seen. Congrats!

Short ribs are a scam people, restaurants just buy long ribs and snap em into pieces.

I got my kid to start playing The Beginners Guide and I can’t wait to see what she thinks of it.

I personally am skeptical that it is real. I suppose I would be sort of surprised if I found out it was.

Truefact: I used to live in a house with central vacuuming. It was wild. Ports on all the walls you’d just plug in the end to and a canister unit in the garage.

I just realized it’s been a long time since I got a windows support scam call. Although, the last time someone did call I told them they were a bad person with no morals who should be ashamed and asked if their family knew what they did for a living.

ah wait there it goes. Now to try for everything.

I'm trying to see if AWS Comprehend can tell me anything interesting about my emails from 2018. So far I'm struggling just to extract and run topic analysis on two emails.

The measure app in IOS is awesome. I could do this myself but having a photo with built in measurements is super helpful and I’m gonna need all the help I can get at ikea.

@garbados js was designed as a scheme (which is a lisp) with c like syntax, and named Javascript because of Java's popularity then.

over the years, a lot of design ideas from Smalltalk were incorporated, too.

of course, Smalltalk's roots lie in lisp, because, where else?

i greatly suggest you also look at the CLOS, or MOP in general, which which perl, python, Ruby and Javascript all use

This scale is broken and full of lies and I’m sending it back

Also on that walk I remembered reindeer noses are mini heat exchangers. Seriously those animals have some sharp specializations:
