Aim a laser pointer at the moon, then move your hand the tiniest bit, and it’ll move a thousand miles at the other end. The tiniest misunderstanding long ago, amplified through time, leads to piles of misunderstandings in the present.
Passwords are simple and affordable. We were using them prior to computers (“Open sesame!”) and their understandability transferred easily.
I guess the point I’m trying to make here is that the problem with passwords is password hygiene, not with the method itself.
My son got a new Nintendo Switch, so I took his hand me down. It came with Breath of the Wild.
I’m not really one to play many video games, but I literally can’t put this thing down. I woke up this morning and played.
There goes my productivity for the next couple months…
I watched a few YouTube videos and learned how to sew hair extensions into my wife’s hair. They came out great.
Now, all of her friends are trying to make an appointment with me 😂
If running a software company doesn’t work out, I at least have a bright future doing hair! 💇♀️
Think freely. Practice patience. Smile often. Forgive and seek forgiveness.
Feel deeply. Tell loved ones how you feel.
Be soft sometimes. Cry when you need to. Observe miracles.
Long read, but well worth it. Beautiful article.
The president of Navajo Nation here in New Mexico freakin shreds in the new skatepark they just opened. Also, Tony Hawk was there…
Tonight, I accidentally signed up for Hot Yoga sculpt instead of the regular hot yoga. It was literally one of the most intense hours of my life. Apple Watch puts my heart rate in zone 5 for more than 50% of the workout (that’s like 170bpm).
By the time I got out, my head was spinning like I had just smoked 2 cigars and drank a few whiskeys.
So…I’m pretty sure I’m going again next week (on purpose this time).
I wonder if I accepted every meeting with growth agencies that can “guarantee” me new clients and ever recruiter that can “guarantee” me great developers, it would result in an infinite revenue glitch.
I have tried out BlueSky and just can’t get into it.
For now, I’m sticking with micro.blog and Mastodon
I spent last night presenting to our town’s Planning and Zoning commission (picture a courtroom with 6 judges and me standing at a podium) in order to obtain a short term rental permit for a house my wife and I recently renovated.
After about 1 full hour of discussion (among them, I’m not allowed to participate past my 3 minute presentation) around septic tanks, they finally ruled in favor of my permit.
It was a pseudo success as they added a condition that I upgrade the septic, which will cost north of $10K.
It was one of the more bizarre experiences of my life and I felt like I was in a real life episode of Parks and Rec.
TIL a new phrase from my wife:
Prom Legs noun When you don’t shave your legs for 2+ weeks. Then when you finally do, they are extremely smooth for prom (or any other occasion).
First road trip in the Tesla complete! Overall it was a great experience.Using Auto steer on the freeway makes the driver feel more like a passenger. While you still have to pay attention, it relieves the “driver fatigue” that you experience on long trips.
I was helping my 6th grader with his coding homework. I seriously don’t understand how a kid without a software dev as a parent is supposed to be able to help.
Today we worked on arrays and using the modulus (%) operator to draw a repeating bookshelf.
It was super fun.
“What becomes clear, though, is that good days are precious. When you’re feeling even a little creative, don’t wait. Write it down, roll tape, speak up. When you’re feeling reasonably healthy, go for a walk.
They’re all good days, if we choose.” Seth Godin
Does anyone have a Bluesky invite that they are are willing to share?
