"United States Senate has a higher calling than an endless spiral of partisan vengeance..." Just what does McConnell think he's been doing for the past 12 years?

Lockdowns have not been good for my ADHD. Surviving, obviously, but it's more difficult and annoying.

Optimizing mouse for games is the problem. 🙄

Doesn't matter if I install the mouse driver with vmtools or not. WTF am I missing?

why does my mouse in VMware Fusion (win 10 guest) react the opposite way it is supposed to when VMtools is installed? Seamless mouse transition when not installed. Mouse pointer captured when installed.

Oof. It seems that Todoist is also having issues. Nobody wants me to get anything done today.

Today's issue is seriously annoying. We should have a "backup" plan for communications other than email.

Is it me or has Slack been having a lot of issues lately?

What a hellscape. I hate it. I’m sorry I’m not any more profound than a can of beans.

Fixed. redis-server version was too old. Upgraded. Service restored.

So, this means I should look into backing up this instance and installing on a new version of Linux. It's an Ubuntu LTS, but should be upgraded. Or, things like this will continue to become outdated and unable to upgrade without manual intervention.

Issues with this instance: Sidekiq keeps restarting after upgrading to 3.3.0. I think that is keeping authentication emails from being sent out if required. “Regular” email works just fine.

I see 330 is out. I will see if I can’t upgrade tomorrow. If I remember to do so.

Seeing if I like “positions” as much as I liked “sweetener” and “thank u, next”.

Halloween & Christmas arrived early!

I ordered several things over the past few months and they’re all arriving at the same time.

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
