Oh, the memories! There is so much to say, I don't even know where to start.

Perhaps I won't.

Just told my kid "I probably knew they glew in the dark when I bought them but I forgot" so now that is the past tense of "glow," update your dictionaries please.

Explaining to the 5yo that an apple a day keeps the doctor away by reducing the need for doctors visits, and not because it visits any harm upon doctors

This in response to him asking me how many apples it takes to kill a doctor

I am working on another project (when am I not?) that will scratch some of the design-itch and perhaps generate some income... but it wouldn't be anywhere near something to live on.

I should be happy to be employed. 

I thought I'd come to peace with it, deep down my brain does not want to completely accept my new work position.
The concept was "we have 7 designers and only you over there, so we'll merge you into our group."
Fine, but I was a graphic designer and these folks are engineers. They generally don't do any original design work and are only there to piece out artwork provided by customers.
I miss creating, where now everything seems to be made to feed the machine.

This feels like a kind of rambling sidebar, but there's a point:

Most tasks that computers are used for on a daily basis could be completed on much less powerful hardware if there wasn't a profit incentive in the way.

@TheGibson It's very easy to do, and undo.

With that user.js file in place, it flips things around so that the option is still there, but it turns it off by default. The user can enable it for a session, if they want to for some crazy reason, but it will flip back to disabled as long as that .js file is there with those contents.

Any changes to that setting (by Mozilla or the user) won't stick.

I'm wondering what it says about my life, that Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp all go out on the same day, and my daily routine isn't affected at all.

Hm, I'm guessing big box home improvement stores frown on customers using power tools in the parking lot? 🤔

(I can't fit uncut 2x10s into my car but I don't feel like dealing with the deep sighs and/or dirty looks I get from employees when I ask to have a couple of things cut in the store. It occurred to me I could just bring my battery-powered saw and cut shit down in the parking lot)

Work ramble 2 

They now want to do a time study with one of the designers from the new company to see what works more efficiently. Said designer commented that he'd quit his job if he has to change to what we're using.
Why do I feel the process is doomed, should I even put up a fight? Mostly I just want it out of my head after 6 months of this.

Work ramble 

Work, and how to stop thinking about it.

My employer was bought by a larger company and want to make all the software uniform including my design software. The problem is we have 20+ years of files with the current software, our publications department also uses the software, and our department that does the large-scale output also uses it.
The new company's publications department also uses the same software we do.

Software opinion 

"why even use Firefox at this point" because everything else is either Chrome or doesn't work or both

As with any new abode, there is always a learning curve. When the electrical panel was upgraded the electrician couldn't necessarily trace the circuits which were labeled things like "extra plug" and then disappear into 70 year-old walls.
The electrician put the same labels on the new panel as were on the old, and I'm cool with figuring it out.
Last night I figured out that the circuit labeled "toaster" is for a plug in the corner of the dining room, and not even close to the kitchen.
Why not?

Trying to diagnose why the doorbell at the new house makes a barely audible high-pitched sound and then fades away. I thought perhaps the hammer was getting stuck after hitting the chime, but decided to Google it.
According to the search it is most likely tinnitus.
Thanks for the diagnosis, doctor Google.

🦑 ☕️ Squid Cafe

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
